Donald Trump’s ads for his reelection are always bizarre, from using fake stock photos to use to portray the president’s supporters as everyday Americans, to using Nazi imagery — the latter of which was eventually taken down by Facebook. Trump excels at projection, as we’ve noted many times here at Political Tribune. Just about everything he accuses an opponent of, Trump is guilty of that same thing. Trump did this with his former opponent Hillary Clinton, and he’s doing that with Democratic nominee Joe Biden, too.
The United States under Trump’s presidency has become a shithole country with cities in disarray over a number of national crises that the former reality show star created or exacerbated. In this case, Trump has the former vice president’s face plastered across an image with the words, “You won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America.” But, this is Trump’s America, and Biden isn’t the president — yet.

Twitter users pounced.
Until I looked closely I thought it was Trump’s face superimposed over the image.
Because that’s who we associate these images with. pic.twitter.com/HN6Pvn0pAo

He misunderstands why he’s down in the polls. Early on during Covid, experts warned of possible unrest , especially if the economy fell apart. I’m sure he didn’t read that briefing. How could we have put an uneducated fool to run this country. It’s almost unforgivable.

My 17 y/o daughter immediately pointed out the first time she saw one of his commercials, “This is Trump’s America. He is the president.”.

Trump’s Art of War:
First offensive move is projection.

Donald is good at gaslighting. It’s a narcissistic trait, after all. Americans were fooled once, and after shit got real with the national crises, the voters have woken up from the fog.
