On Sunday, the Biden campaign released an ad to try and smear President Trump for his coronavirus response yet again. The ad features a man from Michigan and leads viewers to believe he’s a struggling business owner directly because of the Trump administration and their handling of the virus.
Joe Malcoun, the man in the ad, co-owns a bar called “The Bling Pig”. In the ad he describes his booming bar and blames the Trump administration directly for their struggles. In the ad he says, “This is the reality of Trump’s COVID response. We don’t know how much longer we can survive not having any revenue. A lot of restaurants and bars that have been mainstays for years will not make it through this.”
Surprisingly, though, Malcoun is not struggling as bad as he claims. He is a wealthy democrat and is doing just fine despite the virus and national lockdown. In July, a time when almost no restaurants and bars were open, he donated $5000 to Joe Biden’s campaign.
This ad is another political attempt, par for the course in an election, to smear President Trump and convince others to vote for them. But this isn’t based on any fact. Trump is against lockdowns, he wants the country to fully reopen again. He’s been trying to provide relief to Americans, efforts that are being halted by the democrats but the way.
Weird that Malcoun would plead with voters to elect Biden, saying that he [Biden] is the only way to economic success, when it’s democrats like Joe Biden who are in favor of the incessant lockdowns. He said so himself, “I would shut it down; I would listen to the scientists. We’re going to do whatever it takes to save lives.”
And President Trump has affirmed repeatedly he wants the country open, “We won’t be closing the country again. We won’t have to do that.”
This ad is just another leftist tactic to entrap the American people into voting for them. They carefully create these fascinating stories and skew facts to make it seem like truth, science, logic, reasoning, common sense, etc. is on their side. When in reality they are lying to voters, this ad proves that.
