“Regretful Trump Voter” in Swing State Ad Never Even Voted in 2016
Democrats have proved time and time again that they will stop at nothing to get rid of President Donald Trump. They will tell any lie, make up any story, and even create incriminating evidence out of nothing to push the leftist cause. But as the saying goes, ‘you can’t hide from the truth forever.’
And that is certainly true for this Pennsylvania resident who claims to be a “regretful Trump voter.”
Mark Graham is featured in an ad for the American Bridge 21st Century PAC that is prominently played throughout the state and has been since November 12. In the video, Mark claims to be a man who voted for Trump in 2016 and now regrets that decision.
He says in the ad, “I voted for Donald Trump in 2016 because I thought he would make a change.” And continues, encouraging Pennsylvania residents to vote for anyone besides Trump in 2020 so they too won’t regret their decision. The minute-long ad for the PAC says keeping Trump in office would be like throwing “gasoline on a fire.”
You can watch the full video below.
However, as WJET-TV reports, Graham never even voted in 2016. Not for Trump, not for Hillary Clinton. He never cast his ballot at all.
Oops. Talk about a significant blunder on American Bridge’s part.
Or is it a blunder at all? Could this have been designed by the left as another attempt to undo Trump? To rid us of our president at any cost?
Many are starting to think so.
Pennsylvania GOP Chairman Lawrence Tabas stated in a recent news release, “The ad is false, its premise is false and its messenger has been discredited.”
According to Patriot-News from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Tabas continued, saying, “The organization could have easily determined that Graham had not voted in 2016 by checking the publicly available records at the Erie County elections office.”
But apparently, the PAC doesn’t really care. They like their ad and therefore are continuing to run it, even with the truth being aired.
In fact, they like it so much that it is the only available content on the PAC’s Pennsylvania state page. Plus, they have disabled the option to comment on the YouTube video. This means that unless you hear about the absolute lie that this video is from outside sources, there is no way of knowing just how dishonest the ad is.
These facts no longer make it possible to be a simple blunder on their part. It is an outright lie. One being told to millions of people who have no possible way of knowing that there isn’t an ounce of truth to it.
And in a swing state with 20 electoral votes and more than 6 million eligible voters, the truth needs to be known by as many people as possible.
In 2016, Trump won the state of Pennsylvania but only by a slim margin – less than 50,000 votes to be more precise. Thanks to this small number of voters, Trump still was able to claim to the electoral votes for the state.
But this year things could be very different.
Since November, when this ad was released, it has been viewed over 53,000 times. And if every person who sees it believes it because there are no facts to contradict it, it could spell disaster for Trump in 2020.
The state has always been closely contested, and this year is likely to be no different, which means that every vote will count. But how can the polls be even remotely fair if statewide ads refuse to tell the truth and refuse to be corrected?
And even worse than that is the fact that the anti-Republican PAC has other similar ads running in other important voting states such as Michigan, Wisconsin, Florida, and Arizona.
The effect could be devastating to the GOP unless someone holds them accountable.
It’s absolutely shameless. Have they no decency, no honor, no thread of morality left? Apparently, not. It’s a good thing that the truth always comes out, one way or another. We will just have to hope it is sooner rather than later.
