61 days until Doomsday… a.k.a. Election Day. It’s no secret The Lincoln Project has made their decision to cast their ballots to vote out Donald J. Trump, failed commander-in-chief, and his administration.
The political group’s advertising message is crystal clear – Trump never had intentions to “Make America Great Again.” The President has sat in his office, built by slaves, with his sycophant staff patting each other on the backs while crushing women, Middle Class America, and Black and Brown Americans with power points, spreadsheets and lies.
Eight months into 2020, there are 180,000 people dead, and 51 million people unemployed. America is losing the battle to COVID-19. The only thing Donald Trump has been successful in is the collapse of America.
The Lincoln Project, is an American political action committee formed in late 2019 by several current and former Republicans, including Kellyanne Conway’s husband George. The goal of the committee is to prevent the re-election of Donald J. Trump in the 2020 presidential election, and defeat his supporters in the United States Senate.
Their campaigns expose facts on Trump’s actions that have led us here. His belittling and bullying behavior, ignorant beliefs on racism, women’s equality, immigrant families, and human rights. They’re vocal to express that Trump struggles with a mental health issue, is dangerous and evil, and is feeding conspiracy theorists YouTube for thought.
A new spot features a voiceover from Los Angeles Clippers’ coach Doc Rivers. The audio is taken from the coach’s talk with reporters after the Clippers’ 154-111 win over the Dallas Mavericks in Game 5.
Rivers gets emotional on social injustice and racial inequality following the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Watch below:
In April 2020, the committee announced their endorsement of Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden. Since then, their ads have shown personal interactions of Biden connecting with people on a human level. Showing compassion with a child, who also shares a speech impediment. Joe Biden shares how he was able to overcome his stutter, and how this child can, too.
He shares his message against a backdrop of the chaos Donald Trump has manifested in his version of America. Joe Biden reminds Americans, “ Trump fans the flames. Trump adds fuel to every fire.”
