Wait, was that it?

Courtesy of Yahoo:

While the RNC ad does contain soundbites from Democrats Bernie Sanders and Maxine Waters, it’s not really making an argument against Democratic policies. What this really is is the Fox News-ification of political advertising, hitting all the pop-culture fake-news stories that Fox & Friends and Tucker Carlson Tonight invent and repeat again and again. The audience for this ad understands what it is and approves. On both YouTube and the Reddit page called “The Donald,” commenters write many variations of “Republicans never would have made an ad like this before Trump!” That is absolutely correct and another sign of how Trump has de-intellectualized political thinking in the United States.

I actually do not think that the Republicans needed much being de-intellectualized, but admittedly Trump has not exactly raised anybody’s IQ. 

My favorite part is how this advertisement takes a whole bunch of statements and performances by Democratic politicians and celebrities out of context and then weaves them together to create the image that they are some kind heretofore unknown terrorist organization. 

As if Kathy Griffin is preparing to strap on a suicide vest and try to hug Donald Trump. 

The entire thing smells of desperation in response to the realization that the majority of the country is not only opposed to their president but is calling for his impeachment and removal from office. 

Besides how can a party who elected a reality show host to the White House attack Democrats for having celebrities friends with a straight face?

    “Dangerous celebrities…” ooooh, batten down the hatches! I don’t agree with, and quite frankly turned off by, what many celebrities say but defend their right to do so.
    This is our Constitution. Boo HOO Fox News that they’re rightfully mocked and taken to task. Words have consequences. DEAL with it.

    Considering that trump just threatened anyone that speaks out against him, why should we be worried what celebrities are saying.

    Of course he makes his threats on FOX, otherwise I would like the journalist to ask him exactly what is he going to do? call out his flying monkeys, send in the National Guard? Shoot everyone that criticizes him? Come on trump put your money where your butt hole mouth is and tell us what are you doing to do!

      He doesn’t know, I’ll bet you? What an inept POS; and why he holds his rallies.
      Keep the “masses” riled….and I’ll bet he loves every minute of confrontation that he sees on television.
      Thoughts and prayers, my keester.
