Lincoln Projects new ad - 100,000 Dead Americans

The Lincoln Project has released another ad attacking Trump, this one featuring 100,000 body bags creating a montage of the American flag. The DNC needs to find a similar ad agency, I'm hoping it is saving up for an all-out blitz in Starting in September.

Again, the bright side to having such a terrible president is that the Dems get the assistance of attack ads from disgruntled Repubs ashamed of Trump, and frankly, their attack ads are better than Dem ads.

He'll soon be boasting about what an incredible number 100,000 is...... How he saved us from the scourge that would have killed millions and millions with his swift bold Chinese travel ban and auto-manufacturers-cum-ventilator-assemblers.

I'm content to let the Republican factions do their own dirty work with these hard-hitting ads for now. I think they are more effective coming from within the party than directly from the opposing party.

Heh. Just for fun, you ought to Google “President Trump for taking the bold decisive action to save American lives by cutting off travel from China”. This “bold decisive action” phrase must have tested well in Deplorable focus groups.

BTW, did Trump take action before anyone else? Um... no. Forty six other countries (including Italy) banned travel from China before Trump’s (partial) ban took effect.

Did Democrats (including Biden) widely criticize the ban as “racist”? No. Biden pointed out that Trump had a record of xenophobia, which is frankly undeniable. He never called Trump “racist” in regard to the ban, though Trump (and others) often claimed he did.

Did he save millions of lives, by taking action that was “opposed by almost eveyone”?

Ummm...well, you get the idea.

Still waiting for some Patriotic Republican (If there are any left) to Run for President and Split the vote!

“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

Given the current trends, we probably will reach 200,000 COVID-19 related deaths by sometime this Fall. Maybe people will be paying attention.

Given the current trends, not likely. Acceptable losses to the Trumpsters... after all, it's a gosh darn war we're fighting against this virus! patriot smiley

For all of the political hacks out there, if I hadn’t done my job well, & early, we would have lost 1 1/2 to 2 Million People, as opposed to the 100,000 plus that looks like will be the number. That’s 15 to 20 times more than we will lose. I shut down entry from China very early!
