President Donald Trump tried to give the GOP a boost in the midterms by tweeting a video Wednesday.

We covered this case back in January: illegal immigrant Luis Bracamontes admitted in court hearings that he shot and killed two Sacramento-area deputies in October 2014, and as his trial got underway he made several outbursts, giggling and saying he wished he had “killed more of the motherf**kers.”
Now Bracamontes is the star of an ad, intercut with images of the migrant caravan breaking down the fence separating Guatemala and Mexico.
Jamie Weinstein, host of “The Jamie Weinstein Show” at National Review Online, says that no question, the ad is racist:
This is, without question, a racist ad https://t.co/nvCaPWu4oe

He’s not getting a lot of backup in the comments, however.
No, it's not. https://t.co/AkiniPOPSE

Cannot agree. There are criminals in the ranks. Some have already acknowledged this.

Not racist if its content is actuate and true.

Not racist but definitely nationalist, and in the accurate sense of the word, not the hyped up new definition which conflates it with ethno-nationalism.

Actually, it's not. But, nice try

Nah. Alleges that murders will get in and take advantage of mass migration. That's factual, doesn't address a race and as the video *shows* is current.
Very strange allegation, frankly.

Is gentle Luis a race?

Illegal alien murderer isn’t a race.

I wasn't aware that multiple murderer was a race.

This is, without question, a predictable response…
If everything is racist, nothing is??♂️
Enjoy the next 6 years???

Showing video clips of actual persons is racist? You people have lost your damn minds

This is the dumbest take of the day.

Nah. But hey. Keep trying.

Oh bullshit. Once you return to planet earth maybe you’ll act like a normal person.

It's not, but you keep swinging for those fences Skippy.

OMG, racist? Really dude? Want to see racist, turn on CNN. Now there is racism

Without question, you are virtue signaling.

So there are some bad people who come across the border who are Mexican, but they can’t be criticized because they’re Mexican? ?

This ad is gold.

Jamie is, without question, wrong.

When did you turn into Jennifer Rubin?

Whoa, that’s low.
Not racist but it is true. Quit being a soy bitch
— Clinton maid (@3Times3minus6) November 1, 2018
That’s almost as low.
BS! No it is not!
Criminal illegal alien is not a race!
There he is in his own words in court for murder of police officer, bragging & regretting not killing more.
Your reaction of race-baiting where none exists is typical for your side. Limited repertoire! No substance!
— Jacqueline Green (@JacquiGreen2016) November 1, 2018
You are, without question, a moron.
— Rock Solid Defense (@RebsFinsUp) November 1, 2018
That tweet didn’t go over as planned, though we suspect they’re clutching their pearls on MSNBC and CNN right now over the fact that Trump tweeted this.
