A group of anti-Trump Republicans dedicated to defeating President Donald Trump in the 2020 election has released the first of a series of 30-second campaign ads aimed directly at the president’t three eldest children, accusing them of being “grifters” who have made a fortune as a result of their father being in office.
The Lincoln Project posted the latest of its ads on YouTube Friday morning, according to HuffPost:
“A voiceover pretending to be Ivanka Trump explains why ‘daddy being president is the best thing ever’ in the first episode of the group’s ‘Grifters’ series, released Friday.
“Fake Ivanka explains how the Trump family has financially benefited from being in office while news stories appear in the theme.
“’Oh, Daddy, you’re so good to us,’ she concludes the clip, which the group said will air on CNN, MSNBC and Trump’s favorite, Fox News, from Friday.”
Lincoln Project co-founder Jennifer Horn said in a press release that the Trump children have “established a record of the worst kind of grifting” as the ads demonstrate. And she added:
“While their father has held the office of President, Ivanka, Donald Jr., and Eric Trump and Jared Kushner have run the family business like a mob enterprise, and it’s time someone held them accountable. The Lincoln Project will continue to do so as long as they continue to abuse the office of the Presidency for their personal financial gain.”
Just last week, we got more proof that what Horn and the Lincoln Project are alleging is indeed true, with the New York Times reporting that Brad Pascale, who serves as the campaign manager for the 2020 Trump reelection effort was steering money to Eric Trump’s wife and the girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr.:
“According to two people with knowledge of the matter, Parscale Strategy has also been used to make payments out of public view to Lara Trump, the wife of the president’s son Eric, and Kimberly Guilfoyle, the girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr., who have been surrogates on the stump and also taken on broader advisory roles. Their presence makes for an odd dynamic between a campaign manager and a candidate’s family.
“During a campaign appearance last summer in Orlando, Ms. Guilfoyle confronted Mr. Parscale: Why were her checks always late? Two people who witnessed the encounter said a contrite Mr. Parscale promised that the problem would be sorted out promptly by his wife, Candice Parscale, who handles the books on many of his ventures.”
Grifters. Every last one of them.
