Why do the media giants MeidasTouch call themselves after the mythological King with the golden touch? Because “the truth is golden.”

Their latest ad #WallAgainstTrump is certainly pure gold. They sent their tweet to the President’s twitter account, with the message:

Mothers, vets, nurses and dads hate you. In fact, everyone hates you. You are a disgrace to the country and you are in for a rude awakening this November.

To divide us

The video opens with Trump declaring: “We’re going to build a wall. It’s going to be built” to a chorus of cheers. The camera pans over a towering segment of the wall on the Mexico-USA border. Bold text appears in capital letters:

“TRUMP TRIED TO BUILD A WALL.”

The rousing background music gets louder. It’s the classic musical score played when the hero runs through the finishing line, or the soldiers walk victoriously into their hometown, or a child stands up to the playground bully.

Think Chariot of Fire with a twist. New text appears:

“INSTEAD THE PEOPLE BUILT A WALL.”

The narrator tells us that “moms, aunts, and grandmas have come out to downtown Portland” over footage of women in masks and carrying pickets flooding into the street to protest against Trump, and for the Black Lives Matter movement.

Trump’s divisive presidency has united mothers, war veterans, patriots, and civil rights leaders. The video reminds us that through some of the darkest times in the recent history of the United States, Americans have stood together. The uplifting and stirring music is interwoven with scenes of women, men, children, and people of all colors and ages standing strong against riot police and barricades.

Expect to feel every hair on your arms stand up.

MeidasTouch may have taken their wall metaphor from Portland. The recent Portland protests over racial injustice and economic inequality have sent headlines around the world.

Scenes of suburban moms, elderly veterans, and brave neighbors facing down riot police and teargas have roused the nation. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler went to talk down the protestors and was tear-gassed in the face. For the first time in history, the mayor then joined the protestors.

Trump probably won’t like these poems, though.

What other kinds of walls could Trump build?
