DNC Releases Killer Ad: Retrumplican Party

From Business Insider:

The national Democratic Party released a new video Thursday that connects the entire Republican presidential field to the immigration remarks made by real-estate magnate Donald Trump.The Democratic National Committee’s video is titled, “Retrumplican Party.”

The brief clip intersperses some of Trump’s most controversial comments with the other GOP candidates’ own statements against illegal immigration.

“Trump may be running for president,” the video concludes, “but his ideas are running the party.”



ON-SCREEN TEXT: Donald Trump has a lot of thoughts about immigration.TRUMP: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.

ON-SCREEN TEXT: Sound familiar?

RICK PERRY: These individuals are responsible for over 3,000 homicides, and almost 8,000 sexual assaults…

CANDY CROWLEY: I have to point out that a number of fact checkers have said that that 3,000 homicide figure is wildly off.

TRUMP: I will immediately terminate President Obama’s illegal executive order on immigration.

HANNITY: Would you repeal Obama’s executive amnesty?


MARCO RUBIO: I believe we should stop the executive action.

MEGYN KELLY: Do you think the Republicans should move to undo the President’s executive action?


GRETA VAN SUSTEREN: Would you reverse President Obama’s executive action?


KATIE COURIC: Do you believe in providing a path to citizenship?


TED CRUZ: I introduced an amendment that eliminated a pathway to citizenship for those who are here illegally.

HANNITY: Legal status but not citizenship.

JEB BUSH: Exactly.

SCOTT WALKER: No amnesty – if someone wants to be a citizen they need to go back to their country of origin…

TRUMP: They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists…

TED CRUZ: I salute Donald Trump for focusing on the need to address illegal immigration.

ON-SCREEN TEXT: Trump may be running for president

ON-SCREEN TEXT: But his ideas are running the party.

The final touch is a Republican elephant logo morphing into a Trump elephant logo:

It’s a brilliantly simple ad, showing voters that there is little to no daylight between Trump’s views and those of the rest of the Republican field. The takeaway – the entire GOP is a racist, anti-immigrant party. Done and done.
