VoteVets and the Lincoln Project collaborate on one of the most devastating Trump videos yet

While the Lincoln Project continues to line its organizers’ pockets, the silver-lining of the PAC is that they have been very prodigious in their video output. More specifically, their videos are attacks on Donald Trump and his record and how awful he is. This relentless barrage of fact has allowed Vice President Joe Biden the opportunity to run a campaign that does not rely on what the traditional media would likely call “negative ads.” I say that with a pinch of salt because Donald Trump’s entire existence is negative, from start to finish, and the facts are the facts.

The newest video put out in collaboration with VoteVets.org tells the very simple story of retired Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and the bullying and threats he and his family received for bravely testifying about Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani’s involvement in trying to coerce a foreign power to create the illusion of criminal impropriety in political rival Joe Biden’s record. The video shows Rachel Vindman, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s wife, and their family talking about their experience on the righteous end of an authoritarian and corrupt president’s anger.

Vindman’s wife speaks for most the video, calmly explaining that she has already gotten a phone call no military spouse ever wants to get: the one when her husband Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was injured in action. Very quickly, they show footage of Lt. Col. Vindman bravely testifying, not sitting on a book advance like galactic-level piece of shit John Bolton.

You might remember this part of Vindman’s testimony, where he addressed his own father, telling him “Do not worry, I will be fine for telling the truth.”

Rachel then says that, “The first time I felt threatened was just after Alex’s testimony.” From here we cut to Trump and his press secretary’s attacks and dismissive statements regarding the Lt. Col. Mrs. Vindman goes on, “The most powerful man in the world came after our family. But what happened to us can happen to anyone.”

She goes on to say that her family received “thousands of letters of support. America is so much better than Donald Trump.” It’s simple and true and to the point. Finally, Lt. Col. Vindman himself speaks, saying “This is America.This is the country I’ve served and defended. Here, right matters.”
