Disturbing Trump radio ad

Playing in the Philly area, maybe nationally?
Young man introduces himself as serving with the US Marines. He starts by stating that "in January 1981, on the day of Ronald Reagan's inauguration, the Iran government released the US hostages." He goes on to say that our powerful military, a legacy of St. Ronnie, is in danger of being cut by the Democrats and that only Trump can keep the nation safe.
I was only 22 then and just starting to be aware of politics, but I remember that well. The Hostage Crisis was the top of the headlines in 1979-1980. Incumbent President Jimmy Carter was made to look ineffective by his failure to have the hostages released. And it's a well known fact that somehow, candidate Reagan paid off the Iranian government to delay the release, to embarrass Carter and make him lose the election. It worked, and the ultimate kick in the face was the release on the day of the inauguration.
So--Ronald Reagan committed TREASON by colluding with the enemy to influence the outcome of an election, not to mention harm to the hostages by delaying their release--and the GOP is BRAGGING ABOUT IT in their ads??? Can they sink any lower?
Our side must put out a rebuttal to this and remind people what their hero St. Ronnie really did, before he was even President.
