'Bye Don Jr.': New Attack Ad Turns Trump Son's Words Against The President




 

A new attack ad from the progressive PAC MeidasTouch hits President Donald Trump close to home.

It takes the words of Donald Trump Jr. as he attacks former Vice President Joe Biden and turns them against the president:

In a statement released with the video, MeidasTouch said:

The video caused #ByeDonJr to trend on Twitter overnight, much like a previous video against Ivanka Trump ― a daughter of and adviser to the president ― caused #ByeIvanka to go viral.

MeidasTouch was founded by attorney Ben Meiselas, who represented former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in his settlement with the NFL, along with his two brothers. Previous ads from the group have hit Jared Kushner ― Ivanka Trump's husband ― and counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway, among others.

Court rulings this month have allowed officials in the battleground states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and North Carolina to count ballots that arrive after Nov. 3 as long as they were sent by Election Day.
