Leonard Pitts: Trump wants to meet me! But first he wants a donation. The naked grift continues

So it turns out Iím a friend of Donald Trumpís. In fact, Iím one of his top supporters. Also, my name is Joe.

If this surprises you, imagine how I feel.

Those revelations come by way of Trump himself in emails that have deluged my inbox for months. From them, I learn that when Trump scans a list of his donors and doesnít see my name, heís hurt and surprised, given that Iíve always been so generous in the past.

He implores me to keep on giving. And just to sweeten the offer, he has a personally signed a MAGA hat for me. Or heís holding an ďOfficial Trump CardĒ for me! Or a ďLetís Go Brandon!Ē T-shirt thatís sure to ďtrigger the libs!Ē Or some Trump wrapping paper! Or an autographed baseball! And he wants to meet me! And if I act fast, heíll put me on the Trump Honor Roll!

It never stops. A dozen or more, every day. I am in mailing-list hell. Should it need saying: Iíve never given Donald Trump a dime. In fact, I havenít contributed to a political campaign since 1994. My son ran for sixth-grade president that year, and I sprang for markers and construction paper. He won on a platform of more field trips, a longer lunch period and better snack machines.

1. I get the same crap. Last one was the autographed baseball. But...

it was his autograph. Always tempted to send him 2 cents, but somehow never do.

Best one was when he promised "This is my last email."
