Friends, I welcome you to "The Michael Moore Easy-to-Follow 10-Point Plan to Stop Trump."
First, let's acknowledge what we all know to be true: Trump is in deep, deep trouble -- in the pocket of Russians, surrounded by alt.right idiots, alone in his bathrobe in a mostly-empty White House -- and caught inside a disgusting "sh*t-sandwich", so said his supporter who turned down the NSA job.
Only one month into his So-Called Presidency -- and yet there is good news, as this is what the American landscape looks like:
" Tens of thousands of citizens across the country have stormed Congressional district offices and town hall meetings to express their rage at the Trump agenda (a dejected Republican congressman, after a 3-hour verbal assault from his angry constituents, said on TV last night, "let's face it - they [the Obamacare supporters] have won.").
" A federal court halted Trump's first Muslim Ban -- actually, make that FOUR federal courts have ruled against him! He's conceded defeat and will not appeal to the Supreme Court (though he will try a new ban - and good luck with that, you son of a Scottish immigrant).
" Progressive Democrat Congressman Keith Ellison appears to be the front-runner for this Saturday's vote to head the Democratic Party -- and to FIX the whole damn mess! Also, a recruitment drive has begun across the country to find the best local candidates to run for state and federal offices in 2018. Millions are committed to never letting the Debacle of '16 happen again.
" Our beautiful Army of Comedy - with its Platoon of Satirists led by Alec Baldwin and Melissa McCarthy - is killing it! The devastating impersonation of White House spokesman Sean Spicer by McCarthy has Trump fuming to the point where he has considered getting rid of Spicer. Politico says he simply can't watch one of his top aides being portrayed by... a woman!
So the momentum is with us right now -- and if we all just take a little time to do the Action Plan below, I'm convinced we'll succeed in halting the dark force that is Trump. We can tie him up in knots at every turn, and eventually, we can bring him down.
So let's get started with our...
10-POINT ACTION PLAN TO STOP TRUMP
1. THE DAILY CALL: You must call Congress every day. Yes - YOU! 202-225-3121. It will take just TWO MINUTES! Make it part of your daily routine, one of those five things you do every morning without even thinking about it:
1. Wake up.
2. Brush teeth.
3. Walk dog (or stare at cat).
4. Make coffee.
5. Call Congress.
It is impossible to overstate just how much power you have by making this simple, quick DAILY CALL. I know from firsthand experience the impact it has. These politicians freak out if they get just 10 calls on an issue. Imagine them getting 10,000! Holy crap - the dome will pop off that building!
NOTE: if you're saying to yourself, "I don't need to call because my rep is a Democrat!" -- that is NOT true. They need to hear from you. They need to know they have your support. Don't believe it? Our beloved Sen. Elizabeth Warren voted in favor of Ben Carson as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development! I'm sure no one in Massachusetts thought they had to call her. YOU DO! She and the other Dems need to hear from the boss -- YOU! They work for us - and what boss doesn't have daily contact with his or her employees?
It's easy to make The Daily Call. To call your U.S. member of Congress or Senators in D.C., dial 202-225-3121 (or 202-224-3121 if busy). It's even better to call their direct line. For Senators, find each of their numbers here: http://bit.ly/2kko0Ao. For the direct line to your member in the House of Representatives: http://house.gov/representatives.
Here's some great news: Someone has created an app to make this very easy: Go to the App Store and get "5 Calls". The app will dial the friggin' phone for you and give you talking points for when you speak to your reps!
