Joe Biden Ad Roasts Trump’s ‘You’ll Never See Me Again’ Pledge To Perfection
Sometimes an election ad writes itself.
President Donald Trump provided Joe Biden’s campaign team with the perfect fodder when the incumbent declared with apparent sarcasm at a North Carolina rally Saturday: “If I lose to him, I don’t know what I’m gonna do. I will never speak to you again. You’ll never see me again.”
Team Biden quickly put together a video clip of the moment and the Democratic nominee provided the kicker: “I’m Joe Biden and I approve this message.”
The quick hit turned into Twitter gold, viewed more than 13 million times.
While producing this commercial probably didn’t make a dent in Biden’s budget, the two candidates have been spending quite a lot to get their word across.
Biden’s campaign poured in $65 million across digital, TV and print platforms last week, CNN reported. Trump’s campaign last week said it ramped up advertising with an “eight-figure” buy, but didn’t specify the amount, according to AP.
