Anti-Trump Ad: “Biden For President. He’s Not A Whiny B*tch.”
A series of political ads recently have focused on why Donald Trump would be a bad choice in November. A new one, released since Trump’s Saturday rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, focuses on Trump’s own words. It’s a clip of Trump in Tulsa, edited to add commentary. Most of the 90-second ad is Trump explaining why walking down a ramp at West Point was so hard for him, before the ad cuts to Joe Biden running up the same ramp.
The ad cuts between Trump in Tulsa on June 20, explaining his ramp trip, and the actual event at West Point Military Academy a week before. As Trump describes the experience, commentary is added, mocking Trump’s story. There’s even a little snow edited in when Trump complains that the ramp was like an ice-skating rink. At the end, there’s a plug for Biden: “He’s not a whiny b*tch.”
Please don't retweet this sequel to my first Trump/Biden "ramp video". Because Trump spent 10 whole minutes defending his West Point walk at his rally today.

The video got a bit of a boost when it was shared by the conservative Lincoln Project, which has released many anti-Trump ads of its own. “This is art,” the PAC’s official Twitter account declared.
The Find A CLear Truth account that initially produced and shared the ad had previously shown footage of Biden going down the ramp at West Point, noting that he appeared to do so at a faster pace than Trump.
What about Biden? He's a little harder to make out, since the shot is wide, but it's pretty clear that he's heading down the ramp at a good clip. In fact the guy behind him appears to be trying to catch up. pic.twitter.com/WWVN5ZdV27

Trump had defended his careful descent once already, tweeting the night of the event to describe the ramp as long, steep, and slippery.
The ramp that I descended after my West Point Commencement speech was very long & steep, had no handrail and, most importantly, was very slippery. The last thing I was going to do is “fall” for the Fake News to have fun with. Final ten feet I ran down to level ground. Momentum!

Political Flare describes the week between the West Point speech and the rally as one of Trump’s worst politically, citing “diving polls, SCOTUS rulings, Bolton, and then the big weekend, shady firings of Berman at SDNY, and the ‘Tulsa Disaster.'”
