I Can’t Stop Watching This Bizarre Donald Trump Ad

Wow… what did I just watch?

From LA-based special effects wizard, Mike Diva, comes this startling fever dream: a parody Trump advertisement imagined as a tricked-out Japanese TV spot. “I made a commercial for my senpai—future world president Donald Trump,” Diva wrote on Twitter yesterday. My favorite part is when she flies on a rainbow into the floating Trump cave island, but you’ve got to stick around for the sensational ending: Trump as an all-powerful comic book Transformer, flying into orbit to destroy Earth, before an affectionate voice-over proclaims, “Trumpu, 2016.”


We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
