Donald Trump’s emails leave me feeling physically ill. One more week to go.
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 15 emails on Monday, while Joe Biden sent 6.
While Biden focused on raising money, Trump focused on raising money by boasting about his super fantabulous Supreme Court pick. He crowed about how much the Left hates her and sent one particularly nasty subject line:
America 3 | Democrats 0
Trump does not see Democrats as Americans. This is literally not a surprise to anyone, but it is always exceptionally disgusting when he doesn’t even try to hide it.
But why would Trump bother to hide it in his subject line when his emails are full of hatred, vitriol, and dancing matched-donation checks.
Trump’s emails on Monday have been heavily focused on how important it is to get Barrett appointed so the Democrats don’t have the chance to pack the courts.
They fail to realize that it is precisely because of Barrett’s rushed confirmation and shoddy record that the Democrats have moved reforming the Supreme Court front and center.
And let’s face it: if the Republicans thought they were going to hold the White House and the Senate this election, would they really be rushing her through? They’re terrified, and they’re trying to pillage as much as they can from the country before they lose power.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t help us in the short-term.
Vote like your life depends on it. And if you’re lucky enough that your life and situation doesn’t depend on it… vote for someone else’s who does.
