Evidently, those behind the anti-Trump Republican group known as The Lincoln Project are among the Americans who have had enough of the Trump family’s utter nonsense. In a new video ad — which was viewed almost half a million times on Twitter alone in about an hour — The Lincoln Project memorably mocked Ivanka Trump (the president’s daughter and adviser) for a staggeringly tone-deaf ad campaign that she helped roll out recently. In the ad campaign, which was the work of a White House panel on employment that she’s involved with, Americans are admonished to “find something new.”

That’s a staggeringly ignorant piece of advice — it’s as if Ivanka and the rest of those behind the ad think that the problem is a lack of resolve to “find something new” on the part of Americans who are struggling. About 140,000 Americans have died due to the Coronavirus, and numbers are quickly rising each and every day. Tens of millions of Americans have filed for unemployment in recent weeks and months as Trump’s complete lack of an effective Coronavirus response has wrecked the economy. And this is the best that Ivanka could come up with.

In the new Lincoln Project ad, a narrator mockingly says:

‘With 135,000 Americans dead, and our economy on the edge of a new Great Depression, Ivanka Trump has some advice: find something new! Oh, of course! Why didn’t we think of that? It’s so simple! How about jewelry design? Have Daddy loan you a few million to get started. Or fashion — once you get millions in Chinese trademarks: cha-ching. You can even get a job in the White House. Just ask Daddy! The important thing is to find something new. I mean, who cares if you’re about to be evicted, or lose your health care, or can’t make ends meet. Find something new! Can’t feed your kids? Let them eat cake.’

Memorably, the narrator concludes by commenting:

‘Ivanka is right about one thing. This November, we will find something new, and it won’t be her Daddy.’
