Nothing bespeaks a metropolis’s wholesome, vibrant tradition like a giant “grownup leisure trade,” and the proliferation of strip golf equipment!
At the least, in case you hearken to Tiffany Cross . . .
On her MSNBC present this morning, Cross devoted a section to a political advert presently working in Georgia referred to as, “Get Your Booty to the Ballot.” It options strippers dancing round a “pole” urging black voters to get to the “ballot” within the Senate run-off elections.
Cross had as a visitor the creator of the advert. Cross bragged about how the “grownup leisure trade” in Atlanta brings in more cash than all of the sports activities groups within the metropolis. And she boasted that Atlanta:
“Ranks fifth within the nation for the best variety of strip golf equipment per 100,000 residents.”
And that is an excellent factor??
Cross and the advert creator stated the purpose of the advert was to succeed in black males who prefer to go to strip golf equipment: “to satisfy them the place they’re.”
And the advert itself made its enchantment to black voters specific. After one speaker urged folks to go to their web site to be taught the place the candidates stand on points that have an effect on “us,” one other speaker stated: “and by ‘us,’ we imply black folks.”
Earlier within the present, Cross had on former Republican Congressman Jack Kingston of Georgia. When Kingston urged folks to respect others with differing political beliefs, together with these from “flyover states,” Cross stated she:
“cannot recall any comparable disrespect to people in flyover states.”
Cross cannot recall liberals expressing disrespect for folks from flyover nation? Actually?
Obama’s “bitter clingers.” Hillary’s “deplorables.” Good day?
Video clip at tweet.
Observe: Cross’s incapability to recall “bitter clingers” or “deplorable” however, we do give her credit score for having Kingston as a visitor. He isn’t your typical Trump-hating “MSNBC Republican,” really expressing respect for President Trump’s proper to problem the election outcomes.
Tiffany Cross boasting concerning the nice variety of strip golf equipment in Atlanta was sponsored partially by Visionworks, Liberty Mutual, and DirecTV.
Here is the transcript.
