An Unexpected Email

A couple days ago I got an email from Don Benton, a state legislature  GOP rep from WA. He's also apparently the coordinator for Trump in the west. The email asked if I would call and talk to voters about Trump, and how I could even do it from home!

My reply:

Mr. Trump

Got your solicitation in the email today to call people about Mr. Trump.  I'd be happy to talk to people about him, in fact, I already have. 

Here's a post about him, one of several, that I made regarding Mr. Trump on my blog. I don't have a ton of followers, around 42, but they seemed to respond to it.  Let me know what you think.

I'm making a wild guess you didn't really read the email I sent yesterday about mr trump yesterday. Nor look at the link, my blog.  It's true what I said about already talking about him for some time, it's just not what you might think. Here's another shot at it:

We'll see what they say, but if they send me a phone list, I'll call them. You betcha. 


  1. I got a call from the Tea Party and am now kicking myself for not answering. I am sure they would like me to talk about their candidates as well. Missed opportunity.

  2. HA! That is a classic. They didn't even read your email.
    I wish they would respond to your last message...

  3. Keep up the good work for our next president, Mr. Trump, Mike. Oh, wait a minute. You're not?

    Never mind.

  4. OMG, I hope they send you that list, Mike!

  5. Haven't heard a thing from them, doubt I will.

  6. Good work! They should be careful what they ask for huh? No on second thought, more of us of like mind "should enlist our help."
