In the eyes of many Republicans and Independents, the greatest thing that former President Donald Trump ever did was save the country from having to live under at least four years of a Hillary Clinton presidency. Now, in the run-up to 2024, former President Trump’s campaign team is playing on that feeling with an advertisement about Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden.
The ad mainly plays off of a recent comment Clinton made to a CNN host, Christiane Amanpour, about Trump supporters needing to undergo “formal deprogramming” to rid them of their support for Trump and his MAGA movement.
Running with that “brainwashed” idea, the advertisement starts off with a line of voters getting blindfolded and “brainwashed” as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton praises those policies of the Biden Administration that Trump and Republicans find absolutely horrible.
The advertisement goes on to thrash Bidenomics, which is what President Biden calls his economics agenda. Further, it mocks Biden and digs even more into to the Orwellian “deprogramming” comment by playing a clip of Biden struggling to get up a staircase while a man with a megaphone yells “this did not happen” at voters.
The narrator, getting into what Trump and his campaign want the Silent Majority to take away from the ad, then interjects and says, “But there’s one small problem. Working Americans aren’t idiots. And they know who’s on their side.”
Then, with that somewhat cheery message, a non-brainwashed Trump supporter runs to the front of the aforementioned line of voters while holding a sign showing Trump taking Biden to task for economic issues, such as Bidenflation, at a rally. Trump himself then ends it by adding, “To American workers watching their take home pay stink and watching inflation destroy their family and their lives, to all of you, I have your back.”

In her “deprogramming” comments, Hillary said, “You saw the number of Republicans who voted along with Democrats to keep the government open, so there’s clearly a common sense, sane part of the Republican caucus in the House. But I think they are intimidated. They oftentimes, you know, say and do things which they know better than to say or do, and it will require us defeating those most extreme measures and the people who promote them in order to try to get to some common ground where people can again work together.”
She continued, “That’s the way it used to be. I mean, we had very strong partisans in both parties in the past and we had very bitter battles over all kinds of things: gun control, and climate change, and the economy, and taxes. But there wasn’t this little tail of extremism wagging the dog of the Republican Party as it is today, and sadly, so many of those extremists, those MAGA extremists, take their marching orders from Donald Trump, who has no credibility left by any measure. He’s only in it for himself. He’s now defending himself in civil actions and criminal actions, and when do they break with him? You know, because at some point, you know, maybe there needs to be a formal deprogramming of the cult members. But something needs to happen.“
