Bamz was much nicer than we would have been.


There's a tradition that every time a U.S. American president hands the keys over to a new guy (it was supposed to be a new girl this year, but, you know, the Apocalypse), they leave a letter saying nice things the new president might find helpful. They all do it, and in a very bipartisan way, the letters are all very nice. Barack Obama's outgoing letter to Donald Trump was no different, except for how one million times, in very subtle language, he had to keep explaining to this Fuckin' New Guy how confusing things like "America" work.

CNN got its paws on the whole letter and printed it. Let's have a lookie!

Dear Mr. President -

Oh, Bamz, must we use such language?

Congratulations on a remarkable run. Millions have placed their hopes in you,

Only three million fewer than your opponent!

and all of us, regardless of party, should hope for expanded prosperity and security during your tenure.

This is a unique office, without a clear blueprint for success, so I don't know that any advice from me will be particularly helpful.

But since you're a fucking idiot who doesn't know anything about anything, let's give this shit a whirl.

Still, let me offer a few reflections from the past 8 years.

First, we've both been blessed, in different ways, with great good fortune. Not everyone is so lucky. It's up to us to do everything we can (to) build more ladders of success for every child and family that's willing to work hard.

Second, American leadership in this world really is indispensable. It's up to us, through action and example, to sustain the international order that's expanded steadily since the end of the Cold War, and upon which our own wealth and safety depend.

So all that bullshit you spout about NATO paying its bills? Can it, pumpkin. And READ A BOOK.

Third, we are just temporary occupants of this office. That makes us guardians of those democratic institutions and traditions -- like rule of law, separation of powers, equal protection and civil liberties -- that our forebears fought and bled for.

For more on "rule of law" and "separation of powers" and "equal protection" and "civil liberties," please check your local Wikipedia. He'd suggest going straight to the Constitution, but he knows and we know that's way above 45's reading level.

Regardless of the push and pull of daily politics, it's up to us to leave those instruments of our democracy at least as strong as we found them.

He's literally imploring the new president to please not destroy America.

And finally, take time, in the rush of events and responsibilities, for friends and family. They'll get you through the inevitable rough patches.

Barack Obama had Michelle and Beyoncé and Hillary Clinton and a million other people, whereas Trump has human sloppy seconds like his glue-eating firstborn and Roger Stone, but for real, friendship is the best.

Michelle and I wish you and Melania the very best as you embark on this great adventure, and know that we stand ready to help in any ways which we can.

Good luck and Godspeed,

You'll need it, you dumb cocksnort!

HE SIGNED IT FROM THE WHITE HOUSE DOG? That's hilariously rude!

Just fooling, those are Barry Bamz's initials. We knew that.

CNN says Trump liked this letter so much he tried to call Obama on Inauguration Day to thank him, but alas, the 44th president of the United States couldn't take the call, probably because he was busy doing literally anything else besides listening to Donald Trump's stupid face noises.

David Axelrod reacted:

Sad indeed!

Want to tickle your own funny bone this morning? Imagine what Trump's letter to the next president will look like.

SPOILER, it will just say "Grab 'em by the pussy" and it will be finger-painted in poo.

And now for some very serious TUT TUTTING! It's time again for Republicans to make sad words about President Treason McTraitorpants selling out the country. This time they are seriously concerned, nay even deeply troubled, that Donald Trump would stand next to Vladimir Putin and pretend the Russians didn't hack the 2016 election. These patriotic Republicans are shocked, SHOCKED! Well, not, like, upset enough to do anything about it -- not with a fascist carpooler to jam into the Supreme Court. But they've got tweets, so it's all good!

Republicans are in a pickle. Midterms are coming up and the party in the White House usually loses seats in those elections. It doesn't help their chances that their guy Donald Trump frolics through fields holding hands with self-made Russian dictator and coincidental poisoner Vladimir Putin, who our own justice department believes attacked our mostly free elections and our true national monument, the Internet.

If you're as old as I am, you'll recall that back in the 1980s, the whole Republican brand involved not trusting the Ruskies, and they were especially disappointed when Kevin Costner turned out to be one in No Way Out. Now, the current Republican president is talking like some kind of crazy commie lib, bashing the FBI and giving the benefit of the doubt to a former KGB agent. During an interview Sunday where he wore a hat with "USA" in big letters on it, presumably so someone could easily return him if he got lost on the field trip, Trump went so far as to call the European Union a "foe" of his country, which if you believe his hat is supposedly the United States not Russia.
