Social Media Says
For nearly three years we have been building a juggernaut campaign (Death Star). It is firing on all cylinders. Data, Digital, TV, Political, Surrogates, Coalitions, etc. In a few days we start pressing FIRE for the first time.
Nicknaming your presidential reelection campaign "Death Star" in the middle of a pandemic that has already killed 70K+ people is an interesting choice.
No Star Wars expert, but doesn t the Death blown up?
Do you dorkwads understand what happened to the Death Star? Twice?
The same campaign that compares Trump to Thanos would of course compare itself to the Death Star. At least you guys totally own the fact that you re the evil villains in your own narrative.
I didn t give our campaign the name, Death Star, the media did. However, I am happy to use the analogy. The fact is, we haven t used it yet. Laugh all you want, we will take the win!
I just hope that Death Star reelection campaign doesnt have a giant exhaust port. In the shape of a mouth on an orange face maybe.
Who chooses to portray themselves as the Death Star?
Trumps campaign manager named their 2020 reelection campaign "Death Star." Its an odd choice, considering: 1) 70k real Americans have died under Trumps watch in a month 2) The Empire the baddies, & 3) The Death Star is a symbol for hubris that gets blown up. Always.
The thing about Parscales Death Star tweet is that it reminded me of the conservatives who think the empire were the protagonists of Star Wars.
Me: Why is trending? **clicks** Is anyone else confused why anyone willingly labels themselves as the bad guys in Star Wars? ICYMI: The plot was that they built a Death Star to destroy an entire planets population at.
Brad, this is a great comparison. The Death Star is too big to fail! Nothing could possibly go wrong.
This is unintentionally hilarious from Parscale. Everyone remembers what happened to the Death Star but him, I guess.
In their minds I m sure it is a death star they re making. It ll later turn out to be diverted funds to the Cayman Islands.
Looks like has triggered the media and the left over a metaphor using the Death Star. Man is there anything these hacks won t get triggered on?
Let us look at the history of the Death Star in the story: Episode 4 - Death Star blown up Episode 6 - Death Star blown up Episode 7 - Death Star (bigger and called Starkiller Base now) blown up isnt going to end well for them.
His Death Star is 74k strong so far !!
That s the . . . Why would you . . . You do know the Death Star is the superweapon of the BAD GUYS, right?
Death Stars entry from the Star Wars databank: The Empire s ultimate weapon: a moon-sized space station with the ability to destroy an entire planet.
Im a little rusty on my Star Wars, but the only use of the Death Star was to kill millions of civilians as an act of terror in service of building a fascist republic, right? A little too on the nose.
Yeah I know. We had to take down our NowThis video with a million views of an ICU nurse in New York City because your Death Star was posting the most vicious comments on Facebook, threatening her saying the virus is fake news. She was in tears. Good job Brad.
Yes, I guess when you botch a pandemic response so badly you could call yourself Death Star.
So you know you re set up for failure ? The Death Star? Thanos? You ve already brainwashed MAGA. The rest of America can think. If you want a successful campaign, choose a ble candidate. Trump will sabotage whatever you do for being who and what he is - a monster.
How do you say Death Star in Russian?
This sounds like a good name for the campaign, considering that the real Death Star was built by intergalactic Nazis.
Death Star is the perfect brand ID. You can update it every day. The Trump Death Star has killed 74,773 Or Trump has so far caused 74,773 deaths, and when you re a star, they let you do it.
It took less than a hour for Brad Parscale to start backtracking and blame the media for his "Death Star" campaign name. Great job Brad.
Are you, by any chance, at all aware of what happened to every single iteration of the Death Star, Brad??
The Trump campaign threatening political opponents with the "Death Star" is all of the motivation I needed today. , care to remind us how that story ends?
This must be part of his Death Star re-election campaign: Trump will urge Supreme Court to strike down Obamacare.
Death Star? Seems about right as your leader wishes to have more people dead so he can get back to making a profit off of us. Besides, you do know the resistance wins, right?? Dumbass.
Historical Fact: The Death Star was destroyed.
Too "prescriptive." Trump rejected the CDCs medical advice about reopening for medical advice. No wonder the White House is branding itself the "Death Star." Theyre going to kill a LOT of Americans this way.
Got a fun story for you about what happens to the Death Star.
Today s Star Wars conversation reminds me that in Clerks, the Death Star conversation was memorably funny bc it was weird for adults to care so much about the details of a then-10-year old sci-fi movie.
The Trump White House is represented by the Death Star which is in fact accurate. Theyd be the Germans in a WWII movie.
Hard to imagine the Campaign Manager of any other campaign in history getting away with referring to their campaign apparatus as the "Death Star" in the middle of a pandemic thats killed 75,000 Americans in weeks.
Look, I dont even like and havent seen the Star Wars movies (dont @ me). But I know enough to know that The Death Star belongs to the bad guys, right? And it gets destroyed? Its like when they had Trump as Thanos - Republicans are so bad with popular cultural references.
You know the Death Star was built by bad guys who wanted to kill everyone who didn t agree with them? You know the Death Star was designed to destroy entire planets as terrorist acts? Yes. I believe you knew that. But don t forget what happened to the Death Star. Twice.
Trumps campaign is comparing itself to the Death Star. Maybe they dont know how the movie ends.
The Death Star was an expensive failure and, despite that, the Empire built a bigger and more expensive one that also failed. Here endeth the lesson.
me, an empire stan, seeing that trmps campaign manager is calling their 2020 campaign "death star".
This is going to be a big test of the media--how many will shift the death toll into the category of "politicized" issues where one person believes one thing & another person believes another and be realllly careful about saying whos right because we cant "appear to take sides".
When your campaign is the Death Star.
The head of the Trump campaign referring to their campaign apparatus as the "Death Star" is a bit too on the nose.
The Death Star is an enemy of humanity and planet Earth so I guess Bristol Parscale or whatever his name is has something right about the Trump presidency.
And while its true that millions were killed on Alderaan, the real scandal here is crooked Jyn Erso leaking the Death Star plans.
He knows the Death Star is for the bad guys right? Not to mention it was built by a rebel spy and purposefully had design flaws that led to its destruction.

The Death Star.
Brad Parscale, Trumps campaign manager, has adopted the nickname the Death star for the Trump campaign. Apparently the Titanic had already been taken.
Exactly. Both Death Stars in Star Wars were destroyed. LOL. I m dyin !!!
You know the Death Star loses right.
Justin Amash as new polling suggests his candidacy may pull some away from Joe Biden appears to compare himself to Luke Skywalker taking out the Death Star (Trump)...
Maybe can let Brad in on what happens to the Death Star.
