In an “Analysis” titled “Trump shocks with racist new ad days before midterms” CNN’s Stephon Collinson claimed it was racist to show footage of Mexican illegal alien Luis Bracamontes bragging about killing police officers.
In the most racially charged national political ad in 30 years, President Donald Trump and the Republican Party accuse Democrats of plotting to help people they depict as Central American invaders overrun the nation with cop killers.
The new web video, tweeted by the President five days before the midterm elections, is the most extreme step yet in the most inflammatory closing argument of any campaign in recent memory.
The Trump campaign ad is the latest example of the President’s willingness to lie and fear-monger in order to tear at racial and societal divides; to embrace demagoguery to bolster his own political power and the cause of the Republican midterm campaign.
Here is the Ad that CNN is referencing:
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 31, 2018
This might be an all-time low for CNN. This add displays aliens who have committed murder and were only able to do so because they were let into the country illegally.
Here is Jake Tapper and CNN backing up this anyalsis:
Reminder that the Willie Horton ad — as shocking as it, too, was— was not actually put out by the Bush campaign. https://t.co/f6oyjId6O7
