    New Cruz Ad Imagines Clinton's Glee at Facing Trump

    New Cruz Ad Imagines Clinton's Glee at Facing Trump

    By Tyler O'Neil April 21, 2016


    Republican presidential underdog Ted Cruz just released his strongest ad yet. The 2-minute clip reveals a "War Room" strategy session at the
    Hillary Clinton headquarters. A woman playing top aide Huma Abedin drives the intrigue, as Clinton advisors plot with glee how to demolish
    Republican frontrunner Donald Trump. Cruz, on the other hand, cannot be so easily defeated.

    After Trump's smashing success in the New York primary, Cruz likely cannot gain the required 1,237 delegates to win the Republican nomination
    on the first ballot at the convention, but he can still stop Trump from doing so. Republicans seeking a reason why they should help Cruz achieve
    that need look no further than the arguments in this ad.

    The ad is hilariously over-the-top. It seems to take the intrigues of politics too seriously and yet, at the same time, mocks its own faux solemnity.

    The villain Clinton is an evil-eyed caricature of the corrupt politician she actually is. Abedin paces malignantly, and staffers both smile gleefully at
    the weaknesses of Trump and grimace looking at the candidate they actually support.

    The ad hits on every negative stereotype of Clinton -- relying on her "friends in the media," planning everything behind closed doors, and utterly
    wicked in brooding. It also manages to slam Trump.

    "Donald Trump is paving the way for you to win the White House," a staffer declares. One by one, they list his weaknesses.

    "Silencing dissenters with lawsuits, taking people's property, and a long list of failed businesses" plague The Donald's campaign. "He plays fast and
    loose with the facts, and he's only concerned with himself."

    The ad also delves into policy. "Trump's comments on abortion have angered pro-lifers and the pro-choice crowd," an adviser says. "Trump wants
    to stabilize the Korean peninsula by giving Japan and South Korea nuclear weapons." Abedin responds, saying "scary," and another staffer explains
    that "our research shows most people actually think he is scary." Trump has the second-worst favorable numbers of any presidential candidate
    (guess who has the worst!).

    Perhaps most tellingly, another staffer adds, "Our friends at the IRS say his returns are full of bombshells -- he claims to be a billionaire, but takes
    tax credits for people who make less than half a million a year."

    "The point is, if Trump becomes the Republican nominee, the White House is yours," the advisers conclude. Then Abedin asks, "What do you mean if?"

    The staffers list the qualities Americans want in a president: someone they can trust, "someone who respects the constitution and the rights it protects,"
    a person who "has a proven track record taking on the Washington establishment."

    When Abedin presses the staffers on which candidate would really be a threat, they don't even say his name. Instead, they pass Clinton a file. When
    she opens it, there is a picture of the plucky conservative Texan.

    Aghast, Abedin asks, angrily, "How do we stop Ted Cruz?" After her question triggers no response, she repeats it. Then comes the final coup: "I don't
    think we can."

    In a quick two minutes, the Cruz campaign demolishes Trump and Clinton, in a hilarious and entertaining way. Seriously, the ad is very fun, in a film noir style.

    I hope Cruz isn't counting on Trumps voters voting for him. Because from what I am reading they won't.

    "Opponents call it discriminatory because one group is targeted"
    I have been to courts and have witnessed How illegals are getting away with stuff Americans would be in Prison or Jail for doing. It is almost like they are afraid to do anything to illegals. Last time I was in court I watched an illegal with no papers, no green card that was ticketed for no insurance, registration, or license be sent to driving school a cost of about 50.00. He was in an accident and caused damage to someones property I sat and listened. The illegal had his cap on backwards and I mentioned to the lady next to me why are they allowing him to keep his hat on? No sooner did he walk out and close the door and the baliff told someone in line to get his hat off now? I sat and listened to an American who was in an accident and ticketed who was told they would hold the case over until all medical bills were paid if they were not paid he would be responsible. Just go sit in court any day they are always there and see for yourself. Americans are treated different, held to the law in courts and it is not the Americans coming out ahead. The illegals are handled with caution and it is about time something is done.
