Could the NRCC not say no to an unsolicted offer for Trump to campaign for Saccone, or were they do gobsmackingly stupid that they thought it was a good idea?

As we have seen repeatedly when Trump campaigns for someone else, the person is part of the scenery. It's among reasons why Trump aides are keenly aware a lot of Rs won't want him helping in person this year https://t.co/WWiD4LVB3q

Fun for that one guy, and of course his most fervent supporters!
Will any of them show up to vote for Saccone on Tuesday? How many of them are eligible to do so? How many of them even know who Saccone is?
Saccone says "To stand here speak before the president does, that’s the ultimate blessing"

Well, at least the stupid putz deserved exactly what he got…
… The rally, which had been rescheduled after the deadly Parkland, Fla., shooting last month, capped a frenzied stretch of fund-raising and campaigning on behalf of Mr. Saccone, who is locked in a tight race with the Democratic nominee, Conor Lamb.
“He’s an extraordinary person,” Mr. Trump said of Mr. Saccone, dismissing Mr. Lamb as “Lamb the Sham.” “The people of Pittsburgh cannot be conned by this guy Lamb, because he’s not going to vote for us.”…
While the rally was not specifically advertised as one for Mr. Saccone, a loss by him would mark the third time that Mr. Trump had thrown his political might behind a candidate without success. With his low poll numbers, Republican leaders and the White House are trying to determine how to handle his desire to campaign in the midterms…
Is this a rally for Rick Saccone?
Or is this a chance for the president to criticize CNN and MSNBC and talk about North Korea and hosting the Apprentice?

Only mention so far was right at beginning. "Do me a factor: go out and vote for Rick Saccone …and we can leave right now." https://t.co/mG1HE0Y9vm
