National File: A former Mitt Romney staffer turned Congressional candidate who is backed by disgraced anti-Trump Republican Liz Cheney posted a photoshopped image of himself beside the 45th President in a seemingly desperate effort to tie his own bid for office to the extremely popular Donald Trump, who his own backers and bosses tried to remove from office.
In a recent Jim Bognet for Congress campaign ad run on social media, Bognet digitally altered images of himself and President Donald Trump, in a process colloquially referred to as photoshopping, to display himself next to the 45th President with a message that implies President Trump has offered Bognet his support.
Specifically, Bognet’s ad contains the words “I’ve heard good things, Jim” written above President Trump’s head. In the campaign ad, the phrase doesn’t even include quotation marks, seeming to indicate that the compliment from President Trump is as fake as Bognet’s doctored photograph.
Users who click on the Bognet campaign ad are directed to the webpage of WinRed, the controversial GOP fundraising site pushed by establishment Republicans that has been accused of using deceptive tactics to fleece Republican voters. more
SNIP: Speaking of GOP fundraisers… I guess by now we all know we should never give money to any GOP or RNC fundraisers but if you do happen to get an envelope begging for cash, do like the kids do and use a Sharpie to leave a personal message for Ronna McDaniel. I had to do it a few times, but they finally got the message and took me of the list.
