FOLLOWING MONEY IN 2016 PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS

LISTEN/READ: ¡Sí Se Puede! New Radio Ads Try To Tie McCain With Trump (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

The liberal People For the American Way is spending $3,500 on an ad this weekend airing on Spanish-language radio stations, attempting to tie Arizona Senator John McCain (R-AZ) to GOP Presidential nominee Donald Trump and hammering the entire Republican party for "saying we are criminals."

PFAW filed their spending report with the Federal Election Commission this afternoon. It's running through next Tuesday's primary, although it is more focused on the November election.

The bilingual ad features a child (who sounds pretty darned old) speaking in English with her Spanish-speaking mother. Here is the ad, and both the Spanish/English transcript and the English translation/transcript.



Bilingual:
Child: I’m scared of Donald Trump, Mami. Are you going to vote against him?
Mom: Sí, cómo no, mi'jita. No podemos dejar que gane.
Child: Es que - I see people who rally for him. What if he wins?
Mom: Si hacemos lo que tenemos que hacer – sacar a todos a votar – entonces Trump, el Senador McCain, y los republicanos pierden las elecciones.
Child: Los republicanos are the ones saying we’re criminals, and they don’t support making college more affordable, ¿verdad, mami?
Mom: Sí, y bloquearon las acciones de inmigración del Presidente, quieren quitar Obamacare…Y, para colmo, están en contra de aumentar el sueldo mínimo – mi sueldo.
Child: ¿Sabes qué Ama? I’m going to spread the word among everyone I know to go vote. I’m going to start with Papi, and tell him every vote makes a difference.
Mom: Así es, tenemos que echarle ganas. Sí se puede m’ijita!

Translation:
Child: I’m scared of Donald Trump, Mom. Are you going to vote against him?
Mom: Of course, darling. We can't allow him to win.
Child: It's just that... I see people who rally for him. What if he wins?
Mom: No way. If we do what we have to – make sure everyone goes out and votes – Trump, Senator McCain, and the Republicans lose the election.
Child: The Republicans are the ones saying we are criminals and they don’t support making college more affordable, right?
Mom: And they blocked the President’s immigration actions, want to take away Obamacare…and, to top it off, they are against increasing the minimum wage – my wage.
Child: You know something Mom? I'm going to spread the word among everyone I know to go vote. I'm going to start with Papi, and tell him every vote makes a difference.
Mom: That’s right, we have to make a good effort! Sí se puede!
