The Republican anti-Trump group The Lincoln Project has unveiled a harsh new ad, this time targeting President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign manager, Brad Parscale, who previously ran digital media operations for the Trump team before his elevation to his present position. As the ad outlines, Parscale has been living large on the president’s campaign’s dime, even as Trump’s political position continues to falter. Parscale and Trump himself seem to be banking on relying the same kind of racist, antagonistic behavior that propelled Trump to his surprise 2016 victory — and the campaign continues to reek of outrageous grift.

A narrator in the new Lincoln Project ad explains:

‘Meet Brad Parscale. From deadwood to the man Trump can’t live without. Brad is getting rich. How rich? Really rich. Don’t tell Donald — he’d wonder how Brad can afford so much. A $2.4 million waterfront house in Fort Lauderdale. Two Florida condos worth almost $1 million each. He even has his very own yacht, a gorgeous Ferrari, a sleek Range Rover. Brad brags about using private jets.’

Within an hour and a half of posting, the ad already had over a quarter of a million views on Twitter alone. Check it out below:

The leaders of The Lincoln Project include Republican consultant Rick Wilson, conservative lawyer George Conway — whose wife, Kellyanne, is a longtime top Trump adviser — and more. Trump has already publicly whined about George Conway in the past, but that’s not exactly slowed down The Lincoln Project’s operations. Recently, they launched a digital ad called “Mourning in America” that outlines the president’s abject failures in responding to the deadly Coronavirus pandemic and has spread far and wide around the web. That ad in particular is apparently now even running on television.

Trump freaked out in response to the Mourning in America ad, which highlighted the loss of life and other damages in the U.S. that he might like to forget. He called those behind the ad a “group of RINO Republicans who failed badly 12 years ago, then again 8 years ago, and then got BADLY beaten by me, a political first timer, 4 years ago,” but as one of those behind the ad, Reed Galen, pointed out, “no commercial should have the power to derail the leader of the free world.” Trump proved their point about his instability.
