FOR THE PRESIDENT’S EYES ONLY
Dear President TRUMP,
I must issue this dire warning: There is a cancer on our democracy! There is a crisis so severe, a menace so insidious, a peril so evil, it threatens to rip apart the fabric of our society! And here it is:
I think Lindsey Graham might be a racist!
It’s true! Did you hear what he said when you told those brown congresswomen who call themselves The Squad to “go back” to the “totally broken and crime infested places from which they came”?
Here’s what Lindsey Graham said:
"We all know that (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) and this crowd are a bunch of communists.”
This is nothing but a badly disguised dog whistle that Lindsey Graham is blowing to work his white supremacist whack jobs into a froth! Can you imagine what a soulless, disgusting, gutter slime it would take to say something like that?! Reminds me of Joe McCarthy!*
I know, I know. You’re saying, “But Carl, I like Joe McCarthy! He’s a great supporter of mine and a terrific House Minority Leader.”
And I say to you, with all due respect, that’s Kevin McCarthy.
After you tweeted, “IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!” here’s what Kevin McCarthy said:
“I believe this is about ideology; this is about socialism versus freedom.”
*By the way, Joe McCarthy was a Wisconsin senator who ruined hundreds of people’s lives and terrorized the country in the 1950s by accusing everybody to the left of Richard Nixon** of being a commie. If you look up “demagogue” in the dictionary, there’s a picture of Joe McCarthy.
I hear a rumor that Webster’s is planning to update the next edition.
**By the way, Richard Nixon was our 37th president. Nixon would have been impeached for bugging political opponents, harassing activists, covering up a botched burglary of Democratic national headquarters, and all kinds of corruption and tax evasion charges. But guess what?
On the eve of impeachment, Nixon had enough integrity, respect for the law, and care for his country to fall on his sword and resign.
Can you imagine?
Where was I? Oh right—the racist Lindsey Graham. Did you see those videos of him and Pence touring the migrant detention center? You know—the one where those refugees were packed together like Jews on a train to Auschwitz?
The one where they were separated from their children without even knowing where they were?
The one where they didn’t have room to lie down to sleep and when they did, they had to lie on a concrete floor with no blankets?
The one where they had no bathroom, no shower, no soap, and were told to drink out of a toilet?
The one where the stench was so bad the guards had to wear face masks?
Here’s what Pence said:
“And while we hear some Democrats in Washington, D.C., referring to U.S. Customs and Border facilities as ‘concentration camps,’ *** what we saw today was a facility that is providing care that every American would be proud of.”
Pence is right! Every American WOULD be proud of the care the migrants are receiving—if they were getting food and water and a shower and a place to sleep and a judicial hearing.
And if they weren’t being separated from their babies.
But not the racist Lindsey Graham! He’s at it again with his revolting tirades! Here’s what he said:
“I don’t care if they have to stay in these facilities for 400 days. We’re not going to let those men go that I saw.”
***Speaking of dictionaries and concentration camps, here’s how Webster’s defines “concentration camp”:
: a place where large numbers of people (such as prisoners of war, political prisoners, refugees, or the members of an ethnic or religious minority) are detained or confined under armed guard.
My point is, Lindsey Graham is a vicious racist and must be stopped! You called out Nancy Pelosi for being a racist; you should call out Lindsey Graham too! Here’s how you called out Nancy Pelosi:
"Speaker Pelosi said 'make America white again,' that's a very racist statement.”
Thank you, Mr. President, for finally putting Pelosi in her place! She went too far when she tweeted:
“When @realDonaldTrump tells four American Congresswomen to go back to their countries, he reaffirms his plan to “Make America Great Again” has always been about making America white again.”
Nancy’s so ill-informed! Doesn’t she know you have a person of color who works for you?
Which person of color was Pence’s chief-of-staff Mark Short referring to when he said this:
“When people write that the president has racist motives, look at who's actually serving in Donald Trump's cabinet.”
B. Tiger Woods
C. The cleaning lady at Mara Lago
D. None of the above
A. No. Amarosa is long gone.
B. No. You went golfing with Tiger Woods, but technically he doesn’t work for you.
C. No. The Mara Lago cleaning lady is hiding with her husband and children in a Quaker family’s basement.
D. Correct! None of the above! And the answer is:
No, it’s not Ben Carson. He’s your HUD secretary. Ben thinks having a cabinet position means getting to buy $30,000 cabinets with government money.
But that’s not who Pence’s chief-of-staff was talking about. Still stumped? I’ll give you one more hint:
Who is Mitch McConnell’s wife?
Oh, come on, Mr. President! You’ve met her! She’s your Transportation Secretary. She’s Asian. And her name is:
And guess what? Now the racist House Democrats are planning to investigate Elaine Chao just because she’s Asian!
Also because she funneled $78 million into her husband Mitch’s pet highway projects in Kentucky.
And now the racist Democrats are at it again! They just singled out Labor Secretary Alex Acosta just because he’s Hispanic!
Also because he gave sex trafficker Jefferey Epstein a deal that only a billionaire could afford.
But you summed it up best about Alex Acosta when you said this:
“He’s Hispanic, which I so admire because maybe it was a little tougher for him and maybe not.”
Which brings me back to my question: Do you think Lindsey Graham is a racist?
Maybe. Maybe not.
In 2016, Lindsey Graham called you a “race-baiting, xenophobic bigot.”
But in 2018, Lindsey Graham said this about you:
“He’s not, in my view, a racist by any stretch of the imagination. I have never heard him make a single racist statement. Not even close.”
The burning question in America today is: Is Lindsey Graham a racist?
Maybe. Maybe not. Who knows?
P.S. In 2016, Lindsey Graham also called you a “jackass.”
P.P.S. Please send a photo to my grandson Lester. He asks you to send him the one where your mouth is open so wide we can see your tonsils, and you’re yelling about how The Squad has been “spewing some of the most vile, hateful, and disgusting things ever said by a politician in the House or Senate.”
P.P.P.S. Please autograph it. Lester asks you to write:
I know you are, but what am I?
Donald J. TRUMP
