Lincoln Project’s New Laugh Track Ad Hammers Trump Over Fox News Interview
The anti-Trump Republican super PAC The Lincoln Project released a new ad poking fun at President Trump over his recent interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, adding a laugh track over many of Trump’s comments.
- The ad opens with “an image of the White House and the caption ‘Trumpfeld,’ which is modeled after the logo for ‘Seinfeld,’ along with music similar to the hit '90s sitcom's signature theme song,” The Hill reported.
- After Wallace notes that Joe Biden was eight points ahead of the president in recent polling, Trump claimed the polls were fake — and The Lincoln Project threw in a laugh track.
“First of all, I’m not losing,” the president told Wallace, with the group's ad then including audio of a crowd laughing.
“Those are fake polls,” Trump claimed in a later clip included in the ad, followed by more added laughter.
- Laughter also ensued in the ad when Wallace and Trump discussed the cognitive test the president took and claims to have “aced.”
“Let’s take a test,” the president told Wallace.
“Joe and I will take a test. Let him take the same test that I took,” Trump continued over the sound of laughs in the Lincoln Project's ad.
- Wallace, who said he also had taken the test, told Trump during the interview: “It’s not the hardest test. They have a picture, and it says 'What’s that?' and it’s an elephant.”
- Trump then claimed the test “gets very hard, the last five questions.”
“Don’t you believe America deserves a president who doesn’t brag he can spot an elephant?” the Lincoln Project's ad asks.
