This year the campaign ads coming out from the anti-Donald Trump people are much different than they have been in the past. Take the most recent ad produced by the Joe Biden-Kamala Harris people and released to NBC. Its deceptively simple premise is one of the teacher (President Barack Obama) telling the student (Harris) about her 2020 campaign partner.
The two of them joke around, keeping it light, enjoying themselves. She talks about working out with liter water bottles. He recalls finding the only treadmill in a campaign town in the back of a hair salon.
Three things people should know about Harris. The woman in the soft pink jacket with the infectious smile tore Attorney General William Barr apart during a senate hearing — and enjoyed the game.
She is incredibly successful rising to the position of California’s attorney general before becoming one of its two senators. The state has the fifth-largest economy in the world and a population comparable to Canada, according to The Mises.
Unlike most politicians, Harris laughs. It feels good to have a happy person so confident in herself, so very strong as a vice president and next in line as the first woman president. She started off the ad telling President Obama to talk about “Joe:”
‘So tell me about Joe.’
People watch Obama in action and remember how respectfully and with quiet dignity a president should take his or her job. They recall how much they miss eight years of his presidency. Harris said:
‘So tell me about Joe and your relationship with Joe, and what do I need to know? Like what’s the thing about the ice cream. He loves ice cream. Tell me about that.’
What a perfect venue for two people who respect this year’s Democratic candidate. Obama says:
‘Well, listen, ice cream is big. Pasta with red sauce. He can go deep on that. He really does like those aviator glasses, he knows he looks good in ‘em.’
Yes, Biden did a cameo appearance on Veep when he was vice president. That image of him in a screaming yellow sports car wearing those cool sunglasses is indelible. Obama continues:
‘But the main thing to know about Joe is that Joe has never lost his sense of why we do this, and we do it because of you know for him, memories of his family back in Scranton and then the people of Delaware that he represented, the folks on the Amtrak train he met each and every day…His focus is going to be how’s that going to help those people who sent him there.’
Harris responded in a way that was comfortable, respectful, and in a way that helps people see Biden through the eyes of these two powerful people. She responded:
‘I love that about him, too. You know folks want to be seen and Joe sees people through those aviator glasses and without them. He really does see people. It’s a very special thing about him.’
At the end of the video, Harris remains courteous and wishes the last first lady Michelle Obama her best. Then, the 44th president said:
‘I’m going to be doing everything I can and Michelle will be, too, to make sure that we have a good Election Day.’
Twitter world went nuts over this powerful ad. Take a look at what they had to say about it below:
