I am getting sick of Trump commercials

Last edited Fri Jul 3, 2020, 08:32 AM - Edit history (1)

But I suppose it's a good thing that the Trump campaign feels they have to spend money to buy ads in Texas. One of them says "Biden's slipping " and then show a bunch of clips of Biden sounding incoherent.

The other one talks about factories closing, shows Biden saying China is not the problem and then say, no Joe Biden is the problem.

Has anyone seen these? I'm guessing they are heavily edited and taken out of context.

Additionally: He's not running ads on the Spanish channels. I guess he's totally written off the Hispanic vote.

1. Yes, I've seen them. They're annoying and not effective, clumsily edited.

But fine, let him waste his money ....


At the end of this Lincoln Project clip a Republican voter is asked about the ad, and she sounds like she's going to vote for Biden (she says Trump's not much younger, and Biden would surround himself with good people):

4. They keep showing them on CNN and MSNBC

on an old Black and white TV with an antennae like Joe is so old. He can still walk up a ramp, while drinking water and without toilet paper on his shoe.

I am ready to call the stations and tell them to stop running the ads but that doesn't do any good unless I am an advertiser with big bucks.

15. I saw one during Rachael the other night and couldn't figure out why

they would waste the money - probably a substantial amount to place an ad in her time slot.

No one watching Rachael would be moved toward Trump by an ad (or anything else), so it just seemed like a waste of money. I can see why they'd play them maybe during the day but anytime from 7pm through Midnight is just throwing money away.

17. I figure they either have too much money in their campaign

so why not try to find converts or they are getting desperate.

18. Desperate would be my guess - or, to simply piss us off.

Which if I'm to be honest, it did me.

The last thing I want to see is something lying about how great Trump is.

5. The problem is the Ads are supposed to be Pro Trump but they attack Biden

on things that people associate with Trump .

6. I saw the one with a voiceover saying "Joe is slipping."


Oddly enough, it was right after Joe did his press conference the other day sounding quite coherent and Presidential. I just laughed at it because it was eerily like tRump saying Puppet? You’re the puppet. If anyone is slipping it is tRumpolini.

7. I never sit thru the ones that pop up and certainly never click on one

But yeah they are everywhere. I find it ironic when those pop up on a Covid tracker site.

8. ALERT!!! - they WANT to know which ones bother us...

Trump's campaign is monitoring the reactions of liberals to gauge which ads piss us off the most...then those go into heavier rotation in an effort to suppress voter turnout - every voter that fails to show up or cast a ballot equals one fewer vote they need to manipulate, change or suppress on election day.

Don't believe the hype and don't fall for their BS.

Donnie and Co.? I LOVE all of your ads, in fact, I would recommend HUGE buys on MSNBC until election day...you know, those viewers who are 'natural' Trump votes

9. They're Laughable

Clumsy, marginal quality, and loaded with obvious errors.
I don't see that sloppiness changing many swing minds.
But, yes, they're annoying.

11. We're inundated

In Florida too. Mute button is handy when they frequently appear. But good he's spending money where he shouldn't have to.

12. The ones I've seen are poorly made.

Very amateurish compared to the pro Biden ads being made by several different organizations.

14. The ads are having no affect on Joe Biden's poll numbers.....

But Trump's most definitely. In the toilet. Biden's ads are hitting home runs.

16. Weak messaging.

Voters are seeing a overwhelmingly strong Biden campaign kicking Trump's ass on issues that matter. But sure Donald... keep going with your tired old mean girl strategy.

19. Even getting them in Illinois, a reliable Blue State. They are flailing, throwing money at this.

There is absolutely no chance of Trump winning Illinois. They are flushing their money away. I am glad to see it.
