While political ads don't have to be true, trump is true to form with the majority of his being full of bull****.

In Benedict Donald's mind replacing actual fact with alternative facts to either make himself look fabulous or make his opponents look evil. Manipulating America's Gullible Always.

Trump Ads Attack Biden Through Deceptive Editing and Hyperbole
We reviewed all of the Trump campaign’s television ads since June. Two-thirds contained clearly misleading claims or videos.


President Trump’s re-election campaign has spent tens of millions of dollars on television ads attacking his Democratic opponent, Joseph R. Biden Jr. While their content varies greatly, be it the coronavirus, police funding, taxes or charter schools, the tactics used remain constant: selectively edited remarks and exaggerations.

The New York Times reviewed 22 ads from the Trump campaign that have aired since June and that have been tracked by Advertising Analytics. We found that 14 of those ads contained clearly misleading claims or videos. Here’s a review.

I loved listening to an Ad on my radio the other day that was a 911 Voicemail basically telling people they would be raped and the Police wouldn't be coming. That is not how Defund the Police works, and the Right knows it. They are just pandering to people they think are stupid (I.E Their Base) in hopes of scaring them to vote Trump.

Sounds like desperation.

Ordinarily, an incumbent president runs positive ads about their accomplishments not attack the challenger to the incumbent.

Trump has nothing to run on. He wanted to run the economy but his botched COVID-19 response killed the economy. Unemployment is 10%. GDP has retraced back to 2010 levels. The only thing doing well is the stock market, which ordinary people aren’t heavily invested.

The Republicans might be out-doing the Democrats in the campaign incompetence department. That kind of stupidity just panders to dimwits who were already going to vote for Trump and alienates thinking Republicans. It certainly won't attract any undecideds. They're just narrowing their support.
That might be what decides this election, who screws up worst.

Fear sells, and that's pretty much all Trump has right now.

Well, he's got that health care plan. I missed the announcement of the details but I remember him saying it was coming...

"In a FOX News interview taped July 17 and aired two days later, Trump told Chris Wallace:

“We’re signing a health care plan within two weeks, a full and complete health care plan that the Supreme Court decision on DACA gave me the right to do."

He wouldn't have said that if it wasn't true, right?

What is striking is the similarity of the graphs up till spring 2020. Is Trump claiming credit for the EU's expanding economy also?

why not, he took credit for Obama's economic turnaround

He enjoys taking credit for others' accomplishments....because he has so few of his own. I hear he is under consideration for a Nobel Prize.:roll:

That’s a good point. One point I was making earlier was that you can’t tell from the graphs when Trump took over. The slope is the same from 2010 to early 2020, furthering the conclusion that Trump was just a passenger on Obama’s economic train.

In Biden's introduction of Harris he lied repeatedly by using the bull**** that has been spoonfed to the leftists over the last several years. His comments on Charleston are the same empty headed bull**** lies that people here swallow and regurgitate on a near daily basis. You people make yourself look stupid with your cries about "Trump lies"...because you all do that **** in the daily. You are not only liars but you are hypocrites to boot.

The economic hit is global, no doubt about it. Thing is, this pandemic has greatly diminished trump's 'the strong economy only I could build' campaign message. He's going to turn off tens of millions of struggling americans with all the coronovirus fallout by telling them how great "his" economy is doing.

His administration's world leading pathetic response to the coronavirus is exacerbating the economic pain of working class america.

I hope Trump continues to run on the "The economy is GREAT!" premise.

Anyone who is being evicted or laid off is just stupid, right? They're sure to vote for Trump.

Oh, and his awesome healthcare plan that is "right around the corner!" Ubetcha!

i don't watch political ads very often because they suck and are designed to manipulate the gullible. however, without watching one King Tangface ad, i can definitively predict that all of them are bull****.

i don't really want to watch those, either. i might watch a couple of each candidate just to do it at some point. however, unlike in the past, our current tv watching habits generally mean that i mostly only hear about the stupid propaganda bull**** on here. if one popped up on a podcast or something, that **** is probably getting turned off with the quickness.
