The Republican National Committee on Tuesday released a fake schedule of the upcoming fall meeting hosted by their political counterparts at the Democratic National Committee, including fabricated panels like “Where is Michigan?” and “No Money, Mo Problems.”
The RNC sent an email to members of the press with the subject line “ADVISORY: Major Updates to DNC Fall Meeting,” referencing the DNC’s summit in Las Vegas this weekend.
The advisory schedule was full of made-up panels and speeches mocking Democrats for various things from the past year, including “Where is Michigan? A geographical presentation of what exists between New York and Los Angeles” and “The Menendez Mess: How to keep a convicted felon in the United States Senate,” a nod to the ongoing corruption trial of New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez.
The point of contact for the faux schedule was DNC Chairman Tom Perez, for which the RNC used a “brown.edu” email address in an apparent nod to Perez’s new position as a senior fellow at Brown University.
Brown said upon announcing his bid to become DNC chairman that it would be “full-time job” and the party would be best served with “someone committed here for the long haul,” according to The Baltimore Sun.
