When this first popped up on my Facebook feed, I thought it must be a parody.
The only thing more surprising would be if something like this were produced by the Clinton campaign.
Check this out below. The GOP nominee has produced a video saluting a new Catholic saint. Has any candidate of either party done anything like this before?
Worth remembering: Trump has a well-documented “Catholic problem” right now—a significant deficit among what’s been described as “the largest religious contingent in the American electorate.” His very smart campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, is a Catholic who understands the importance of this canonization on the world stage; she shrewdly anticipated the massive media attention it is generating. (On a slow holiday weekend, it’s THE big Sunday story.) This video deftly plays into all that, and capitalizes on the enduring popularity of a beloved and iconic Catholic figure. It remains to be seen if it will have any effect on Catholic voters.
