Whose Bright Idea Was It To Show A Naked Melania Trump In An Attack Ad?

Tyler Durden's picture

There is nothing wrong with attack ads: Trump's first attack ad against Hillary Clinton was creative, original, imaginative - it included Jihadi John, a barking Hillary Clinton and a cackling Putin. It promptly went viral. Hillary's retort was basically a duller version of the original Trump ad; it was ok although Hillary's SuperPAC will have to do much better to keep the entertainment level on par.

However, when a conservative, anti-Trump group decided to run Facebook ads which showcased naked photos of Melania Trump, we wonder: what were they thinking?

According to Buzzfeed, with Tuesday’s presidential primary contests in Utah and Arizona just one day away, the anti-trumpers are running Facebook ads aimed at rallying Mormon voters against the billionaire frontrunner. Not surprisingly following Mitt Romney's relentless bashing of Trump, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - a solidly Republican demographic in most elections - have shown a uniquely strong aversion to Donald Trump this year. According to a poll released over the weekend shows Trump running a far-distant third in Utah, garnering just 11% of the vote. And a new Deseret News/KSL poll shows Trump losing Utah, one of the reddest states in the country, to both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in the general election.

Ok, so Trump is going to lose Utah. Where it gets strange, however, is that Liz Mair - a Republican strategist whose anti-Trump super PAC Make America Awesome launched a Facebook anti-Trump campaign last week, said each ad is expected to reach around 10,000 Mormons of voting age a day. The goal is twofold: increase turnout among LDS voters, and urge them to strategically consolidate around Ted Cruz, who is close to the 50% winner-take-all threshold in Utah.

Mair said this is the first time the group has run ads urging voters to back a specific candidate. In Utah and Arizona, polls show Cruz with a much better chance than John Kasich of beating Trump. And Mair, who has Mormon family members, believes she could bring some expertise in the effort to court LDS voters.

 

“We think the Cruz campaign has turned evangelical outreach into something of a fine art,” Mair said. “We’re not so sure he has LDS outreach locked down, though, and this is an area where we have a little bit of experience and knowledge over and above some Republican operatives, so it’s something we’ve decided to delve into for these contests, at least.”

To achieve its anti-Trump goals, the group is running three ads:

  • one that features Mitt Romney,
  • one that emphasizes Trump’s past support for pro-choice policies,
  • a third that shows Melania Trump posing nude.

The Melania ad, which is by far the most provocative, invites viewers to meet “your next First Lady.” Mair said that one is being promoted on Instagram as well, but only to LDS women.

It is also the one that makes us wonder just what Mair et al were thinking: imagine if someone were to show naked photos of one of the other potential first ladies (or of Bill Clinton for that matter) - the media response would be loud, instant and piercing.

But the real question is just how badly will this approach backfire: it may come as a surprise to the organizers, but showing a naked Melania Trump, a successful, multi-lingual supermodel and undoubtedly the most attractive first lady America would ever have, is not exactly an attack ad, the moment men end up seeing the ad.

Here are the ads in question:

Romney

 

Pro-choice

 

And Melania naked

If anything, this ad could lead to a surprising last minute surge for Trump. And yes, if the democrats (and non-Trump republicans) want to desperately lose the national election, they should certainly show more naked photos of Melania Trump on social networks and/or TV.

I'm feeling a surge of sorts right now...

I'd vote for a man with a hot wife over a man with a wookie every time.

I think it would be great to have a classy First Lady after seven years of angry wookie.

Forward (over the cliff)!

Here they're spewing attack ads and the Donald today announced a seriously non-interventionist stay at home foreign policy and has likewise outlined serious policy positions on his website while the rest of the candidates behave like 3rd graders.
See, he's going to methodically transform into the only serious candidate with logical clear policies and no double talk back and forth I was for it before it before I was, etc.

She is soooo hot.  Lucky him.

With a wife like her, the Libtards insist Trump has an obsession with Stretched Face Megyn Kelly, LOL.

This is obviously to discourage Trump's gay supporters.

What about the Lesbian vote? I'll bet that Hitlery and friends would love to tongue her.

“Make America Awesome”

 

Holy Smokes.. If she does not make America awesome, I don’t know what does.

Trump has these bozos running in circles.

Hilarious commentary, which begs the question:

Are people of Slavic descent now causing even the far right nutcases around here to have creeping doubts about the Aryan female's supposed superiority?

You might want to watch out for that little AIDS thing, though.

Apparently I hit a nerve.

Consistency is certainly not a strong suit of ethnic nationalists.

Manthong's picture

No, just an insult to the collective intelligence.

Take your racism and shove it up your constricted sphincter.

 

oh, and BTW..

watch out for the anti-globalist, nationalist blowback.

 

Eirik Magnus Larssen's picture

To say you are clueless as to what racism is would be diplomatic.

But such is part & parcel of the "anti-white racism" myth which right-wing extremists propogate. They miscast systemic discrimination against people of color in society & media as isolated incidents that are not indicative of larger injustice, and seek to blur the distinction between a privileged group being "persecuted" & being asked to relinquish privileges they never should have had.

A pick-up in Montana is way moar American than a Prius in San Francisco.

Here’s a deal for you…

I will buy you a round trip ticket to Chicago Midway.

I will put you up in an infested fleabag near 63rd and Normal for a night with the caveat that you go out and bond with the lovable indigenous folk there for at least four hours after 8 PM at night.

There is plenty of booze, smack and whatever to spin your prop.

Then report to us.

I will stand off on the side with my HR video camera  (and CCW in case I become in fear for my life.. not yours).

Oh, but you will have to walk back all the way through ballerina Rahm's shooting gallery to the airport by yourself.

..the basa ball is in your court.

To paraphrase Hillary in her feigned ethnic twang " I am in no way an F'n racist".

..and BTW.. being of color is no help.

Let them have fuck up Mormon Utah. We are supposed to prefer Scissor Sister  Huma as a first lady? "Sister wives for Hilary" Superpac.

Hold on a second..

Are all Mormons asexual moronic prudes?

Any man (or woman for that matter) can appreciate the beauty of a highly attractive woman.

The skin was tastefully exposed and one might say artful.

A bit on the risqué side, yes..

But that kind of tension keeps the species alive.

Keep in mind the voting booth is a private place.

Trump might not lose Utah.

<<< Mormons consider this art

<<< Mormons considered this gay porn

Someone should ask Liz Mair if running smear tactics like this is how we "Make America Awesome". If so, I want no part of her "Awesome America". Neither should any Latter Day Saints.

ebear's picture

Missing the point. As a supermodel, she has no need of Trump's money nor he of hers. Whatever their reasons for being together, I'm sure money isn't one of them.

Squid-puppets a-go-go's picture

you misunderstand human nature. Empirical people are never satisfied, and will continue to seek ever more wealth. That is why we are in this stockholm syndrome-to-banksters depression in the first place.

TruthHunter's picture

That is why Republicans are just another branch of the free shit army.

They support policies that benefit the 1% in the vain hope they will make it there.

 

Up to 75% marginal tax tax rate for casino gamblers.

--> 0% for best job creators and innovators.

jeff montanye's picture

clearly the ad doesn't work as intended on the zh demographic but imo it might targeted to super straight women.  but of course in the internet age nothing stays on target for long, if it's interesting.

ads couldn't show naked pictures of bill clinton or mrs. sanders or mrs obama or . . .  because there aren't any in the public domain.  i think that's the message here.

however since hillary is an obvious beneficiary, cruz being a somewhat less overwhelming opponent, the question of a naked bill clinton is never far from the imagination of a significant slice of the population when they think of said first gentleman and his blue-dressed paramour.

where an attack ad fell very short imo is hillary's where trump is mocked for, essentially, listening to himself for advice rather than someone else (like michael blumenthal or mrs. anthony weiner for instance?).

Mrs. Anthony Winer is Hillarity's muff diver.

 

I guess that Cathy O'Brien got too old

 

But Hillary had a good time raping her when Cathy was a child.

 

Hillary is not just a lesbian but a child molester.

 what  - you mean she got sloppy seconds after Cheney was done

Manthong's picture

omg..

That special place in hell is to be condemned to a perpetual stifling face full of stanky Clintonion muff.

Heaven, on the other hand might involve a certain potential First Lady.

Ok, I need to get down in the gutter a bit because I am just a plebe, but…

The White House has not seen First Lady class and elegance so awesome since the youthful Jackie Kennedy.

Maybe she was putting up pretenses for the player, but she did it with grace.

And it's not like the Kennedys were an unknown quantity.

What happened to her after 1964 likely has some kind of a psychological explanation.

+1 for the intelligent comment. btw, I question the editorial ZH remark: "There is nothing wrong with attack ads"

seen from the other side of the pond, the US political system has way too many of them, fuelled by way too much money, all of course completely anonymous

what is the purpose of an attack ad? well, at the end, it's pure mudslinging. it distracts. particularly from the failings of the mudslingers

Cruz isn't a better presidential candidate because of naked pics of Melania Trump. and nobody suggested Melania Trump is keen on having a job at the White House beyond the role of "First Lady", which is completely cerimonial

methinks there is a lot that is wrong about attack ads... in excess. and there you have it: "moar, moar, moar is always better"

Citxmech's picture

Trump (or Banzi) needs to do a follow-up ad with a picture of Bill looking like a drunk letch with the caption: "'Do you want THIS GUY as your first lady?"
