Trump Dragged For 'Laughably Desperate' Campaign Email Calling Kamala Harris 'Horrible'

President Donald Trump's latest campaign message has people scratching their heads and laughing in disbelief at what many saw as a "laughably desperate" email to supporters.

The email attacked California Senator Kamala Harris in the wake of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden selecting her as his running mate earlier this week.

Sounding more like a fifth-grade burn book than the words of the President of the United States, the bizarre email describes Kamala Harris in the most petulant way imaginable.

"Kamala Harris is the meanest, most horrible, most disrespectful, MOST LIBERAL of anyone in the U.S. Senate, and I cannot believe that Joe Biden would pick her as his running mate."

The subject line of the email was just as ridiculous.

"Kamala is HORRIBLE."

The email contained no mention of policies, voting records, or background information from her previous career as Attorney General of California and a prosecutor. Just that she's "mean" and "horrible."

The email goes on to make several baseless and counterfactual claims about Joe Biden's and Kamala Harris's platform and policy proposals.

"These two corrupt and career politicians have made it clear they want to protect sanctuary cities, protect criminals, take away your Second Amendment rights, and DESTROY America.

Many feel the email makes Trump and his campaign sound desperate, petulant, and most importantly, terrified of Kamala Harris.

The email comes on the heels of several ham-fisted attempts by Trump Administration officials and surrogates to denigrate Harris in the most ineffectual ways possible, from accusing her of supporting drug laws that Trump himself supports, to comparing her to Marge Simpson, to calling her race and ethnicity into question (Harris is half-Black, half-Indian) because she has a slave-owning ancestor.

On Twitter, eyerolls and laughs at Trump's expense abounded from people astonished by the bizarre wording of the email.










It wasn't the only bizarre email the Trump campaign sent out either. Later in the day, they sent another one... supposedly from Kamala Harris herself.


It's going to be a long few months.
