The ad attacks special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and generally swipes at the investigation into the “Trump campaign’s possible cooperation with Russian interference in the 2016 election.”
Nut-job conservative talker Tomi Lahren is featured in the ad, called “Witch Hunt,” as she channel’s her inner Trump using the kind of language we have come to expect.
“Only in Washington could a rigged game like this be called independent,” Lahren says, using air quotes in the ad to emphasize her point.
The argument the ad makes is based on ties Mueller’s team of lawyers has to Democrats “because some of the lawyers have given campaign contributions to the party.” And then there is the “relationship between fired FBI Director James B. Comey and Mueller, who was once his boss.”
It’s an idiotic attempt to smear a man no one believes can be touched. Then again, the game probably has more to do with making sure Mueller knows Trump has friends who will be watching. Big deal.
At what point does Trump’s attack on the inside Washington crowd, particularly America’s beloved law enforcement community, start to make Trump’s base nervous?
