Trump’s New Super PAC Name Is Exactly as Bad as You Thought It Would Be
This is what happens when all the good copywriters are Democrats.
Disgraced former President Donald Trump continues to bilk money out of his mindless supporters by raising funds for the 2024 presidential campaign. Trump has yet to announce whether or not he’s actually running, but that hasn’t stopped him from filling his coffers with campaign donations. Yesterday, he announced a new super PAC, titled “Make America Great Again, Again.”
Yup. That’s the best he could do: MAGAA. I guess it makes sense from a manufacturing standpoint, as the sweatshops he employs to make his merch now just has to add an extra “A” to their pre-existing MAGA apparel. But from an advertising standpoint, this is a deeply terrible slogan.
I swear this was a SNL bit or something before it was real. https://t.co/QHsc1Lv09v

The rebrand is allegedly a way to distance Trump from former confidante Corey Lewandowski, who was accused of sexual misconduct. But since when have accusations of sexual misconduct ever pre-empted someone from holding influence in Trump’s world? Lewandowski is currently in charge of Trump’s PAC, “Make America Great Again Action,” and apparently cannot be removed. As a result, Trump is transferring funds to his new super PAC to cut Lewandowski out.
Folks getting caught up on hilarity around the idea this is a “rebrand” are missing a basic point – Trump folks had no way to legally replace Lewandowski, one of two board members of the first super PAC, unless he stepped down, so they’re now forming a new group https://t.co/tqWfGc0L9O

Still, “Make America Great Again, Again” is a ridiculous name, and folks on social media were quick to rip it to shreds:
TFG has no creativity.
“Make America Great Again Again” is like a really bad sequel to a horrible movie.

I really feel bad for future historians trying to explain this absolute shit show of a moment. https://t.co/GloNVPiQNh

How can you Make America Great Again, Again when you didn’t make it great the first time?

In October 2020, Donald Trump suggested a new slogan of “Make America Great Again, Again” so he could sell his cult “more hats”.

“Make America Great Again…Again” is the Four Seasons Total Landscaping of campaign slogans.

Truly, there is no better slogan that epitomizes Trump than “Make America Great Again, Again.” Why? Because it’s as vacuous and illogical, and it is ultimately an unintentional self-own. We would expect nothing less from a failed steak salesman who couldn’t even turn a profit with a casino in Atlantic City. The slogan smirks of try-hard failure and pedaling the same garbage to his lemmings.
It’s also a reminder that our very best copywriters are Democrats.
