One wonders if an ad by some old-time rank & file conservative Republicans just may do the trick. Will it bend the indoctrination curve?

Republicans for the Rule of Law wrote the following on the ad titled "Why Did President Trump Lie About the COVID-19 Crisis?" The first responsibility of government is, as the Constitution says, "to provide for the common defense." President Trump has now rightly compared the coronavirus pandemic to a war. But he was still minimizing the threat as recently as three days ago. In a crisis, there are three rules that must be followed when communicating with the public: Be first. Be right. Be credible.
