Newly minted White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders decided to remind the press corp exactly why all of us do what we do.
During Wednesday’s press briefing, Sanders read a letter sent to the President by a nine-year-old boy. The single letter demonstrates more respect for the President than he has ever received from the press in total.
We sometimes forget in the middle of all our bickering and complaining about the other side, that we’re all supposed to be working for the greater good of this country. The greater good isn’t just for our own sake, it’s also for the sake of those who come after us. One of those little people reached out to the President, and Sanders decided to share that with all of us.
Via The Blaze:
Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Wednesday read a moving letter from a 9-year-old boy named Dylan — who prefers to go by “Pickle” — praising the president and asking him questions about his life and the White House.
Sanders, kicking off her first briefing as the White House Press Secretary, noted that the Trump administration was going to begin doing things differently for the press.
“We’re going to start the White House briefing every once in a while with a letter or an e-mail that we may receive,” she began, “[from] some of the forgotten men, women, and children.”
See Dylan’s letter below (transcribed with all the original spelling errors) and continue reading for more story.
Dear President Trump,
My name is Dylan (Last name Withheld) but everybody calls me pickle. I’m 9 years old and you are my favorite President. I like you so much I had a birthday about you. My cake was the shape of your hat.
How old are you? How big is the Whte House? How much money do you have? I don’t know why people don’t like you. You seem nice can we be friends? My picher is in here so if you see me you can say hi.
Sanders not only read the letter, she attempted to answer the boy’s questions, as best she could.

This is a great reminder of not only why we do what we do, but who we answer to. Our duty is to work for a better tomorrow, and if you’re a politician your bosses are all the American people. They are the ones who work hard at menial jobs and pay the salaries of the people who are making laws that in many cases, will never apply to them.
President Trump ran on a platform of making America great again, and he won so that must mean that Americans think we agree with him and probably like him for it. Dispelling the liberal lie that everybody hates President Trump is a tall order, but one that his new Press Secretary is doing a darn good job of so far.
