Donald Trump must have been having a rough weekend, because he sent 3 emails praising himself.
For all new readers: Welcome! I am currently on the mailing lists of Joe Biden and Donald Trump, though I have previously been on the mailing lists of 28 Democratic candidates! This blog breaks down recent emails with charts and excerpts. If you already know all of this, feel free to skip to the next chart!
It took some time for the Trump emails to kick in, so I started officially tracking his list on July 7. I have been tracking Biden’s for longer, but I will start comparing them as of July 7. All of these emails are going to a new email, and I have not donated, filled out surveys, signed petitions, or otherwise interacted with either candidate’s emails.
The rules I try to follow for the various categories are laid out in The Framework.
Donald Trump sent a total of 15 emails over the weekend, while Joe Biden sent 7.
While Trump has been pushing hard for me to donate or buy his merch at “discounted” prices, Biden is coming back with offers of ways I can help the campaign by volunteering, filling out surveys, or signing petitions.
Biden has been getting excited about the convention and his VP pick, though he’s worried about the state of the post office and very solemn over just how much of a mess Trump is: did you see the Axios interview? It was a mess.
Trump, on the other hand, continues to oscillate between YOU KEEP MY CAMPAIGN ALIVE and WHY AREN’T YOU KEEPING MY CAMPAIGN ALIVE?
In one of Trump’s emails, he boasted about his new executive orders which are lazy and half-assed at best and downright illegal at worst, but really, he was more interested in getting me into his various clubs. I received offers for the Donor Hall of Fame, the Platinum Membership (this being the FIRST TIME it’s ever been offered to online supporters), the Trump Executive Membership (comes with a certificate, membership on sale for just $35), and been told that my Sustaining Membership has expired (and NOT renewing is just not an option).
I also received some unusual emails from the Trump campaign talking about how awesome Trump is.
You’d think this would happen more frequently, but no, it usually doesn’t. His emails usually focus on how much I’m a Patriot and how much he’s disappointed that I’m not on whatever list he’s looking at.
Over the weekend, Trump’s decisive executive actions were touted as being incredible saviors for the American people (they’re not), and one ass-kissing man from Minnesota, Mike Lindell, Chairmain of the Minnesota Trump Campaign (not cool enough to get a headshot in his signature) sent me an email that was definitely aimed at making Trump feel better.
But hey. I’m also pretty cool.
Should we mention how the colors on this picture are also super weird? I don’t know who’s making these photos of Trump, but take their contrast sliders away from them.
