A new anti-Trump ad from the Really American PAC shows the violence in Donald Trump’s America, violence fueled by President Trump’s words.
The video shows Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden repeatedly denouncing violence.
It also shows then-nominee Donald Trump from his 2016 nomination address, saying: “The irresponsible rhetoric of our President, who has used the pulpit of the Presidency to divide us by race and color, has made America a more dangerous environment than frankly I have ever seen.”
Those words, it turns out, were prophetic. Or a promise.
And it shows candidate Trump fueling the fires of violence.
“Part of the problem is nobody wants to hurt each other anymore,” Trump is shown saying.
“Knock the crap out of ’em, would you?” Trump is shown saying.
It also reminds voters there have been dozens of documented acts of hate violence where the perpetrators directly pointed to Donald Trump as their motivation.
Take a look at the ad that’s already garnered close to 200,000 views in just 90 minutes:

Outrage against Dianne Feinstein as potential Judiciary chair comes out against Senate reform
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) received harsh criticism on Monday after coming out against Senate reform of the filibuster.
“I don't believe in doing that. I think the filibuster serves a purpose," Feinstein argued.
"It is not often used, it's often less used now than when I first came, and I think it's part of the Senate that differentiates itself," Feinstein falsely claimed.
Feinstein is in line to chair the Senate Judiciary Committee if Democrats regain the Senate, despite never attending law school or having ever tried a case.
Lindsey Graham announces embattled Sen. Joni Ernst will vote for whomever Trump nominates to replace RBG
The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday announced that GOP members of the body would be united in voting for whomever President Donald Trump nominates to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court.
“The nominee’s going to be supported by every Republican in the Judiciary Committee," Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said, as reported by The Washington Post's Aaron Blake.
If Graham is correct, that would mean that Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) would be backing the nomination, despite trailing Democratic challenger Theresa Greenfield.
A Never-Trump Republican changed her mind — then crumbled when she tried to explain why
In a recent op-ed for the Washington Post, Republican Danielle Pletka declared that despite the fact that she refused to vote for Donald Trump in 2016, she now feels compelled to support him in 2020. The piece quickly caught fire online, inspiring ridicule and sympathy from differing corners and triggering a surprising amount of discussion.
In one sense, it’s hard to see what the big deal was. The Post publishes opinion pieces in support of Trump frequently, and this one was not particularly special. Pletka herself is not a particularly notable figure. Like many op-eds, it was sloppy and unpersuasive, making huge leaps of reasoning and glossing over critical points in the argument. It didn’t take seriously any compelling counterarguments. It was, in other words, a mere display of partisan loyalty from a Republican who would prefer to be inside the tent than outside of it.
