Donald Trump’s America

The Trump campaign has released a new political ad, “You won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America”.

There’s just one problem — the video is completely in the present tense. The voice-over uses present tense — as if Biden is already president — and the images and video of protests and violence are also from the present, which is in Donald Trump’s America.

The ad seems rather weak, actually. It claims that Biden wants to “defund the police”, even though Biden has consistently said the opposite. Instead, they have Biden saying “Yes. Absolutely!”, which sounds like it was taken out of context and could have been about almost anything. The entire ad has production values of a cheesy horror show, or of a melodramatic movie like “Reefer Madness“. So, watch it if you DARE!

The Washington Post fact checked this ad, and gave it 4 Pinocchios (a whopper of a lie).

    It really feels like a movie trailer.

    The book is probably better.
