The Most Effective Ad for Clinton and Congressional Dem Candidates?

One showing Trump’s plane taking off or landing, and a voice and written message saying: You help pay the salaries of the air traffic controllers who ensure Donald Trump’s safe travel in his private Boeing 747 (or whatever it is). BUT DONALD TRUMP DOES NOT.

Okayyyy. Since you haven’t been living in a cave the last few days—and even if you have been—you’re aware of the news events of the last 48 hours.  And of the reaction to them among, say, blue-collar whites in Toledo.

The reactions are three-fold: that Trump was a really awful businessmanAnd that Trump is the Ultimate Welfare King.

And that the U.S. Tax Code is really, really, really appalling.  And that Trump proposes to change the tax code to further increase his and his children’s wealth.*

But, still.  With a very effective ad campaign, the Dems could with the Whole Game.  So here’s my entry for what would be the coolest ad ever (okay, in a long time):

One showing Trump’s plane taking off or landing, and voice and written message saying: You help pay the salaries of the air traffic controllers who ensure Donald Trump’s safe travel in his private Boeing 747 (or whatever it is).  But Donald Trump does not.

The ad should end with: Help end the Citizens United campaign-finance regime.  And help force the restructuring of the Tax Code. VOTE DEMOCRATIC FOR SENATE AND HOUSE.

In Ohio: How would Ted Strickland vote on these?  And how would Rob Portman vote on them?

In Florida: Ever check out Marco Rubio’s suggestions for changes to the Tax Code—and which way those changes would go?

Etc.

Etc.

Bernie and Elizabeth could accomplish this, I think.

Go. For. It. Dems.

There’s no time like the present to start THE REVOLUTION.

*I’ve been pleading with Clinton for many months now here at AB to campaign intensely on the specifics of Trump’s tax plan.  She’s finally doing that, thanks to the NYT’s weekend revelation.
