It’s Time to Talk the Talk

By on June 1, 2020 in See It Here

Mr. President,

Instead of using twitter to slam “sleepy Joe Biden” and criticize governors in the front line of protests for not being tougher and then saying the world is watching you and laughing, maybe you oughta face the fact your oh-so-clever use of social media is–to use your words “a complete failure.”

I’ll make this brief since you don’t like long sentences or paragraphs.

Address the nation tonight.

Tell the country everyone understands the anger. Everyone gets that there is frustration. We all feel something is wrong in the senseless death of George Floyd in the hands, and knee, of a white cop in Minneapolis. We all agree it is wrong. We all agree we will do (not can do) better starting right now.

Tell the country the destruction of the church across the street from the White House fixes nothing. Tell the country driving a truck into protesters on a Minneapolis bridge fixes nothing. Tell the country burning stores in Tampa fixes nothing.

Then say something a lot of people haven’t heard from you.

We can’t make changes unless we talk to each other.

We’re not pointing fingers at each other anymore. We’re pointing fingers at ourselves because that’s where the solution will be found.

Make it one of your executive orders if that makes you feel better.
