Fireside Chat

From his elevated perch, @realDonaldTrump scatters seeds of wisdom in 140 characters or less, emulating the Fireside Chat, which was how President Franklin D. Roosevelt comforted and reassured the country throughout the Depression and WWII.

The Wee Folk Players (They’re a Stitch) set designers decorated his nest in a comfortably rich style, evoking a shock and awe, yet homey atmosphere. The crew hauled in a cozy bookend fireplace and built a wool fleece fire to warm the White House hearth.

Humbled and honored to play the unifying role of President of the United States, he tweets, “@POTUS – the American people. SO THERE, all of you sad, dishonest, failed phonies, fakes and scumbags, I WON, I WON, I WON! Believe me.”

  4. I’ve not been watching any of the sad events going on in DC. I’m grateful for the peaceful transition of power but oh so very sad. Your tableau makes me smile through the sadness. Creativity and artists like you help to keep hope alive. Thank you.

  5. Salley, you naughty woman you!!Hehe. You’re having way too much fun with this project.I Methinks you’ll ( sadly) have much to poke fun at in the next few months and (ugh) years?!!
    Loving your wonderful sense of humour.Clever you!! Keep it up. When is the Book coming out?!!

    • Thanks for your encouragement Judy. Yes, there’s a lot of material out there. Though, soon I will be changing gears to working on a children’s book about an entirely different subject. I’m not sure how or if I can do both projects simultaneously. The future is uncertain in so many ways!

  6. Thank you Salley, you have made it so much easier to watch the debacle of Trump and his group parading through our beloved Washington DC. I never thought I’d live to see the day Trumpty Dumpty was elected President. I love the Wee Folk, keepem coming.

  9. Love, love, love The Tweeter. And did you say “Air Head”? Oh wait! You were more polite than that with your “down filled” uniform (which does include his head, after all). Please do keep it up. You are one of the bright spots in this sad moment in time.

  10. Cracks me up! What a busy bird he’ll be. Well, we have to laugh at something today, or cry.
