Kathy’s Points to Remember

November 21, 2016

(I’ll bet you all thought I was never going to write one of these lists again! Well, I have to come back to this from time to time. It’s a habit.)

Remember this?

Remember this?

1. It is alright to criticize the President of the United States in public.

2. If you criticize the President of the United States in public, even to his face, you don’t have to apologize, because you didn’t do anything that you don’t have a right to do. This is true for all of us, including the cast of Hamilton. It is also true for journalists, humor writers and anybody else who wants to get in on the act.

3. Poking fun of the President of the United States is an old American tradition. We have been doing it for over 200 years, and we are not going to stop now, especially when we have a President who gives us so much rich material to choose from.

4. Has anyone ever told Donald Trump that he looks like an Orange Julius in a suit?

5. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. This means that a narcissistic misogynist who parades his ego in public was beaten by a woman, even though he ended up in the Oval Office, anyway.

Kathy Minicozzi

Kathy Minicozzi is an opera singer turned aspiring writer, who lives somewhere in New York City. In other words, she's weird, but harmless. She is the author of "Opera for People Who Don't Like It," in which she turns the world of opera and its performers upside down while, at the same time, making it understandable to non-opera lovers and making everyone laugh.

    You just made everything alright again for a few moments and maybe if everyone done the same, the moments might add up to more moments and multiples of more moment and stuff.

    Perhaps we could start an organization to defend 1st Amendment rights as vigorously as the NRA defends the 2nd Amendment. It could be the NPA (the National Protest Association)—or maybe Humor Outcasts. If you don’t like this idea, it’s your constitutional right to say so.

      I like the idea. I’m a Baby Boomer. Protesting is part of my DNA. So is making sarcastic remarks, but that’s a whole other story.
