Erick Erickson: This Anti-Trump Ad Shows How He’s Going To Cost The GOP The Senate [VIDEO]

Far-right commentator Erick Erickson writes: “This is brutal. This is exactly what you can expect throughout the country in the general election. This is the ad for the Democratic challenger in Arkansas and provides a helpful roadmap to other Democrats on how they are going to take back the Senate.”

  • NancyP

    One can’t underestimate the manners and dignity of the American public.

  • bkmn

    Poor whiner.

  • Sam_Handwich

    excellent ad

  • AtticusP

    Looks like he’s got the salute down. I wonder how he looks dressed in brown?

    • oikos

      Frumpy and fat.

      • AtticusP

        I was thinking obese UPS driver, myselfโ€ฆ

        • oikos

          Eeewwww.

          • AtticusP

            Exactly.

  • Blake Jordan

    The rethuglican party in general will help turn the senate blue this November, but hopefully drumpf and cruz push it even further!!

    • kaydenpat

      Flipping the House would be a nice touch.

      • Robincho

        As opposed to flipping it off, which is pretty much all that’s happening these days…

  • Michael Smith

    Expect dozens of ads just like this one if Trump is the nominee.

    • ElenorRigby

      Hillary Clinton has, according to my inside source, got about 30 ads all ready to go along with about 50 scandals ready to “leak.” She’s not where she is by being passive and rolling with the punches, She’s all ready to steam roll him and anyone who comes within a mile of her. it’s why she’s going to be such an effective president.

      • Gene

        but, elenor…she is a wall street shrew about to be indicted on 1001 federal charges and she wet her bed till she was 3. She CAN’T win!
        (sorry…just got called an unamerican fascist far right republican pig on another site because I had committed the unholy sin of supporting this “obvious loser”, by a person who said they will vote for THIS failed comb over instead of her!!! .its starting to rankle. needed to vent..mea culpa. vent over now)

        • ElenorRigby

          haha… oh man… I had a few acquaintances on Facebook who kept insisting that “She’s under FBI investigation and the charges are coming any day now… she’ll be in jail by November.” When I told them “no, that’s not the case” and gave them links to show this…. no, they just kept insisting “Bernie is the only politician in history who wasn’t corrupt you know…” and when I pointed out that no… he voted for things that greatly benefited his own wife…. they were back to emails and Benghazi.

          the Bernie Boobs are now just as bad as the most extreme tea baggers. Idiots, most of them.

          • Gene

            agreed. NOT your run of the mill Sanders supporters of course…but that small number of people who are..well…close to unhinged. I dont get it. When she was losing to Obama, I switched to Obama. If Sanders had won the nom, I would have voted for him. Anyone who can listen to that and say “I still just can’t vote for her…I must vote my conscience” (in a veronica lake voice…even if male) needs to wake up and smell the threat of fascism, never mind the damn coffee!

          • B Snow

            This will probably sound alarmist, but after reading about the GOP-led bills to cut the number of college-student voters (or penalize their parents for their college kids registering to vote in a different district/state), I feel like young voters need to vote Democrat this November, or it may be the last time they get to vote at all for a long time. All it will take is a Republican president nominating (and getting, thanks to a GOP House and Senate) a couple of Supreme Court judges who will find that those “voter fraud” laws are totes constitutional.

          • Cuberly

            The fact they’re adopting RWNJ talking-points is unforgiveable. It shows their less than democratic (party) tendencies

          • My brother (and i do love him dearly…he and his family are 100% supportive of my being gay) has a serious hard-on for Sanders. Just this morning he had mentioned that Clinton would probably be indicted very soon, and when that happens, Sanders will be the nominee. Meh, doubtful, but we’ll see. At least he and his wife *will* vote blue…I know that for sure.

      • Michael Smith

        Here’s hoping for a dozen October surprises then.

        • ElenorRigby

          October? They’re going to start in June. Why do you think she’s not going after him now? She wants him to be the nominee. The day he gets it… boom… done. Over. He’ll be dealing with a new scandal every day.

          • Michael Smith

            I am concerned that the American public has the attention span of a goldfish, so it would be wise to save something back.

          • ScottinPhilly

            I hear you and I have seen political sites like 536 indicate that people tend to tune out a bit on politics during the summer. My guess is that there are so many scandals that these can be spread out. I agree though that the REALLY good stuff should be saved for September/early October.

          • Tulle

            Do you really think it is that good?

          • ScottinPhilly

            I will be curious to see the proportion of scandals that are already known versus new information for those who are already paying attention. I have a feeling there are many unknown scandals because Trump doesn’t seem to really try to hide these kinds of things and I think he is proud of them.

          • Rambie

            June is too early, the GOP’ers will have time to come up with excuses by then. But I guess if it’s a slow drip of “surprise” after “surprise” until November it could work too.

      • Cuberly

        Not to be that guy but, if that where the case what was preventing the GOP and their anti-Trump PACs from taking this on. I mean, the talibanjelicals are somewhat divided on him but overall their man is Cruz. They would have jumped at this sort of Trump bashing.

        • ElenorRigby

          from what I understand a lot of it implicates a lot of high-placed Republicans.

          • Cuberly

            I could see that.

            Have heard rumblings from some of my relatives that they’ve had it. One even stated outright she’s voting for Hillz, amazing since she was a Benghazi conspiracy nut. But yeah, I have a feeling the # of repubs bailing on voting for any of the above will gain momentum. I guess even some of the powers that be would prefer to flush this election and try again in 2020.

      • Herald

        That is what is needed in dealing with the Repubs in DC and around the country.

      • DesertSun59

        Not.

        She will be fighting the GOP for her ENTIRE presidency. That is a fact. There will be nearly no room for her to do anything other than fight them off. It will be FAR worse than with Obama in charge. At least all they did was NOTHING since he’s been POTUS. With her in charge they will actively seek every opportunity to impeach her.

        • ElenorRigby

          you know, I’m not sure that’s the case. She’s got enough on them all that she’ll threaten and blackmail them all.

        • Phillip in L.A.

          “all they did was NOTHING since he’s been POTUS”

          You mean except: spreading defamatory and racist “stories” about him; refusing to hold confirmation vote on duly-nominated Supreme Court justice; voting to repeal Affordable Care Act; & c., & c., & c.

        • Rillion

          And if Bernie is President they would just roll over and pass all of his proposals?

  • Blake Jordan

    How many senators does it take to confirm a new justice for the SCOTUS?

    • Michael Smith

      51 unless there is a filibuster. 60 to end a filibuster.

      • Blake Jordan

        Is there a limit to how many candidates for the SCOTUS justice position that the senate can reject, or could it in theory go on forever?

        • Sam_Handwich

          it could go on forever…..but republicans don’t plan on ‘rejecting” garland … they just plan on ignoring him

          • Blake Jordan

            My line of enquiry was more about Pres. H. Clinton, and her hopefully democratic majority senate…

            I know the garland situation is probably dead.

        • The_Wretched

          It’s an open question. It’s pretty much unpresidented to have the current level of obstructionism. There’s several novel ideas like having the president ‘deem the senate has waived it’s right to advise and consent’ by taking an unreasonable amount of time. The current court (4:4) would be the likely arbiter….

          It’s all a Constitutional mess.

        • Phillip in L.A.

          In theory, forever, Blake!

    • Sam_Handwich

      majority of those present for the vote

    • If there’s a straight up-or-down vote, it takes a simple majority — 51 of the 100 Senators — to confirm the new Justice.

      If there’s a filibuster, it takes 60 Senators to end the filibuster and proceed to a straight up-or-down vote.

      The last SCOTUS nominee to be blocked by a filibuster was in 1968. In that case, it was actually a sitting Associate Justice, Abe Fortas, being promoted to Chief Justice, who had an unusually tight relationship with the Johnson Administration. From the Senate’s website: “As a sitting justice, he regularly attended White House staff meetings; he briefed the president on secret Court deliberations; and, on behalf of the president, he pressured senators who opposed the war in Vietnam. When the Judiciary Committee revealed that Fortas received a privately funded stipend, equivalent to 40 percent of his Court salary, to teach an American University summer course, Dirksen and others withdrew their support. Although the committee recommended confirmation, floor consideration sparked a filibuster.”

      • Octavio

        I remember those days. It was all Walter Cronkite could do to prevent himself from constantly rolling his eyes when on the air. Fun times. Fun times.

      • Phillip in L.A.

        All true, RoyalScribe! Just wanted to add that after Justices Catron (1865) and Wayne (1867) died, Congress abolished their positions, to prevent their being filled by President Johnson.(*) A new position was created in 1869, which traditionally has been regarded as a re-creation of Wayne’s seat; Justice Field’s position was created during the Civil War, iirc

        (*) Prior to the 1830’s, there were only seven seats on the Court–and only six before 1806. Catron and McKinley filled the two new seats created in 1836-7.

      • Rillion

        Well technically 50 since one would assume the VP would break a tie in favor of confirming the President’s nomination…

  • Nic Peterson

    Eric Erickson plays a broken watch quite well. I wonder what else he will be right about today.

  • Bill

    The sad thing is that I know a lot of heterosexual men who are just like him.

    • Gustav2

      But there are more women than men, and higher percentage of women vote than the men.

  • Rex

    The people who will vote for Trump think just like he does. Unfortunately.

    • Ben in Oakland

      You lie!

      I mean, really? THINK?

      • Octavio

        (snicker)

    • VodkaAndPolitics

      Yes, but independents do not.

    • markg

      This morning on MSNBC Jacob Rascon was interviewing people waiting in line 7 hours before a Trump event in Indiana and the first guy waiting said.. I voted for Cruz in Ohio but only because Trump said that SC should take down the confederate flag so I had to vote for Cruz but everything else I can agree with Trump on .

  • AtticusP

    Great ad, but I’m wondering about the literacy rate in Arkansas. Perhaps a little voiceover would have been wise?

    • Philly Mike

      Sad but I agree with you.

      Yes, TV is an audiovisual medium.

    • Robert Adams

      I suspect the poorly educated wouldn’t change their mind or vote even with a voiceover.

    • Aaron Ray

      It probably would have helped you greatly, Atticus. Arkansans as a group have a long history of literary achievement. Save your snarkiness for Donald Trump.

    Eric Ericsson, friend of women:

    Erickson Compared First Night Of Democratic National Convention To The “Vagina Monologues.” Referring to the first night of the 2012 Democratic National Convention, during which first lady Michelle Obama and other women leaders appeared, Erickson tweeted, “First night of the Vagina Monologues in Charlotte going as expected”:

    Erickson Repeatedly Attacked Feminists As “Too Ugly To Get A Date” With “No Sense Of Humor.” On his Twitter account, Erickson has made numerous attacks on women. After an anti-abortion ad aired during the 2010 Super Bowl, Erickson tweeted, “that’s it?!?! That’s what the feminazis were enraged over? Seriously?!? Wow. That’s what being too ugly to get a date does to your brain.” Another tweet read, “Thus ends the credibility of all pro-abortion groups. Thanks Mrs. Tebow for that. Ugly feminists return to their kitchens.” The next day, Erickson wrote, “Turned on twitter today and there was a barrage of angry feminists upset with me telling them to get in the kitchen and learn to cook;” “Good thing I didn’t suggest the feminists … you know … shave. They’d be at my house trying a post-birth abortion on me.” Erickson also tweeted, “Feminists have no sense of humor, but clearly God did in creating feminists”:

    • Todd20036

      This makes Erick’s tweet about Trump all the more schadenfuerdelicous.

    • Octavio

      So, all indications point to Erickson having a micro penis. Got it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Sam_Handwich

    just a week or two ago, Erickson posted an article that he was in the hospital , gravely ill with blood clots in his lungs

    • delk

      heh, I was just checked for that this morning. Tests were negative.

      • Octavio

        Good for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • tcinsf

    Hell, I’m ready to write the check…..

  • Clungeflaps

    Well, since Trump is going to cost the Repubs the House and the Senate, I will really not feel bad at all about not voting for Hillary.

    • Gustav2

      The Senate yes, but the House is much tougher with the gerrymandering. Especially in states like mine, Ohio.

      • Gene

        I love the congressional map of Ohio
        it could truly be used as a Rorschach Test blot.

        • Gustav2

          And isn’t it amazing how Rep Steve Stivers’ position on gay rights suddenly got a bit more conservative when he got a smaller slice of a gayborhood.

        • Clungeflaps

          It’s a bit pathetic that a grown man replies with a .gif from a cartoon for 6 year olds, and then runs away, because he knows I’m right.

          • Tigernan Quinn

            Well, you would know from pathetic, I will give you that.

          • Gene

            1) it was oikos
            2) he did not run away anymore than a person with screen door to prevent annoying pests is “running away” from the great outdoors.
            3) “he knows I am right”…”and their coming to take me away! ha ha he he hoho! to the funny farm, where life is beautiful ALL the time…”. We hear the last one when you say your nonsense. Why are you trolling in here anyway? I mean, almost no one agrees with you, and most of the few who do have class and dont upvote you. Its kind of sad, feeling a need to express your anger at your guys losing, then acting childish about it in a very transparent need for attention, and obvious attempts at kicking over beehives trying to start fights. We have seen enough to know the REAL enemies (the rethuglicans) and know that any democrat is a better deal..and we know that we have a responsibiity, even if its just one vote, to vote in a way that supports the best candidate with a real chance of winning, because the rights, the hopes, even the lives, of other people will be affected by the outcome..and that that outweights any need to “vote my conscience”.

            Its called being grown ups.
            I hope you can join us in that status sometime.

            One kvetch I have about it, though: I still get email notifications from trolls I’ve blocked (I’ve got one who periodically trolls me personally. That is, I’m not responding to him, but he’ll say something nasty to me, out of the blue, just for his immature kicks. God, how the internet empowered these headcases!). Does anyone know what to do about this (other than, y’know, getting rid of all email notifications)?

    A filibuster-proof Democratic Senate majority would be nice, but I’m hoping this extends to the House as well.

    • Phillip in L.A.

      Of course, with 51 in the Senate, Dems could vote to change filibuster rules for Supreme Court justices–but that is doubtful and dubious

      Apparently it hasn’t, since Hillary just parrots the same things that Reagan did. And she claims that Nancy Reagan cured AIDS.

    Okay, but with the single note piano music? And the very old Howard Stern interviews? Meh.

  • Blake J Butler

    Poor Connor, a little too religious for my liking, and a bit moderate than i would like, but i sure as hell would love him as my senator over Boozman, or Cotton. Because he isn’t crazy enough for a majority of the state to elect him.

    Makes me wish Beebe was running for Senate against Boozman, because he was polling and winning against Boozman, and a southern democrat is better than anything that comes out of the Republican party anyday.

    Now back on topic, these ads need to run daily, he backtracks so much, people ned to see what this clown’s views really are.

    The irony is that the anti-Trump far right is writing the fall campaign ads the Democrats will use, and the anti-Hillary far left is writing the ads the Republicans will use.

        Then you never supported Bernie Sanders
        I know I used to be a huge fan of Hillary’s.
        That was until last July, when I rediscovered Bernie Sanders. I’d remembered him from an old 60 Minutes episode, from decades ago. I then went to C-Span on YouTube and watched all the old speeches of his I could find. I’d been one of those supporters of Hillary’s that never knew much about her or her record. Once I really looked into it. I felt like I’d been kicked in the stomach. I’ll never trust her again. I’ll write Bernie in, before I vote for her!
        What drove me over the edge is now, the Panama papers and the whole Hillary Victory Fund issue.

        He’s only the second greatest composer the world has known, second only to JS Bach!

          Hey, now, give Ludwig von Beethoven his due!

            He’s in the top 10!!

          I’m trying to figure out how I can get my Goldberg Variations to you. Any ideas?… ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • billbear1961

        But you’ve been able to hear some Telemann today, yes, Chuck?

        • Chucktech

          Yes, that played just fine. So odd…

          • billbear1961

            I’m glad you can hear at least some of the music I’m posting, Chuck!

          • Chucktech

            I hear most of it, Mr. Bear, and I enjoy it very much, thanks!

          • billbear1961

            You’re very welcome!

        Now, now, now, heimaey.

        This will be appropriate only if the GOP wins the election!

        • I think either HRC or Trump is a losing scenario for the American people. Trump is just a bit more sad.

          • Todd20036

            Lets come back to that after Madame President makes a SCOTUS nomination.

      • billbear1961
        • No, this feels less like dying.

          • billbear1961

            Oh, heimaey . . .

            People aren’t ready for democratic socialism, YET, not after DECADES of relentless right-wing propaganda.

            If the inroads Bernie has made among the young endure and result in a growing progressive movement government will soon be unable to ignore, this may well change.

            But it will take time.

            Elizabeth Warren is the kind of leader we will need.

          • Maybe you’re right – maybe just because I’m ready doesn’t mean America is. In the mean time though HRC is not a good look on the gays and they may regret this like they did supporting Reagan in 80.

          • billbear1961

            If she betrays the basic principles of progressivism–which is to say, the tenets of TRUE democracy–she will face a massive revolt, and will not be reelected.

          • billbear1961

            I’m glad you’re ready–VERY glad–but much work remains to be done to win over the majority.

            If Elizabeth Warren were running in Bernie’s place, I would be absolutely torn in two–because I think she is TERRIFIC!!

          • Phillip in L.A.

            I don’t recall any gays supporting Reagan in the ’80s, heimaey–at least none I knew. He was considered, at best, a fascist dictator

          • How soon we forget. Not 84 but in 80 he had a big gay following.

            Or like the anagram of his name, “Insane Anglo Warlord”!

          • You don’t know your past you don’t know your future. Reagan did a big bait and switch after supporting gay and lesbian teachers in the 70s in CA – he got a big backing of gay votes in the 1980 election, by 1984 that had changed dramatically.

          • JCF

            WHO supported Reagan in ’80? O_o

    Why would this cost the Republicans the senate? This appeals to the reality t.v. folks who have never voted before and will most certainly vote this time. Just stick the Duck Dynasty guy behind Trump in the next ad and, bingo…a winner. Of course the Democrats will do what we famously do…sit it out when it counts the most. Hello, President Trump. Good bye to our chances of a progressive Supreme Court.

    • Circ09

      We don’t sit out major election years. I’m not hearing from Democratic leaning sorts that they will sit out – quite the opposite this go around. Most I come across, even Bernie supporters, do realize the stakes. However, I do hear Republicans saying they don’t know if they will vote in the general.

      I don’t know if the Democrats have the will to take back the Senate. If we do win it back it will be purely down to Republican malfeasance instead of Democratic gumption. But I’m not worried about Clinton beating Trump.

  • AtticusP

    Trump supporters on vacation…

  • Gigi

    I hope you’re right Erick.

  • EdmondWherever

    “This is the ad for the Democratic challenger in Arkansas and provides a helpful roadmap to other Democrats on how they are going to take back the Senate.โ€

    • Phillip in L.A.

      Love me some Lana Kane, Edmond, thx!

  • HZ81

    This will end the GOP’s senate grip? Bababooey!!!

  • DesertSun59

    Sadly, this nation is far too stupid to turn the House blue.

    • bobbyjoe

      And far too gerrymandered.

  • JT
  • I have to say, that is a good ad.

  • kaydenpat

    Erickson has no qualms about supporting Cruz, who is as anti-women’s rights as Trump is sexist so meh.

  • Mike C

    You break, you bough it Erick.

  • KnownDonorDad

    At that rate, the GOP will rue the day they didn’t confirm Merrick Garland. Hello, Justice Cornel West!

  • What Erick “Erick” Erickson considers a bug and a terrible problem, we call it an overwhelmingly positive feature.

  • sfmike64

    Does anyone think that’s a good ad? I think it’s terrible. There are a million great ads to be written accusing Trump of misogyny, this is not one of them.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    Yes, this is brutal. Ads featuring Trump’s own words. How disgusting and despicable. /s
