Anti-Trump Republicans Compare Disastrous Tulsa Rally To 'Jurassic Park' In Brutal New Ad

Donald Trump's June 20 rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma dominated headlines before, during and after it occurred. Each time for different reasons.

Now a searing new political ad revels in the event's noticeably low turnout.

The President's first large rally in months did not go as planned. Days before, Trump boasted that he gave out over a million tickets to the event.

But according to the Tulsa Fire Department, only 6,200 people attended the rally.

Of course, that was music to some people's ears. Many enjoyed watching the President's enthusiasm deflate, and they made the memes to prove it.

Then one political group took things a step beyond memes and produced a 41 second advertisement.

The ad's first half featured video footage of a very confident Donald Trump walking to the helicopter that went on to cart him to Tulsa, all shown while the triumphant Jurassic Park theme music played.

The ad then took a turn, cutting to the video footage of Donald Trump returning to Washington after the event, hanging his head as he descended the steps of the helicopter, backed by a much feebler rendition of that same Jurassic Park theme.

The ad was put together by The Lincoln Project, a group of current and former Republican strategists whose primary goal is to remove President Trump from office.

Their mission, as stated on the website, plainly lays out the group's priorities.

"Our Mission—Defeat President Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box."
"We do not undertake this task lightly nor from ideological preference. Our many policy differences with national Democrats remain. However, the priority for all patriotic Americans must be a shared fidelity to the Constitution and a commitment to defeat those candidates who have abandoned their constitutional oaths, regardless of party."
"Electing Democrats who support the Constitution over Republicans who do not is a worthy effort."

Many people on Twitter loved the creative approach to Trump-bashing.




Some offered other similar anti-Trump creations to the conversation.



All of these recent satisfied responses to Trump's disastrous event are a complete contrasts to the anger and concern that preceded the rally.

The event first drew criticism when medical experts warned that the large indoor event posed a high risk of virus spread.

Then the time and location of the rally angered people. The event was rescheduled from its originally slated date, June 19, when several critics vocally opposed Trump's decision to hold it on Juneteenth, the holiday commemorating the day all slaves were finally freed. As for its location, Tulsa, Oklahoma was the site of the brutal massacre of black people nearly 100 years ago, and many found the setting insensitive.

Clearly, those detractors have had the last laugh.
