Clip via Fox News Channel
Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s new ad for MoveOn.org attacking presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump features front and center a man who actually voted for Donald Trump.
How the heck did that happen?
“On Monday I got a text from a friend who said, ‘Hey, I just saw you in the new Warren video attacking Trump.’ And I thought, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me,’” Trump supporter Michael Levin told “Fox and Friends” on Sunday. “I watched the video, and to my shock and surprise, there I was.”
Levin is featured in the video helping his daughter don her bicycle helmet, and later gazing into the distance with his wife.
“I’m not anti-Trump, I actually voted for him in the Massachusetts primary,” Levin told co-host Tucker Carlson. “And the little girl you saw in that video came with me to the polls with her siblings to watch me vote for him.”
As a writer who has contributed to The Wall Street Journal, Politico and The New York Daily News among others, Levin has written of his support for Trump, which would have been revealed by a 10-second Internet search.
The clips were lifted from an Al Jazeera special on the American family that aired several years ago.
“And apparently it’s still up on YouTube,” Levin said. “And I think the Warren people just Googled ‘American Dream,’ found us, and said, ‘What a nice mixed-race couple. They’re probably sort of working-class people.’”
And a mixed-race couple certainly couldn’t be Republicans, right? I mean Republicans are racist right? Wrong!
And no one called Levin to get his permission.
“There were no such calls, and I only found out after the video had gone viral,” he said. “I think about 12 million people have now seen me actually assenting – or appearing to assent – to her position on Trump.”
