President Trump’s reelection campaign is threatening multiple TV stations with lawsuits for airing an ad alleging the president dismissed the coronavirus as a “hoax.”

The George Soros-backed super PAC, Priorities USA, crafted the ad by creatively splicing audio of Trump in recent weeks while a chart depicts the exponential growth of COVID-19 in the United States.


It is being aired in several television markets in battleground states.

WATCH:

Per Mediaite

Campaign attorney Alex Cannon sent cease and desist letters to all the stations airing the ad, saying they will take legal action if they don’t stop airing it.

“PUSA’s advertisement is false, misleading, and deceptive, and we formally demand that your station refuse to continue airing it to meet your responsibilities not to broadcast false information,” the letter says. “Should you fail to immediately cease broadcasting PUSA’s ad ‘Exponential Threat,’ Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. will have no choice but to pursue all legal remedies available to it in law and in equity; we will not stand idly by and allow you to broadcast false, deceptive, and misleading information concerning President’s Trump’s healthcare positions without consequence.”

Hopefully, the Trump team is prepared to lose another one because this is dead wrong with no proof to take it to court with.

Comparing Trump’s entire ACTUAL broadcast with the cut and paste broadcast is all the proof he needs for court. It will be an actual court with laws that are followed as opposed to the farce impeachment

With some good cutting and pasting you could make Hitler look like a good guy. You might even be able to make Hillary look likable, but I doubt it.

Aside from persecuting Jews and starting a war, Hitler accomplished a lot of good things. Hillary on the other hand…

I must have missed something. What “good things” do you refer to?

The cold blooded murder of millions of people makes any good things Hitler did less valuable than a zoo monkey’s fingernail clippings.

Vlad,
Your comment is illogical, if barely understandable. Informed people know that Trump was saying the Fake News was blaming him for the Corona virus spread, so THAT was another hoax- like “Russia collusion” and all the other hoaxes concocted against the POTUS. Trump never said the virus was a hoax. That’s a damnable, Progressive lie.

Trump never makes threats, he just does what has to be done, so he just let us know in his inimitable iconic manner that those lawsuits are already launched against the media again – he’s winning.
