Trump's Radio Ads Promise American Utopia

60 second promises of the impossible from one of the leading GOP candidates

Yahoo! News

Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina citizens are now graced with the voice of Donald Trump on their morning commutes.

Trump’s two new radio ads aired Friday; the beginning of his first active ad campaign since he started running for president in June.

“Politicians are all talk and no action, they will never make our country great again,” Trump said during his first radio spot posted on the campaign website.

A press release from Trump’s campaign said the radio spots are valued at $300,000 and will last through the end of November. It also said that these two 60-second-tid-bits are broadcasted on 11 different radio markets in the three states.

Trump says his reign as president will be “iconic” and that “no country will ever mess with us” if he is in charge. This idealistic view echoes earlier sentiments made on the countless TV and press appearances he has accumulated free of charge

US News said that these small advertising buys are just the tip of the iceberg: Trump now plans to continue to advertise as his competitors flood the airwaves and TV screens with TV ads and more.

The first radio ad is all Trump who focuses on his biggest selling points for Iowa, “trade, defense and immigration,” as US News observes.

The second ad features a sultry-sounding female narrator who paints the glorious picture of Trump’s rise to power.

“It’s time to make America great again, maybe even better before,” she proclaims.

He promises to end illegal immigration, strike down ISIS, and solve all of America’s problems; do you believe him?

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
