Soros-Funded Group to Spend Millions Attacking President Trump Over Coronavirus


Sure, that money could help actual affected people, but during an economic crisis and a pandemic, the Democrats will use big donor money to smear President Trump and undermine the administration. How patriotic of them.

A Democratic super PAC said Tuesday it would spend $5 million on digital advertising flaying President Trump for his response to the novel coronavirus, one of several groups that planned to devote resources to this type of messaging.

The campaign from Pacronym — a political action committee affiliated with the nonprofit group Acronym — represents the first major pivot to coronavirus-related advertising fewer than 250 days from the election.

“This is a public health issue and a national security issue, but it’s also a public policy issue and thus a political one,” said Tara McGowan, the founder and chief executive of Acronym, whose board includes veteran Democratic operatives like David Plouffe, who managed Barack Obama’s 2008 bid.

And mostly it's an opportunity. 

Already the group has run a handful of ads about the lack of tests for the novel virus.

Sure that money could be used to help fund tests, but isn't this much better?

McGowan said her organization was weighing ethical considerations in deciding on the substance of the advertising and would heed whatever recommendations the technology companies issued about coronavirus-related content

Ask the foxes about a henhouse pass.

Of course. Good old George.

Funny how we can shut down all public life, but no one can do anything about this campaign to undermine our coronavirus response.
