One sure-fire way to get on my bad side is to start carpet bombing me with endless emails begging me for money.
Sweet merciful Zeus, I hate that.
Since last Thursday, Donald Trump’s “Save America” PAC has been sending me a barrage of fundraising emails. Ten, fifteen, twenty a day. I feel like Dresden during World War Two.
What did I ever do to deserve this carpet bombing?
At this point, I’m regretting my $25 donation to Trump’s reelection campaign. If I ever make another online donation to a political campaign, I’m going to create a gmail account especially for the donation. Then after the election, I’m deleting the gmail account so if the politician decides to A) sell my email address to someone else or B) launch a email carpet bombing campaign from his own PAC, the barrage of emails will go nowhere.
Honestly, this is one of the most annoying, irritating things in the world. The text messages before last year’s election are still number one on the Annoying Meter. But this carpeting bombing is definitely a close runner-up.
I blocked the sender, so now these stupid emails automatically get sent to my trash folder. Then once a day, I open the trash folder, see the twenty or so emails, then empty the trash.
You’re not winning a fan here, Donald. In fact, you’re succeeding in pissing off someone who supported you.
Do I look like some dope who sees one of these emails and says, “Oh my gosh! Kimberly Guilfoyle is personally emailing me! Where do I send the check?!”
I never understood the logic behind pissing off the people who financially supported you in the past by inundating them with wave after wave of emails. On its face it seems wildly counterproductive.
Thanks to the endless carpet bombing, this Trump PAC won’t get a single dime from me. So good job, guys!
I admit, the carpet bombing especially pissed me off because around the same time it started, Trump released a statement saying if election fraud from 2020 isn’t fixed, Republicans won’t vote in 2022 or 2024.
Are you freaking kidding me?!
So, let me see if I have this straight.
Trump is flooding the zone with emails asking me to donate to a PAC he set up ostensibly to help elect Republicans in the Midterms. And at the same time he’s raising money for that PAC, he puts out a “fix this or else” threat saying Republicans won’t vote in the Midterms?
Spoiler Alert: I’m voting in the Midterms because I’m not stupid enough to think the solution to Democrats rigging an election is to stay home and make it easier for Democrats to rig an election.
Jesse Kelly’s response to Trump’s boneheaded statement was perfect:
1. Election fraud is a BIG deal and Democrats do it every chance they get and have for a long time and we better stop them.
2. The most popular Republican in America telling his supporters that their vote doesn’t matter is the dumbest, most suicidal thing I’ve ever seen.
Donald Trump is so often his own worst enemy.
I’m reading Mollie Hemingway’s new book Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech and the Democrats Seized Our Elections. It is excellently written, thoroughly researched and unbelievably infuriating.
The coordinated effort to oust Trump, which even Time Magazine boasted about several months ago, is carefully outlined in Rigged. And once you see it, you can’t un-see it. As John Daniel Davidson put it in the headline of his review of Rigged, the 2020 Election wasn’t stolen, it was vandalized.
Man, that is such a perfect way to put it.
I get it. I do. Trump is BIG MAD that he lost an election that, had the media, the Democrats and Big Tech not colluded together to rig, he would have won in a blow-out.
But Jesse is right. It’s suicidal to tell Americans their vote doesn’t matter.
It’s dispiriting, discouraging and counterproductive.
In my October 21, 2016 column “Vote,” I wrote:
The goal of the Enslaved Press and opinion polling is to create an air of inevitability around Hillary Clinton. Their hope is to dispirit you – to leave you feeling as if your vote will make no difference.
They want you to give up and stay home in November. Because that’s the only way Hillary Clinton can win.
It really infuriates me to see a statement from Donald Trump that, like the media, dispirits voters and leaves them feeling as if their vote won’t make a difference.
When morons like that crank Lin Wood were telling Georgia voters to skip the Senate run-off elections, I said it would be a tremendously bad idea.
Boycotting the Georgia run-off will not teach them a lesson. It won’t put the fear of God into Georgia’s Republican-led government.
It will, however, hand the Senate to the Democrats and punish the entire nation.
It infuriates me that Donald Trump is even suggesting Republicans sit out the Midterms.
With all the absolute shit that is going on right now — from the border to inflation to skyrocketing prices to the targeting of Biden’s political enemies — we should be firing people up, not dispiriting them.
We should be energizing voters, not pissing all over them.
Even if he wasn’t carpet bombing me with fundraising emails, that statement alone would be reason enough not to donate to Trump’s “Save America” PAC.
You don’t “Save America” by telling Republican voters to stay home and give up.
