New Lincoln Project ad imagines a world where children still look up to the president
President Donald Trump responds to a question about Jussie Smollett (Screen cap).

A new ad from the Lincoln Project tries to get Americans to remember what it's like when children could look to the president of the United States as a role model.


The ad features a mother and her son talking about a homework assignment where the son is struggling to write about what he wants to be when he grows up.

His mother suggests he could write about wanting to be a good and moral person, although he replies that no one gets paid to be a good person.

She replies that he should write about being president because being president means that "you would have to be a good person."

The ad then cuts to an image of Democratic nominee Joe Biden and tells viewers that, "It's time for decency."
