If you have a Trump Gold card or a Trump Platinum card, you’re now obsolete. It’s time to whip out your Trump Diamond card…
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 a massive 11 emails on Wednesday, while Joe Biden outdid himself with 5.
Their tones could not be more different. Biden was humbled and overwhelmed by the $364.5 million fundraising haul he pulled in in the month of August.
Trump did not mention how much he brought in, but he had an opinion on how Biden made his money.
Doesn’t the Radical Right ever get tired of being yelled at? Even when Trump isn’t yelling at them, he’s still yelling. Look at all those all-caps and bold words. Isn’t that just exhausting?
Why would anyone willingly subject themselves to that?
(Because they don’t understand ‘speak softly and carry a big stick.’)
While Trump continues to yammer on about his 800% match, his surrogates, Diamond and Silk, tell me that I totally need to donate to his 700% match offer, because those don’t come around very frequently…
(there’s been a 700% match offer 14 different days in August, many times multiple times a day, and a different 700% match offer for the last 7 days straight.)
But that’s okay, because Diamond and Silk love Trump because he’s HONEST, and that’s all we need to know about them.
But the real story of the night is that the platinum card must have stopped getting new members, because Trump had to open up another tier of membership cards: the Diamond card. As always, he started it in the exact same way: pawning off responsibility for making a decision.
Originally we were planning on releasing just one design, but when President Trump saw the cards on his desk, he said, “Why would you ask me? Let the American People decide – they ALWAYS know best!”Team Trump 2020
This is, by the way, also what he said about which picture of him was the best, and I believe several other campaign choices.
But, here you go: which card do YOU think is the best?
Just in case you were curious, here are the previous cards:
Oh, but wait, there was one more card…
So… I guess if you didn’t get the cut-price card, you can’t have the full set?
