The most jaw-dropping part of the story that accompanies this ad is the fact the media seem oblivious to what the message is.
Having watched the news cycle today there’s not a single pundit who has identified the intensely brilliant messaging within the 15 second video:
This ad was not just targeted to domestic consumption. This ad was directly distancing Donald Trump from Clinton’s failed and massively botched “Russian Reset“. The message was more for Putin to see than for U.S. media to discuss.
Read The Art of The Deal. This is Brilliant !
You’ll note the Clinton campaign cannot respond to it. Team Clinton have to remain silent about it because if they start to talk it brings focus on the “Russian Reset“.
As soon as they respond, they have walked into Trump’s designed battle space. This is intensely sharp political campaigning at the highest operative level imaginable.
