This Democrat Candidate’s Campaign Ad is…Well..Awkward, But It’s Also Hilarious

Published

It’s getting closer and closer to election season here in the good ole U.S. of A, and that means hilariously cheesy and really poorly done campaign advertisements from both parties will be assaulting your eyeballs every five minutes on practically every channel you watch.

While there’s sure to be no shortage of entertaining commercials from candidates looking to connect with voters and persuade them to support them come November, there’s one in particular that might just be the worst ad ever created in the history of American politics.

You might think this is hyperbole, but it’s not.

In the ad, Richard Painter, who spent two years as President George W. Bush’s chief ethics lawyer before switching parties, stands before an actual fire in a dumpster. Painter, deadpan and often grimacing through the painful script, says he’s running for office to extinguish the “dumpster” fire raging in Washington, D.C. (Forget that fires don’t often rage in swamps, Painter’s off with his metaphor.)

“Some people see a dumpster fire and do nothing but watch the spectacle,” he says, squinting into the camera. “Some are too scared to face the danger, or they think it will benefit them if they just let it keep on burning.’

“Others shrug,” he says (cue candidate to raise shoulders) “and say, ‘All this talk about dumpster fires, it’s just fake news!’

Big finish: “There is an inferno raging in Washington. But here in the land of 10,000 lakes [cue awkward emphatic arm gesture as water is dumped on the dumpster], we know how to put out a fire.”

Here’s the full ad. You’re welcome:

As you’ve probably guessed by now, social media is having an absolute blast with this:

Yeah, these tweets pretty much say everything that needs to be said about this mess.

If this guy’s policies are half as bad as his commercial, he should just bow out now. Like right now.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
