Saucedo referred to his campaign on election night as "data-driven" and I almost spit out the water I was drinking.
The Saucedo campaign has been modeled after the Trump campaign for those of you who haven't noticed the blatantly obvious. But they are also the biggest producer of fake news of the election cycle.
More on that when I hand out sprinkles later.
There is a saccharine quality about Saucedo that is completely undeniable. He's about as authentic as NFL merchandise at the Bronco or a J-Town boob job.
So the rehearsed and fake confidence at his campaign party on election night wasn't a surprise. I expected it.
But let me show you just how "data-driven" that amateur night shit-show of a campaign really is - on May 3 the campaign put out their newsletter and it proudly proclaimed that according to poll data, Saucedo was "officially in a dead heat".
When the first early voting numbers came out, Saucedo was down by nearly 25 points...in a crowded field...in a race with record-low turnout!
On what fucking planet is that a dead-heat? Seriously, the people who counted the crowd at Trump's inauguration are blushing!
They were either lying or they don't know shit about data.
Here's what the data REALLY said:
It said Margo whooped his ass.
Here's another one they told...
On Xtra Saucedo was pissed about not getting the endorsement of the El Paso Times and he and his team had some pretty freaking sour grapes about it. Saucedo himself went so far as to call the endorsement of the El Paso Times the "kiss of death".
There's no way to walk that one back.
Also, its completely wrong. All the candidates they endorsed are in the run-off and in good shape - Annello, Haggerty, and Brown.
So aside from the incredibly dumb campaign move of insulting the daily paper of record, and then being wrong about it, he then takes his hypocrisy to a whole other level.
He goes from calling the paper the "kiss of death" to sending a screenshot of the headline and proudly proclaiming "We did it!"
Did what? Came in 20+ points behind your opponent and you have no money left?
Seriously, who writes that shit? Its getting better than Trump's tweets. And by better I mean more detached from reality.
