Letter to the White House: Let Him Speak Again!

Dear Occupant:

You live there in the White House, so you’re the occupant, for now. As such, the American people have a right to know what’s going on behind your closed doors, and your press secretary should not hide from the press.

I understand how difficult it may be for him to answer questions. You don’t want him to tell the truth about anything, and he always looks stupid trying to get your talking points across. Yet, even so, our media representatives should have the right to question him. If he lies, the press can point out the lies.

We would like to hear him explain why you think it’s a good thing that 23 million Americans lose their health insurance.

We would like to hear him explain how you’re now under investigation, which you apparently means that you feel you’re guilty of something.

We would like to hear him explain how you have failed to appoint sufficient senior staff to run the government, mainly because no one with an ounce of integrity would work for you.

Put Sean Spicer back out there in the press room, sir occupant of the White House.

Very truly yours,

Bruce J. Berger
