The White House comments line is still down. This should not be much of a shock. I doubt Trump is that receptive to allowing any sort of entrance in to the White House, albeit through a phone line. Bernie Sanders’ digital team has figured a brilliant method to get through to Trump.
WhiteHouseInc.org was created with the intent of getting Trump to untangle himself from his businesses. That failed. Now they are trying to find some use for it. Bernie Sanders’ digital presidential campaign, Revolution Messaging, is devising a brilliant method to allow callers unable to get in touch with the White House a far more practical approach.
Let’s say you have been calling the White House for the past couple weeks only to get a busy signal. Go to WhiteHouseInc.org and fill out a form. That is all you do. Eventually, you will get a call that connects you to one of Trump’s random properties. The property could be anywhere in the world.
The site suggests that when you are talking to this Trump employee
“tell management that until Trump steps away from his businesses for real, their property is no different from the Oval Office and you want to talk about the issues that matter most.”
This brilliant method to antagonize The Donald is aimed at his refusing to separate his businesses from the presidency. Until then, Bernie’s team figures that the presidency and his business are one in the same. Hence, everyone of Trump’s businesses is actually a mini-White House.
One little known tradition of our great democracy was the ability for anyone to pick up the phone and speak your mind to a live person at the White House. In Trump’s defense, if he continued this beloved democratic tradition, I doubt he could get enough operators to manage the tremendous amount of phone calls.
WhiteHouseInc.org provides an articulated dialogue on its website, for callers willing to take the plunge and call one of Trump’s properties.
“You may be asked to make a reservation or a tee-time, but tell management that until Trump steps away from his businesses for real, their property is no different from the Oval Office and you want to talk about the issues that matter most.”
