Comrade Stupid: Making the Grade?

Oh, how I love this story: Retired English teacher corrects a White House letter and sends it back.

“The notes were sprawled across a letter bearing President Donald Trump’s signature.

“In the top left corner: “Have y’all tried grammar style check?”

“At the top right: “Federal is capitalized only when used as part of a proper noun.”

“And toward the bottom: “OMG this is WRONG!”

“The letter, dated May 3 and printed on White House stationery, was addressed to Yvonne Mason, 61, a former high school English teacher who retired in 2017 but hadn’t quite left “grading-paper mode,” she said Sunday.

“So when she received the letter in the mail, she pulled out her go-to purple pen and started making corrections. Then she snapped a picture, posted the letter on Facebook and mailed it back to the White House.”

I can only imagine Comrade Stupid’s face when he got the reply (I know he didn’t get it, but I can imagine it right?) and calling in Betsy DeVos. “Betsy, did you know that there are retired teachers working for free?”

Of course, he’s more likely to call in the IRS and have Mason audited.

    She should also have added, “In short, you did everything except address the actual problem. Not good!”

    The IRS doesn’t have time to audit Ms. Mason. They’re busy auditing Trump’s tax returns, which, as we all know, is the reason he hasn’t released them.

    Gah! That could have been my grade eight teacher, Mrs. Durst. Without her, my writing would be almost illiterate as well as damn near illegible.
