Trump refused to take the threat of the coronavirus seriously, now he won’t take responsibility as his administration has been totally unprepared for this crisis. pic.twitter.com/Jdh1GY9HHS

I’ve worked on 3 presidential campaigns and have a decent sense of where the line is - there is no case for taking this down - it’s literally Trumps own words - in fact, you could cut a NEW one after each WH briefing with Trumps disinformation and defiance of science
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
So everyone let’s retweet the ad and email it to friends.
 
Ha! Go fuck yourselves.
 
The ad contains only the recorded words of the president. What is the basis of their complaint?
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Priorities USA responds:
 
It's literally just his words accurately cross-referenced with the point in the spread of the pandemic.
 
Which is ridiculous, because the ad consists virtually entirely of ridiculous things *Trump* said.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
How dare they put out an ad that actually uses Trump’s real words!
 
This is a brilliant strategy by the Trump campaign to get this TV ad millions of dollars worth of earned media.
 
Definitely sounds like something we shouldn't share widely on social media then.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Nothing inaccurate in the ad. If they get it taken down, that's against the 1st Amendment, nothing in it is wrong or unfair.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
If Trump's trying to suppress it, then we know: 1. It's very persuasive. 2. It's 100% accurate.
 
Trump and his allies will wage a relentless campaign to convince people that he did not say the things that he actually said about COVID-19 in January and February. His presidency depends upon a rejection of objective reality.
 
Trump campaign issues a cease & desist for what ad? This ad?!👇🏽👇🏽?
 
This left wing political correctness is getting out of control
 
Trump campaign apparently missing the irony in insisting that Trump's own spoken words are not true.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Trump really thinks this is Russia. Facts are facts and an ad that shows facts should absolutely be allowed to be aired. This authoritarian trying to suppress information
 
This is yet another meritless attempt by the Trump campaign to silence speech that's protected under the First Amendment.
 
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
The ad consists entirely of things Trump said in public. Perhaps it would behoove him to stop saying stupid things in public then.
 
Everyone - Trump doesn’t want people to see this ad. Please share it widely. Let’s be the tv signal he’s trying to snuff out.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
America will be sending a cease and desist to the Trump badministration on November 3rd.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
This ad should be on every channel, everyday, every half hour!
 
Oh, geez, I wonder why Trump doesn't want this ad aired? I think we should all retweet it so we can ponder that question.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Truth deserves amplification. 📣📣📣📣📣📣📣📣📣twitter.com/prioritiesusa/…
 
 
I suppose it was inevitable they’d end up taking legal action over recordings of him actually speaking. But it’s still startling.
 
 
The Trump-FOX-GOP does not understand the First Amendment.

They think free speech only applies to hate speech and right-wing lies.

I assume (hope) the TV stations will not pull the ad.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
The ad is obviously protected by the First Amendment. The letter is frivolous.
 
Based on what? That it's bad for him? That his record and his statements should be off limits?
 
Definitely don’t watch and share this ad. It is very upsetting to Trump.
 
 
Who cares. The dead will speak with a voice that silences any campaign nonsense.
 
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
It is a devastating ad but tragically, it's factual. There is nothing he can call "fake news", it is all him.
 
It’s a devastating ad. They know it.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
 
Trump has released a cease and desist letter against the words coming out of his own mouth. Pass it on.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
How dare they quote him?
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Welcome to the 1st Amendment Fella's. Ya know, That Other Amendment ya always Holler about.😜🇺🇸
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
What is a "cease and desist order" from a campaign regarding a public figure?
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
I thought they argued that ads like this were free speech
 
So...we should most definitely not retweet it because it would be rude to retweet it...So we’re all on the same page about not retweeting this ad. Wait...so are we retweeting this or are we not retweeting it.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
How dare you use my own words against me!
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
It would be a shame if folks screen-grabbed it and spread it all over Twitter and Facebook. pic.twitter.com/xZWyDVX73c
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
 
Apparently, that ad drew blood
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
LOLOLOL Good! More ads like this one!
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
That ad’s a killer and Trump knows it.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Let's share this a lot.
 
But he can talk shit, all day, every day. Got it.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Trump campaign doesn’t want anyone using tRump’s words against him! DON’T RETWEET THIS! Trumps won’t like it!
 
How can you demand people take down an ad that is nothing but actual video clips of you saying things?
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Outstanding commercial ! The President who is a liar, is upset. LOL.
 
The ad is obviously protected by the First Amendment. The letter is frivolous.
 
Definitely don't share this ad because @realDonaldTrump wants it taken down...
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Time for the next one. We may need a next ad every few days for the foreseeable future.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Well, luckily the Trump campaign doesn’t get to demand that adds not get Sean. It kind of violates the First Amendment
 
This is a really frightening effort to censor core political speech. The Trump campaign is blatantly seeking to silence criticism of the president as the election ramps up. It‘s what a dictator would do.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Another frivolous-lawsuit-to-be by thin skinned @realDonaldTrump.
 
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
"It's a hoax! It's all a Democratic Hoax, all unleased by Democrats in Wuhan, China, to steal an election from me! FROM ME !!! Many people are saying the numbers of CoronaVirus victims aren't bigly, and will magically disappear, in a few days. Believe me 100%...!" pic.twitter.com/znJSF6H0b5
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
It must be effective if they want it taken down soooooo badly.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Trump has taken being a political whining snowflake to a whole new level of absurdity. Once again he chooses to ignore 1st Amendment when it involves others speaking TRUTH about him. The lawsuit threat is NOT meant to actually cite legal precedent to win- it's SLAPP INTIMIDATION.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
We are not only battling a pandemic but we’re also battling against a morally corrupted and bankrupt, incompetent, gaslighting moron who doesn’t give a damn about human life. Every word of that ad is true. It’s called Freedom of Speech in the Constitution.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
By all means, let’s share the heck out of this ad then
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Lol, playing his own words back to him #Triggered 😆
 
Trump is demanding this truthful ad be pulled

So you know what to do, right?

RT the hell out of it
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
why? There is not one lie or distortion in that ad. They are quoting the Dotard's own words.
 
Goons have never understood the Streisand effect
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Why? It is his actual words.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
It's his own words. I'm sure a judge will throw it out.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Trump's been sending cease-and-desist letters to anyone who publicly criticizes him for his entire public life. It's part of his lifetime of abuse of our legal system
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
A lot of people are saying this is the best campaign ad they’ve seen in a long time. Unprecedented. That’s what I heard. People like it. Alot.
 
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
can you pay for some spots? Please.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
We have Trump on tape saying it was a hoax
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
They better refuse -- let them take it to court and prove whats wrong with this ad. And in the meantime, the media needs to make this public -- the ad & his response to the ad
 
Die Trump-Wahlkampfzentrale hat ein Unterlassungsverlangen an Fernsehsender verschickt. Sie sollen einen demokratischen Wahlkampfspot nicht senden dürfen, der Zitate von #Trump zu #Corona aneinander reiht.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
So what you’re telling me is I should download this ad and spread it everywhere?
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
His own words..the facts about the numbers....nothing fake about it
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Good luck with that. Truth is an absolute defense.
 
The Trump Campaign clearly doesn't want anyone in America to see this ad.

I repeat: They desperately DON'T WANT THIS AD TO BE SHARED and viewed widely.

So you might want to RT it.
 
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
The first paragraph of the cease and desist is incorrect. It is NOT false or misleading. It is provable fact. So, to Donny's lawyers... pic.twitter.com/IM2TtRfdBD
 
Question: how does that work if the ad is literally just audio clips of Trump speaking to the public? They are his words, verbatim. What is their argument here?
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Did the stations respond with a copy of the Citizens United decision?
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Why. It’s an ad of his own words.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
The ad is accurate. Trump said these things on those dates. When the truth gets suppressed we are living in a dictatorship with Trump at the wheel. The press should ask Trump about his claim that this virus is a Dem Hoax. I bet he would attack the reporter. pic.twitter.com/SsZfBkkex5
 
They’re trying to stop an ad that consists of his own quotes. Really.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
It’s his own words for pity’s sake.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
The ad is accurate. The letter is full of lies.
 
Please, people: no one should watch this ad until this important legal dispute is settled
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
So he wants to sue stations for showing his own statements in the timeframes he said them? A suit only Kavanaugh, Thomas and Roberts could go for.
 
On the grounds of it being very unfair and nasty?
 
And it's literally just his words that came out of his mouth.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
 
PLEASE RT this. AND the tweet it quotes with the video.
 
In reply to @sahilkapur
Hahahahahahahha. Truth hurts. But then again, so does contracting and dying of a virus that could have been mitigated by responsible leadership. Bravo, @prioritiesUSA.
