Father's Day Surprise..I'm now part of Team Trump. How?

2016_06_15_212350_26

Imagine my shock and dismay this Father’s Day morning when I went to check my emails and lo to my surprise this appeared….


Steve,

We’ve been with Mr. Trump since the beginning of this campaign. We have seen a lot of things. There have been personal attacks on Mr. Trump from all directions, the media has mischaracterized a lot of things he said, and there have been a lot of times when it would have been easier to give up.

We have seen even more great things. The crowds at rallies have been inspiring and the letters, emails, and tweets of support have been amazing.

While many candidates and campaigns claim to be part of a movement, there is no doubt that Mr. Trump has woken up America.

We are so close to making America great again, but we could use your help to push us over the top. Will you commit $50, $25 or even $5? Your support, whatever it is, will make a huge difference in this campaign.

We appreciate all you do. We would not have been able to get to this point without you.

Thank you,

Team Trump


This is just a sampling, as this is one of three (3) that arrived in my inbox today.  Needless to say, I never signed up to be a member of Team Trump, nor would I even consider becoming part of such a despicable presidential campaign.   I would rather poke needles in my eyes or drink a glass of anti-freeze before I would entertain such a thought.  Needless to say I went to the bottom of the email to look for the link to un-subscribe my email address from future notifications.

When I clicked on the above link to unsubscribe, a new email window appeared with this vague email address…

and I when I tried to submit, this message appears…


Please specify correct emails. Incorrect emails:[email protected]ndr.net?Subject=Unsubscribe&body=Please remove me from further mailings


Simply put, it appears to me the Donald campaign is so un-ethical and dishonest that you are not even permitted to un-subscribe from campaign email notifications that you never signed up for to begin with…!

Is it fair to say this is somehow a desperate attempt by a presidential campaign that is so disorganized and behind in fundraising that they will resort to any tactic, no matter how low, in order to raise money?
