The Trump campaign got some of their emails out of order yesterday. If you’re going to ask if I saw Trump’s email trashing Kamala, you have to first SEND Trump’s email trashing Kamala.
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 11 emails on Thursday, while Joe Biden sent 6.
While Biden’s campaign was overflowing with praise for Kamala Harris’ performance, Trump’s campaign was much more keen to call her a phony and a rambling mess. Trump would send out emails insulting her, and then Pence would send out emails forwarding his email and saying “Trump is right, we can’t let her win.” Unfortunately, they forgot to send out the original “KAMALA IS A PHONY!” email before they began the Pence “did you see Trump’s emails?”
While Biden’s campaign has been focusing on getting out the vote and getting me to the polls, Trump’s campaign is… being Trump’s campaign. That includes focusing on what his opponent was doing.
Because nothing says you’re on top of things in 2020 like trying to resurrect a fake scandal from 2016.
