10. I don't think they used the I Have A Dream speech

the speech they used was from 1968 and that speech was 1964.

13. Thank you for that

I will definitely share it.

Of course I think the commercial did exactly what it intended too. The deplorables will love it - it prostitutes King's name and devalues him by extension in their eyes.

On average, pickup drivers are three times more likely to be Republican than they are to be Democrat.
