There have been hundreds of dazzling anti-Trump ads released this election season. With November 3 just around the corner, here are our picks for the top ten viral videos of the election season.

Check them out!

The Lincoln Project: ‘Mourning in America’

The 60-second spot opens with the phrase “There’s mourning in America.” It covers the statistics of infections, deaths, and job loss caused by the virus ending a declaration that the country is “weaker, sicker, poorer” since Trump took office.

MeidasTouch: ‘Trump Golfs You Die”

If 100,000 of your nation’s people are dead and you are its leader, you should be breaking out in a cold sweat, right? Well, Trump had warmer plans — like hitting the golf course.

Progressive video producers MeidasTouch outed Trump’s lies and hypocrisy in a viral video, which now has more than 1.47 million views.

Twitter users were outraged that he was spending taxpayers’ dollars on his extracurricular activity while thousands died. The hashtag #TrumpGolfsYouDie started trending soon after the ad was uploaded.

Lincoln Project: ‘America or Trump

As protests following the death of George Floyd rocked the nation for the sixth consecutive day, Americans had seen a lot — including their president’s non-response.

However, the NeverTrump-Republican group, The Lincoln Project, offered their own  blistering response in an ad they released Wednesday, “America OR Trump.”

The narrator in the 60-second spot says:

When Donald Trump came out of hiding this week, he didn’t do it to bring us together or heal the nation. He wasn’t there to offer words of calm and comfort. Instead, he became what we always feared, evoked the worst of our past, threatened our governors and states.

The ad continues, summing up everything that Trump had done and said — threatening to deploy the military if the governors of states didn’t quell the protests and ordering soldiers that fought in Iraq and Afghanistan “to turn against Americans.”

The ad also called him out for desecrating the place of worship and for using the Bible as a political prop.

It concludes with a clear question — “America or Trump?”

MeidasTouch: ‘Declare Independence from Trump’

The first, which was released on the 4th of July, is entitled “Will YOU Declare Independence From Trump?” It uses audio from a JFK speech with voiceovers of various presidents being sworn into office, but it then cleverly cuts between these proud moments with gut-wrenching footage from the last few months.

The word “life” is juxtaposed with people dying from coronavirus, “liberty” is stamped over footage of the police abusing demonstrators, and “happiness” is contrasted with the unemployment lines.

The video packs a powerful punch.

An RVAT parody

The ad was a modified version of a Team Trump ad, in which a woman holds up placards explaining why she will not be voting for Biden. By simply changing the words on each sign, the ad was transformed into a brutal anti-Trump message.

Team Trump effectively handed Republicans Voting Against Trump the president’s head on a platter.

Noam Chomsky

World-renowned scientist and philosopher Noam Chomsky lays it out in no uncertain terms: Trump is the “worst person in the world” to lead if we are to combat the “impending catastrophic climate disaster.” This is not your usual anti-trump ad.

Chomsky lays out reasons to vote for Joe Biden and gives a quick but powerful lesson in how we keep on after election day to get out of the mess we’re in. “We have until 2030 to avoid catastrophe.”

RVAT and Elizabeth Neumann

In a candid spot, former Homeland Security assistant secretary Elizabeth Neumann was clear in condemning her former boss. “Does the president’s rhetoric make your job harder?” is a question Neumann says she hears a lot. “And the answer is, ‘yes!’”

Neumann sees Trump’s rhetoric as a threat to American national security. “We started to see the rise of the white supremacist agenda,” she said. “The president’s actions and his language are in fact racist,” and, “gave permission to white supremacists to think that what they were doing was permissible.”

MeidasTouch: ‘End the Chaos’

“We’ve all been through a lot together,” said Trump as images of Americana flashed by. “It’s the beauty of everything and how it represents our country.” Empty stadiums, police cars, closed signs, and patients on ventilators are shown as Trump continues, “We are making progress and doing things for our great people that everybody said couldn’t be done.”

Protestors march by, chanting “Vote him out!”

 Biden Campaign’s cheeky ad

At a rally in Fayetteville, NC, Trump made some statements that would come back to bite him. He called Joe Biden “the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics.” When the crowd egged him on, he said, “If I lose to him, I don’t know what I’m going to do. I will never speak to you again . . . . You’ll never see me again.”

The Biden campaign jumped on this statement, making the shortest, pithiest ad possible.

MeidasTouch: ‘End Trump’s Hate’

“Proud Boys, stand back and stand by.” The words uttered by Trump at the first debate sent waves of outrage and anger throughout the nation. Four ads released on the day afterward were able to capitalize on that anger.

In the MeidasTouch video, “End Trump’s Hate,” the reactions from the Proud Boys online were shown, as they cheered for the statement Trump gave them at the debate. Clips from white supremacist riots in Charlottesville and other parts of the country were juxtaposed to “Stand back and stand by.”

Election Day is almost upon us. If you haven’t voted yet, it is time to make sure that your voice is heard.
