The first campaign ad of the 2020 presidential campaigns has arrived, and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. The ad for Trump’s 2020 reelection shows his new campaign manager, Brad Parscale, informing voters that they need to call Donald Trump via a special 800 number and thank him for doing such a good job. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains how Trump’s fragile ego led the campaign to the decision that sucking up is the best way to make Trump happy.

Thanks to lower regulations, massive tax cuts and renegotiated trade deals that put America first. Finally, the working class forgotten. Americans are winning. We are enforcing our immigration laws and make an American safer because America is stronger around the world. The president Trump is an ambitious daily attacks by the fake news media, far left Democrats who wants to implement the radical socialist agenda. It will stop at nothing to overturn the election or remove your President from office 2016 unique and millions of deplorables elected president Trump. Trump’s bring change to Washington and make America great again, but we need your help.

They say that word like it’s a badge of honor. We are deplorable. We’re fighting again, resonance from is reelected in 2020, but we cannot do it alone. We need help from Trump supporters like you.

And if you don’t want to give us money, we’re going to double check with you towards the end of the call and say, are you sure, please? These horrible Liberal Democrats want to put socialism in here. Aren’t you a good deplorable? I mean, the idiot actually said that like me and you and millions of other deplorables, dude, it’s not a good thing to call yourself that you know, that’s not something you should be proud of because Trump has proven everyday that yeah, his followers truly are those deplorables. But nonetheless, ladies and gentlemen, that’s the ad. That’s what happens when you call that phone number. I have done it for you. So now, hopefully you don’t have to.
