I’m so old I remember when the Willie Horton attack ad on 1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis was considered a supremely ugly example of Republican racism and race-baiting.
But now, in the Donald Trump era, the official Republican Party Twitter account is proudly tweeting about their “Willie Horton-style attack” on Tim Kaine. And yes, the attack ad is quite reminiscent of the Willie Horton ad.
RNC communications director Sean Spicer also tweeted the same link. Both the @GOP account and @seanspicer have now deleted their tweets after people reacted very negatively to them.
But we have the screenshots.
