The problem? The piece was actually a total parody that was completely dragging Trump.


Reacting to the fact that the White House decided to include this in its daily newsletter, a lot of people concluded that no one from the Trump administration actually read the piece.

This was in today's email from the White House. So clearly, literally no one read the linked piece by @petridishes,…

Maybe they just read the headline and were happy with that?

This White House clearly only reads the headlines of articles.

@petridishes somebody looked at this and thought "a positive headline from WaPo, this seems fine and not suspicious at all"

But then she became sad that at least one person hadn't read her piece.

The Post piece was eventually removed from the newsletter, presumably because someone finally read it.
