Trump continues to litigate the 2020 election as if it's still a live issue.

Amid repeated court setbacks, President Donald Trump continues to litigate the 2020 election as if it’s still a live issue, with two ads being released Saturday that bemoan purportedly stolen elections and a “broken system.”

Cable television viewers will be able to enjoy the ads, though the campaign did not announce details of budget, buy, and so on in a media release accompanying the creative.

The Evidence Is Overwhelming: FRAUD, a 30-second spot, palpitates with the urgency of a police procedural.

“America deserved a honest election, and this is what they got,” asserts a female narrator, a prelude to a cavalcade of alleged subversions of democracy such as purported “suitcases of ballots” in the Peach State, corpses voting in Wisconsin, cash for vote schemes in Nevada, and other purported perfidies.

“The evidence is overwhelming,” asserts the urgent call-to-action beseeching the Trump faithful to “demand legislators fight for honest elections.”

The second spot runs 60 seconds and showcases the same call to action.

STOP THE STEAL uses a stentorian-voiced male narrator to make the case that Trump really won the election … but “something happened,” using argumentation that sometimes conflates causation and correlation and other times just throws them in a food processor and sets it to puree.

The evidence? Trump “got more votes than President [Barack] Obama and both Clintons … more votes than any President in history.”

Despite that achievement, and having “won Ohio, Florida, and 95% of bellwether counties,” the apparently assured victory was undermined, assures the narrator, by “rushed out mail-in ballots … dead people voting … Biden ballots added in the middle of the night.”

The Trump campaign says “these ads inform viewers of the widespread corruption that occurred in the 2020 election, including suitcases of Biden ballots, dead people voting, and money-for-vote schemes, while also encouraging voters to call their legislators to demand a free and fair election.”

    Trump apparently isn’t very good at math. He got the most votes in history except for the guy he was running against. His fight isn’t with the election officials it’s with basic common sense. At least nobody will confuse Donald for a mathmagician.

    Clearly, election fraud doesn’t matter if your candidate won, right? But, next time, when the OTHER candidate gets 81MM votes but didn’t have a platform, an agenda, a 1st 100 days pledge & wouldn’t discuss valid topics (Court packing & Hunter’s criminal behavior)- then, you will be mad. Living under the LID in his basement, wandering a mere 20 miles from his home to attend invisible (but media covered) ‘rallies’ he bumbled along making no sense & never completing a single sentence in English. I’m sure that he generated 81MM votes…Nope. Sadly, I smell gunpowder & civil unrest. I worry about what the US is becoming…a authoritarian regime.

    Stop the Steal! Stop Trump attempting to steal this election. It is Trump who is doing the STEALING! By methods foul or fair. Trump apparently has a proven history of lies, cheating and stealing in order to “win”. The King of Fake. He who tweeted, played golf and denigrated others whilst his country was struck by a global pandemic. It is said that Nero who fiddled while Rome burned. Meanwhile Donald Trump continued to tweet, play golf, denigrate others, and sprout Fake news and mis-information.

    Would like to hear from the mouth of Donald Trump, a posthumous apology to John McCain. And another apology to John McCain’s family. And another apology to all US Serviceman. Together with an explanation from Trump himself as to the meaning of a “LOSER”

    The you tube videos were censored. How can I make a judgment if the big tech only censores one of the sides, the side that states that there was a fraud ?
    Should not be more fair to censor the statements of both sides ?
