Make America Awesome is simply playing to win.
One person, and one person alone, bears responsibility for the poor “tone” of the 2016 presidential campaign: Donald Trump.
Early in this race, Trump made an issue of a GQ photo spread of Megyn Kelly, a widely respected, tough female journalist he happened not to like and criticized by suggesting she had “blood coming out of her wherever.”
Trump attacked fellow candidate Jeb Bush’s wife early in this race as well. Political writers have reported that his campaign was shopping bogus, negative information about Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi, in advance of our even contemplating the ad we ran.
The fact is, Trump’s wife is hardly an uninvolved bystander in his campaign.
Nor was she inactive in furthering his political career when the spread featuring the image we used originally ran. Melania Trump appeared in the specific image we used in our ad as part of a magazine profile apparently aimed at boosting Trump’s presidential fortunes. Yes, really. Google it.Read the rest of Liz Mair's op-ed HERE.
