Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 07, 2017

While Republicans are pushing Virginia voters to turn out for gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie on Tuesday, President Trump's son Donald Trump Jr. is lending his support over social media, but seemingly tweeted out the incorrect date of the election. Trump Jr. sent his first tweet around 8:00 a.m. Tuesday morning, urging followers in Virginia to take Gillespie "across the finish line tomorrow!"

Just before 11:00 a.m., he appeared to have the correct date of the election in a follow up tweet, telling voters if they "support" his father, then they should vote for Gillespie. ...

But around 40 minutes later, he once again tweeted the wrong date of the election. "Virginia, the future of the Commonwealth is at stake tomorrow," he urged.

... tomorrow ...

I saw this on the local TV news at 6pm. It was on the segment where trending social media items are showcased.

I just shook my head and winced...

This is a common strategy for a party that wants low turnout. It's been used for many years.

This is somewhat unique though, don't you agree?

In those situations the message usually comes from a PAC or some group that raised money for an ad and it's targeted at the opposition supporters.

If Aborted Monson is right, there are going to be some confused people bitching about fake news reporting an election win when the election hasn't even happened (or so they think).

It is. Usually this tactic is deployed via anonymous mailings. But we're talking about Trump here. Dog whistles and anonymous mailings are ancient history. Now the top of the ticket comes right out and says things that used to be unsayable.
