Little Girl's Blunt Letter To Trump Sums Up Our Feelings Better Than We Could

Shakespeare once wrote, “Brevity is the soul of wit,” and a little girl named Alice seems to have mastered that concept (probably better than most adults, in fact).

On March 5, comedian Patton Oswalt, Alice's father, shared an image of his daughter holding a postcard she wrote to President Donald Trump.

The postcard has a simple, yet profound message for the president: “Calm down.”

This might be the most accurate and relevant use of emojis in history.

Well played, Alice.


Someone accused Oswalt of brainwashing his daughter, but the comedian said she made the postcard while playing with friends.

It is possible for children to have ideas of their own, after all — even on complex matters like politics.

Not to mention, Trump is arguably the most childish president in modern US history (and perhaps ever), so it makes a lot of sense that children would be able to understand and critique his antics.


For the most part, people think Alice is 100 percent correct and should probably run for president one day.

One person responded by sharing a letter his child wrote to Trump, which referred to the president as a “dumpster.”


“We are all Alice” couldn't be more accurate. #ImWithAlice

Kids are a lot more intelligent and aware than we often give them credit for.

Alice is the future, and that's very reassuring.

Perhaps Alice was responding to the fact Trump repeatedly tweets major and controversial claims without any evidence to support his assertions whatsoever.

While it would be wrong to put word's in Alice's mouth, because she can clearly speak for herself, it seems she thinks the president needs to chill out and stop sending the country into hysterics every single time he hops on Twitter or has a press conference.

Thanks for keeping it real, Alice. You rock.
