Hillary is getting desperate. They are putting a lot of time and energy into attacks that are really weak tea. Political attacks and ads are like telling jokes – if you have to explain it then it isn’t funny. A good joke bypasses logic and reason and goes straight for the funny bone.
The most effective political attacks deliver an emotional gut-punch. LBJ’s “Daisy” ad is a classic example. The people who will react emotionally to the “birther” attacks on Donald Trump were never gonna vote for him anyway. The average voter doesn’t know what birtherism is. Even worse (for Hillary), most people don’t really care.
Very few people have ever heard of Pepe the Frog. To use him against Trump you first have to explain who Pepe is, why he is allegedly bad, and what he has to do with Donald Trump.
Like I said, weak tea.
