The Lincoln Project Presents “War Zone: America or Trump”

From Campaign Brief

The Lincoln Project has done it again.

It has masterfully created another ad with eye-catching imagery that demonstrates the choice voters face in the upcoming November 3, 2020 elections.

Titled: “War Zone: America or Trump,” the ad recounts Mr. Trump’s reckless actions over the last week from hiding in a bunker to turning the troops on the American People to using religion in a vain attempt to hold his base.

The most notable quotes from the video (access below) are:

“When Donald Trump came out of hiding this week, he didn’t do it to bring us together or heal the nation…He became what we always feared, evoked the worst of our past…threatened our governors and states. He ordered our own soldiers…instructing them to turn against Americans. Used churches and the Holy Bible as political props…..Ordered an attack on unarmed protestors using gas, rubber bullets….Washington transferred into a war zone for this coward. This is a time for choosing: America or Trump.”

Most people would pick America. They want to see more of this from their leaders:

  1. Why is it only Never Trump Republicans like the Lincoln Project the only ones making these effective ads? Are Democrats incapable? Or are they fearful of being criticized by the likes of Chuck Todd? C’mon Democrats! Don’t have disaffected Republicans like the Lincoln Project fight our battles for us!

      • Those are good Biden campaign ads, what I would expect from a candidate’s campaign. Tough & the truth. We’re on the same side so you can dispense with the snarky “take care” style sentiments you entertainingly lavish on Kavanagh & his ilk.

    • I’ve been following some never Trumpers Twitter feeds for the last few years, the Lincoln Project folks, like Rick Wilson, George Conway, and Steve “Sarah Palin for VP” Schmidt.

      They’re not trying to get anyone to vote for Biden directly, even though they all say they will, they’re trying to get Trump to see the ads and over-react and self destruct.

      The folks at the Lincoln Project are making ad buys in the DC area during Trump’s favorite shows, like Fox and Friends in the morning.

      Usually campaigns don’t spend money in DC, I forget why, it’s a waste for some reason.

      But the folks at the Lincoln Project are some of the same folks who have gotten some pretty greasy Republicans elected using some pretty sleazy tactics over the years.

      The ads are for an audience of one.

      They are not approaching Trump as just another candidate in a normal year, they know he’s mentally ill and are using that against him.

      Some of the ads were about Brad Parscale and how much money he’s milking from Trump’s campaign, to get Trump to see his money going out the door and his poll numbers dropping and fire Parscale.

      Stuff like that.

      It’s brilliant, very “Art of War”, and based on his responses so far, it’s working.

      Trump has to “punch back”, even if it makes him look stupid, and it exposes his instability to those folks who only know him from The Apprentice and think he’s an actual successful businessman.

      People like Rick Wilson have been saying Dems don’t like to get into the mud and that’s why most of the country is under GOP rule, even though it leans Blue.

      The Lincoln Project folks are all pretty deplorable under normal circumstances, but in Trump they finally found a bridge too far, even for them.

      The Dems like to think we win on ideas, and we should, but until November 4th, I’m all for being in the mud with the Never Trumpers.

      • “People like Rick Wilson have been saying Dems don’t like to get into the mud and that’s why most of the country is under GOP rule, even though it leans Blue.”

        Thank you for a doing a better job than I in articulating the ad route Democrats need to take. The low road as well as the high one.
