It seems foolish to expect anything else, but Donald Trump’s first official television advertisement hits all the ridiculous notes we’d expect it to.
Primarily focusing on his penchant for xenophobia and impossible solutions, a solemn narrator (usually saved for disaster movie trailers) emphasizes Trump’s plans for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the country, vows to “cut the head off ISIS,” and, of course, ends with his favorite idea to build a wall and somehow make Mexico pay for it.
"I am very proud of this ad, I don't know if I need it, but I don't want to take any chances because if I win we are going to make America great again," said Trump in a statement. He plans on running the ad in Iowa (whose primary is on February 1st) and New Hampshire; apparently there are six to eight more equally delightful ads in the mix, just waiting to be released to the public.
