1. More b-roll for trump and the gop convention.

 

That and the video of Lori Lightfoot justifying banning protests in her neighborhood alongside pics of the St. Louis idiots waving assault weapons at the peaceful protesters.

9. I don't doubt there are many agent prococateurs paid by Trump & the GOP.



It's their style and the timing is right.

12. Trump and the GOP don't have to pay them

They are happy to make Trump campaign ads for free. And I doubt they have much interest in politics, or even BLM.
