When I sat down at the kitchen table with my brother and my boyfriend with a stack of printed out Tweets, notecards, and an old glue stick I’d found in the craft drawer, I wasn’t expecting anything but an afternoon of crafty resistance to Trump’s latest racist, xenophobic executive order.
The plan? Turn Paul Ryan and Mike Pence’s hypocritical tweets about Trump’s immigration ban into postcards, to confront them with their own words and challenge them to live up to their principles.
OH DO YOU NOW?
Then I posted a pic of the finished postcards, annotated with red Sharpie, of course. People started asking for a template to print their own. So my brother and I made one.
And then thousands of people shared it on social media and NBC News came calling.
I mean, no bg deal, whatever.
This week has been craaaaaazy, y’all.
Please feel free to join me in sending these GOP leaders a stack of postcard versions of their hypocritical Tweets. The link to the printable template is right here: HEY, HYPOCRITES.
(Alternatively you can right click, or whatever, based on your OS, and save them from the images above.)
Print two per page as 4x6 postcards, either on cardstock or cut out from regular paper and paste to notecards. Believe me when I say after weeks of calling senators and signing online petitions, doing something tangible with your hands to fight back against Trump feels SO GOOD.
Pen + paper + postage = MAGIC
This is a situation where history will clearly and harshly draw a line between those who stood up for what's right and those who remained silent or chose the side of fear. To Paul Ryan and Mike Pence and all our elected officials, let’s deliver a simple message: it's not too late to do the right thing.
