OMFG - Just got a call inviting me to a Donald J Trump event!

I missed a lot of the call - I was swearing at the recording by Ivanka and some other nutjob woman.

I stopped swearing long enough to note the call back number: 646-736-7139 The call came from "Donald J Trump 334-521-3063."

So, if anyone in the Tallahassee, Florida area wants to go to a victory rally for the short fingered vulgarian, call that number. Apparently it is free.

If I were younger I might consider infiltrating the event but I never liked crowds and would not be able to hold my thoughts back. They'd probably beat me to death.

I wonder about them calling me - I am a registered Democrat and have been registered Democratic since I was old enough to vote. I have never voted for a Republican in my life and never will. If they are calling Democratic registered voters, maybe they are having problems filling their Nuremberg style rallies?

2. I, too, got that call

And I, also, am a registered Dem as is my wife. Not only got the call once, but twice. Of course, I vented into the phone (yes, I know it was a recording) but it made my day a little brighter.
The Con Don must need some rally pills to pump up that already bloated ego.

3. I wouldn't go to one of his "rallies" if he held it in the house next door.

The man is a traitor. Period. Nuff said.

5. In my rant at the recording was that I wouldn't go for all the billions The Donald claims to own!

Found an earlier call yesterday from Donald J Trump from 850-532-6222.

When I looked up the 334 number it is associated with various scams - Craigslist, Medicare funeral expenses, health insurance, and student loan scams (as identified by people who got the calls).

4. I got the same call.

Or not exactly the same but similar - probably for the same event up somewhere I didn't want to go.

7. Researching to numbers it looks like a scam, not a Trump effort - as if a difference!

The number the call came from is associated with various scams from Medicare to Craigslist. I got a call from a different number that caller ID said was from Trump that is also associated with scam calls. Either the Trump people are using scammers associated with known scams or scammers are using his name.

10. The Clinton campaign was only calling Democratic voters

I have no idea who the Republicans were calling.

12. The Democratic party has a huge database of voters

They started with public records of voters so if you ever gave a phone number to the elections people in your county, that would be in there. Over the years they have added information from volunteers and cross referenced public information such as phone books and city directories.

The first thing every election cycle that is done is to call the Democratic database to verify phone numbers and remove wrong numbers, disconnected numbers and deceased voters. As that is done, they look for volunteers to make calls and that phase continues all the way through the campaign.

I am not sure if the Republicans have as complete a database. I do know that at least once I was put on a Republican contact list because I called my Tea Party US Representative to complain about one of his votes. I only managed to get off by warning them that every single time they called, emailed or sent me a letter I would donate more money to his Democratic rival. The Republican contacts stopped and his opponent won her election.
