Trump must really be feeling sad because Sarah Huckabee Sanders tried to cheer him up with today’s press briefing by reading a totally real and not fake letter from a real 9-year-old boy who is completely and totally real and definitely not fake.
“My name is Dylan Harbin, but everybody calls me ‘Pickle’,” the letter begins.
“You’re my favorit president,” the letter reads. “I like you so much that I had a birfday about you. My cake was the shap of your hat.”
“I dont now why people don’t like you,” Dylan the Totally Real Boy tells Trump. “You seme nice can we be friends?” Sanders assured “Pickle” that Trump will absolutely be his bestest friend in the whole wide world.
To prove “Dylan” is totally and completely real, Sanders even tweeted the completely legitimate letter that was not written by a staffer and repurposed as a letter from a child because of the spelling.
Dylan aka Pickle thank you for your letter and hope to meet you soon! pic.twitter.com/XZlJARZ9cs

People had, um, questions and concerns with exactly how real Dylan, who apparently managed to mail a letter without ever folding it, happens to be:
Just a few questions. U said his last name outloud. Why the white out? Is he real? Why wasn’t this letter ever folded? Can u sleep at night?

Is it true that Dylan is John Barron’s son? And why didn’t you answer his question on how much money Donald has? Clearly wants tax returns.

That’s a nice letter. My class of diverse kids are scared of the President. Some say they’re afraid because they’re brown.

Did Trump write this? It looks like his handwriting.

@realDonaldTrump Did John Miller write that letter?

@flashgo21 “Catch Me If You Can” has taught me that this letter is a fake. If it’s real…where’s the crease?

I mean there’s just no way trump didn’t write this with his non dominant hand, right?

Was the letter hand delivered??? There are no creases in the paper. It’s prolly is as untrue as we very wordddpoken from that podium

It’s as we feared. Donald Trump *is* Pickle. The handwriting gives it away.

Intriguing. Was this mailed neatly in a large manila envelope? It doesn’t appear that it was ever folded.
You know. Like a child would do.

What’s most hilarious is that Sarah the Press Secretary could barely read this with a straight face. Watch it below:
