Freefalling Trump Campaign Reduced To Threatening Donors

via DailyKos

It's awfully flattering to know that during these turbulent times (a deadly pandemic, an economic recession, more than 20 million people unemployed, Russia paying bounties to kill American soldiers, Supreme Court rulings giving prosecutors access to Trump's financial records, etc), the President of the United States is taking time away from his golf game, tweeting, and Fox News watching, to look for my name on his list of donors.


Check out these quotes!

ERIC TRUMP: How do you want to be remembered? As a Patriot who fought to Keep America Great? Or as an un-American Liberal who stood idly by as Radical Democrats ripped our Nation apart? Team Trump just informed me that you haven’t accepted my father’s offer to join the Trump 100 Club, and I have to admit, I’m pretty disappointed.

MEET PRESIDENT TRUMP: Is everything OK? President Trump asked us if you were available to meet him at an upcoming event but we told him we hadn’t heard from you yet.

DONALD TRUMP JR: Should I tell my father that you aren’t interested? He asked me to review the most recent list of Patriots who have entered to win a trip to meet him at an upcoming event, and I noticed that you STILL haven’t entered.

It’s astounding that there are suckers who’ll fall for that crap, but... that’s how we got into this mess.

Oceans rise
Empires fall
We have seen each other through it all
And when push comes to shove
I will send a fully armed battalion
To remind you of my love

and I’ve been getting Trump spam emails ever since. They scream desperation and pander to the monumentally ignorant that think Trump is personally reviewing donations.


The most recent is below:

“S**,

I hate to be the one to tell you, but according to our records, your Trump 100 Club offer has been RESCINDED.


TRUMP 100 CLUB
SUPPORTER:
ACCOUNT NUMBER: 128896 - 2020
CONTRIBUTION STATUS: $0
MEMBERSHIP OFFER: RESCINDED
CONTRIBUTE NOW >>

You’ve received multiple emails from Team Trump, including my father, inviting you to join this BRAND NEW, prestigious club, and you’ve ignored every single one of them.

President Trump knows that you’ve always been such a strong supporter in the past, so he agreed to let me REACTIVATE your offer for ONE MORE DAY.

You now have until 11:59 PM TONIGHT to accept your offer to join the Trump 100 Club. After that, you may not get another chance.”

Truly pathetic.

I didn't want the Asshole's msgs, so I would text back "fuck you" or "go to hell" but would still get the text msgs. I found out all you have to do is reply "STOP" and they are required to take you off the list. I had no idea.

But they stopped for me when I replied "STOP" although I had to do it several times because I think I was on several lists.

Last election, Trump said he was rich and did not need donations.

Now they beg and threaten?

he sounds like his brother Oral, who threatened that he would be called home if his donors didn't come up with some coin.
