The Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump conservative group whose aim is to derail the president’s reelection campaign, has unleashed a devastating new ad that aims to be the mirror image of former President Ronald Reagan’s famous “Morning in America” ads.
The ad, which is titled “Mourning in America,” shreds Trump for his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic fallout.
“Today, more than 60,000 Americans have died from the deadly virus Donald Trump ignored,” the ad begins. “With the economy in shambles, more than 26 million Americans are out of work — the worst economy in decades.”
The ad then continues to hammer away at the horrific toll that Trump’s handling of the crisis has had on Americans.
“Many are giving up hope,” it says. “Millions worry that a loved one won’t survive COVID-19. There’s mourning in America — and under the leadership of Donald Trump, our country is weaker, sicker, and poorer.”
The ad concludes by asking “will there even be an America” left if Trump manages to win another four years.

Trump White House ‘flailing’ because they see election slipping away: AP reporter
On Monday morning, MSNBC "Morning Joe" regular Jonathan Lemire claimed that Donald Trump's manic spree of ugly tweets aimed at his critics -- combined with White House attacks on presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden -- shows that the president and his campaign are "flailing" because they know the election is likely lost.
With host Joe Scarborough asking, "What is going through the president's mind? What is his state of mind? Why does he seem even more unbalanced and unmoored today than he has over the past three and a half turbulent years?" Lemire stated the combination of the coronavirus pandemic with its mounting death toll and the collapsing economy is more than the president can handle.
Trump leveled on Morning Joe for spending Memorial Day weekend spewing nothing but ‘trash’
MSNBC's "Morning Joe" crew kicked off Memorial Day morning slamming Donald Trump for spending the weekend tweeting "disgusting" attacks on his critics, with one panelist saying if Trump was a relative, any family would step in.
After co-host Mika Brzezinski reading off a series of ugly tweets from the president that attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams, she added, "Why do we read these? Why do we read these? Because everyone is freaking out about what Joe Biden said. They're doing, like, two to three minutes of coverage, extensive coverage."
Trump burned as ‘the least masculine’ president in modern times by Naval War College professor
President Donald Trump's supporters think of him as the ultimate alpha male, but a scathing op-ed in The Atlantic makes the case that he's "the least masculine man" to be elected president in modern history.
Tom Nichols, a conservative professor at the Naval War College in Rhode Island, writes that he is baffled that blue-collar white men continue to support Trump even as the president has whiny tantrums about being treated unfairly in the media.
