If only TLP inserted "Donald Trumpstanza" in the ad.

FRONALD TOOMPF DESTROYED!!!1!!111!!!
Right wing conservative
Trump supporter
Anti socialist, communist, and all other leftists
orange man bad. diversity is our strength. real communism hasn’t been tried yet. the hong kong protestors are paid by the cia. antifa protestors are good, hong kong protestors are american bootlickers. China is a better alternative to America. uyghur genocide isn’t real, and it is western propaganda. Trump should not have killed Soleimani. gender is a social construct invented by white supremacists.

You mean the ones who all suddenly didn’t feel like protecting the 2nd amendment rights? Those guys? The guys who loudly say that they’d win a civil war but where nowhere to be seen for the past several months?

I've heard somewhere that Donald Trump has now promoted the use of Masks? Correct me if I'm wrong. I wonder if that'll increase his polls now.

It's basically all photo-ops stuff since he doesn't actually care about stopping the coronavirus. His best hope is for media outlets to say "Trump is wearing a mask! He deserves all the credit now!" while also hoping voters don't see through all the photo-ops stuff.

Certain that is some form of the photo op, but my best assumption is to increase his standing, though this is now a backflip. Not sure if it is true or not; the source I could find from the internet was from Australia's ABC website:

It’s true alright. Though I don’t know if his base will actually listen or will claim that Trump is being forced by the deep state or something

He’s recently said that the situation will get worse before it gets better. Now will his base listen?

Doubtful, if anything most of his hardcore devotees will think he betrayed them for the "evil liberal agenda"

They'll probably still vote for him though. However, I doubt this gains him many votes from people who weren't going to vote for him already.

Considering his already very crappy coronavirus response, that mask photo-op doesn't make up for the fact he ignored the problem for months on end and called the coronavirus a "Dem hoax."

This is what happens when you elect a reality show personality to be President.
After most of the hour is over, TV Trump finally becomes keen to wearing a mask and things are all better.
Cue the closing credits.

Just because you haven't heard it doesn't mean it's propaganda, the fuck?

Here's where he called the stuff around the early Coronavirus just something to slander him with, making himself the center of a global pandemic which led to... this.

I don't trust the American media in general at this point. Australian media here is unironically more trustworthy, hell at this point state-owned media is more trustworthy

Imagine being this intellectually lazy. You are literally denying video proof because of the website it was posted on. Absurd.

Here's the same exact clip, but from a British news agency's YT channel, which is better I guess?
