In the era of the Trump Horror, we're far beyond the "Willie Horton" dog whistle stage. The racist in the White House is now openly employing the most debased kind of incitement against his political opponents.
Today's example is a new ad released by the Trump re-election campaign, complete with an ending that says "I'm Donald Trump and I approve this message" -- accusing Democrats who oppose his insane border wall fantasy of being "complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants."
Yes, that's where we're at in 2018. The president of the United States is accusing the Democratic Party of murder. I'm only posting this disgusting, vile video at LGF because we shouldn't look away from what Trump is doing to the country.
But to make this even more insulting to our intelligence, one of Trump's flunkies went on Chuck Todd's sideshow today and tried to deny that the Trump White House has anything to do with this ad.
NBC’s Chuck Todd asked Marc Short, the Trump White House’s director of Legislative Affairs, if airing an ad like that was helpful in the effort to reach the compromise needed to reopen the government.
“Well, you know that ad was produced by an outside group…” Short started to respond, before Todd interjected, “‘Donald J. Trump for President’ is an outside group?” repeating it again in incredulity. The ad concludes with Trump saying “I’m Donald Trump and I approve this message” and a photo of Trump with two thumbs up.
“It’s done from a political organization, it’s not done by people working inside the White House,” Short said, before attempting to pivot into a general argument for solving “the problem of immigration coming in, and the threat it poses to our country.”
Notice how Mark Short slipped up and revealed the true agenda, by saying "the problem of immigration coming in." When they drop the word "illegal" from descriptions like this, it's not an accident.
