The Trump administration has had the highest turnover rate of any administration ever. And the most leaks. And by far the most tell-all books while they're still in office. The Lincoln Project uses all that in this clever ad, aimed at freaking Trump out.

Like a trailer to a psychological thriller along the lines of Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation, in which a wire-tapping detective played by Gene Hackman struggles with mounting paranoia until he has a full-on break down, this Lincoln Project video goes beyond your usual anti-Trump ad. This one isn't for the Republicans against Trump, and it's not for waffling Independents. It's only for an audience of one -- Trump himself. Meant to goad, it's sure to exacerbate his already spiraling affliction with delusions and paranoia.

The Kinks were right. Paranoia will destroy ya.
