Dear President Elect Trump – Please Be A Good President!

Dear Mr. Trump, 


Congratulations on being elected our nations president! What an accomplishment considering that you had no prior political experience and the main stream media wrote you off.  I’m excited to hear the fresh new ideas you have for America coming in as a non traditional political figure.  


Now that all of the pleasantries are aside, let’s talk turkey! First of all, no one has to tell you that there are a whole slew of folks who simply don't like you. Maybe they fear you or they feel threatened I don’t know but I know one thing, they think you are the devil with a combover.  


So with that said, I have something very important to ask you and I hope you think deeply about it:  So here it goes…Will you please be a good president?  


I’m serious, will you please be a good president and prove all the naysayers wrong.  Please do what you say you're going to do and for God’s sake please be willing to hear all sides.  Don’t be the dictator your critics say you’ll be and please, please, pretty please do not be a racist, homophobic, misogynistic, Islamophobic, whateverelse-phobic person “they” say you are.  


Please be strong when you need to be strong, sensitive when you need to be sensitive and in all things a leader of the people. Please be as “amazing”, “Tremendous” and “Terrific” as you say you will be.  Please be a good president! 


Now before you take office, can I ask that you consider working on a couple of things that are really bugging me?  


#1) Can I ask that you please work on your language?  It’s really raw sometimes and my kids think you have “potty mouth?” 


#2) Can you please ask someone with a good filter to approve your Tweets?  I appreciate you bypassing the biased liberal media and going direct with your message via Twitter but I think you need to get someone to help you make sure that the Tweets you send out are as presidential as they can be.  Please don’t take this wrong, but sometimes your Tweets come across more emotionally charged than they should be and it makes me wonder if someone should have held your thumbs back and let you cool off first before you typed them and sent them.  I’m just saying! 


#3) Finally, if you repeal the Affordable Healthcare Act will you please do what you have to do actually make healthcare affordable?  There is no reason in the world that healthcare for my family should be as much as my mortgage if I want a decent deductible.  If you do this, you will become the country’s BFF in a serious way! 


That’s it! That’s all I have.  I just want to you to be the man you sold us that you are and here’s the deal, if you are planning on making America Great Again, then by golly get it done…OR You’re Fired!  <— I thought you might find that amusing! 


Proud American!
