Trump hates to be pushed out of the limelight, which Virginal gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin (R) should have known. It has been the strategy of his opponent Terry McAuliffe (D) to attach the Republican candidate to Donald Trump. But as his opponent relegates the ex-president to another state, The Lincoln Project’s “loser” ads finally gets under Trump’s skin. Take a look.
One of The Lincoln Project’s latest ads laid on the “loser” label thick. It claimed that Trump was not only a loser but that Youngkin banned him from Virginia. The makers of those powerful ads have been some of the finest and most creative minds of former Republicans. They are good, very good.
The Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson released a statement that read “Youngkin is begging the former president to stay away,” according to YouTube:
‘During the primary, and in certain parts of Virginia, Glenn Youngkin was as big a fan of Donald Trump as anyone, but now that it’s time to close the deal with Virginians, Youngkin is begging the former president to stay away. This dynamic is representative of today’s Republican Party: Court Trump and his base to win the primary and then run away from the MAGA world as fast as possible. Our message to Trump with this ad is simple: You’re being played.’
Trump responded via his spokesperson and former Republican National Committee spokesperson, Liz Harrington’s Twitter account. He had to do it that way, since he has been banned from Twitter, too. He called those who aired the ads “perverts” and “The fake news media:”
‘The Fake News media, together with some of the perverts doing ads ad nauseam on primarily Fox (Fox shouldn’t take those ads!), are trying to create an impression that Glenn Youngkin and I are at odds and don’t like each other. Importantly, this is not true. We get along very well together and strongly believe in many of the same policies. Especially when it comes to the important subject of education.’
Trump must like the word “pervert,” because he repeated himself in his statement:
“The reason the Fake News and perverts are working over time [sic] is to try and convince people that we do not like each other, and therefore, my great and unprecedented Make America Great Again base will not show up to vote. Also, I am not a believer in the integrity of Virginia’s elections, lots of bad things went on, and are going on. The way you beat it is to flood the system and get out and vote.’
Harrington tweeted, repeating Trump’s go-to word “perverts.” But this time, she said that it was the “perverts doing ads” aka The Lincoln Project’s people:
‘NEW! “The Fake News media, together with some of the perverts doing ads ad nauseam on primarily Fox (Fox shouldn’t take those ads!), are trying to create an impression that Glenn Youngkin and I are at odds and don’t like each other. Importantly, this is not true…”‘
