Conservatives Blur Trudeau And Trump Scandals In New Attack Ad - 2019-05-02
OTTAWA — Conservatives are unleashing a fresh blitz of pre-election attack ads over the next three weeks, including one that draws parallels between the prime minister and U.S. President Donald Trump.
The 30-second ad opens with a close-up on Trump's face. Its style mimics broadcast news with CNN-inspired graphics with the caption: "Administration rocked by scandal."
A news ticker below alludes to the SNC-Lavalin affair with mention of how "fallout continues over firing of attorney general," claiming Jody Wilson-Raybould was fired. Wilson-Raybould resigned from cabinet in February weeks after she was shuffled from justice to veterans affairs.
