My Letter to America’s New President

Dear Donald John Trump (Drumpf),

Firstly your parents must hate you because that is a mouthful to say. I mean your father did only give you a small loan of a million dollars if he really loved you he probably would have given you more.

However, I’m not discussing your daddy issues or the fact you had to work your way up the ladder today. I’m congratulating you on winning the US election because, in all honesty, I don’t know how you did it.

I mean America didn’t have an easy choice. This years election was a bit like the difference between HIV or AIDS. You’re screwed either way.

Some of your supporters said they voted for you because you tell the truth. And I’m not disagreeing with that statement, you are quite honest. A bit like when children have no filter in their brain and just say the first thing that comes out their mouth. But that’s cute on children.

However, your honesty makes me uncomfortable. As a woman, I am concerned and infuriated that you openly said that because you’re rich and famous means you can “grab them by the pussy” and it won’t matter.  Doesn’t matter whether you’re rich or not you can only grab someone by the genitalia with their consent.

It’s not okay that you discriminate large groups of people due to a small percentage of their followers. Whether this is due to their religion, race or sexuality.

There are always going to be bad apples. Because unfortunately, we are not as perfect as you.

Are you expecting things to go back to the way they were? Back when the gay had to hide in fear? Back when people of any colour but white had to worry about getting attacked because they were openly hated? And are women expected to go back into the kitchen?

Problem is I really can’t cook, so don’t know what you expect me to do in the kitchen. And it’s difficult hiding when you’re this fabulous.

I’m not saying Hillary Clinton would have been any better of an option. As lovely as it would be for America to have a female president, she has her own flaws as well.

Good luck for the next 4 years. I hope your next spray tan is patchy.

Kind regards,

Someone who is glad Britain isn’t the only one who fucked up
