A Script for Expressing Your Discontent to the White House
If you listened to this week’s special edition of Whatever Happened to Pizza at McDonald’s?, you know that I felt compelled to contact the White House to voice my discontent with our acting president Donald Trump’s failure to address the McDonald’s Pizza issue. Despite the fact that Mr. Trump is a well-known McDonald’s food enthusiast (and was even photographed enjoying a McDonald’s meal aboard Air Force One this week), he has gone nearly four years without even mentioning that McDonald’s used to serve pizza, much less doing anything to facilitate its return.
Well, enough is enough.
If you feel the same way I do about this issue and would like to voice your opinion to Mr. Trump himself, it is very simple. Any citizen with a working telephone or access to a working telephone may dial either the White House comment line or the White House switchboard. However, since I am aware many people are not as comfortable with impromptu public speaking as I am, I have provided the following script to aid in your efforts. Please feel free to modify it to best suit your voice, but be sure to retain the key piece of information: that you cannot support a president who will do nothing about the McDonald’s Pizza issue.
Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME HERE]. I am a(n) [INSERT OCCUPATION AND/OR FULL-TIME HOBBY HERE], but I am also a concerned citizen activist. I would like to let President Trump know that due to his inaction on the McDonald’s Pizza issue, I will not be supporting him in the upcoming election. Thank you.
