This Is A Sick Ad

I'm no fan of Donald Trump, but this anti-Trump PAC went way too far.
This Is A Sick Ad

I oppose Donald Trump's candidacy as much as anyone, but this anti-Trump Super PAC, led by Republican strategist Liz Mair, crossed the line big time when they posted an erotic ad depicting Trump's wife Melania to, I guess arouse LDS voters against Trump. via Buzzfeed.

Liz Mair, a Republican strategist whose anti-Trump super PAC Make America Awesome launched the Facebook campaign last week, said each ad is expected to reach around 10,000 Mormons of voting age a day. The goal is twofold: increase turnout among LDS voters, and urge them to strategically consolidate around Ted Cruz, who is close to the 50% winner-take-all threshold in Utah.

The group is running three ads: one that features Mitt Romney, one that emphasizes Trump’s past support for pro-choice policies, and a third that shows Melania Trump posing nude. The Melania ad, which is by far the most provocative, invites viewers to meet “your next first lady.” Mair said that one is being promoted on Instagram as well, but only to LDS women.

I'm not trying to perpetuate this image, but I need to post it so you understand what I'm talking about.

Trump is already way down in the Utah polls, so I'm not sure why Mair is sinking so low?

Mair said this is the first time the group has run ads urging voters to back a specific candidate. In Utah and Arizona, polls show Cruz with a much better chance than John Kasich of beating Trump. And Mair, who has Mormon family members, believes she could bring some expertise in the effort to court LDS voters.

“We think the Cruz campaign has turned evangelical outreach into something of a fine art,” Mair said. “We’re not so sure he has LDS outreach locked down, though, and this is an area where we have a little bit of experience and knowledge over and above some Republican operatives, so it’s something we’ve decided to delve into for these contests, at least.”

Trying to make Melania look like a model from Pornhub is disgraceful.
