Democrats Launch Biden-Focused Ads on Milwaukee Buses Ahead of Republican Convention


July 9 :
Before next week's Republican convention in Milwaukee, Democrats in the United States are putting ads on hundreds of buses. The majority of the ads include photos of Joe Biden, the president, taken from a popular internet meme, which he is using to try to save his re-election campaign.

During the Democratic National Convention, which takes place from July 15th to the 18th, over fifty buses will be adorned with advertisements, according to the party. At the convention, Biden's opponent Donald Trump will formally be named the Republican Party's candidate for president in the November 5 election.

The Democrats' statement comes amid calls for Biden to step aside following a weak debate performance that has spurred questions about his mental fitness. It is not unprecedented for political parties to launch such an ad campaign around a rival convention, though.

A request for an instant response regarding the timing of the ad campaign's planning was not promptly addressed by the DNC.

Although Biden easily defeated Trump in the more liberal Milwaukee by a margin of nearly 60%, he only managed to win Wisconsin by a razor-thin margin of less than 21,000 votes out of 3.2 million. In this year's election, Wisconsin is thought to play a crucial role as a battleground state.

Ads highlight Trump's recent conviction—who, according to media sources, only weeks ago referred to Milwaukee as a "horrible city" at a closed door meeting—and the right to abortion, as well as efforts to reduce the cost of prescription drugs.

The statement was mischaracterized, according to Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung. Trump was referring to "terrible crime and voter fraud."

The commercials show Biden peering into the camera with red eyes, evoking the "Dark Brandon" meme. This meme originated on the right as a way to accuse Biden of being involved in conspiracy theories, but it has since been used by Democrats to rally support for Biden.

Come on, Jack. One advertisement claims, "I'm bringing Roe back," alluding to the Supreme Court's 2022 decision to reverse the historic Roe v. Wade decision, which had upheld women's constitutional right to abortion. Three of the justices selected by Trump are conservatives, making up the court's majority.

The preservation of our democracy, along with safeguards for basic liberties, healthcare, reasonably priced pharmaceuticals, and well-paying employment, will be included in this year's ballot, according to Rosemary Boeglin, communications director for the Democratic National Committee. The committee's own convention is scheduled to be held in Chicago in August. Joe Biden, the current president, is the only candidate who can guarantee their safety.
