3. What else would have been expected - an ad that plays on fear. Not anything positive at all.

4. ...and not a single fact or proposal in that vid...

5. true, and beyond that, it's just dreadful and more dark than "it's gonna be great!"

 

narration, sound, visuals are dark and meant to scare and stir animus.

7. It's not a good ad and only appeals to his base

Hopefully they'll spend a lot of money running it.

8. Well what a dumbass ad. It does nothing interesting or new.

Even the voiceover sounds bored.

And man, that white Whitey McWhiteson little family at the end, being kept safe from the brown people.

21. It's a tv series on TNT that's just finishing up its 7th and final season

Two strong female leads, a detective and the M.E. it's smart for a cable detective show without being macabre.

14. That's the slogan that once sold me on Edwards.

Whatever good Edwards would have done in office, I suspect that Trump is promising only the infidelity and fraud.

17. Looks like he's still trying to solidify

His cranky old white supremacist base... the one thing this ad does do is expose Trump's world view as a scary dark place where whites must fear everything and everyone. Only armed forces inside the US can protect white people from the dangers in their community. Only a strong and aggressive military can protect white America from the rest of the world.

This is a sick man with a twisted view of the US and our place in the world.
