Pro-Trump Group Defiantly Says They Won’t Pull Obama Ad Despite Cease-And-Desist Letter

A Republican super PAC has just announced that they will not be pulling an ad featuring Barack Obama despite receiving a cease-and-desist letter from attorneys representing the former president demanding that they do so.

The Committee to Defend the President has responded to the letter by saying that the ad, which is currently airing in South Carolina, ”is a lawful expression of political speech.”

“CDP will not only refuse to take ‘Enough Empty Promises’ down but will distribute this advertisement to an additional 50,000 South Carolina Democratic primary voters,” the group said, according to The Hill.

The commercial makes it look like Obama is criticizing his former Vice President Joe Biden by taking things that he said about him out of context. It also includes excerpts from Obama’s 1995 memoir “Dreams from My Father.” The law firm Perkins Coie, which is representing Obama, claimed that the ad consists of the “unauthorized use” of Obama’s “name, image, likeness, voice and book passage.”

“This despicable ad is straight out of the Republican disinformation playbook, and it’s clearly designed to suppress turnout among minority voters in South Carolina by taking President Obama’s voice out of context and twisting his words to mislead viewers,” Obama spokeswoman Katie Hill said in a statement. “In the interest of truth in advertising, we are calling on TV stations to take this ad down and stop playing into the hands of bad actors who seek to sow division and confusion among the electorate.”

We’re glad to see that this pro-Trump group is taking a stand against Obama, who is clearly trying to interfere in the 2020 election on Biden’s behalf.

The reality is that this group can create any ad they want to using the words of a former president, and for Obama to think otherwise is beyond ridiculous. Sorry, Obama but this is one battle that you are not going to win.
