How A Pro-Trump Group Will Troll ‘Morning Joe’ For A Whole Week — First Round Planned For Christmas Day
Pro-Trump group America First Policies plans to air its “Merry Christmas” ad 11 times over a week on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” beginning on Christmas day, The Daily Caller has learned.
The ad, previewed on Fox News Wednesday, quickly went viral on social media for featuring citizens “thanking” President Trump for various achievements in the last year. The ad famously ends with a young girl thanking Trump “for letting us say Merry Christmas again.”
“We believe that cable news audiences, perhaps even the employees and viewers of ‘crazy Joe and Mika,’ will find something to love about our new ad. In fact, many of them have already been told that they can expect a bonus, thanks to President Trump’s tax cut—just one of his many gifts to the American people this year,” America First Policies communications director Erin Montgomery told TheDC.
MSNBC hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough have been fierce critics of Trump on their TV program, at times drawing the ire of the president’s Twitter account. Most recently the president insinuated Scarborough was involved in the death of one of his Congressional aides, which occurred at his office. The aide’s death was ruled an accident in 2001.
The ad is a product of a one million dollar blitz by America First Policies and will debut first during the “Fox and Friends” broadcast on Dec. 24, before appearing on several other news channels, Montgomery said.
