As Donald Trump prepares for a rally on Ohio Governor John Kasich’s home state, Kasich’s superPac New Day for America has launched a 47 second web ad designed to exploit some of Trump’s most reckless comments.
The ad splices clips of controversial Trump comments including the now infamous Arizona Sen. John McCain isn’t a war hero, his creepy joke, “if Ivanka weren’t my daughter perhaps I would be dating her,” and the racist sounding, “I have a great relationship with the blacks. I’ve always had a great relationship with the blacks.”
That’s followed by a text screen saying, “Commander-in-chief?” before the audio of Trump’s interview with Don Lemon where he attacked Megyn Kelly, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.”
The spot closes with “The Donald” asking during an Iowa stump spot, “How stupid are the people of Iowa?”
The ad effectively communicates some of the issues of most concern to many Republicans, that often Trump speaks before he thinks, making him appear un-presidential. The problem is that (in my experience) most people supporting Trump will not be swayed by such a message because his lack of Presidential-like tact is appealing as it shows him to be unlike the Washington insiders who have disappointed them so often.
