The Ides of Trump

By Zoe on Mar 14, 2017 05:30 am
Okay, today’s Takeback Tuesday isn’t about donating to a Good Cause. This one is fun and communal.

Tomorrow is the Ides of March, a day Julius Caesar would have cause to remember. To celebrate a day that changed Roman history, tomorrow has been declared #TheIdesofTrump.

I’d like all of us to dig out a postcard–or stationery, if you want to get all formal–and send #45 a note telling him exactly how you feel. As the planners of this event say:

Wednesday, March 15th, each of us will mail the president a postcard that publicly expresses our opposition to him. And we, in vast numbers, from all corners of the world, will overwhelm him with his unpopularity and failure. We will show the media and the politicians what standing with him — and against us — means. And most importantly, we will bury the White House post office in pink slips, all informing DT that his time in office in limited and that we will reject any attempts he and his allies make to reduce our freedom to speak, pray, travel, educate our kids, obtain affordable health care, breathe clean air, and leave our grandchildren a habitable planet.

They add:

Hank Aaron currently holds the record for fan mail, having received 900,000 pieces in a year. We’re setting a new record: over a million pieces in a day, with not a single nice thing to say.

They can’t build a wall high enough to stop the mail.

On March 15th (also known as today!), mail your postcards to:

President Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Let us know what you’ve posted, and check out their web site here. NOTE: If you can’t get it done until tomorrow, it’s okay. Because the weather has taken a few of us “offline” for the day!

  1. I like to think that a million postcards saying “You are garbage and ruining my world” might make him feel bad. It’s a thought. He gets upset when even a single comedian makes fun of him. How about if a million people do the same? Can’t hurt!

  2. My church,my writing group have all written Ides of Trump postcards.
    One thing I wrote was “The Constitution is NOT a suggestion. ”
    An 88 year old friend simply wrot “Shame on you”
    I hear someone actually has to read all the mail addressed to the White House.

    • I know. But I figure a million postcards, whether or not he reads them, mean something. Besides. It’s just a postcard. We need to do something and this IS something. I wish there was more. Maybe there WILL be more, eventually, but for now? We do what can, little as it. is. Thank you very much for the information. To be fair, I just figured that a guy as thin-skinned as whathisname is going be upset by all those postcards. Even if he never reads so much as one of them.

  3. Great idea if only to relieve frustration. And even if he manages to dismiss a mountain of postcards as fake news word will get out. Like letters to Santa in “Miracle on 34th Street”.
