Another pro-Trump ad uses footage from Russia
[www.politico.com]

A new pro-Trump super PAC ad uses stock footage from Russia and Belarus in a major ad buy that’s airing in three swing states. It’s the fourth time in three months that an ad promoting President Donald Trump’s reelection has used footage from Russia.

America First Action last Thursday launched an ad called “Pandemic Tax” in Florida, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin as part of a $10 million ad campaign slamming Joe Biden for supporting bad trade deals and arguing that he would raise taxes on “all of us.” But some of the people featured in the ad were actors in stock footage from Russia and Belarus.

This is the fourth time a Trump-affiliated group has used Russian footage in an ad. A digital ad last month released by a fundraising arm of the Trump campaign called on people to “support our troops” but used a stock photo of Russian-made fighter jets and Russian models dressed as soldiers.

Another Trump campaign ad also used footage of a conveyor belt with cardboard boxes saying “MADE IN THE USA” that was created by a Russian photographer and illustrator, and a pre-recorded video at the Republican National Convention used stock footage of a factory in Moscow.

Interesting. The images Steve linked to were a right click on my browser -- that right click brought me not to the image but to a warning page that FF didn't trust the site. I'd need to override the warning to get to those pages.

Not really a problem, I could get there if I wanted -- just found my nanny browser response interesting.

Trump is running a very nasty tv ad here in Los Angeles that shows a woman holding up a card with writing; she gradually tosses away successive cards, with the overall message implying that Biden is a bad guy who will do bad things to us. It's an official Trump campaign ad. Meanwhile, Biden is running a few ads about how he will support health care etc. The question is why either is spending a penny in this market, considering that California is a Biden lock, like 20 points or so. Maybe these are polite gestures to the big donors from the area?

I've seen the same ad in Michigan and it made me crazy. I could only watch it once because it's all lies.
