Though the words used to narrate the MeidasTouch video were intended for presumptive democratic nominee Joe Biden, the attack ad does a masterful job at depicting how Donald Trump and his family do the very things they accuse Biden of. From teleprompter gaffes to nepotism to small turnouts at rallies, Trump has very publicly made the same missteps.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic and a flailing political campaign, those mistakes have been amplified. As noted in the ad, more than 135,000 American residents have lost their life to the novel outbreak. Andrew Bates, Director of Rapid Response for the Biden campaign, credits that to Donald Trump spending the last six months “disastrously mismanaging the worst public health crisis in a century, the whole time failing to heed the warnings and guidance of medical experts.” He also adds in a statement shared with ESSENCE, that tens of millions have lost their jobs due to this very reason.
Thousands have retweeted the "Bye Don Jr." ad in support of an end to “hypocrisy, stupidity, and nepotism.” Only voter turnout in November will determine if that will actually take place.
