The Lincoln Project, a group of former Republican strategists, has made it their mission to wake up their party and shake the hold that Donald Trump has on it. They’ve reminded the country through anti-Trump ads about his failure to address the intelligence that Russia was paying bounties on the heads of U.S. soldiers, that Trump’s coronavirus response had caused so much loss, and that he’s just an entirely incompetent president.
The latest ad by The Lincoln Project imagines a young Republican voter waking up after a three-and-a-half-year coma to learn what Trump has done since his election to the presidency. His parents and sister, avid Trump supporters, have to inform him that Trump never built that wall, that Mexico never paid for it, that Trump had kept up the momentum from Obama’s economy only to watch it all crash and burn because of his response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and that he had been impeached.
Taken altogether in a short summary, the news of Donald Trump’s presidency is astounding. The reports to the poor boy who’s woken from his coma also include 150,000 dead Americans, a president who is friends with Vladimir Putin, a paid-off porn star, and the reason they’re all wearing masks.
Upon hearing the news, which his family members have grown used to the chaos and incompetence over time, the young man pulls the plug on his life support system. He, representing the Republican Party itself, flatlines and dies.
