NBC Airs Racist Anti-Immigrant Trump Campaign Commercial

Unsurprisingly, Trump's reelection campaign manager, Brad Parscale, was none too pleased.

Trump's reelection campaign didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment. The ad, endorsed by President Donald Trump, was created to fire up fears of a migrant caravan headed toward the United States in advance of Tuesday's midterm elections.

A reporter pointed out that "a lot of people" thought "that ad was offensive", and asked what he was trying to achieve with it. The ad ended with a message: "Stop the caravan".

NBC's decision to run the ad in the first place was criticized on Twitter, most notably by Hollywood personalities like Judd Apatow and Debra Messing.

The backlash against President Trump's anti-illegal immigration ad linking the approaching caravan with a cop killer has become so severe that CNN refused to air it, later prompting both Fox News and NBC to pull it after airing.

And I've always been interested in what's going on out there, you know, whether or not there is contact with the wider world. Later we learn that Shane is actually Judith's father, so a small part of Shane continues to live on long after his death.

"After further review we recognise the insensitive nature of the ad and have made a decision to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible", an NBC spokesperson said.

NBCUniversal is pulling a controversial Trump campaign commercial from rotation on its networks after it sparked criticism while appearing during "Sunday Night Football". I guess they only run fake news and won't talk about real threats that don't suit their agenda.

The 30-second spot includes footage of Luis Bracamontes, an undocumented immigrant from Mexico citizen sentenced to death in April for killing two police officers in California in 2014. "President Trump and his allies will protect our border and keep our families safe". It is akin to blaming Republicans for criminals who entered the country illegally under Presidents Trump or George W. Bush.

"CNN has made it abundantly clear in its editorial coverage that this ad is racist".

"This ad violates Facebook's advertising policy against sensational content so we are rejecting it", a Facebook spokesman told The Daily Beast. "While the video is allowed to be posted on Facebook, it can not receive paid distribution".
