You don’t have to be a political pollster to know that Trump is going to lose the election in November. Even his loyal base is growing tired of his incompetence. So what do you do if you’re on team Trump and you know that you are about to lose your job in a few months? You blitz the people who can least afford it with requests for money. Money that Trump and his cronies have found creative ways of funneling directly into their pockets.
Brad Parscale may have lost his position as campaign manager, but he’s still pulling the strings in the digital marketing landscape. Just this past July Trump pulled in 165 million dollars in campaign contributions. They have been bombarding donor’s with around the clock requests for money. They do this through a steady stream of text messages and emails.
I know this because I am a recipient of this bombardment. How did I get to be so lucky? Trump, with his narcissistic impulses, is constantly sending out nonsensical polls. These polls most often allow the recipient to add comments to their responses. That’s where the fun is. I get to say over and over that Trump is an idiot directly to the people working for him. I usually add comments about how they’re going down with the ship. Every poll ends with a submit button that then takes you to a screen asking for a donation.
Yesterday I received a text message offering me a signed copy of Sean Hannity’s new book. So much for fair and balanced. I haven’t given Trump a penny, yet I am one of his top supporters, if you are to believe the emails I receive on a daily basis.
Besides hawking Hannity’s book, the contents of the text messages and emails are truly bizarre. Trump aced his cognitive test, so why won’t Biden take it? Take a short poll now! Here are a few other crazy themes: Sleepy Joe is locked in his basement afraid to face the press; a request to become a Trump Team Leader; get a signed MAGA hat, a chance to get on Trump’s Donor Hall of Fame.
Even Brad Parscale knows that he might be going a little overboard with his requests for money, so he enlists the help of other Trump cult figures to make requests on Trump’s behalf: Eric Trump, Trump Jr., Lara Trump, Newt Gingrich, Bill Stepien, Mike Pence, America First Action, Kimberly Guilfoyle, and last but not least the official Trump campaign store.
So how is this going to end? I can guarantee you that once Trump is out of office the requests for money will not stop. The next money request theme will be helping Trump stay out of prison.
