President's Day invitation

Today I received an invitation via email from Congresswoman Jackie Walorski inviting me to "sign" a Happy Presidents' Day card for President Trump.

Here was my response:

Dear Jackie.
Today is a Federal Holiday, but it is not Presidents Day.  It is officially, by an act of Congress, Washington's Birthday.  Later attempts to rename the holiday were unsuccessful.  I am disappointed that as a Congresswoman you do not even know the official holiday that is celebrated today.   So, go ahead and wish Mr. Trump a happy Washington's birthday.  It celebrates a man who was know for always telling the truth.  Maybe Mr. Trump could learn something from our first President.
