Got an email this morning from an old friend I never knew I had: Donald Trump Jr.
This struck me as odd, considering the withering criticism I've heaped on his old man over the past few years. I've read that Don Jr. and "The Donald" have never been close, but it surprised me that he would want anything to do with a "lying, liberal, socialist, fake news enemy of the people" like me.
Yet here was an email with the subject line: "Congratulations"
I was going through our donor files and YOU were identified as one of my father’s TOP supporters.
Whenever we’ve needed you to help us protect my father’s America First agenda, you never failed to step up.
Having enough cash on hand is essential to SAVING AMERICA from Joe Biden and his liberal cronies, which is why I’ve convinced my father to EXTEND your PERSONAL 500%-IMPACT OFFER FOR 1 MORE HOUR.
This offer is only valid for 1 HOUR, Friend. After that, it could permanently expire.
Please contribute ANY AMOUNT in the NEXT HOUR to increase your impact by 500%. >>
I appreciate Don. Jr.'s offer of Friendship, but I can't imagine what gave him the impression I'm one of his father's TOP supporters. I'm not even one of his BOTTOM supporters. Also, I've never made a political donation in my life. If I did, it would not be to a sore loser who tried to overturn the results of a free and fair election and is still feeding a creeping coup against our constitutional republic.
Although we're Friends, I have to say Don Jr.'s final pitch was a touch too desperate and patronizing for my taste.
My father is really counting on your support right now, Friend.
I’m calling him later to go over who contributed to this email. I want to tell him YOU were the FIRST patriot. HURRY!
Sorry Don Jr., I just don't feel comfortable funding sedition. If we can't be Friends anymore, I understand.
