The Lincoln Project shifted somewhat into humor with its latest two ads.
The first one, called “Fauci” starts off as a tribute to the leading infectious disease expert in the country, noting that “he has quietly worked to keep America safe” while serving in the last six Presidential Administrations.
It then segues into a critique of Donald Trump starting with the narrator pointing out “so, at a time when the truth has been under assault, he (unlike Trump,) has always been straight with us.”
The narrator then berates Trump for attacking Fauci “because Trump failed America” and is avoiding responsibility for his mishandling of the Coronavirus.
The narrator concludes with:
“Who do you trust. Donald the Dope (showing clips of Trump promoting the use of disinfectant to get rid of the virus) or the Doctor?”
“To protect our families on November 3, we can make Donald Trump disappear. It’s not a miracle. It’s Democracy.”
The second ad, called “Story Hour” has a gentleman reading excerpts from Mary Trump’s recently published work on the life of her Uncle titled “Too Much and Never Enough.”
The presenter immediately ridicules Trump for unsuccessfully trying to stop the release of his niece’s book.
He then cites passages that refer to Mr. Trump’s
- Rigid Persona that was incapable of growth and adapting.
- Unchecked emotions.
- Inability to “synthesize information.”
- Need for approval even from people he would not associate with (like those who attend his rally’s) on a regular basis.
- “Deep-seated insecurities.”
- “Fragile Ego that must be bolstered every moment because he knows deep down he is nothing of what he claims to be.”
The presenter concludes with taking a drink, telling Mr. Trump “see Donald one hand” and telling the audience that there would be another episode of Story Hour tomorrow.
This would be funny if the American People were not living it in real-time.
