An Open Letter to Donald Trump

cropped-bob-shapiro.jpg   By Bob Shapiro

Dear Mr Trump,

During your campaign speeches, you have referred to your Democratic opponent as “Crooked Hillary,” and the crowds have responded positively because they know you are speaking the truth. I suggest that you carry this line of attack forward into the remaining debates.

First, when Hillary comes out and makes a big show of shaking your hand – don’t do it. Look at her hand and say, “I don’t think so.”

Among other things, this will make an opening for you to explain why. I suggest that you say something like:

During my campaign stops, I have been referring to my opponent as Crooked Hillary. There is a reason for that – she is a corrupt, despicable person who will say anything, do anything, be anything, if she can get any kind of advantage from it. I didn’t shake Hillary’s hand because I have 5 fingers on my right hand – and because I want to have all 5 when I go home.

Scandal has followed her continuously from her early days. There’s the suspicious death (some would say murder) of Vince Foster and dozens of Hillary’s other associates, including more than one during this campaign. There is the Bribery Scandal known as Whitewater during her husband’s time as Governor in Arkansas. There is the Obstruction of Justice Scandal as she stole records from the Rose Law Firm.

There was TravelGate and the various Sex Scandals – including Paula Jones and Monica Lewinsky – which she helped cover up. There were the art objects that she stole from the White House when she and Bill left. There was Benghazi. There was the Private Email Server Scandal while she was Secretary of State. There was the Obstruction of Justice Scandal where Hillary deleted tens of thousands of emails which had been subpoenaed.

Hillary miraculously was not indicted or charged by the FBI with a massive National Security Breach. Others have gone to jail for much less, but FBI Director Comey said, ‘Nothing to see here folks, move along.’ And, there are more scandals.

Most recently, we have DebateGate. At our first debate, several things happened which help to demonstrate Hillary’s corruption. The moderator addressed almost every question to Hillary, and he interrupted me many more times than he stopped her.

The moderator referred to her as Secretary Clinton. Yes, she WAS Secretary of State, so I have no problem with her being called Secretary Clinton. I did so myself at the first debate. But, it does prejudice the audience. I AM Chairman of the Trump Organization. Is a government title worth more than a title from the Private, Productive Sector of the US Economy? If she’s going to be referred to as Secretary Clinton, then I should be Chairman Trump.

Hillary Clinton also was wired for sound, and there are public pictures circulating to back this up. She was getting coached from staff outside the debate. While there is nothing against that in the debate rules, the American people want and expect to hear what the candidates debating think. They don’t want to know what a secret voice in her earpiece thinks.

And while I’m on electronics, I complained – and the Federal Election Commission verified – that my microphone was not working properly. At least part of the debate audience could not hear what I was saying. A coincidence? I don’t think so!

And then finally, a 4-Time World Champion of Poker has verified that Hillary was giving hand signals to the debate moderator. I said ahead of time that the debate would be rigged, and all these things point out that I was right.

One more Scandal. In the United States, we have a Constitution. The Constitution is the highest law of the land. It’s been Amended 27 times. Until it gets Amended again, what it says is the Law of the Land. One thing it says is, ‘…the Right of the People to Keep and Bear arms shall not be infringed.’

Please note that this is even stronger language than other Amendments which say ‘Congress shall make no law…’ The 2nd Amendment says ‘Shall Not Be Infringed.’ That means nobody. Not Congress. Not the President. Not the Supreme Court. Not the States. Nobody!

While campaigning, Hillary has been promoting gun control. As she does that, she is promoting violation of the US Constitution. She is promoting Treason! Why would any American vote for a candidate who promotes Treason?

With all these Scandals, Hillary has proven herself unworthy of holding any public office, let alone the most powerful office on earth. Hillary does not deserve to be in the White House – she deserves to be in the Big House. Hillary does not deserve to be making US policy – she deserves to be making License Plates.”

That, Mr Trump, is what I suggest that you say – in front of 64 million Americans, where the liberal media can’t censor your remarks. Good Luck!

  1. “First, when Hillary comes out and makes a big show of shaking your hand – don’t do it. Look at her hand and say, “I don’t think so.””

    Boy – I hope he takes your advice. He’d lose the election on the spot.

    Anais Nin is often quoted as saying “We do not see the world as it is, we see the world as we are”.

    Trump sees corruption and theft everywhere, in everybody. Which either makes him a seer – or someone who sees the world as he is.

    There is sufficient financial evidence out there to suggest that he’s no seer.

    On a more factual note – did you see that the Whitewater Prosecutor, Michael Chertoff, just announced that he’s voting for Clinton? Did you not realize that she’s been investigated over and over again, and never prosecuted? (Often found to be innocent, in rare cases found to have made mistakes that the US routinely does not prosecute.)

    Did you watch the Presidential debate? Within the hall, Trump could not be easily heard. But in the feed to broadcasters (and the web), he was easily heard. With 80 million viewers, that’s only a few hundred who may have missed something.

    (And, for goodness sakes, gun control is not a violation of the 2nd Amendment. Gun control is LEGAL, to at least some degree. The rest is a matter of degree.)

    In the mean time, your non-Criminal Trump’s charitable Foundation has been found to be potentially violating the law by failing to register and provide required information, his business dealings were a failure so large he represented 1.9% of all the business failures in 1995, there’s evidence that he deliberately burned investors to relieve himself of debt burdens and to transfer wealth from his fiduciaries to himself, and so forth.

    I’ve got links – if you want them…. 🙂


  2. You think that Hillary is a nice, honest person. I get it, but I disagree.

    You think that Trump is worse. I get it, but I don’t know one way or the other. I like much of what he says, which cements my preference for him as being non-Hillary.


    • Eh. I think that Hillary Clinton is one of the smartest, most prepared people to ever run for the office of the Presidency. I think that she is not the most perfectly ethical human being to ever run for office – but that she is far from the worst, either.

      We could probably have a lot of fun comparing notes on the worst, and why. 🙂 I’ll start the fun by nominating Edwin Edwards. 🙂 (He’s way worse than the guys from Teapot Dome, or Bill Clinton’s little Willy…)

      You and I have differing political values. I understand that Clinton’s positions are not necessarily your own.

      I have trouble understanding which particular position the changeable Trump has held, that you think he’ll continue to hold. He’s been pro and anti life. He’s been pro and anti the Fed. He’s been pro and anti Clinton. 🙂 He’s been pro and anti all sorts of things. He wants to close tax loopholes, but not the ones he uses… He’s against the deficit but his tax proposals would balloon the deficit.

      There are jokes out there about flipping the Republican ticket. If Pence were running, I could understand how a consistently political and intellectual conservative would support Pence. (Or Cruz, Rubio, and so forth.)

      But erratic, corrupt, changeable, ignorant Trump? I’m with the smart faction of the Republican Party on this one – the guys that say “this guy is too dangerous to have as President”. I’m no fan of Gary “Aleppo Moment” Johnson, although I do think well of Bill Weld. (Who recently announced to the Boston Globe that he’s running against Trump more than anything…) Stein’s a fruitcake. 🙂

      Clinton? I think her positions are very moderate in most cases, she’s been pushed to campaign further left than I think she will really govern. The Right has gotten very good at endlessly repeating accusations that are thoroughly debunked. Smart minds recognize when their premises are wrong. She’s a good public servant. Many former politicians make good money in speaking fees. (

      They also join Boards of Directors, law or consulting firms, etcetera.

      For you, Clinton should be what George W. Bush was for me when he ran for President – an excellent public servant, ready to be President – who happens to hold differing political views than I do. I voted for him. 🙂 I hated his positions, but he was the better candidate.
