Club For Growth Gets Ripped By Facebook Fans After Running Ad Campaign Against Trump [Video]

This is just despicable. The Club for Growth has launched a $1 million advertising campaign to take down Donald Trump. It’s filled with lies and misleading propaganda. Yep, Trump did say some of that, but he has changed his stance as so many of us have. The Club for Growth would rather have a died-in-the-red real Progressive like Jeb Bush, the Joyful Tortoise, in the White House. No thank you. The RINOs and elitists are absolutely terrified of Donald Trump. Notice the rage and new-found hate of those that were fans of The Club for Growth on Facebook. That backfired big time.

Trump Club for Growth

From USA Today:

WASHINGTON – The political arm of the anti-tax Club for Growth on Tuesday announced a hard-hitting $1 million advertising campaign against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump — the first major attempt by an outside group to confront the brash billionaire and his unconventional campaign.

The Club for Growth Action’s ads, which will start running Thursday in the early caucus state of Iowa, is the latest salvo in the increasingly bitter feud between the organization and Trump, the celebrity developer who has demonstrated staying power atop the polls. It comes on the eve of the second televised debate of the Republican presidential primary on Wednesday in southern California.

“Donald Trump is the worst Republican candidate on economic issues,” said David McIntosh, a former Indiana congressman who serves as the club’s president. “It’s astonishing that he’s even running as a Republican.”

In two, 30-second ads, the club highlights Trump past support for liberal policies, such as a single-payer health insurance system.

“Trump wants us to think he’s Mr. Tell It Like It Is,” the narrator in one of the ads intones. “But he has a record, and it’s very liberal. He really is just playing us for chumps.”

McIntosh said the group is likely to spend more against Trump. The 2016 election marks the first time the Club for Growth has engaged in the presidential primary.

The group, which usually puts its political muscle behind fiscal conservatives who back their lower-tax, small-government agenda, initially said it would ignore Trump’s candidacy, dismissing the former reality TV star as an entertainer. The group, however, has stepped up its criticism as Trump has risen in the polls, lambasting his tax plans and his use of eminent-domain laws as a developer.

Last month, the Club for Growth PAC announced plans to steer its members’ contributions to five White House contenders — former Florida governor Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

The advertising blitz comes from the Club’s super PAC arm whose biggest donors this year include Illinois businessman Richard Uihlein. Uihlein and his family also have contributed $2.5 million to a super PAC backing Walker’s White House campaign.

Earlier this week, Trump, anticipating the Club’s advertising, warned on Twitter that his rivals’ biggest supporters are “trying to do damage.”

“They will fail!” he tweeted. “Money down the drain!”

On Tuesday, Trump took to Twitter again to say the Club had targeted him because he refused to donate to the group.

So far, other Republican-aligned outside groups — including Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, affiliated with billionaire industrialist Charles Koch — have steered clear of targeting Trump, instead focusing on boosting other candidates that they view as more viable general-election candidates.

Idaho businessman Frank VanderSloot, who was a major contributor to a pro-Mitt Romney super PAC in the 2012 presidential race, said he’s providing financial support to three GOP candidates right now: Rubio, Walker and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.

VanderSloot praised Trump’s business acumen and blunt talk on the campaign trail. But, he said, “nobody would suggest that Donald Trump cares about anyone but Donald Trump. When a leader only cares about himself that’s inherently dangerous.”

“My hope is … by the time primaries roll around, people will have figured out Donald Trump,” he said.

The advertising is escalating in the presidential contest.

A super PAC supporting Bush’s candidacy is starting a $24 million ad campaign this week in Iowa and New Hampshire — followed later by ads in South Carolina — to boost the former Florida governor, who has slid in recent polls.

They just don’t get it and I don’t think these inside the beltway boys ever will. People don’t care what party Trump was with or what his old viewpoints were. They care about what he stands for today and what he will do. We have been led by feckless losers for far too long who have taken us down the path to defeat and communism. Trump will handle illegal immigration, jobs and our military – all things that conservatives and Americans in general are clamoring for. Jeb Bush will give us more of the same as will most of the others. The exceptions to that are Ted Cruz and Ben Carson. These buffoons are only going to make Trump more popular. I bet he loves the free advertising. Keep it up fellas… you are going to disparage Trump right into the White House.
