Trump's Racist Ad Depicts Wrong Country

Aside from nativist overtones, Donald Trump's first campaign TV ad has one big problem: the border footage they use to portray the ills of "illegal immigration" in the United States in fact shows people rushing over a border in Morocco, according to Politifact. The footage, which shows people streaming over a fence, is from the Italian television network RepubblicaTV. "No shit it's not the Mexican border but that's what our country is going to look like if we don't do anything," Trump's campaign manager told NBC in response to the fact-check.

Five months ago, Trump's campaign tweeted an image of him overlayed with an American flag and soldiers who, upon closer inspection, turned out to be Nazi Waffen-SS soldiers. Rather than respond "No shit," however, the campaign blamed the incident on an intern.
