Trump-Pence Campaign Seeks Money To Support 'Unhinged' Ad Paid For By RNC

In a direct appeal to crowd-fund a paid media buy to distribute a video attacking liberals as “unhinged,” the Trump-Pence campaign this morning sent emails to its list asking for “another $1OO,OOO before tonight’s 9 P.M. airing deadline.”

The appeal does not explain the use of the proceeds or why there is a deadline associated with the ad, a greatest-hits sizzle reel featuring the most egregious attacks on Trump and his policies. It asks the list to “please watch the ad and you can decide for yourself if it’s worth it for all of America to see this.”

How the additional $100,000 in fund raising would help all of America see it, isn’t clear, because the video is already live on YouTube. Also, the ad itself ends with a disclaimer noting it was “paid for by the Republican National Committee” and was not “authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee”



The video (embedded below) begins with a voiceover of Bernie Sanders with the image of graffiti saying “Revolution or Death,” then cuts to:

* a snippet of comedian Kathy Griffin holding a mock decapitated Trump head

* a burning limo

* a voiceover of Nancy Pelosi

* video of Maxine Waters rallying a crowd to protest the Trump cabinet members

* video of Samantha Bee calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless” C-word

* video from the White House Correspondents Dinner of comedian Michelle Wolfe roasting Press Secretary Sarah Sanders grimacing

* video of comedian Bill Mahr riffing that the best way to get rid of Trump is to crash the economy

* video of actor Johnny Depp asking when was the last time an actor assassinated a President

* video of singer Madonna saying she has thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House

* closes with the super: “The Left in 2018: UNHINGED”

    Joseph Goebbels would have been proud of this little effort.
