Feel good American story, or is Budweiser’s new Super Bowl ad a thinly disguised jab at Trump?

As they say, if it looks like a duck…

One of Budweiser’s 2017 Super Bowl ads has many people asking if there is an intentional jab at the president in the video.

Released on Tuesday, the ad titled “Born The Hard Way” follows the “story of our founder’s ambitious journey to America in pursuit of his dream: to brew the King of Beers.”

Budweiser founder Eberhard Anheuser is portrayed on his journey to America, braving an ocean storm and anti-immigrant discrimination on his way to St. Louis where his beer recipe is welcomed.

Though the true story of the founding of Budweiser may be slightly different, many wondered if the company was being dramatic or political.

An important difference in the story of past immigrants to the U.S. is that most ended up becoming part of the fabric of America.

That isn’t always the case today. Ironically, a report documenting how the Somali immigrant population in Minnesota have not successfully assimilated into their new home was featured on Fox News not long after Budweiser’s immigration ad was released. In the report, a Somali immigrant claimed the school in his isolated community teaches Sharia law, but he wasn’t too sure about American history.

Thousands of Somalis settled in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area under the administrations of former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, placing a great strain on the area’s schools, hospitals and social service centers.
