GOP Group Busts A Big Republican Talking Point Using Donald Trump’s Own Words
Posted On May 21, 2021
Ex-President Donald Trump’s vitriolic blog posts are used to dispel a major Republican talking point in a conservative group’s damning new ad.
“Republicans say they want to move on past the 2020 election,” the narrator begins in Republican Accountability Project’s latest spot, released Thursday.
The 76-second clip cuts to various screenshots of Trump’s blog, where he repeatedly rants about the 2020 election and baselessly claims that it was stolen from him.
Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas), Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and Marco Rubio (Fla.) then appear on-screen, declaring that it’s time to move forward.
“If Republicans want to move on from the 2020 election, they should tell Donald Trump,” the narrator concludes.
Last week, the group — part of Defending Democracy Together — shared a video naming the GOP lawmakers who enabled Trump in summoning “the mob” to the deadly U.S. Capitol riot.
The House voted on Wednesday to set up a bipartisan commission to investigate the insurrection, but it will face pushback from Republicans in the Senate who have said they may filibuster the bill.
