Echoing one of the most iconic political ads of all time, the Lincoln Project today released a new spot that poses the same kind of compelling question that the 1984 Reagan, “Bear in the Woods” ad [] asked Americans; in the face of a profound threat to America, what kind of leadership do we expect and deserve?

Just as “Bear” called into question those who treated the then-potent Soviet Union’s military threat seriously, so too did Donald Trump and his allies behave as if the growing threat of Corona/COVID-19 wasn’t serious for over six weeks. “Virus” is a successor to “Bear” and asks the same kind of tough questions.”
