Mike Bloomberg has been running one of the more surreal presidential candidacies of the modern era. He’s spending the Democratic 2020 primary race running pervasive television ads that attack Donald Trump, while not even bothering to try to meet the qualifications for participating in the Democratic debates. Bloomberg has also vowed to spend the general election running ads aimed at helping whoever the Democratic nominee ends up being.
That brings us to Mike Bloomberg’s latest television ad, which consists entirely of great lines delivered by past presidents from both parties, interspersed with the embarrassing and un-presidential things that Donald Trump keeps saying. The ad is highly effective. You can watch it below:
Our country has a rich history of presidents who respected the power, decorum, and influence of their office.
Unfortunately, that rich history ended the day Trump became president. pic.twitter.com/3QEncsTiNA
