The message, which quoted the president, was mocked on social media for sounding more like an elementary school playground insult than a communication from a presidential campaign.
The subject line was “Kamala is HORRIBLE” and calls her “the meanest, most horrible, most disrespectful,” among other things.

“I cannot believe Joe Biden would pick her as his running mate,” the message continued.
Many of Trump’s critics on Twitter couldn’t believe it was a real campaign communication:

I signed up for Trump emails because I like to know the messaging coming from them. Their Kamala stuff is laughably desperate and childish. I’m psyched. pic.twitter.com/cRsjVSAXy2— Oliver Butler (@oliverbutler) August 13, 2020
“She’s the meanest, most horrible, most disrespectful!” Says the man who calls women “horse-face,” has killed 162,000 Americans, cages children; says he “grabs women by the pussy,” black people are “low IQ” “sons of bitches” who should be “fired,” & Obama was “born in Kenya.” https://t.co/cM4peTpBIh— Andrew Wortman (@AmoneyResists) August 13, 2020

Just this instant received a fundraising appeal signed by President Trump. It opens: "Kamala Harris is the meanest, most horrible, most disgraceful, MOST LIBERAL of anyone in the U.S. Senate..." Good to see the campaign is off to such a civil start! #BidenHarris #ElectionTwitter— Larry Sabato (@LarrySabato) August 12, 2020
If Trump goes onto lose, his inability to land effective attacks will be why. All the history you have to work with and you come up with Sleepy Joe and this desperate email. https://t.co/CNPbfV1RjU— Breonna Taylor #ACAB 🌹 (@jsways12) August 13, 2020
"meanest, most horrible, most disrespectful" does not seem particularly creative or cutting pic.twitter.com/J7dumxRsxK— Kathryn Watson (@kathrynw5) August 13, 2020

Trump’s fundraising email starts: “Kamala Harris is the meanest, most horrible...”— Christina Wilkie (@christinawilkie) August 13, 2020
Even weirder than that opener is the backhanded compliment that follows it: “I can’t believe Joe Biden would pick her.”
Perfect example of the messaging salad coming out of Trump 2020 right now. pic.twitter.com/QeqvOTUbT9

"Kamala Harris is the meanest, most horrible, most disrespectful, MOST LIBERAL of anyone in the U.S. Senate, and I cannot believe that Joe Biden would pick her as his running mate."
"meanest" - lower case— 📬Save the Mail With Swamp Lizard📬 (@DiscoTempoJazz) August 13, 2020
"horrible" - lower case
"disrespectful" - lower case
"LIBERAL" - ALL CAPS
At least they know what characteristics their base actually cares about. https://t.co/ix70LjJWEv
