Trump's Media Campaigns Stumble Again: Russian Troops and White Supremacists Tweets

As politics go and the General Elections loom for this coming fall, recall this: what you see on the campaign trail, goes to the White House with a win.

As reality socks-in to your grey matter, know that Donald Trump's circus has yet again used stock footage for producing ads and campaign images from stock footage of foreign troops.  
How hard is it to Google US troops, officers and generals and use stock photos of our troops and military heroes?


Donald Trump pulls veterans ad after using footage of Russian soldiers

Donald Trump quickly pulled a new veteran-focused campaign spot after commenters pointed out that the footage included Russian veterans, not American. 
"Our great veterans are being treated terribly," Trump says in the commercial. "The corruption in the Veteran's administration, the incompetence is beyond. We will stop that." 
The ad then cuts from Trump sitting at his desk to footage of faceless decorated veterans ... who happen to be Russian.

The stock footage of Russian soldiers (see above) has since been changed to a still picture of Trump touching the face of what appears to be an American veteran with a prosthetic arm.
This isn't the first time the GOP frontrunner has made this snafu. In July, Trump's campaign produced a promotional image showing soldiers wearing German World War II uniforms instead of American ones. 
And earlier this year, Trump's debut TV spot about Mexican illegal immigration came fire after it was discovered the footage featured immigrants crossing into Morocco, not Mexico. 
Watch the original ad below.

Whoever Trumps employs as his media "guru" should come under review for "You're Fired." 

If you need another example of Trumpism and the need for a much more effective media mind, check out the following piece from Mediaite.

Trump's growing appeal to White supremacists.


Donald Trump Is Just Straight Up Retweeting White Supremacists Now

Donald Trump wanted to take a jab at Jeb Bush Friday morning, and decided the best way to do so was to retweet a guy with the username “White Genocide.” (UPDATE –– the Twitter user has since taken down the tweet. We have preserved it below.)

Needless to say, @WhiteGenocideTM’s name isn’t ironic: he’s a literal Neo-Nazi who regularly tweets racial slurs. A link on his profile takes you to “The Greatest Story Never Told,” a movie declaring Adolf Hitler the savior of humanity.

#Mudsharks: Who will kill you first? Is it – A) your nigger husband? Or B) your half-nigger kid?

Another of his other “humorous” creations depicts Trump wearing a Nazi uniform forcing Jewish Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders into a gas chamber.

Contrary to Rick Wilson, however, we could find no evidence that he has an affinity for anime porn.>>Follow Alex Griswold (@HashtagGriswold) on Twitter
