How desperate are Democrats? So desperate they're now sending out fundraising pleas that look like collection letters — right down to the "FINAL NOTICE" warning on the envelope.
Democrats are in dire straits of late. With no real message and no real leader, the party is gasping to keep afloat. What's more, they're getting creamed in fundraising by Republicans, The Hill reported this week.
The DNC raised just $3.8 million in July, compared to the $10.2 million raised by the RNC in the same month. While the GOP has no debt, the DNC added slightly to its debt in July, which now sits at $3.4 million.
The Democrats haven't raised that little money in a July since 2007, when the party raised $3.4 million. ...
The RNC raised $86.5 million through the first seven months of the year, while the DNC raised about $42 million. The GOP also has a huge advantage in cash on hand — $47.1 million to $6.9 million.
So how bad is this latest move — trying to scare the working-class people the party failed to win over in the 2016 election by making them think they're about to stormed by the Debt Police? So bad that a Hollywood star (sort of) called the party out for its shabby tactics.
Others on Twitter soon followed suit, lashing Democrats for the underhanded move.
