Trump threatens to sue TV stations airing ad where he calls coronavirus a ‘hoax’

Recommended Posts

President Donald Trump‘s reelection team sent cease-and-desist letters to television stations, threatening legal action if they continue to air an ad created by a liberal Super PAC that says Trump called the coronavirus a “hoax.”

 

Alex Cannon, a special counsel for Trump’s reelection team, sent a letter on Wednesday to television stations alleging that the ad—created by the Priorities USA Action Fund—is “patently false, misleading, and deceptive.”

 

The ad shows a graph of coronavirus cases in the United States slowly rising in the background over clips of comments Trump made in the past about the virus.

 

The ad has become quite popular, with more than 47,000 people retweeting it on Twitter and nearly 160,000 views on YouTube. The ad is running in Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, according to the Hill.

 

One snippet in particular—where the ad plays Trump saying “this is their new hoax”—seems to be the sticking point for Cannon and the Trump team. The ad pieces together parts of what Trump has said in the past to make it seem he is saying the coronavirus is a “hoax.”

 

An ad by former Vice President Joe Biden also did something similar, according to the Washington Post.

 

“As fully set forth in the enclosed facts sheet, and President Trump’s full quote below, the facts show beyond reasonable doubt that he was talking about the Democrat’s politicization of the outbreak when he used the word ‘hoax,'” the letter reads.

The tin-foilers will be all over this.

 

They will be saying Trump accidently let it slip that it was all a big hoax, before the dark suit guys could give him the memo.

Shouldn't that read an ad by Trump about Joe Biden, did something similar?

 

I vaguely recall something like that? Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong
