Are Mike Pence and Donald Trump telegraphing this stupid thing as an in-joke? Christ, I just don't know. But what I do know is, that level of sexist crap (along with racist crap and conspiracy theory crap) seems pretty welcome among the people who are working on this campaign, based on an investigation of their social media.
Now that probably isn't that surprising for people surrounding anti-PC Trump. I mean, his honorary co-chair in NY, Carl Paladino, has gotten flack for that sort of thing in the past regarding his emails of a sexist and racist nature. Kellyanne Conway, the current
And she's going to be the one who tries to clean up The Donald? Yeah. Ok. (And Steve Bannon isn't going to be any help on the messaging front either.)
With this level of message discipline and professionalism on display, can we be shocked that in one CO county, the Trump HQ office is being run by a 12-year old? I mean, what harm can a kid do, well there were threatening calls to some delegates during the primaries, but you know.... kids will be kids. (You guys, if my mom was the official field coordinator and she caught me doing that, I would be so grounded from campaign stuff, seriously!) He should have made his threats like Carl Paladino, alleged adult....by email. No one ever looks into those.
So do I really think Mike Pence and his momma are eating KFC like "take that, you pear-shaped liberal hag"? I have no way of determining whether anything this campaign does is ever unintentionally gross. I'm getting to where I assume grossness. (Although I don't want to think Mike Pence's momma is in on the joke.)
This is a disgusting campaign, and I hate looking at it. No one wants to toast marshmallows over a tire fire.
