The Trump administration is unprofessional.
We know this; it's an incontestable fact. From mindless rambling to hurling petulant insults to deft avoidance of answering questions or providing anything of tangible substance, Donald Trump's presidential term has proven to be quite the sh**show so far. One in part because of the abhorrent political circle he constructed and has since confined himself to.
This email sent by the Republican National Committee, however, is entirely unprecedented. Seriously — we didn't see this one coming. According to the Independent, the email says,
"Since even before Inauguration Day, Democrats, the media, and the entire opposition have tried to take down President Trump by resorting to nasty attacks and spreading fake news.
But President Trump has fought back and been vindicated time and time again – and he will KEEP FIGHTING to deliver on the promises he made to you, the American people."
"Vindicated" is an interesting word choice, no?
It's the survey within the email itself, however, that'll dumbfound even the most cynical.

"Now we're conducting a poll to prove that the American people are behind our great movement." [Note, many of the American people are not.] The poll continues: "Do you stand with President Trump?"
Turns out, the options are very, very limited.
Either you "Stand With President Trump" or you "Believe Democrats & Fake News."
What happens if you select the latter? Well, this.

Welcome to Trump's America, the land of the free-thinking. Unless, of course, you oppose him.
