Crowdfunding Anti-Trump Print Ad: “Vote For A Stapler. Anything Would Be Better”

Crowdfunding Anti-Trump Print Ad: “Vote For A Stapler. Anything Would Be Better”

A copywriter at advertising agency Grey New York, is sick of seeing “toxic hairclown” Republican Presidential hopeful Donald Trump everywhere he turns. So he’s started a campaign on Go Fund Me to run print ads attacking Trump in the largest paper in New Hampshire.

Louis Wittig posted on the crowdfunding site: “I’m an average guy from New Jersey, and just like you I loathe Donald Trump for a million reasons.

“But I’m sick of just fuming. I want to do something about this toxic hairclown: I want to run an anti-Trump newspaper ad in New Hampshire two days before the primary. (Because why should super PACs, corporations and labor unions have all the political advertising fun?)

“I want to run one of them The Concord Monitor, the largest paper in Merrimack County, New Hampshire on Sunday, February 7th (the New Hampshire primary is on Tuesday, February 9th). The cost for a half-page ad that day is $1,530, and that’s what I’m asking for.”

He argues that The Concord Monitor has a circulation of 22,000 people, the newspaper could convince some of the county’s 29,000 registered Republicans to think twice before voting for Trump.

Here are just some of the ads Wittig wants to run:8557977_1453694216.1434_funddescription
