The mainstream press has been faux-outraged about a political ad broadcasted by President Donald J. Trump for several days, deeming it “racist” with precisely zero evidence.
“It is outrageous what the Democrats are doing to our Country. Vote Republican now!” Trump captioned a Tweet displaying the ad.
CNN refused to run this ad… I guess they only run fake news and won’t talk about real threats that don’t suit their agenda. Enjoy. Remember this on Tuesday. #vote #voterepublican pic.twitter.com/VyMm7GhPLX

The ad features proud cop-killer and illegal immigrant Luis Bracamontes, who smiled and laughed as he was arraigned in court, telling the judge that he wished he had killed more police officers.
The point of the ad was obviously to highlight the fact that illegal immigration is a problem promulgated by the Democrat party, but of course the mainstream press focused on the fact that Bracamontes is Latino.
Check out some of the opinion journalism from CNN:
“In the most racially charged national political ad in 30 years, President Donald Trump and the Republican Party accuse Democrats of plotting to help people they depict as Central American invaders overrun the nation with cop killers.The new web video, tweeted by the President five days before the midterm elections, is the most extreme step yet in the most inflammatory closing argument of any campaign in recent memory.The Trump campaign ad is the latest example of the President’s willingness to lie and fear-monger in order to tear at racial and societal divides; to embrace demagoguery to bolster his own political power and the cause of the Republican midterm campaign.”
