Former WH ethics lawyer releases dumpster fire of a campaign ad about how he’ll put out DC dumpster fires

Talk about projection!

Richard Painter was a White House ethics lawyer during the George W. Bush administration is running for Congress as a Democrat in Minnesota. As a dumpster fire of an ad about the need to put out dumpster fires, this is as meta as it gets:

At first I thought that voice was John Brunnell, who narrates the World’s Wildest Police Videos show.

Painter’s the guy who last month said the American Revolution was probably pointless because of Trump. No, seriously.

His “dumpster fire” ad is projection writ large.
