A new 15-second spot from Donald Trump takes aim at President Obama, using his own words about going to see the new “Star Wars” movie to suggest his focus is on the film, and not on fighting terrorism.
The clip, posted to the GOP presidential candidate’s Facebook page on Tuesday, begins with the statement “We are in a serious war” before showing news footage of the recent terrorists attacks at home and abroad. The footage stops to show the next statement: “Our president is busy with another war.”
Cut to Obama from the White House briefing room telling reporters, “Okay everybody, I got to get to ‘Star Wars’!”
The Obamas hosted a screening of the movie in the White House private theater, with First Lady Michele Obama greeting children of Gold Star families, an organization founded in 2005 by individuals who lost family members in the Iraq War.
