This One’s Gonna Sting

The morning after he barely cleared 50% in Iowa, we were waiting for him.

The morning after Trump frantically tried to bring as many people to the polls as possible in a historically low turnout primary – and barely eked out 50% in a field that could generously be called “pathetic” – we had an ad ready to go. And this one’s guaranteed to stick in his orange craw.

Voters need to remember that it’s not every day that you hear the GOP front-runner for president brag about how they’re going to be a dictator and then double down on it. We thought this was the perfect time to remind them:

If Trump takes back the White House, he will go through with his dictator plan. Our worry is that he won’t give it up after just one day. Come on, this is the guy who refused to leave office after FOUR YEARS. 

It’s time to wake up and smell the spray tan.

He’s not being cute.

He’s not exaggerating.

If Trump’s elected, our democracy will become a dictatorship. Help us keep this ad running>>

There is no time for complacency.

There is no time for living room activism. Every day must be spent asking ourselves if we’re doing our part, if we’re doing enough to ensure that the grand idea called America continues.
