Most respondents questioned why the RNC wanted them to send wishes to a private citizen. After all, President Donald Trump’s second son (who turns 34 on Saturday) is not a member of his father’s administration.
A sampling of the responses are as follows:
Why is the GOP asking us to sign a birthday card for a private citizen?
My sister in law’s bday is next week, and she’s a Republican…can you coordinate similarly for her?

Why in the world would a political party busies itself to ask the American population to send happy birthday cards to Qusay or Uday?

How is this normal? He’s got no official role of any kind in government–or even in the @GOP. Is this a poke in “liberal” eyes, or the ongoing codification of a “royal presidency”?

For an early bday present I am happy to send you a copy of Fire & Fury. Let me know if you want the Kindle or iBooks version!

Don’t remember @GOP asking us to do this for the Bush girls. Certainly don’t begrudge the guy enjoying his birthday but This. Is. Bizarre.

Hey GOP. It’s my daughter’s birthday. If you can ask us to sign a birthday card for a private citizen, you can do the same for her too.
