Trump Releases Repellent Campaign Ad Amidst Neo-Nazi Terrorist Attack

President Donald Trump couldn't be bothered to denounce white supremacists in the wake of the Charlottesville domestic terror attack. Instead, he congratulated himself in a pathetic press briefing and signed a bill for the cameras.

He also managed to find the time to approve a new campaign ad blaming the media and Democrats for his own failures. The new ad looks like a movie trailer and credits Trump with various successes he does not deserve credit for, like record low unemployment and a soaring stock market.

Perhaps most chilling is that the only Americans acknowledged are smiling white people.

"Let President Trump do his job!" the narrator demands. According to 538, the president's approval rating stood at 37.5 percent on Monday.

Watch the full ad below.
