With the 2020 election just 164 days away, the campaign's of the presumptive nominees are ramping up.
That includes ads highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of the candidates according to the respective campaigns.
And according to the Biden camp, President Donald Trump's pandemic response does not belong in the strength column.
A new ad makes that point crystal clear.
Deer In The Headlights | Joe Biden For President youtu.be
The ad was launched on digital media platforms Friday and is already drawing buzz.
However unlike Trump's attack ads on Biden—that failed in fact checks from numerous organizations—the primary buzz is about the brutal honesty of the Biden ad.
The ad's opening states:
"When coronavirus came? Trump froze like a deer in the headlights."
"...too scared to act, too panicked to tell the truth, too weak to lead."
Amidst a laundry list of errors and missteps taken by the Trump administration, the ad adds:
"[P]anicked at the thought of what a stock market collapse could mean to his re-election, he failed to act and the virus got out of control and shut down the nation and crushed the economy."
Trump is also characterized as:
- paralyzed by fear
Reaction to the ad online was swift.
With the 2020 presidential election approaching quickly, people are weighing their options more carefully.
