Donald Trump has a lot in common with one of Walt Disney’s feature-length animation movies — and a mouse. In Fantasia, Mickey Mouse played the part of the sorcerer’s apprentice. He decided he would try out some magic, but it was before he was really capable, you know, the apprentice and all that. Then, the situation starts flying apart, out of control.
The brilliant Republican and former Republican minds behind The Lincoln Project put together another ad, FOX is Trump TV. It starts out innocently enough with the hosts on the FOX network pandering to the president. Lou Dobbs says that he is “one of the most loved and respected.”
We start to notice that none of the phrases are complete. They jump around, much like the president’s tweets.
Dobbs goes on tossing out phrases such as “your ability,” “your successes,” “the historical president of our period.” The music under the video is Leopold Stokowski’s Sorcerer’s Apprentice. As the music picks up speed, becoming ever more panicky, so does The Lincoln Project’s ad keep pace.
Someone says about Trump “He loves Meatloaf!” Another person calls him “an apex predator:”
‘He’s the lion king!’
Sean Hannity’s enlarged face claims:
‘The president has never misled or distorted.’
As the music becomes more beserk, Alex Jones bellows:
‘Destroy the child…Evil…Demons…You Satanist!’
Other voices chime in each a little more chopped, more agitated:
‘Trump is the body…victim of crooked cops…Trump is the bodyguard of western civilization.’
Sean Hannity insists without a point of reference:
‘It’s not the same thing that happened to George Floyd. Victim of crooked cops.’
Tucker Carlson climbs aboard:
‘Our race is superior…I love women but they’re extremely primitive, they’re basic, they’re not that hard to understand…’
The scene of angry young white nationalist men carrying torches in the Charleston, South Carolina summer night shouting:
‘Jews will not replace us! Jews will not replace us! Jews will not replace us!’
The music reaches a crescendo, and Carlson said:
‘That was untrue.’
