If the Presidency of Donald Trump is a sinking ship, the Lincoln Project is punching holes in the side. The latest ad released by the group of anti-Trump Republicans is a chilling timeline of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States.
Donald Trump is shown as a grainy, floating head. Underneath him, a stark red line depicting the victims of COVID-19 crawls upwards. With each of his dismissive statements such as “It will go away with the heat” and “we have everything under control,” the line moves upwards. A toll of infections and deaths in the top left-hand corner changes so fast the numbers are almost too blurred to read.
As the President says: “We have done a tremendous job”, the counter shows: “31,573” cases.
Twitter threw Trump’s lifejacket overboard.
Sounds like rats being moved off the sinking ship. pic.twitter.com/KYB1vn0LV9
