(TheFreedomFlag.com)- Several media outlets reported on Friday how the Biden campaign had decided to cease running all negative ads about President Donald Trump, shifting instead to many pro-Biden ads. It was widely considered to be a tactical move that would stop the Biden campaign looking nasty at a time when the president was suffering from the Chinese coronavirus.
Despite these reports, however, the Biden campaign still appeared to be running fiercely anti-Trump attack ads over the weekend, including a video that says America will only ever be great “when Trump is purged from our lives.”
What do they mean by that?
A Facebook video published on the Joe Biden page shows a woman named Cathy expressing her support for the Democratic nominees.
“’Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will resource our nation’s sanity, humanity, and global leadership.’ – Cathy,” the video is captioned.
In the video, Cathy goes on to say, “America will really be great again when Trump is purged from our lives.”
Visiting the ad archive page, the advertisement appears to have run from September 30th before being deactivated on October 4. The ad was only finally removed by the Biden campaign after conservative news outlets picked up on the video, and how it didn’t fit the narrative that Biden was being magnanimous by taking the videos down.
He didn’t take them down.
The same ad archive page shows that the Biden campaign spent roughly $3,000 on promoting the ad over the weekend when President Donald Trump was taken to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. The video may have reached as many as 500,000 people.
Speaking to CNN, the Trump campaign slammed Biden as disingenuous for pulling the ads.
“Joe Biden used his speech in MI today to attack the President repeatedly on Social Security, the economy & job creation,” the Trump campaign said. “Now Biden wants credit for being magnanimous?”
NEW: Trump campaign indicates it will not join @JoeBiden in pulling negative ads.
“Joe Biden used his speech in Michigan today to attack President Trump. He’s in no position to say anything,” @TimMurtaugh tells me.

If he did get credit, it wouldn’t have been deserved, as the campaign ads stayed live for days.
