New Anti-Hillary Ad Targets Redskins Fans Who Don’t Want Team Name Changed (Video)
There has been no shortage of stupid political ads over the past 18 months. But this one might be the stupidest one yet.
An organization called Rebuilding America Now unveiled a new anti-Hillary ad on Sunday targeting Washington Redskins fans who do not want the team to change its name.
“You thought you were safe, sitting in your recliner in your mancave, cold beer and a bowl of chips. You thought you’d escape politics by focusing on football,” the narrator says. But then he informs you that you were wrong.
“Hillary Clinton,” he says with the slightest hint of a laugh, “wants to mess up your football too! Hillary wants to change the name of the Redskins!”
The ad then cuts to a clip of Clinton outlining her stance on the controversial Redskins issue.
Take a look:
At first I thought this was a joke. I mean, do you know anybody who watches football like the guys in this ad?
It’s not a joke, though. Rebuild America Now is a real Super PAC, and this commercial is apparently serious.
I’m not going to tell you how to vote on Tuesday. Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Jill Stein, that guy who can’t remember any world leaders’ names—seriously, I don’t care.
I am going to beg you, however, not to base your vote for PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES ON AMERICA on something as trivial as the name of a football team. Please.
