Dear President Bannon,

I was really upset to learn that you get a lot of hate mail. I just want you to know I’m a really big fan of your work. A League of Their Own was one of my favorite movies of all time, and to be honest, I never felt comfortable with my sexual identity until seeing the confidence in your character. I can’t tell you how much that meant to me.

I also remember exactly where I was when I first heard you would be joining The View. It was already one of my favorite shows, and the feistiness and passion you brought to the set was beautiful. I especially loved how rosy your cheeks would get, and I have a hard time believing that anyone who watched the show could hate you.

So I have to ask, why do they hate you? It’s not like you’re secretly evil or anything. Right? RIGHT?!

How could someone who played Betty Rubble in The Flintstones be evil? I mean, you won a Kids’ Choice Award from Nickelodeon for god’s sake. And can anyone really forget all your advocacy for gun control and gay rights?

I guess what I’m saying, President Bannon, is that I hope you are able to ignore all the people out there who dislike you. We both know you’re a good person on the inside and so many of us admire how brave you are in standing up to our president.

Hope to see you on Saturday Night Live soon!

Your number one fan,
Simran Jeet Singh
