NBC, Fox News Channel and Facebook all said Monday they will stop airing President Donald Trump's campaign advertisement that featured an immigrant convicted of killing two police officers.

CNN had rejected the same ad, declaring it racist....

Marianne Gambelli, Fox News' president of advertising sales, said the commercial was pulled on Sunday "upon further review." Fox did not immediately say how many times it had aired on either Fox News Channel or the Fox Business Network.

I know the racist ad story has been posted a couple times, so I’ll use this as an opportunity to revel in DJT not only giving the middle finger once to the Murdocks last night when he called Hannity up, but a second time when he called Judge J up. Priceless!

But calling white men terrorists who need their travel limited is not.

Like Trump said, “racist” is what they call Republicans who are winning.

CNN editors declared the ad racist, therefore it’s racist.

Fake News based on a false conclusion.

Anyway, this ad is being seen by millions without Trump or the GOP having to pay a dime because of the free publicity.

The ad is like the old Willie Horton ad, hard, but truthful.
The actual cop killing perp was talking himself and the networks won’t run it so as not to offend.
