Priorities USA SuperPAC Will Spend $2 Million on Ads Supporting Hillary Clinton

Democratic SuperPAC Priorities USA will be spending $2 million on advertising in the Peach State on behalf of Hillary Clinton in the runup to the November election. According to a story by Mother Jones, the group chose a commercial called “Our Daughter Grace,” which includes video of Donald Trump mocking the disability of a New York Times reporter.

“I think it’s one of our most powerful ads,” says [Justin Barasky, communications director for Priorities USA Action]. “There was nothing that brought the vitriol and disapproval [more] than a 70-year-old billionaire mocking a disabled person did. So that really does—I don’t know if appeal is even the right word—but it certainly turns off virtually everyone.”

The spots have run in Atlanta, Macon and Savannah.

Trump supporters, remember the stink will never scrub off.

Geez, that’s what they’re wasting their money on in GA? I guess at this point they have so much money leftover that they can just run any POS ad anywhere. No different than when she holds a government title, money grows on trees, spend it all.

Polling suggests that attacks on that time he, a grown man, mocked a disabled person, have been the most effective. That turns off more voters than the time he attacked and mocked a Gold Star Family, the time he attacked a federal judge, the time he mocked Alicia Machado, the time he followed-up on mocking Alicia Machado with a 3am tweetstorm telling people to look at a sex tape that doesn’t exist, the time he openly bragged about being able to get away with sexual assault, the time he proposed banning an entire religion from entering the US, the time… Read more »

“Look at that face, would anyone vote for that?” and “He [McCain is not a war hero” and “Whites killed by blacks — 81%” and…..

A rather contemptible person, but only because the media says so.

I mean maaaaybe he could rectify being just an utterly despicable person by having a firm of grasp of at least one issue. Yet at every debate, in every interview, and at every rally he sounds like a freshman poli sci student who didn’t do the reading all semester, never showed up for class, and didn’t even cram the night before because he was out groping women. Like, I’m honestly convinced he doesn’t even know how a law is passed.

He does have a grasp of at least one issue—what’s in it for him. Rubes don’t even realize the deal he’s setting up is at their expense.

And of course Hillary has nothing but altruistic intentions for her campaign. Come on Dave, there is only one candidate in this race who has proven time and again for at least 3 decades that she first focuses on what’s in it for her and her corrupt enterprise. Trump is risking his brand, livelihood and future prosperity of his family for this run. You can cut on him for other characteristics, but not that he’s running to enrich himself.

“You can cut on him for other characteristics, but not that he’s running to enrich himself.” So when he starts Trump TV after the election that isn’t enriching himself? The reason he ran was to expand is brand and make money. Which is what he is going to do when he finishes burning the republican party to the ground.

And yet, he IS running to enrich himself pretty directly in the classic Nathan Deal way: His campaign pays himself for office space, his book, events at his own facilities, flights, and all the rest. http://fortune.com/2016/08/24/donald-trump-campaign/
