PRIORITIES USA LAUNCHES “Grace” TELEVISION AD IN GEORGIA
Ad Tells Story Of Glaros Family Whose Daughter Grace Was Born With Spina Bifida
Trump’s Mocking Of Someone With A Disability Reveals His True Character, & Just How Unfit He Is To Be President
Multi-Million Dollar Buy Will Run In Major Georgia Markets, Marks First Priorities Investment In State
Donald Trump’s mocking of someone with a disability was more than just an isolated incident, it was a troubling look into who he is as a person and proof that he’s unfit to be President of the United States. That’s why as Priorities expands the map into Georgia today we’re starting with our “Grace” television ad. The spot tells the story of the Glaros family, whose daughter was born with a condition called Spina Bifida. In the ad, Grace’s father notes that even “when I saw that clip of Donald Trump mocking somebody with a disability, it stunned me, I was shocked.” Grace’s mother adds “when I saw Donald Trump mock someone with a disability, it told me everything I needed to know about his heart, and what he believes deep down.”
Ed. note - It is hard to see how the Trump campaign can respond to ads like these which seem to be very effective at painting him in an most unflattering light, and could be inflicting significant damage on his prospects in the general election.
