Trump Defenders Attack

More

I'd give even odds that this email (and subsequent reply) is from Donald Trump himself. But since I can't prove it, we'll just say that this is an example of Trump's defenders--what, you didn't think he had any?--rising up to protect his good name in a way that can only be described as "classy":

Dear Little Man,

You would be wise to stay away from topics you don't understand (mainly politics, and, from the looks of it, probably sports).  I'm sure you wouldn't like it if you were someone who was actually successful, and insignificant 'losers' published silly, critical articles about you.  To be more specific, when you criticize someone as successful and powerful as Donald Trump, it makes you look even more of a pathetic loser than you already are.  Furthermore, not only is your writing less-than-impressive, but your ideas are foolish, ignorant, and incoherent.  I suppose your job pays more than one at Mcdonald's, though. If it doesn't, please reconsider your line of work.  You might fit more appropriately in a setting that isn't so intellectually challenging.

Wishing you a career in which your ideas aren't displayed,

A reader from whom you ripped away 3 entire minutes

Mr. Trump,

These emails are really unbecoming. You're better off focusing on the campaign. Regards, 
Josh
