Posted October 07, 2020 06:31:33A new postcard advertising campaign by the late host of Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson shows a young woman holding a photo of her late father, who was killed in an airplane crash while riding in a taxi cab in 1955.
In the ad, which shows the woman holding the photo of his late father on her hip, she says, “He took my father for a ride and when he got to the airport, he forgot to bring me the taxi.”
The ad shows a postcard from 1955, which is titled “Tucker Carlson: Dad and My Father.”
The postcard features a photograph of Carlson, who died in May 2021, along with his wife, Susan Carlson, and their daughter, Liana.
Carlson, who made a name for himself in the 1990s by using his TV show to air controversial conservative political views, died in his sleep on October 3 at age 81.
The postcards were first posted to Facebook in April 2018 and have been viewed more than 4.7 million times.
In a post to Twitter, a spokeswoman for the Trump campaign said the campaign is “proud” of the ad and hopes to reach more people through social media.
“Tucker is a big supporter of our veterans and we are happy to have him in the mix with the #VeteransTakeOverAmerica campaign,” Sarah Sanders said in a tweet.
Trump has been criticized for his criticism of veterans during his campaign, including his criticism at the Democratic National Convention last summer of the men and women who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In August, Trump retweeted a post by another conservative radio host, Sean Hannity, who referred to veterans as “sick,” and said the nation needed to heal.
