Trump's letter in the desk to Biden

Does anyone believe Biden's description of the letter, where he said it was generous in it's tone? What does everyone think it was like?

I suspect it was a decent letter. Not sure if Trump's staff didn't write it though. It was typed. Does Trumpy even know how to type except tweets?

I believe Trump was too angry to write it.

I read Melanie staffed out the goodbye letters to the entire WH household staff. Just signed them.
Yeah... you Be Best girl.

I know this is totally wrong, but whenever Melania talks about "Be Best", I can't help but think about Zoolander's "Center for Kids who Can't Read Good or do Other Stuff Good."

I'm sure everyone agrees that it was the best letter ever written by a defrauded, outgoing president. And that it was totally appropriate too.

If Trump actually wrote the letter in question, then one can be sure that it had some typographical errors in it and that the letter reads like one of his stupid Tweets.

From Trump? Not a chance.

Something written by the staff would be my bet.

If Melania didn't write her letter, there's no way Trump wrote his, so yeah, I can believe it was decent / generous. Do I believe it was from Trump / reflected his thoughts? Not a chance.

I was going to write a joke about the letter being written in crayon, but I can't be bothered, they haven't aged well. I think it was the attempted coup that did it. He's always been a horrible person, but after the January 6th coup attempt...

I heard Biden say that the letter was 'generous'. That could simply mean that it was written on a large piece of paper.

I saw Melania's departure speech in which see said how wonderful America was when an illegal nude "model" immigrant from a communist country could rise to the height of FLOTUS"

No. Sorry that was the other Universe. Never mind.

My own weird take on it. I actually bet that the letter was Trump actually trying to be gracious, which means it was Trump trying to sound like what he thinks a gracious person sounds like, which makes me want to know what it says more than if I just suspected it was directly mean spirited.

I think Biden knows that the less Trump's name is said the better. Saying the letter was anything but generous gives the story legs. Best just let it go.

There's not a goddamn chance in hell that Donny wrote it. Somebody else wrote it, forged his signature and put it there after Trump left.

Trump has it in him not to be a complete ****. During the 2016 election he sort of broke character and said something nice about Hillary - like she was a smart woman and a hell of a fighter, but, paraphrase.

There's no point at all in alienating Biden so his self-interest would dictate that he not quite grovel but give Joe some credit where it may be due. I doubt if he's emotionally equipped to say, "You won fair and square," but he could say something about how Biden fought the race with some class. I think he knows what class is.

I am intrigued over how she staffed then out. Did 2 or 3 people write all of them or was it more of a Secret Santa thing where each staffer had to write a letter to a randomly-selected staffer?

Given the tone in the WH since Jan 6, I’ll offer even money that she staffed out the signatures, too.

Not defrauded, defrauding. (or even defrocked)

ETA
While checking the definition, I came across this notation

Defraud stresses depriving one of his or her rights and usually connotes deliberate perversion of the truth.
Swindle implies large-scale cheating by misrepresentation or abuse of confidence.

Donny gets a twofer.

Trump part with money? The man is a living Scrooge McDuck.

There's no point at all in alienating Biden so his self-interest would dictate that he not quite grovel but give Joe some credit where it may be due. I doubt if he's emotionally equipped to say, "You won fair and square," but he could say something about how Biden fought the race with some class. I think he knows what class is.
Of course he does, that's why he knew that the attempted coup looked so low class.
