Yesterday, we wrote about Joe Malcoun, co-owner of the popular “The Blind Pig” bar in Ann Abor, MI, home to Univ. of Michigan, who appeared in a new Joe Biden television ad, where he blamed President Trump for Gretchen Whitmer’s decision to shut down businesses during the COVID pandemic.
In the “The Blind Pig” ad, Joe Malcoun is simply identified as “Joe.” The Biden campaign ad never mentions that Joe’s a wealthy business owner or that he frequently hosts big-ticket fundraisers for high profile Democrats in Michigan.
“We don’t know how much longer we can survive,” Joe tells viewers.
In the ad, Malcoun falsely accuses President Trump of his business woes, “This is the reality of Trump’s COVID response,” he says, adding, “We don’t know how much longer we can survive not having any revenue.”
