Trump Released His First Campaign Ad and He Wants You To Call Him To Praise and Thank Him
It seems Donald Trump’s re-election campaign has come up with their first ad for 2020, and it involves you calling the president and giving your thanks and singing his praises.
No, this is not a joke.
Campaign manager Brad Parscale narrates the ad, asking people to get on their phones and “deliver a personal thank you” to Trump for making America great again or whatever.
“We need to let President Trump know that we appreciate what he’s doing for America,” Parscale said. “I need you to call the number on your screen and deliver a thank you to President Trump.”
Twitter had a field day:
Brad Parscale looks like a partially waxed testicle.

I’ll thank him when he resigns. That’s all.

Too bad he won’t be the candidate in 2020!

I would vote for my 12 year old dog with a bad heart before I would vote for him!

Ugh. Another reason to stay away from TV. I guess it will be Netflix from here out until Trump is gone for good.

They know they won't be able to manipulate social media as much, so they are going to start spamming people's phones directly.

They want to be able to text their mob directly (w/out social media.) The orders will come right from Trump to his followers mobile phones. That's their plan.

First 2020 ad? This Trump ad, featuring his campaign manager @parscale, just aired on CNN. It’s a minute long and asks viewers to call an 800 number to leave a thank you message for POTUS. I called the number and it leads to a fundraising appeal (not unusual for pres campaigns) pic.twitter.com/yB3Rb1pJKe
