    They nailed it. Some people my age would rather post a tumblr blog meme about something they don’t like instead of voting against it.

    It's sad that only white people get old.

    This was supposed to be indicative of the population that voted for Trump. That was old white people.

    Predominantly old, white people. Not totally. The same ratio of representation would be criticized if it were a message about positive role models.

    You're supposed to look at the ad and go "I don't associate with those people, so I should go out and make sure they're not the ones making decisions for me." Putting exclusively old, rich, white people in the ad is especially effective in making that point.
