Donald Trump tweets racially-charged attack on Joe Biden showing fake Barack Obama watching his former VP speak nonsensically in a meme made from an All State ad

President Donald Trump tweeted a campaign ad on Monday that contained a racially-charged attack on Joe Biden and features former President Barack Obama.
In the 30-second ad, Obama and three other black men are watching a basketball game when Biden appears during a commercial break.
The former vice president is talking – unclearly – about his time as a life guard and how children jump on his lap.
As Biden struggles for words, one of the men looks at Obama, who says: ‘What?’

The ad is heavily photoshopped and of low video quality. It appears to be ripped off an All State ad, with Obama’s face photoshopped over actor Dennis Haysbert.
Although it ends with ‘Trump Pence 2020 Make American Great Again,’ a Trump campaign official told that is not one of their campaign ads.
The video the president tweeted – which had more than 540,000 views in the hour after Trump posted it - features part of an actual speech Biden gave in Wilmington, Delaware, in 2017, when he was talking about his time working as a lifeguard. 

‘And by the way, you know I sit on the stand and it'd get hot. I got a lot of — I got hairy legs ... that turn blonde in the sun,’ Biden said. ‘And the kids used to come up and reach in the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and then watch the hair come back up again.’
‘So I learned about roaches and I learned about kids jumping on my lap,’ he noted.
‘I love kids jumping on my lap,’ he added.
The clip from that speech went viral during the Democratic primary late last year.
The All State ad that was the basis for the video features Haysbert watching a basketball game with his friends. During a break in the game, Haysbert’s All State commercial comes on. The guys switch to another game – only to find another Haysbert All State ad playing.
‘What?’ the actor says when his friends look at him.
Trump tweeted the ad as a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows Biden leading their presidential race by 7 points, 49 per cent to 42 per cent.
Biden also leads the president among African American voters, 85 per cent to 7 per cent.
The two men have sparred recently over who can best deal with the threat posed by the coronavirus.
Biden has attacked Trump for being unprepared for the pandemic. Trump has argued the Obama administration left him handicapped to deal with the virus and complained Biden handled the swine flu epidemic badly.
The campaigns are fighting it out on the airwaves and social media as both candidates stay off the trail due to the social distancing requirements in place to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
Trump on Friday admitted he’s looking forward to getting back on the campaign trail – although he didn’t give a date as to when – and complained he’s been locked up in the White House for ‘months.’
‘I've been in the White House for months. I don't know what it is but it's been months,’ Trump said.
‘Other than I did leave to, to say goodbye to a beautiful ship,’ he said referring to his trip to Norfolk, Virginia, on March 28 to watch the USNS Comfort leave for New York.
The president returned from a weekend at Mar-a-Lago on Monday, March 9, and has been in Washington D.C. ever since dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.
He said he is ready to campaign for re-election and argued rallies are ‘great’ for the country.
‘We can do rallies. It's great for the country,’ he said.
His last campaign rally was Monday, March 2, in Charlotte, N.C.
‘If you look at our success rate we've had tremendous success - we win where we have rallies,’ he said.
‘So I certainly hope we can have rallies. We'll find out,’ he noted.
