#TheIdesofTrump: A Call to Flood President Trump with Postcards

A new anti-Trump demonstration is in the works. But this time, it’s in the form of writing.

A social media post that encourages people to flood President Trump with postcards has gone viral. Activists are calling on users to mail Trump a postcard on March 15th. The idea is to get enough people to voice their opposition to where the public’s concerns can no longer be ignored.

The movement has been deemed #TheIdesOfTrump. The word “ides” refers to “The Ides of March”a date that corresponds to March 15 on the Roman calendar. March 15, 44 B.C. was also the day that Julius Caesar was assassinated. The date is associated with doom.

The original social media post reads:

On March 15th, each of us will mail Donald Trump a postcard that publicly expresses our opposition to him. And we, in vast numbers, from all corners of the world, will overwhelm the man with his unpopularity and failure. We will show the media and the politicians what standing with him—and against us—means. And most importantly, we will bury the White House post office in pink slips, all informing Donnie that he’s fired!

Each of us—every protester from every march, each Congress-calling citizen, every boycotter, volunteer, donor, and petition signer—if each of us writes even a single postcard and we put them all in the mail on the same day, March 15th, well: you do the math.

No alternative fact or Russian translation will explain away our record-breaking, officially-verifiable, warehouse-filling flood of fury. Hank Aaron currently holds the record for fan mail, having received 900,000 pieces in a year. We’re setting a new record: over a million pieces in a day, with not a single nice thing to say.

So sharpen your wit, unsheathe your writing implements, and see if your sincerest ill-wishes can pierce Donald’s famously thin skin. (Dump Despicable Donnie! He’s not my President! Impeach Dumpy Donnie! Not smart enough to be my President! Stop walking all over our Constitution! Donnie the dictator belongs in Russia!).

Prepare for March 15th, 2017, a day hereafter to be known as #TheIdesOfTrump

Write one postcard. Write a dozen! Take a picture and post it on social media tagged with #TheIdesOfTrump! Spread the word! Everyone on Earth should let Donnie know how he’s doing. They can’t build a wall high enough to stop the mail.

Then, on March 15th, mail your messages to:

President (for now) Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

It might just be enough to make him crack.

    This should be done on the 15th of every month. Various organizations should sell postcards as fundraisers: Planned Parenthood, ALT-NPS, and any other group that is attacked by the Trump administration. Flood the WH every month with postcards citing specific causes. It will also provide much needed money for the fight.

    Please stop showing off and do what we the people need. Peace, love and serenity?

    Seems like a good idea–but it’s not getting any press. Unless it gets more, it won’t work.

    To maximize the amount of mail delivered on one day at the White House. the date you mail should be a function of your zip code: in California, mail on March 10; in Washington DC mail on March 14; etc. Can someone prepare such a table of zip codes?

      i think the idea is to have all the postcards postmarked on March 15th – the Ides of March.

      No need to overthink this. Everyone mails their cards on the same day. That’s it.

    Hey y’all – this website (www.theidesoftrump.net) has a bunch of postcards to choose from that you can send to Donald Trump. And part of your purchase is donated to your choice of Planned Parenthood or the ACLU. Check it out 🙂

      Those are some slick postcards for $3 each. Which can get pricey if we want to make an impression with tons of mail. DAMgirls is selling authentic women’s march photos from women who marched, for less than $1 ea. and if you buy 100, the price is @40cents ea. DAMgirls.com.

    I’m going to send a post card telling Trump how much I appreciate what he has done and is planning to do. I encourage all Trump supporters to do the same!!

    Use the advanced technology that you have on your phone to remember. Set a calendar item for March 10 and March 15 to do this.

    “One Equal World” should put a calendar link on this page, to make it easy

    You walking, talking Asshole for a face pathological liar and hypocrite are an embarrassment to the Office. You are not and never will be the true President. Make America great by resigning before you are impeached.

      Just came across this great resource that allows you to print your own pre-made postcards at home: http://falladaproject.org/

    This sounds like a good idea BUT Trumps “people” will probably collect the postcards and show him how many he received but not let him actually read them. They’ll spin it so it looks like they’re messages of love and support:( It will feed his ridiculous ego even more!

    You do realize there’s an internal post office in the white house. He has said there will be no “ugly”mail sent to him. Great idea,but he’ll never see them. Probably won’t even know about it. I wish it would work.

    Post this more so everyone sees it and to remind them!
    Great idea!!
