Super Bowl viewers disgusted by ‘gaslighting’ Trump campaign ad: ‘He’s trying to prove he’s not racist’

One of President Donald Trump’s campaign ads was released ahead of the Super Bowl, but the second was held back as a kind of surprise to viewers. Those who saw it were not only surprised but disgusted.

Interestingly, two Fox commercials ran on either side of it, so no other companies had to touch his ads.

The ad talked about thanks to Trump’s criminal justice reform; families are being reunited. It’s an odd brag because Trump has spent the last few years taking children from their parents on the border and putting the children in holding pens with little food, water, clothing, baby supplies, medical attention, or even adequate bathrooms.

The criminal justice reform law has been part of what Trump claims he has done the best, but he wasn’t exactly the one who came up with the idea, lobbied for it, and got it past the House and Senate. He’s merely the one who signed it into law and held a huge press conference around it. Trump’s actual criminal justice policies involve more policing and supporting officers so they can shoot anyone they want.

As Wesley Lowery pointed out, the same people Trump supposedly released from prison for ridiculous low-level offenses, his Justice Department is now trying to keep those people in prison.

Others noted the hypocrisy that Trump ranted at black players for bringing their politics into football, but now he’s doing exactly that with his campaign ads.

Mike Bloomberg was the only other Democrat to spring for an ad.

2020 Election

Our military is up to something in South America

Published

With withering poll numbers and a flip of control of the Senate ever more likely, Donald Trump may be preparing to end Radical Republican rule with one last big bang—a war in South America.

For over a year now, our country has been quietly building forces near Venezuela, a nation with a leftist regime that this country has long sought to upend. Just last month, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took a whirlwind three-day tour of Venezuela’s neighboring countries:

Trump asserts dictatorial power over civil servants

Published

on

In a major power grab, Donald Trump signed an executive order on Oct, 21 that asserts he has vast new authority to punish federal employees with demotions or firing without cause. It’s a Trumpian assertion of a right to cronyism and personal fealty to him.

This executive order purports to grant Trump dictatorial-like power over thousands, of career federal managers and executives. They are now at risk of losing their jobs and careers unless they blindly follow Trump’s agenda with abject loyalty to his whims.

Trump tries to shame media out of covering the pandemic with frantic all-caps tweet

Published

on

With one week to go until the 2020 presidential election, President Donald Trump does not want to talk about the novel coronavirus pandemic.

In a frantic all-caps tweet posted Tuesday morning, the president once again ranted about all the attention the media is giving to a pandemic that has killed more than 220,000 Americans in just eight months.

"ALL THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA WANTS TO TALK ABOUT IS COVID, COVID, COVID," the president wrote. "ON NOVEMBER 4th, YOU WON’T BE HEARING SO MUCH ABOUT IT ANYMORE. WE ARE ROUNDING THE TURN!!!"

Despite the president's claims, there is no indication that America is "rounding the corner" on the pandemic.
