While even the Mafia has a code of honor prohibiting attacks on family members such a thing is absent with the parasitical bottom-feeders of the professional political consultant class. An pro-Romney, anti-Trump super PAC is pushing the bounds of decency with an online ad in Mormon infested Utah showing the GOP front-runner’s wife Melania in the buff. The ad targets religiously inclined female voters with the inference that the First Lady in a Trump administration will be a slut.
The website Buzzfeed reports “Anti-Trump Group Runs Facebook Ads Seeking To Rally Mormon Voters”:
With Tuesday’s presidential primary contests in Utah and Arizona approaching, a conservative anti-Trump group is running Facebook ads aimed at rallying Mormon voters against the billionaire frontrunner.
Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — a solidly Republican demographic in most elections — have shown a uniquely strong aversion to Donald Trump this year, for reasons I explain here. A Y2 Analytics poll released over the weekend shows Trump running a far-distant third in Utah, garnering just 11% of the vote. And a new Deseret News/KSL poll shows Trump losing Utah, one of the reddest states in the country, to both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in the general election.
Liz Mair, a Republican strategist whose anti-Trump super PAC Make America Awesome launched the Facebook campaign last week, said each ad is expected to reach around 10,000 Mormons of voting age a day. The goal is twofold: increase turnout among LDS voters, and urge them to strategically consolidate around Ted Cruz, who is close to the 50% winner-take-all threshold in Utah.
The group is running three ads: one that features Mitt Romney, one that emphasizes Trump’s past support for pro-choice policies, and a third that shows Melania Trump posing nude. The Melania ad, which is by far the most provocative, invites viewers to meet “your next first lady.” Mair said that one is being promoted on Instagram as well, but only to LDS women.
Mair said this is the first time the group has run ads urging voters to back a specific candidate. In Utah and Arizona, polls show Cruz with a much better chance than John Kasich of beating Trump. And Mair, who has Mormon family members, believes she could bring some expertise in the effort to court LDS voters.
The campaign is the brainchild of establishment dirty trickster Liz Mair who made news a few months ago over her “Trump Card, LLC” slime machine. Ms. Mair is the former online communications director of the RNC according to a Wall Street Journal story from last year. She was joined by creepy Trump hater Rick Wilson who while slamming Trump over phantom “misogynist” comments about Megyn Kelly’s vaginal blood flow, was at the same time accusing conservative icon Ann Coulter of having anal sex with the Donald.
Mair’s ad shows how the media and political operatives are making Trump’s family into fair game. Both his son Eric and sister who is a federal judge have received envelopes containing suspicious white powder in recent days.
While it’s probably too late to help Trump in Utah – a slam dunk for Team Romney – it will only serve to boost the candidate in other states as it comes apparent that there is some real scum on the establishment side.
