  • Trump Campaign post web ad about supporting Veterans. One problem

    The ad featured a 'stock' video of Veterans downloaded from the internet, a video of Soviet Veterans. They eventually took it down.

    http://www.politico.com/story/2016/0...rans-ad-218132

    The video — which was later deleted — contains images of soldiers with medals that have the hammer and sickle, the symbol for communism, and “CCCP,” an abbreviation for the Soviet Union. The original footage is available on the stock footage site Shutterstock and is titled “RUSSIA, TOGLIATTI, MAY 9, 2015, Victory Day: Veterans of World War II with red flowers in hand at the Military Parade, military medals.”
    “The time has come,” the Walrus said,
    “To talk of many things:
    Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
    Of cabbages—and kings—
    And why the sea is boiling hot—
    And whether pigs have wings.”

    I wonder why Politico didn't share Trump's video..

    It just shows what is already known about politicians from both parties.

    Remember when the DNC used the Russian Fleet to show it's patriotism?

    Russian ships displayed at DNC tribute to vets

    On the last night of the Democratic National Convention, a retired Navy four-star took the stage to pay tribute to veterans. Behind him, on a giant screen, the image of four hulking warships reinforced his patriotic message.

    But there was a big mistake in the stirring backdrop: those are Russian warships.

      Pathetic, even by Trump's standards.

        What's is wrong or surprising about that in Trump?

        He gestures towards intending to seem like honouring veterans and really, isn't it the pretense that counts? Kind of like his "Christianity" or any of his "policy" statements.

          He took it down. Can't show what's not up.

              This week also featured retweeting a tweet about Jeb Bush from a white supremacist. That was yesterday also.

                You don't find it strange that Politico is reporting a story that can't be backed up?

                  No, I don't live in imagination land. It was posted on Trumps Facebook page, when they realized the cock up, they took it down.

                        This seem like a non-event. At least he does honor vets, unlike the anti-American Obama.

                        We need to keep things in perspective.

                          Do you find it odd that you didn't just google the video yourself before claiming it can't be backed up?

                              I find it odd that Politico wouldn't provide a link to cover their story....everyone knows rule #1.

                              Don't you find it odd that they wouldn't provide a link?
