Robert De Niro argues Trump has 'snapped' in new Biden ad

This ad is very powerful


President Biden’s reelection campaign released an ad Friday narrated by actor Robert De Niro that argues that former President Trump is an “unhinged, power-hungry candidate.”

The 30-second ad, titled “Snapped,” is part of the campaign’s $14 million paid media buy for May and will run on general market television and digital platforms across battleground states, as well as on national cable television.

“From midnight tweets, to drinking bleach, to tear-gassing citizens and staging a photo-op, we knew Trump was out of control when he was president, and then he lost the 2020 election and snapped. Desperately trying to hold on to power. Now he’s running again, this time threatening to be a dictator, to terminate the Constitution,” De Niro says in the ad.

It includes a clip from Trump saying that if he doesn’t get elected, it will be a “blood bath.”

turn out to be right-leaning assholes who you can never see of watch their performances again.

Sorry, that's just me. I can't separate the performance from who the person is.

I haven't watched an episode of "Seinfeld" since Michael Richards's N-word rant. Or anything with Cosby, Eastwood or Adam Sandler.

4. tRUMP is out of control, he's right. And what gets me, while quite a few republicans also realize that tRUMP is

out of control too, not enough of them feel this way, think that he's their God Figure. Makes me sick and I want to puke.

At least, tRUMP morons...you could have picked someone smarter and more able, and not the POS that tRUMP is.

But hey, you aren't willing to listen to the tons of your friends (what few you still have) who repeatedly told you that tRUMP is a diseased maniac, unfit for the highest office in the land.

Oh well. I've given up on dealing w/ cretins like tRUMP and his morons, don't even want to be with them in the same room as me, and I'm going to watch proudly as Pres. Biden, who does care a hell of a lot for this Country and us (and it's very obvious that he does indeed care for us and the Country) stomp, stomp, stomp tRUMP to pieces.

And tRUMP and his fragile ego will be crushed to pieces by overwhelming anti-tRUMP voters as people are finally, finally able to vote and release their long pent-up anger and hatred of tRUMP, and shut up the moron once and for all.

I think that the recent Libertarians howling in anger and hatred of tRUMP when he showed up, thinking that he would get a good reception, finally, finally showed just a snapshot of how people view him (they HATE him, I HATE him, and most everyone, I think, HATE him...maybe, just maybe tRUMP might read the room correctly for once, you think?).

Here, "investment" consists of monthly donations to the Biden-Harris campaign.
Will send them another donation this week!

The whole "democracy is at stake" thing is going to help with the sanies and normies. For some of smart money types, it might be better to add, "and your checks and 401(k) aren't chaos-proof, by the way."

I think the convention is going to be good.
