Progressive Groups Betting Trump’s Briefings Will Be Left’s ‘Greatest Ammunition’
Progressive groups that are spending millions to define President Donald Trump as an incompetent ignoramus and egomaniac during the coronavirus crisis are betting that Trump’s own words at his press briefings will be their “greatest ammunition,” according to a Monday Washington Post report.
As Trump uses the daily briefings to run circles around an inept and clueless legacy media that still seem to be stuck in the 2000s, the coronavirus, according to a recent Mother Jones report, “made it clear to progressive operatives and advocates that they had an immediate role to play, and that they could make a big difference by launching ad campaigns that define Trump on the election’s new and biggest question.”
According to the Post, Trump’s “marathon” briefing sessions only give progressive groups more ammunition because “all of Trump’s performances are scooped up by Democratic super PACs — which employ entire teams dedicated to watching the president and logging his various comments. The most damning sound bites have begun to form the drumbeat of the November election.”
Priorities USA has reportedly spent $7.5 million in ads in battleground states working to win over “persuadable voters who sided with President Barack Obama in 2012 and then backed Trump, or those who chose Mitt Romney in 2012 and then Hillary Clinton.” Other groups like Protect Our Care and Pacronym have also tried to define Trump to voters now when nearly much of the country is under stay-at-home orders.
Guy Cecil, chairman of Priorities USA, told the Post: “It’s important when you have a president who’s literally just lying, misinforming, mismanaging, that you use the president’s own words.”
The group is trying to convince voters that Americans “are in this position now because the administration didn’t take it seriously.”
“We could run a 10-minute ad every hour, and still not scratch the surface of how the president has misinformed people and sent contradictory messages,” Cecil told the Post.
Last week, as Mother Jones noted, Priorities USA Action started running ads in “the swing states of Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin” that “splices clips of Trump downplaying the crisis with a growing chart showing the rising number of infections in the United States.” After the Trump campaign issued a cease and desist letter, the group doubled down and put up an updated ad in Arizona.
