Dear Mr. President:
On Sunday, a former state senator from Ohio appeared on CNN to discuss the nonstop media coverage of the investigation into Russia and the 2016 election. Her name is Nina Turner, and there’s not an intelligent person alive who would disagree with what she said on national TV.
“Nobody in Ohio is asking about Russia,” said Turner. “They want to know about jobs. They want to know about their children.” She added, “Yesterday, I spoke to an African-American baby boomer who lives right here in DC. Russia is not in his top 5. He believes both parties are failing.”
She went on to list the many people she speaks with on a daily basis, and what matters most to them. She said, “If we were to go to Flint, they wouldn’t ask about Russia and Jared Kushner, they’d want to know how they are going to get some clean water, and why 8,000 people are going to lose their homes.”
Turner, who is African American, said that everyday Americans are being left behind. She then passionately asked CNN host Dana Bash, “Do we really need all 535 members of the congress to deal with Russia?” Avoiding the question, Bash didn’t provide an answer — she moved on to another topic.
I share this story because Ms. Turner is 100% correct — people don’t care about Russia. They don’t care about the “fake news.” They care about their health, money, family and safety. Therefore, I urge you to tap into this open opportunity.
I understand it is not easy to be attacked by the media. But if you can find it within yourself to IGNORE these news outlets by sticking to the narrative of making America great again, I promise that you will receive the love and appreciation you deserve.
You have to reconnect with the American people like you did during the campaign. Thus, tomorrow night I will humbly offer ideas about reconnecting with the people identified by Ms. Turner .
Until then, the rumor is you’re looking to make some staffing changes. Although Sean Spicer denied such a thing during his press briefing today, your former deputy campaign manager, David Bosie, confirmed on Fox & Friends this morning that he is being considered for a role in your administration.
There is nothing wrong with making changes to your team, and I’m sure most of your supporters would encourage you do so. But I urge you to rethink the hiring of Mr. Bosie.
I’m sure he did a swell job during the campaign, but bringing him on now will only add to the negative headlines.
The media will drill into the fact that he is the president of Citizens United, and it was Bosie who spearheaded the movement to allow businesses to fund campaigns with unlimited amounts of cash. I do not know of a single voter from either side of the aisle who favors such a thing. Therefore, with all due respect, the narrative that comes with hiring Bosie doesn’t help the cause.
Until tomorrow, may God bless you, our troops, the American people, and these United States.
