Nine Artists’ Presidents’ Day Messages For Donald Trump

Dear Mr. President,

Wishing you and yours a happy motherfucking Presidents’ Day. To be honest we don’t usually celebrate Presidents’ Day, but this year for some reason we’ve been thinking a lot about what a leader should be, and about what sort of mess we’ve somehow landed ourselves in. Kind of a collective “Holy Shit” moment across this great land of ours. Just remember, when they say “the writing is on the wall” that’s not usually a good thing for the powers that be.

We reached out to a few friends who were good enough to share a few Presidents’ Day messages for you, or inspired by you, and in actual fact mostly for each other. Because the writing is definitely on the wall. Make of it what you will.
