GOP Anti-Trump Group Just Gave This Trump Ad a Savage New Makeover and Now It's a Perfect Ad for Biden
In the face of foreboding polls for November, President Donald Trump's campaign ramped up its attacks on Democratic nominee Joe Biden in a new ad on Monday called Cards.
The simple ad features a woman sitting on a bed, brandishing cards that repeat Trump campaign talking points of Biden as weak and a tool for the "far-left."

Some statements from the ad read:
"Joe Biden worries me. Biden embraced the policies of the far left. Biden will raise taxes, give amnesty to 11 million illegal immigrants...I'm afraid to say this out loud. I won't risk my children's future with Biden."
Now, a prominent anti-Trump Republican group has re-released the ad with a new makeover.
Republican Voters Against Trump (RVAT) is calling it The Real 'Cards' Ad.
Hey @realDonaldTrump, we fixed your ad for you. pic.twitter.com/RRZjdjrJOx

The doctored signs say:
"I voted for Trump in 2016. It was the biggest mistake of my life. Now 155,000 are dead from [the virus]. The economy is in tatters. My friends lost jobs and loved ones. All Trump does is watch TV and whine about it. I'm not afraid to say this out loud. I'm voting for Joe Biden in November."
People tended to prefer RVAT's version.
I can't believe they were stupid enough to release an ad that is so easily hijacked. They might as well have left the green-screen up on the cards.

Great ad, it says everything that needs to be said. I don't understand how anyone could even consider voting for trump again after what we've seen over the past 7 months let alone the past 3.5years. I just don't get trump voters 🤷🏻♀️

I live in Florida and just saw Trump's original ad during evening news. Will it be possible to air your revised ad on prime time in Florida media markets? PLEASE!

The ad reiterated just how tumultuous the administration has been for Americans across the country.
Trump's campaign of hate against the American people who have registered as democrats have cost 159k lives, 32,9% of the GDP and 40M jobs. Everyone is suffering all so he can blame the democrats. He's NOT worth it! https://t.co/JKz1AhzCPQ

In all fairness, Trump does play a lot of golf also. He cheats at that too. The only thing real about Trump is his devotion to Putin. Hum, I wonder if it's compromise, bribery or perhaps plain mob loyalty...to Russia.

I was shocked today to see rep accounts who believe covid is a hoax used for campaigning. I have never encountered a more disgusting claim, ever. Thank you for your commitment.

RVAT has not said whether the ad will jump off the internet and onto television screens.
