A brutal new ad from MeidasTouch was released on Wednesday afternoon aimed directly at President Donald Trump’s supporters, who have been filling the campaign coffers at a time many are suffering.

The ad shows the tragic way that the economy has crashed since the coronavirus pandemic went ignored by the president for months.

“Trump is begging you for money,” the ad says, showing screen captures of text messages the campaign has sent out to supporters over the past several months.

“Money to support Don Jr.’s girlfriend and Eric’s wife,” the ad continues, showing that both women make $180,000 each year working for the 2020 campaign.

“His hotels,” the ad then says, showing that the campaign and the Republican Party have spent $17 million at Trump properties.

“Ferraris for his campaign manager,” it goes on, showing that former campaign manager Brad Parscale has scored over $40 million from Trump, his campaign, and PACs.

“Golden toilets for Jared and Ivanka,” the voice says, though it’s unknown if the first family has golden toilets the way the president does. While Jared and Ivanka don’t make a government salary, they have earned as much as $157 million together in the past year according to financial disclosures.

It closes by telling MAGA donors, “don’t be Don’s next con.”

“This is what the Loeffler team went to the Trump team with,” said Gaetz at a campaign event for Collins. “They went and said, ‘Look, you guys gotta get Doug Collins out of this race’ ... She said, ‘I have $50 million for this project, and I can either spend my $50 million getting new voters and helping the Trump campaign, or I can spend that $50 million taking out Doug Collins.’”

Foreign hackers cripple Texas county’s email system with a simple malware attack

Published

on

Last week, voters and election administrators who emailed Leanne Jackson, the clerk of rural Hamilton County in central Texas, received bureaucratic-looking replies. “Re: official precinct results,” one subject line read. The text supplied passwords for an attached file.

But Jackson didn’t send the messages. Instead, they came from Sri Lankan and Congolese email addresses, and they cleverly hid malicious software inside a Microsoft Word attachment. By the time Jackson learned about the forgery, it was too late. Hackers continued to fire off look-alike replies. Jackson’s three-person office, already grappling with the coronavirus pandemic, ground to a near standstill.

Fox News built an ‘alternative reality’ to allow Trump to steal the election — and get away with it: Political scientist

Published

Fox News has laid the groundwork for President Donald Trump to steal the election -- and get away with it, according to a political scientist.

Rachel Bitecofer, an election analyst and senior adviser to the Lincoln Project, told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that right-wing media had created an alternate reality that gave Trump's allies permission to believe he was saving democracy by stealing the election.

"Here's the thing you guys need to understand and America needs to understand," Bitecofer said. "I've been talking about this for a while, you can see this if you watch any of the congressional testimonies. In Republican world, it is they that are defending the institutional purity [and] Bill Barr is American hero, okay?"
