From our Whiskey Tango Foxtrot desk
Here at the Global Worldwide Headquarters, the hardworking staff has gotten used to receiving missives from the ATM wing of the Republican Party, having once subscribed to the late, lamented Weekly Standard, which clearly peddled its readers’ data like artisanal cheese in Park Slope.
Even so, we were slightly taken aback when we received a four-page letter from Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna (Don’t Call Me Romney) McDaniel that began thusly.
Blah blah blah . . .
Sure enough, this was attached.
The instructions were very clear.
The questions were also very clear – ly rigged. First the Trump Agenda Survey asked us to rate how important a number of issues – which ranged from building a border wall to fixing our broken health care system to cutting job-killing regulations to confirming more original-intent confirming federal judges – should be to the Cheeto in Chief.
The only scale provided was “with 1 being most important.”
The best questions, however, the Trump Agenda Survey saved for last.
Fomenting political violence? Undermining the foundations of our society and democracy?
Isn’t that the average Trump rally?
Hey – they asked.
