Dear Abby Phillip, Yamiche Alcindor and April Ryan,
Thank you for your commitment to honest reporting on the White House. In spite of the verbal abuse and attempts to silence you, you persisted and asked the Trump administration tough questions to hold them accountable.
You confronted Trump on the Mueller investigation, voter suppression in the midterm elections, and challenged his divisive rhetoric and close ties to white nationalism.
We admire your grit in the face of dismissive and demeaning language, and we appreciate your dedication to keeping the American public informed.
Before he became a US Senator, a young fellow by the name of JFK had written a book titled PROFILES IN COURAGE that I wish I could send a copy autographed by him to each of you to keep on your night table to REMIND each of you how much we who care POSITIVELY about what YOU EACH WRITE ABOUT, along with an autographed copy of his later book WE ARE A NATION OF IMMIGRANTS he was commissioned to write to by the International Organization called the Anti-Defamation League that you each could have autographed when you sent it, with your handwritten suggestions to certain members of Trump The Chump’s [TTC’s] close family members for them to read through as they keep their respective copies on their night tables. PLEASE REMEMBER MARK TWAIN’s advice I wish I had been alive when he was in his prime to ask him to personally address a handwritten piece of the Crane Paper Company’s heavy 32 pound white paper, in a 32 pound white bond envelope, that said in his handwriting his famous quote for each of you: “KEEP SMILING, while you write what you write as a journalist covering TTC, that way, noooo one will know what you’re each up to, and EACH OF YOU will comfort many of us while you astonish others by keeping up a steady stream of words of wit and wisdom.” Thanks again for what Yoda says you “Do!” 🙂
