Postcard Campaigns

Dump Postcards on Trump on March 15, #TheIdesOfTrump

Are you stocked up on postcards and 34-cent stamps yet?

Consider mailing a few postcards to President Trump on March 15, which organizers are calling the Ides of Trump.

The goal of the movement is to get more than a million postcards off to Trump on March 15, none of which have anything good to say.

Postcards should go to:

President Trump

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW

Washington D.C. 20500

The Ides of Trump folks encourage you to take a photo of your postcard before mailing and put it up on social media. If you post to Twitter, use the hashtag #TheIdesofTrump

Here is a link through which you can purchase postcard stamps:

While we at OTYCD urge you to be civilized, the postcard messages should make clear that you are not happy with Trump.

Some messages that could work:

“Nevertheless, we persist.”

“John McCain was much funnier than you on his episode of SNL.”

“Release your tax returns.”

If you’d like a fine, subtle, albeit pricey way to troll Trump, you can purchase postcards of Titian’s painting of Danae.

Danae is a mortal princess from Greek mythology who was impregnated by the god Zeus when he visited her in the form of–no joke–a golden shower.

Here’s the link through which you can order the Danae postcards (warning–the company is in the UK, so the postcards and the shipping will be on the expensive side of things):
