Amateur Hour Continues at the Trump Campaign

They are behaving like amateurs over there. Let’s review. First, it turns out Donald Trump knew about the Colorado rules changes last August. So he never got his act together, lost Colorado, and is now whining about the rules changes. Second, the deadline to register for the New York Republican Party was last October and two of Trump’s children did not do that. Trump was a candidate for President and no one on his campaign thought anything about two of his kids not being registered to vote for him.

Now there is Washington. The Trump campaign confused Washington the state with Washington, D.C.

The campaign sent out a mass email meant for supporters in Washington state on Friday, encouraging them to sign up to be Trump-aligned delegates at their county GOP conventions. The email states the deadline to register is April 6, two days before the email went out.

To make matters worse, that deadline wasn’t even entirely accurate. The party requires would-be delegates to register with their county parties three days prior to their county conventions, but those conventions are not held on a uniform date across the state, so technically there is no single deadline. But for the round of county conventions being held Saturday, the Trump email still came a day late.

The email wound up being sent to people who live in Washington, D.C.

What a poop show at Team Trump. I thought he hired the best minds and top men. That’s what he claimed at least.
