Much ado was made over the fact that, in the wake of racially charged events in Charlottesville, a number of presidential advisers resigned from their respective councils.

The committee even used the letter to attempt one last creative swipe at the president, using the first letter of each paragraph to spell out “RESIST”:
Love the RESIST (first letter of each Paragraph ✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼)

But what Penn left out of both the letter and his comments is the fact that the 17-member committee had been created by President Barack Obama and had not yet even met with Trump.
