President Donald Trump’s campaign warned in a wild, over-the-top text to voters Saturday that antifa will “attack your homes” unless they send money to help Trump win the election.
That message was fired off just days after it was revealed in journalist Bob’s Woodward’s book “Rage” that Trump lied about the severity of the COVID-19 outbreak because he claimed he “didn’t want to create a panic.” He told Sean Hannity earlier this week: “I can’t be jumping up and down and scaring people.”
That message was jarringly out of sync with the Trump campaign warning. It warned: “ANTIFA ALERT: They’ll attack your homes if Joe’s elected. Pres Trump needs you to become a Diamond Club Member. Your name is MISSING. Donate.”
The warning is pure fantasy. There is absolutely no evidence that such an attack will occur. (In fact, according to the Department of Homeland Security, the biggest domestic terror threat in the U.S. is from white supremacists.)
So to be clear this is the campaign of the guy who claimed he did not warn the American people about the severity of the Coronavirus because he did not want to panic them.
All this guy does is try to terrify people into voting for him.
Really? Antifa is going to attack your homes unless Trump is leading the country?
What kind of magical thinking is that?
And before anybody suggests that this is Trump’s campaign and he did not necessarily okay the tweet let me remind you that Michael Cohen said that Donald Trump micromanages EVERYTHING and that nothing happens without his okay.
