In the latest round of Joe vs. Donald, the Biden campaign has released a devastating ad calling Trump “too scared, too small, too weak”. It has already had two million views.

Donald Trump is very generous when it comes to providing campaign material for his opponents.


The gloves are off

"Too scared, too small, too weak": Blistering new viral Biden ad shreds Trump for his failure to lead 1


“Deer in the Headlights Pt 2” is a sequel. The first ad focused on the President’s response to the coronavirus. It compared Trump to a startled deer, frozen in the headlights.

The new ad goes for the jugular. The narrator attacks Trump for being ‘paralyzed with fear’ by protests. Instead of facing the people, he hid ‘in his bunker.’ The video focuses on the President’s response to the George Floyd protests. Floyd was the unarmed black man who died in the custody of the Minneapolis police.

Around the world and the nation, hundreds of thousands of people of all races, ethnicities, and backgrounds have stood up and marched and united in outrage against police brutality and racial injustice.

Not everyone: the 45th President of the United States hid in his bunker.

Round One: ‘Too Weak to Lead’ Trump hides in a bunker

As protestors approached the White House, Donald and Melanie Trump hid in the security bunker, to “inspect it” according to the President.

The new ad opens by introducing Donald Trump: “Too scared to face the people, too weak to lead”. It then cut to footage of indignant Americans calling for justice. The effect is devastating. The ad quotes Forbes as saying: “Trump Hid From Protests In Underground Bunker”. On May 29, the President took his family down to the emergency White House bunker as protestors demonstrated outside the house gates. Trump claimed this was to carry out a bunker inspection (with his wife and son).

Attorney-General William Barr later contradicted this claim saying: “things were so bad that the Secret Service recommended that the president go down to the bunker.”

Round Two: Trump’s butchered photo op

In the ad, the narrator continues to explain that “afraid to look too weak”, the President has “tear gas and flash grenades used on peaceful protestors.” On June 1, the President’s security personnel made a path for Donald Trump to get to his photoshoot by using “chemical agents” (tear gas) and rubber bullets on the crowd. William Barr gave the order.

Trump was on his way to a disastrous photo op in which he posed in front of the Ashburton House, the parish house of St. John’s Episcopal Church. The Bishop of Washington D.C. was “outraged” by the photo op. She pointed out the President had not asked permission to use the Church “as a prop”. She told CNN:

“Let me be clear, the president just used a Bible, the most sacred text of the Judeo-Christian tradition, and one of the churches of my diocese, without permission, as a backdrop for a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus,”

Amused critics on Twitter pointed out he was holding the Bible upside down.

Round 3: the triple whammy — too scared, small and weak

The narrator wonders “Where is Donald Trump?” when the “cries for justice grow.” The ad ends by summing up the three memorable qualities of the President, he is too:

scared to meet the people
small to meet the moment
weak to lead

It ends by acknowledging the ad was “Paid for by Joe Biden”, a reminder that when it comes to their leader, the American people have a choice.
