The lines between parody and politics have become so blurred that bad SNL sketches are becoming legitimate political advertisements against presidential nominee and 70-year-old chicken nugget Donald Trump.
The Americans Against Insecure Billionaires With Tiny Hands PAC is a real political action committee that accepts donations on its website. It calls on Donald Trump to release official measurements on his tiny hands. Politics.
Here is the ad, which has been airing around Washington D.C., apparently:
The 28-year-old Portland man behind the advertisement explained why he made it to KATU:
A Portland man who created the “Trump Has Tiny Hands” PAC has released a new ad calling for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to “Release The Measurements.”
Harry Kraemer, 28, started the PAC earlier this year but he was forced to change the name to “Americans Against Insecure Billionaires With Tiny Hands.”
Kraemer has told KATU the money raised by the PAC was going to be used to make advertisements online and on air “to ensure the maximum number of Americans know about Mr. Trump’s tiny little baby hands,” Kraemer explained.
As of yesterday, the PAC has raised close to $2,000. I’m sure that number will grow, just like Colbert’s SuperPAC did in 2012 when he ran for president of South Carolina. Man, It’s a shame The Colbert Report and The Daily Show With Jon Stewart aren’t around for this election to satirize the absurdity. John Oliver is fine, but nothing will ever live up to that gold standard ever again.
How will the Trump campaign respond? Could this kind of bad press derail the chances of America’s first deflated basketball as president? I’m excited to see what more comes of this..
