I Write Letters

[Content Note: Bigotry; privilege.]

Dear Important White Dudes:

I really love all your hot takes on how Donald Trump isn't entertaining anymore. Just terrific stuff. Totally trenchant.

You know, some of us People Who Don't Matter never thought he was entertaining in the first place.

If you're contemplating a thinkpiece on Trump not being fun anymore, how about instead a reflectpiece on why you ever thought he was.

Here's your thesis: Finding Trump entertaining is a luxury of the privilege the people he targets with his rhetoric don't have.

I figured I'd make it easy on y'all, since you plagiarize me constantly anyway then claim you've never heard of me. Enjoy the freebie!

But if you'd prefer to just plagiarize me as usual, here you go.

No Love,
