This is CNN.
Retired English teacher who marked up a letter she received from President Trump that was filled with grammar mistakes: “If I were grading for that… I just don’t see that I could give him over a D… I would probably give him some points for effort.” https://t.co/cVcPSrRRxQ pic.twitter.com/Si8JrI0S8c

Because you know, it’s TOTALLY news that some retired teacher went through and grammatically corrected a letter supposedly written by the president.
And people give US a hard time for covering silly stuff even though that’s our jam.
Instead of giving this nimrod a platform to bash POTUS, maybe you should take a harder look at her "corrections," or just read Reason's take: "An English Teacher's Incorrect Correction of a Trump Letter Illustrates His Critics' Reflexive Condescension" https://t.co/eW0uJKgBNW

By comparison, the form letter that Yvonne Mason received from Trump, which presumably was written by a staffer on his behalf, is a model of care. Yet Mason, a retired English teacher in Atlanta, thought the letter was so riddled with errors that she marked it up, posted a photo of it on Facebook, and sent the “corrected” version back to the White House. I know about this incident only because The New York Times thought it was worth a story, as part of a continuing series on what a huge doofus the president is.
Don’t get me wrong. The president is a huge doofus. But Mason’s markup of his letter does not reinforce that point. In fact, none of Mason’s corrections is correct, although there are at least two mistakes in the letter that she neglected to note.
And CNN interviewed her.
Talk about a banana.
TFW people think President Trump typed up this letter. ????

You know, I've done the same thing with letters sent by Obama and any number of Democrats yet for some reason it never made the news…. #FAKENEWS

If Obama made mistakes it was endearing or part of his charm.
You people need to get a life…
