Geez, were the Trump campaign folks unable to find a photo from the US protests that they had to use one showing a Ukraine policeman attacked.

Again, this shows a total lack of respect for Americans.

The message is obvious: Vote for Trump and he will fight for law and order in Ukraine.

      1. I approve of the ad too in a sense.

        The image may be a stock image of violence against police but the point that violence is being perpetrated against policemen is true, even if you don’t have a good photo to use.

    1. Your sarcasm is misplaced. I specifically said it was the Trump campaign.

      But, gee whiz, a Ukraine protest was the best they could do? Did Giuliani get a good deal on usage fees for the image while hustling business in Ukraine?

      Irony is where we find it.

    2. Because the Trump campaign didn’t want to use photos of Trump’s storm troopers attacking American citizens.

      A photo of the tear gassed Mayor of Portland would have been perfect. (Sarcasm warning)

      1. RE: “Hey, it’s pretty funny.”

        You didn’t say it was funny. You said it “shows a total lack of respect for Americans.”

        In my career as a proposal writer, I was frequently embarrassed by inadvertent photo errors. I didn’t think it was inherently funny, especially that time my graphics artist used a Soviet sub on the cover of a proposal for a U.S. submarine program. Thank goodness we caught the mistake at final review, but I’m still smarting from the beating I took.
