Oh that one is definitely going to leave a mark!

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is getting hit by members of his own party in a new TV ad airing Thursday in Washington D.C., and in his home state.
The spot urges voters to call McConnell and demand a vote on the election security bills he blocked last week. It also features a supercut of President Donald Trump dismissing the well-documented threat of election interference from Russia.
The ad also contains comments by Trump in which he not only claims Russia isn’t a threat, but admits he’d take dirt on a rival if Moscow offered it.
“It’s not an interference,” Trump said in an ABC interview in June. “They have information. I think I’d take it.”
The ad will run on “Morning Joe” on MSNBC and during “Fox & Friends” on Fox News in D.C. (the latter is known to be one of Trump’s favorite shows).
I would be ineterested to know if these commercials are having any impact on hardline Fox News viewers or if their cognitive dissonance is so severe that it simply cannot penetrate.
They are powerful commercials that’s for sure, so I imagine that there are at least a few casual Fox viewers who are having the scales drop from their eyes.
Don’t you think?
