    Democratic group defies Trump, ramps up ad blasting coronavirus response

    By Jeff Mason and Amanda Becker
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic super PAC Priorities USA said on Thursday it planned to expand its use of an advertisement critical of President Donald Trump's response to the coronavirus pandemic despite the Trump re-election campaign's efforts to stop it.
    Trump's campaign on Wednesday said it had sent cease-and-desist letters to local television stations that were running the ad in Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin - all expected to be swing states critical in November's presidential election - because of what it considers a false assertion that Trump referred to the virus as a hoax.
    It threatened litigation if stations refused to pull the ad.
    The ad plays verbatim quotes from the president, including "We have it totally under control," and "One day it's like a miracle, it will disappear" as a graph shows the rising number of U.S. infection cases. In the opening, the ad includes his quote that "this is their new hoax."
    Trump's re-election campaign said that quote was referring to "Democrat criticisms and politicization of the federal response to the public health crisis" and demanded the ad be taken down for falsely asserting he used the term to describe the coronavirus.
    Priorities USA said the ad was still running in Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and would be expanded into Arizona over the next few weeks.
    "The fact that Trump is going to such great lengths to keep the American people from hearing his own words adds to the urgency of communicating them far and wide," the group's chairman Guy Cecil said in a statement.
    "Trump doesn't want voters to know the truth. We will not be intimidated. We'll keep telling the truth and holding Donald Trump accountable."
    The president has faced criticism for initially playing down the seriousness of the coronavirus.
    In recent days he has again compared the epidemic to the seasonal flu and questioned the necessity of tough quarantine measures to stop its spread by saying such drastic efforts were not taken in response to car crashes or flu outbreaks.
    The president, whose own coronavirus task force earlier this month recommended people avoid gathering in groups of more than 10 and eschew eating in restaurants for a 15-day period in order to blunt the virus's spread, has said he wants to open the U.S. economy for business again by Easter on April 12.
    He said he would listen to advice from public health professionals before making a decision.

    cool. Mini Mike blew about half a billion on TV ads that didn't make a bit of difference so glad to see Priorities USA are set to do the same thing. Hopefully Trump and the GOP then sue the fuck out of them and burn away all that billionaire Dem money that's funding the super PAC

    Trump's daily briefings are getting Monday Night Football type of ratings so you'll have to burn through a fuck load of money with these ads to make a dent. Nothing can separate a nutty leftist with their money quicker than a bad case of TDS
    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that

    They're just frustrated. They keep beating their heads against a wall and Trumps numbers keep going up.

    Notice how every tweet like this comes from a Democrat. Trump would never tweet something that would encourage endangering the entire country, especially during a pandemic. It doesn't even matter if this was faked or not, just the fact that he's a Democrat and a Liberal proves he's wrong and trying to destroy America.

    What does any of that have to do with the fact that the commercial shown above rams a white hot poker up Twittler's ass, schmuck?
