While “Kumbaya” is a swell little song, sitting around singing it, holding signs and such doesn’t accomplish much, especially with a US President that can’t or won’t read. Although a tad long in the truth for this it seems to me that the best way to get the attention of rich, arrogant people is to start costing them money, the more the better. If a few energetic souls would start keeping track of all the people coming and going from Trump’s businesses or the businesses he works with and use same to create a National Boycott List (NBL). There are lists of all the companies that donated to Trump so put ’em onto the NBL. I like the idea of taking pictures of folks coming and going from Trump’s hotels and resorts then publishing same with “Who Are These People?” and are we putting money into their pockets so they can feed the Trump machine? So many rich people apparently have a huge disconnect problem in that they don’t realize who we really are: CUSTOMERS. Not.

As a kid we were supposed to love clowns. Although to be honest they did, and still do, creep me out. Having Donald Trump as President isn’t helping. Bozo as President goes beyond the pale on the creep-out scale. Most protests I’m seeing are thought and issue based which is nice and all but we’re trying to reach the brain dead here so subtly is off the table. One common trait I see is a virtual lack of humor combined with a dread of being laughed at. I propose a contest to create an image of Trump as a clown to be used as the rallying image of the anti-Trump movement. Scary Clowns. Bozo as President. “Trumpy The Clown” Envision mass demonstrations with the demonstrators coming as Trumpy The Clown. Maybe it’s just me but I think that being continuously ridiculed in such a way literally “trumps” Alternative Facts.

Message I sent to Trump:
Allow me to introduce myself. I am a 69 yr. old college educated woman of average looks and a little over weight. One of millions who will be watching every move you make. This is not a threat it is a promise.
Many people have said they would leave the country if you were elected. I have chosen to stay and fight. I will not allow you to bully me.
I do not believe you understand the importance of your role as president of the United States . This is not one of your companies that if it does not work out you can declare bankruptcy and walk away. What you do as president affects the whole world.
I know you think Putin has great respect for you. I believe he sees you as a man with a weak ego and easy to manipulate. He will use you to get what he wants, to bring this country to its’ knees.
You have not even been inaugurated yet and already you have jeopardized our relationship with China and made racism okay. Good Job! Just so there is no confusion that was sarcasm.
The only people glad you were elected are the white supremacists, religious fanatics, people not sophisticated enough to see through your double speak and comedians (come on the jokes write themselves).
You are a prime example that money cannot buy everything. Your lack of intelligence and class are astounding. Man up, act like the president of one the most powerful nations in the world and not the petulant child we have seen to date.
