Donald Trump is back to being loud, and Joe Biden has dropped to his pre-convention numbers.
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 out 9 emails on the first of the month, while Joe Biden sent 3.
While both Biden and Trump were still mainly focused on fundraising, Trump was initiating the first debate contests–donate anything, get a chance to join Trump at the debates.
After all, Biden doesn’t want to debate, Trump claims, and this will be Trump’s chance to crush him.
Trump also reminded me that it is crucial I get my news directly from HIM and not from the news, and that’s why he needs me to sign up for his Trump Texts (which are only available to his most dedicated members), and he also reminded me that he noticed I didn’t donate before the last deadline.
That’s okay, though. He’ll activate a 700% match for me because he knows I’ll donate within the next hour.
(he sent that email twice, multiple hours apart.)
While Trump was busy shitting all over Biden and accusing me of not being loyal enough, Biden was extraordinarily grateful for how I helped make August such a great success. He thanked me for giving Kamala Harris such a warm welcome to the team and helping the Democratic party put on such an incredible convention. He did point out that my state, Michigan, was a battleground state, so if I could donate to help win it for Biden, that would be wonderful, and he also asked for my opinions going into September so the campaign knows what to focus on.
Trump also wanted my opinion, on what I thought about Biden not condemning Antifa.
(Antifa are anti-fascists. If you are anti-antifa, does that make you just plain fascist?)
Trump also informed me that the liberal mob is going to come for me on the streets for having a differing view point.
For the record: communities are NOT being burnt to the ground. The protesters are NOT thugs. However, people are being attacked in the streets for simply not agreeing with their attackers.
What Trump isn’t saying is that the attackers are his supporters.
He’s also not condemning them. Both sides, after all. Very fine people. Need to figure out WHY the white teenager with the rifle murdered people who were trying to stop him from murdering people. But the Black guy checking on his kids was absolutely guilty of whatever it was that deserved multiple gunshots to the back.
This, for the record, is Trump’s America. We haven’t seen what Biden’s America looks like.
