From TPM Livewire: Report: Trump Camp Tells House GOPers 'No Waffling' On Support For Nominee

In a memo to House Republicans on Thursday, the Donald Trump campaign pressured lawmakers to openly express their support for the Republican nominee as Election Day fast approaches, the Washington Post reported.

"No waffling, no week [sic] knees," Scott Mason, the Trump campaign's director of congressional affairs, wrote in an email to House Republicans obtained by the Post.

"I know we are less than 11 days to the 2016 election. But it is imperative that we continue to drive Republican support for the top of the ticket," Mason wrote.

"That means we need your direct, strong support for the Trump/Pence ticket,” he continued. “Now is the time. No waffling, no week [sic] knees. Hillary Clinton has given us, and continues to give us — and the country — every reason on earth that she is not worthy of winning this election. We strongly urge you today to make a statement — take a stand — and step out for the Trump/Pence ticket.”

3. I wonder if this is a cut and paste of the email

"no week knees"

Good lord, no wonder our country is headed down the tubes... a director of congressional affairs for a major party is a moron and can't spell for shit.
