Trump 2020 Campaign Ad Slams “Disgraceful” Dems For Failing To Applaud Their Glorious Leader During SOTU

The Washington Examiner reports:

The Trump campaign released an ad today featuring Democrats’ “disgraceful” reaction to his State of the Union address Jan. 30.

The advertisement from Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. highlighted moments from the speech when Trump touted accomplishments of his administration, all the while Democrat lawmakers refrained from clapping, showing any sort of positive reaction, and remained seated.

“President Donald Trump asked Democrats to join him in standing up for America,” the ad reads. “Instead, they just sat there … and sat there … and sat there.” “Disrespecting our people. Disrespecting out country. It’s disgraceful,” the ad concluded of the Democrats’ reaction.

  • M Jackson

    “YOU LIE!”

  • Butch

    Time for the Democrats to put together a reel of GOP reactions to Obama’s speeches. “You lie” would be a nice way to start.

    • Ron

      Time for someone to do a split screen video comparing tRump with various dictators throughout history. Highlight how he has been using their playbook.

      • SFBruce

        Pretty much every time Donnie opens his mouth, he gives the Dems a political ad. The real disgrace is Donnie is unveiling a 2020 ad, in February of 2018.

        • Nowhereman

          When in reality his 2020 campaign fund is to pay his legal bills from the 2016 election scam. I don’t think that anybody but the stupidest of the deplorables believe that Two Scoops is actually going to run.

          • BlueberriesForMe

            I wish I could agree with you but I have the feeling we’re going to be stuck with Drumpf for quite some time. What he really loves is attention and what better way to keep getting attention then to run for office yet again? My only hope is that something happens to him healthwise (e.g. has a stroke or is incapacitated in some other way) so he’ll have to “resign”. Granted, Mike Pence is just as awful in his own way.

          • Nowhereman

            I hope that what happens to him is that he gets popped on state charges of money laundering and fraud. No pardon. After he’s in imprisoned, may he live long enough to serve out his sentence.

    • Steverino

      And cash in on the “Deplorables” meme by proudly wearing “Disgraceful” as a Dem meme.

    • teedofftaxpayer

      I was going to make the same comment. I’ve been posting similar on all sites.

  • MikeBx2

    Playing to idiot, clueless Trump supporters who have never watched a SOTU speech in their entire pathetic lives.

    • MikeBx2

      They didn’t watch this one either.

      • LeeCMH

        The tRumpers get their cliff notes from their hateful pundits and hateful Christian preachers.

    • Librarykid

      They don’t even know what the acronym means. They are thinking it’s a misspelling of STFU, which he should.

  • bkmn

    • LeeCMH

      Obama handled the “you lie” with poise and decorum. Ryan with eyes closed — “Jeeeeeesus.”

    • Uncle Mark

      The irony here is that in this instance a real traitor & future Russian colluder is sitting and not clapping

    • Droz

      How come Ryan gets a giant silver drink coaster while Joe makes do with a napkin?

      • perversatile

        It probably has something to do with penis size.

    It disrespect Dear Leader if the opposition doesn’t give standing ovations?!

    Not in a democracy asshole.

  • crewman

    Trump is likely to be viewed as the worst President of the United States far into the future. It’s hard to think there would be anyone worse. The country would end if there were.

    • Mark

      …and we could well be on the way to that right now if people don’t stand up and be counted.

    • Silver Badger

      Assuming of course that there is a future beyond the FLASH.

      • Christopher

        At this point he could be the last POTUS.

        This country could rip itself apart trying to recover from this colossal fuckup that is Trump.

  • LeeCMH

    The hateful right-wing firing-up the outrage machine.

    Disrespect? “You lie”!

  • Boreal

    5 deferment draft dodger upset that others won’t clap for his fragile ego.

    • Chucktech

      Tammy Duckworth: “Cadet Bone Spurs” giggle, giggle.

      • Nowhereman

        I really like her a lot. I hope that Cadet Bone Spurs sticks to him forever.

    • Ranger One

      And he is such a little baby! What a brat.

  • kcken
    • Steverino

      And those two sneering bookends…

      • Librarykid

        The one on the left is smirking.

  • pj

    nobody told don they wouldnt stand. his world is furnished with chump worshipers.

  • Matt

    Well, he certainly has first-person experience on being disgraceful.

  • shellback

    Mr. Mueller, it is time to take out the trash – yesterday.

    • Chucktech

      The abject horror of “Trump 2020” demands it.

      • LeeCMH

        I am afraid tRump will stop global warming with his nuclear annihilation and we’ll be well on our way to a nuclear winter… Those few remaining, slowly dying of radiation poisoning, disease and starvation.

    • Uncle Mark

      Please take out the trash; the stench is overwhelming

  • Gay Fordham Prep Grad

    I wish I could be happier about this ad, I mean it offers just so much to run with; intercut with snippets of Kim Jong Un’s adoring fans, and Supreme Soviet’s wild applause for Stalin (…and others I can think of but don’t want to go THERE due to Godwin’s Law)…but I am becoming more and more fearful the Dems are going to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory…AGAIN!

  • fuow

    It will work. Before anyone bothers dragging out the beating dead horses to death meme, take a look at where we’re standing in the polling right now. We’re falling behind. Check out the new registrations of Democrats. We’re falling behind.
    Turns out that those of us who said ‘fight’ not ‘play nice’ we’re right.

    • Butch

      Did you see the result from Missouri last night, and the previous results from places like Virginia? Some tightening of the generic ballot is to be expected, but individual Democrats are also vastly out-raising their GOP counterparts. I’m not buying into the all is lost, we’re doomed stuff any more.

      • Chucktech

        One of those races in MO had Dems losing by not as much. Hardly fills me with enthusiasm, but I’ll remain cautiously optimistic.

      • fuow

        I’m not dooming and glooming – I’m pointing out that we are making the same, exact mistake as we did in 2010, 2014 and 2016.

  • MikeBx2
    • Chucktech

      I still find that truly astonishing. Donald Trump telegraphed exactly who and what he was for a year and a half before the election. Absolutely deplorable.

      • 🐾vorpal🐾

        People loved it because they wanted to get their deplorable on, and having a president who was shamelessly a hateful liar meant that they could follow suit without societal consequences.

        • David Walker

          Having a fap-inspiring wife didn’t hurt, either.

        • JCF

          “People loved it because…”

          Yes…but well LESS THAN HALF the people (and that’s w/ Putin, Comey Letter, and Rethug voter suppression).


      • The_Wretched

        It’s an act.
        It’s refreshing
        he’ll pivot
        can’t argue with his business success.

        • Chucktech

          Stoopid people:
          It’s not.
          It wasn’t
          He didn’t
          And you sure as fuck CAN argue with his so-called business success.

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen

      Maybe he can wear that Purple Heart he got off the veteran. Pos

        The Russian flag is a nice touch. I like the little red MAGA hats floating in the water, too.

        • bzrd

          be nice to see an orange head bobbing about

          • Nowhereman

            I agree. with or without MAGA hat.

        • Librarykid

          and, no lifeboats, again going against regulations.

          • Nowhereman

            Good catch! We don’t need no damn regulations interfering with their gross profits! MAGA!

      • David L. Caster

        A failboat.

  • Chucktech

    Democrats “stood up for America” by remaining seated.

    Slightly O/T, but now we know why he does the comb-over. I’ll bet he’s cursing the shellac for not holding things in place.

  • TexasBoy

    Well, they should have stood up…and turned their backs to him.

    • Chucktech

      Well, they should have stood up…and walked the fuck out.

    • William

      A mass Congressional mooning would make for an interesting story.

  • JWC

    Donny has moved on in his mental illness He shuns or belittles receptions where he is not projected in the best light Now he is demanding adoration and adulation from the Home crowd Even tho his “parade plans were hatch back in Jan I think they were introduced yesterday in an attempt to eclipse the successes of Elon

  • Rebecca Gardner
    • kaydenpat

      Good for her!! To be honest, I wouldn’t subject myself to being on Fox News since it’s a propaganda network for Republicans. But good for the Democrats and Liberals who go on and punch back.

    • billbear1961

      I stole this and posted it on Political Wire, Max!

  • kaydenpat

    Really? So was it disgraceful when that idiot called President Obama a liar in 2010?

    Democrats should have skipped SOTU altogether. It was disgraceful that they attended and thus treated Trump as if he was a normal President. He is not.

  • ceeenbee
  • TexasBoy
  • tim870

    The stupid fuck has been campaigning for re-election since he stole the last election. Republicans do not care about running the country, they just don’t want anyone else to do it.

  • Max_1
    • GanymedeRenard

      They look way too big in that jar, I think.

  • Uncle Mark

    The Dems should display a group of clapping seals with a voice-over saying “This is what Trump expects from loyal Americans. He has turned DC into a circus act, and we REFUSE to be a part of it and mindlessly clap for a clown that undermines any of our institutions that don’t perform as he wishes. We represent the will & best interests of the American people, not an orange-painted demagogue.”

    • Talisman

      A commercial with shots of the Repuglicants during each of Obama’s SOTU addresses, with a final shot of dumpster’s, with his own words superimposed.

  • PepeSF

    Lawyers, finance peeps, a question: Is it odd that a corporation paid for this ad, rather than a PAC or whatnot? I don’t recall ever seeing a “This ad was paid for by…” ending with an “Inc.” I’m curious.

    • Joe in PA

      Good catch.

    • Max_1

      Citizens United…
      … It could be a Russian Inc. and it’ll be called FREE SPEECH.

    • The_Wretched

      The who is not odd. The timing is odd.

      “Donald J. Trump for president, inc.” is the name of Donny the Unfit’s official presidential campaign committee. It has a third of a billion dollars in assets. It’s not like a company that sell products for profit doing the ad. FEC financial disclosures here: (not that they aren’t cooked)

    • SFBruce

      However, it’s organized, they’re happy to take your money. You can even make it a recurring monthly amount. So much for that “I’m rich, so I won’t have to raise money for campaigns.”

  • SoCalVet

    Yes, it is disgraceful. I think the overriding message from that visual is that Trump is the ‘it’ and ‘it’ is disgraceful.

  • billbear1961

    Says a junta that puts the interests of a murderous regime in the Kremlin over those of their own country.

  • bobbyjoe

    Another thing that’s disgraceful is focusing on your presidential campaign when you’ve barely been in office for a year, mostly sitting on your fat ass and watching “Fox and Friends.”

    • Gil

      Unfair….He’s gotten exercise by leaving and ” playing golf “

  • Friday

    Err, no, the real disgrace is a Republican party propping up this disgrace of a “President.”

  • Gregory In Seattle

    Democrats should respond with a clip of the many, MANY times Republicans did worse during Obama’s speeches.

    Although that would have to be an hour-long documentary and not just a 30-second sound bite.

  • Richard

    Loyalty oaths, military parades in the streets, opposition called rats and treasonous, one bullshit lie after the other, welcome to the fascist dictatorship. The next thing we’ll see will be loud speakers on every street corner extolling the virtues of the corrupt regime and the Dear Leader. 62,979,879 (NOT a majority)
    American voters were conned in November 2016, and now thanks to them our Democracy is being destroyed. If the Russians interfere in the 2018 elections, which they will, after being so successful the last time, we will end up mirroring a Putin dictatorship and we can kiss Democracy and Freedom good bye.

    • The_Wretched

      Modestly ot – yesterday’s press conference was an excuse for SHS to say the words “Democrats” and “Lazy” over and over. I’m sure that’s due to trying to FUD on Donny the Unfit’s “LAZY” for spending so much time golfing.

  • HZ81

    God, it’s almost like the sitting POTUS has never watched a single fucking SOTU speech in his life.

  • ETownCanuck
  • Nowhereman

    I hope the democrats plan to show examples of the respect that republicans showed to Obama in his eight State of the Union speeches. Shame on them. Liars, all.

    And yet still, he remains in office. In another time in America, he would have already been taken out of the WH and…..

    I’ll let you all fill in what you think is appropriate.

      They don’t have a woodshed behind the WH these days.

  • Robert Adams

    Well, they didn’t take a knee.

    Because the Republicans gave rousing rounds of applause at all of Obama’s SOTU addresses. I mean that applause was deafening.

  • GanymedeRenard

    For the umpteenth time, POTUS =/= Nation. When will these people fucking understand this isn’t Louis XIV’s monarchy, where “l’État, c’est lui“?
