Mom was a lifelong Republican. Voted for whoever the GOP presidential candidate was from the time she became a citizen in the mid-1950s until 2016. She ended up not casting a vote for President that year because she didn't like Hillary and thought Trump was an idiot (her word).

She had donated on occasion to the GOP national committee, so was on their mailing list for donation soliciations.

I set up forwarding of my Mom's mail back in 2018, when I sold her condo. Shortly after doing the USPS forwarding thing online, I started getting emails from Donald J Trump to my email address (the one I used to register the forwarding instructions). The only thing I can think of is that USPS shared my email address; I haven't a clue how else the GOP could have gotten it.

I thought I had managed to get off that mailing list because I hadn't gotten anything for a long time. But recently the barrage started...

A couple of days ago I got 15, count 'em 15, emails ON A SINGLE DAY asking for donations and hawking Trump wine glasses, MAGA t-shirts, and invitations to the TIC's rallies.

Amazing how they are bombarding people with this carp....I'll post a few in this thread for the laugh factor...

Subj: My father is PROUD to be ULTRA MAGA

WTG'S MOM ,

The Democrats called us ULTRA MAGA and an extreme political organization.

Given the insane policies being pushed and implemented by the radical Left these days, can anyone make a credible argument that the Democrat Party itself isn’t the greatest threat facing everyday Americans and their prosperity?

Subj: I told you I would DRAIN THE SWAMP

DRAIN THE SWAMP

WTG'S MOM ,

When I make a promise, I keep it.

I told you I would DRAIN THE SWAMP and purge Washington of woke bureaucrats, and that’s exactly what Schedule F accomplishes.

As your President, I implemented Schedule F so that Presidents could have the ability to FIRE federal employees who were BYPASSING democracy for their own benefit. These employees are doing a disservice to America and are the very Swamp creatures that we’re trying to get rid of.

I’m reaching out to you now with one very important request. I need YOU to bolster our Official Drain the Swamp Fund. The Democrats are working overtime to keep radicals like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and the SQUAD in power, and only YOU can stop them.

**Every single dollar raised today will go directly towards our efforts to DRAIN THE SWAMP.

Please contribute $45 or more IMMEDIATELY towards our Official DRAIN THE SWAMP Fund and stand with me. >>

1. Ugh, I'm sorry you have to deal with that WTG.

2. What is the etiquette on former presidents? Am I wrong in thinking that it's disingenuous to call him President Trump in those emails?

Subj: It’s up to us, WTG'S MOM.

WTG'S MOM,

President Trump will never stop fighting to Save America.

Our great Nation has come too far, and we accomplished too much under President Trump to throw it all away under Biden’s failed leadership.

WTG'S MOM, we both know there’s only one thing to do.

President Trump is calling on you to stand up and stand with him to…

Defend America.

President Trump selected only his best Patriots to join the American Defense Task Force, and you are one of them.

Please contribute any amount immediately and proudly stand with President Trump on the Official American Defense Task Force.

American Defenders - JOIN THEM >>>

CONTRIBUTE $250 >>

CONTRIBUTE $100 >>

CONTRIBUTE $50 >>

CONTRIBUTE $25 >>

CONTRIBUTE ANY AMOUNT >>

This is your chance to step up and accept. President Trump has requested to look over the updated American Defense Task Force roster first thing tomorrow.

Make sure he sees your name.

Please give $50 or more by 11:59 pm tonight to accept President Trump’s exclusive invitation to become an official member of his American Defense Task Force. >>

Thank you,

Team Trump

CONTRIBUTE NOW >>

Fully half of the trash in the hoarder house was junk mail. Half of that was from the TFG crime family and the other half was from TV preachers.

Normally I’d just throw it away but every piece of mail had been opened and sometimes there was cash in the envelope with the junk. I don’t know if she was hiding it or intended to mail it off and never got around to it.

And the whole time we worked more junk mail was delivered every day. I set up a refuse station in the entry just to deal with it.

Do they sell merchandise, too?

I get junk email from Dems, groups posing as Dems, and others.
99% goes to spam. I delete the rest so I can consider a donation later. Smiler
USPS brings some. That goes direct to trash. I think the long term effect of tossing it
immediately has helped to reduce the volume of that I get or maybe the cost of mass mailings
keeps that down.

Etiquette says only the incumbent gets to use the title of "President." You're nice to label this as disingenuous. I can think of other terms that aren't so genteel. Big Grin
