A retired English teacher wrote a letter to the White House. In response, she received a letter signed by President Donald Trump Nevertheless, according to Yvonne Mason the content of the White House response would not have received very good grades in her Classroom and if given by a high school student, it would hardly pass.
"If it had been written in middle school, I would give it C or C-plus," Mason told Greenville News about the White House letter, which was full of dismissals, faulty capitalization and cluttered Prose was.
She added, "If it had been written in high school, I would give it D."
Mason knows that the letter was probably written by a co-worker, not by Trump himself. Nevertheless, she said that It is disappointing to see that such bad prose comes from the White House.
"If you get letters from the highest level of government, you expect them to be at least mechanically correct," Mason said. She also decided to do something about it by using a marker and a pen to deliver the letter correct and return it to the sender at 1
However, she stopped him with an actual note just before sending.
A photo of the letter with comments like "OMG that's wrong!" Has been widely used in social media.
