The anti-Donald Trump group Lincoln Project hit pause on its attacks on the Trumpster for a moment to directly support former Vice President Joe Biden’s bid for the White House.
The new campaign spot, titled ‘Dad,’ shares the story of how 32-year-old Biden raised his two sons, Beau and Hunter, on his own after tragically losing his first wife and one-year-old daughter to a car accident in 1972.
“When the boys cried for their mother and sister, it was Joe who comforted them,” says the narration. “Parent-teacher conferences? Joe was there. When help was needed and report cards were read, Joe Biden was there. Because when Joe Biden makes a commitment, he always sees it through.”
“Americans will choose between two types of men this November. Joe Biden is a man of character, compassion, and decency. It’s a choice to vote for a man with that kind of character – or a man without one.”

Trump’s campaign manager is a felon. His deputy campaign manager is a felon. His national security advisor is a felon. His foreign policy advisor is a felon. His personal lawyer is a felon. His long time advisor is a felon. It’s not a campaign, it’s a criminal enterprise.
The latest campaign ad from the anti-Trump conservative group, The Lincoln Project, puts the focus on Donald Trump’s infamous insecurities believing a traitor is around every corner of the White House.
Titled ‘Whispers’, it’s pretty clear The Lincoln Project’s psychological warfare game is on point.
You could say this spot is aimed at an audience of one.
At Donald Trump’s woefully under-attended campaign rally last night in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the Trumpster spent a considerable amount of time explaining the recent #RampGate episode.
In case you missed it, after speaking at this year’s West Point Academy commencement ceremony, Trump slowly exited the stage via a ramp he called “very slippery” (no rain that day) and very steep.
The Lincoln Project, a group of anti-Trump conservatives (including White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s husband, George Conway), released their latest ad with their take on Trump’s protracted maneuvers on the now-infamous ramp.
Trump’s rally in Tulsa on the weekend of Juneteenth proves what we already knew: he’s the largest superspreader of division and hatred we’ve seen in generations.
The video contrasts past speeches by leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy to those of Gov. George Wallace and the current occupant of the Oval Office who calls white supremacists “very fine people,” tells the police to “dominate the streets” and “please, don’t be too nice.”
Narration: “It took almost four years for Trump to get the crowds he wanted. After years of Donald Trump’s divisiveness and discord, America is coming together. This year we have a choice to make… America or Trump. Imagine how big the crowds will be when he’s gone. A new day begins on November 3rd.”

• Out Music: Trey Pearson, who first found fame fronting the Christian rock band Everyday Sunday, channels LGBTQ Pride’s history of protest in his latest music video, “1984.” Pearson, who came out as gay four years ago, called the song “a love letter sent to us from the LGBT community of the ’80s” to inspire people in a time of crisis and uprising.
• Washington Post: Donald Trump’s former chief of staff John F. Kelly defended former defense secretary Jim Mattis on Thursday over Mattis’s criticism of the president’s handling of nationwide protests. Kelly also dismissed Trump’s assertion that the president fired the retired general in 2018. “The president did not fire him. He did not ask for his resignation. The president has clearly forgotten how it actually happened or is confused.”

• Lincoln Project: The conservative anti-Trump PAC drops this new campaign ad writing, “Trump is no longer hiding that he’s a brazen authoritarian, so desiring of control and power that he’s willing to turn our once peaceful cities into #warzones.
The Lincoln Project, a super PAC comprised of anti-Trump conservatives, has released some potent attack ads against the Donald in recent days and now they are going after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
The new ad focuses on the Kentucky Republican’s personal wealth and wonders aloud how #RichMitch became one of the wealthiest men in the Senate on a senator’s salary.
The spot also draws contrasts between his financial good fortune versus how his state has fared during his 35 years in Washington – ranked 40th in job opportunity, ranked 45th in education and 43rd in health care.
📺 After 35 years, Kentuckians are still waiting for the kinds of opportunities #RichMitch has worked so hard to give himself.
