Trump Campaign Shares Ad Showing Trump — As Yoda — Decapitating MSNBC and CNN
Donald Trump is Jedi Master Yoda in a new official campaign video tweeted on Monday. The Trump administration is getting in on the Star Wars Day festivities, though it’s a bit on the violent side. This isn’t the first time that the official campaign social media account for Trump has taken clips from popular movies for their ads.
Most recently, Trump became Thanos from Avengers: Endgame snapping away the Democrats. Before that, they used Bane’s theme from The Dark Knight Rises and got shut down by Warner Bros.
House Democrats can push their sham impeachment all they want.

In the Star Wars campaign video, Democratic hopeful Joe Biden is Emperor Palpatine as he executes Order 66 in Revenge of the Sith. CNN and MSNBC, two of the President’s favorite targets, are Stormtroopers who are violently beheaded by Master Yoda, though this time around it’s Trump with a smug smile on his face after he takes down the media. Order 66 didn’t work out too well for Yoda and friends and Thanos had a pretty hard time at the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame. It’s worth noting that Batman took down Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.
The White House Correspondents Association stated they were “horrified” by an intensely violent video from last year, which featured Donald Trump stabbing, shooting, and impaling the media, along with some of Trump’s other favorite targets Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Mitt Romney back in October 2019. The Trump administration claimed that they hadn’t seen it, though former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham tweeted that the president condemned the aforementioned video.

Twitter was grossed out:
Trump is obviously Jabba the Hut, not Yoda.

So… On a day when FEMA predicts 200k news cases — 3k deaths — a day by the end of the month, the President's team sends out cartoons. https://t.co/nOFEIwZFDS

For a party that constantly complains about others "playing the victim," Republicans sure love playing the victim. https://t.co/n8vWwKVmPz
