The following Letter to the Editor was sent to USA Today and the Times -- as a memo/tweet, poetic postscript to the election:

To: Donald Trump

From: Nancy Pelosi


The election is over and the vote is now known.

The will of the people has clearly been shown.

So let's all get together and let differences pass.

I'll investigate your elephant.

And you can kiss my donkey.
