1. It's a great ad in isolation, but who is it aimed at...?

I really don't see a lot of "traditional Republicans" searching for a reason to desert 45 right now. Either they've become NeverTrumpers who already left his camp years ago, or they're MAGAts who will reflexively stop their ears against any contrary information, even if it's drawn from Little Lindsey's thoughts before he bound himself to Cheetolini for eternity.

2. I was profoundly underwhelmed.

Just one more R trying to distance himself from Toxic Trump and remake his own image.

3. Sad thing, for Lindsey, is that he could have owned this long ago

Could have been one of the directors of The Lincoln Project. Instead of having courage like Mitt Romney, and many Republicans outside of Washington, he went the opposite direction. Licking the boots of a criminal and traitor.

And this ad only exemplifies how far he has fallen. He could have been one of the Republican Never Trumpers that will rise from the ashes to rebuild the party once Trump is gone.

Its brilliant also because.....how exactly will Graham react to it? Does he disavow it? Saying he's "evolved" since then to realize that Trump is actually a great man? (And that Biden is a POS?) Someone losing in the polls, and will most likely go down in flames?

Or does he admit he is an opportunistic two-faced idiot?

The sick thing also is that deep down, Lindsey probably knows he was right the first time. But he's so deep in doo doo that he has to keep up the illusion that he was wrong in those early clips, because he's now tied to Trumps fat gut forever in the history books. What a schmuck.

9. I'm in total agreement.

I saw it the one time it was on television and have never forgotten it and the impact it had on me.

5. The target audience

is likely the tiny minority of independent, apolitical voters who are solely responsible for electing presidents every four years.

8. Maybe Trump threatened him with something?

Can't imagine what that something might be...
