George Washington @founder

Honest, Abe, I'm spinning in my grave about this new #POTUS

Abraham Lincoln @therealabelincoln

Tell me about it, George. Another #PresidentsDay is nigh and all I can think is President Tr- Noooo! I can't even say the name of this clow-

George Washington @founder1

 I think you ran out of characters there, Abe. #Twitter only allows 140 per tweet.

Abraham Lincoln @therealabelincoln

 140 characters? What kind of loony form of communication is that? Imagine: Four score and seven years ago our fore--sorry folks, that's 140

George Washington @founder1

Well, you get used to it. So this new #POTUS. What gives? What did we #Founders do wrong?

Abraham Lincoln @therealabelincoln

Don't blame yourself, George. It's a govt of, by, and for the #people. You heard that one up here, right?

George Washington @founder1

Yep. Inspiring words. But the #people. Our beloved We, the people. What's with them? Have they no respect for the office of #POTUS anymore?

Abraham Lincoln @therealabelincoln

Seems so. Guess I was wrong. You CAN fool all the #people all the time. Course she did win, that woman. Popular vote. 2.8 million more.

George Washington @founder1

Indeed. Guess lil' Jimmy Madison and the boys steered us wrong with that Electoral College.

Abraham Lincoln @therealabelincoln

Ya think? So tell me. Just what was that gross distortion of democracy all about anyway?

George Washington @founder1

Oh, kissing the keister of the South as usual. With slaves as 3/5 of a person, but not voting, the South got a big boost in the EC.

Abraham Lincoln @therealabelincoln

And strangled democracy in its crib. So now the whole country is stuck with the EC. And President Tr--Nooooooooooo!

George Washington @founder1

So did you read what #POTUS tweeted last night?

Abraham Lincoln @therealabelincoln

Sorry, I don't follow the jerk. Or the news anymore. #CNN's a joke and don't get me started about #FOX. Talk about fooling people!

George Washington @founder1

Agreed. From #POTUS huge mouth straight to cable news. Jefferson said he'd prefer a free press to a free govt. Wonder what he thinks now?

Thomas Jefferson @Monticellomaster

Glad you asked. I think 1) #POTUS is crazy, certifiably. 2) Cable news only thinks of ratings. 3) That FBI director should be prosecuted.

Abraham Lincoln @therealabelincoln

But it's really all about our Clown in Chief, no? When will he act presidential? Imagine insulting vets? Groping women? Tweeting the Americ-

George Washington @founder1

140 characters, Abe. Remember? And hey, what about your party? The so-called Grand Old Party? Proud of 'em, Abe?

Abraham Lincoln @therealabelincoln

Jeez, George, rub it in. No, I'm not proud. The GOP I knew would have spit out a joker like this. Maybe they will yet.

George Washington @founder1

Don't hold your breath, Abe. But at least the people are up in arms. Those marches do make a dead president come to life.

Abraham Lincoln @therealabelincoln

Verily, there is a stirring of freedom in the people now. Some people. What was it Jefferson said about rebellion?

Thomas Jefferson @Monticellomaster

I said, "I hold it that a little rebellion every now and then is a good thing. And as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical."

George Washington @founder1

Brilliant. Ol' Tom has no trouble nailin' it in 140.

Abraham Lincoln @therealabelincoln

Well, I'm about done. Don't even want to think about our #ClownPOTUS.

George Washington @founder1

 Cheer up, Abe. This, too, shall pass. And sooner than four years, I'm betting.

Abraham Lincoln @therealabelincoln

We'll see, George. We'll see. Happy #POTUS Day.

George Washington @founder1

Same to you. My best to Mary.
