Tuesday was Kamala Harris’ birthday.
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 Tuesday, while Joe Biden sent 5.
The final Presidential debate is on Thursday, but only Trump is talking about it. He is making sure to stress how RIGGED the previous debates were, and how unfair it was that they canceled the debate after he refused to participate. He is now furious that his microphone will be muted during the 2 minutes of uninterrupted time that Biden gets to answer questions.
The man really doesn’t understand how actions have consequences, does he?
Trump is pushing his Presidential Debate Members hard: donate and you’ll get your name displayed on the website’s livestream of the debate. However, the first time he offered this, he called it the President’s Club.
In addition, he is raffling off 50 signed gold stars from the stage he gave his convention speech on. For a small donation, you too might get a signed gold piece of cardboard.
Biden, on the other hand, is worried about keeping up with Trump’s PACs pouring money in. He has to keep talking about Trump’s PACs, because the recent FEC filing of their September income showed that Trump pulled in $200 million less than Biden in the month of September, and he only has about a third of the cash on hand that Biden does. Unlike Biden’s campaign, Trump’s campaign is also over a million dollars in debt.
Nothing like running things like a business, right?
