President Donald Trump is not too pleased with a lot of the mail that is showing up at the White House this week.
As part of the Ides of Trump campaign, thousands of people are sending postcards to the president to share messages of concern, frustration and a little bit of mockery, Huffington Post reported.
“This is about protesting with humor and sarcasm, which are things which I don’t think [Trump] can handle very well and get under his skin.”
Sullivan, a television writer and producer based in Santa Monica, California, came up with the idea with his friend Zack Kushner when they were talking about witty Trump protest signs they had seen at the women’s marches in January.
“We’re both writers, so we thought it was particularly inspiring, and [Kushner] said, ‘I wish we could mail them to Trump,’” Sullivan said. “It came up like, oh, well you could turn them into postcards.”
“Sending postcards is a cheap and easy way for people to make their voices heard,” he said.
The campaign is just one of the ways anti-Trump Americans have voiced their displeasure in the last few months. November’s election sparked a wave of activism among Democrats, who are holding national protests, crowding their representatives’ town halls and in some cases deciding to run for public office themselves.
While many of the postcards poke fun at Trump, others are more serious, urging him to consider the damage his policies could cause.
While it seems doubtful that Trump himself will spend time reading thousands of critical postcards, Sullivan hopes they still make a point.
“The message we’d want him to understand is, ‘Not on our watch,’” he said. “We are watching, we’re not going away and we’re not getting tired.”
