John Liu's awkward political ads


From the NY Post:

Liu’s ad was in terrible taste, according to Republican Jewish activist Arthur Schwartz.

“‘Jews like pastrami so this will resonate with them.’ —Moronic New York democrat politician,” Schwartz tweeted Monday.

The campaign said they didn’t intend for the ad to create indigestion.


"I'll fight for abortion rights as soon as I finish stuffing my face with lox!"


Not sure what he's eating here. An empanada? In fact I'm so distracted by trying to figure that out that I forgot the point he was trying to make.

This, on the other hand, is truly nightmare-inducing but it's doubtful that Trump cares.

That might be a veggie empenada.

If people only knew he's running for State government not federal. He should be Cuomo's worst nightmare

Nope won't be voting for him.

A sign of desperation, Liu has nothing to offer the voters in his district except he is Chinese, the hope was that the huge increase in the Chinese population in this area would be enough to elect him, looks like he and his backers now realize this isn't going to work...so let's attack Trump! Incumbent Sen. Tony Avella has been a real presence in this district, he is all over the place trying to fix local problems, you cannot pickup the weekly newspapers in Queens without seeing a photo of Avella standing with some community group in front of a construction site or busted sidewalk or sewer. That's local politics at its best. Avella has always been a Democrat but radicals within the Queens machine stabbed him in the back so he has to run on the Independent line. The difference is Avella works for his constituents, Liu does what the radicals in the Queens Democratic machine want. Yeah, attack Trump, that ought to work!

Scarf, scarf, scarf. At least in the first ad he's wearing a napkin around his neck. You know I always thought this was a more advantageous positioning of the serviette instead of on one's lap. How about you? I mean, if you have a napkin on your lap the food can still dribble onto your shirt, right?

Cuomo, Liu and every other political ad I've had to suffer through for the last few weeks are all missing the point: you are running for STATE office. focus on fixing the cesspool in Albany, you don't explain a damned thing about that. i do not care how you feel about the President, how with you help me as a NYer?

Imbeciles!

What's next - an ad saying that John Liu is Vladimir Putin's worst nightmare?

My worst nightmare is that John Liu is elected my state senator. Or any elected office, for that matter.

John Liu is way too close to criminals and underhanded undertakings for me to even think to vote for him. There is a cloud of "something funny going on" around him at all times.

What a stupid chump commercial, Liu sitting down to a pastrami sandwich. Did he think Jews would be fooled? Looked like a lousy sandwich anyway, a real puny one, in a low class restaurant somewhere. The standard way overstuffed pastrami sandwich can only be found in Brooklyn!

Tony Avella has proven himself to be "out there" trying to correct bad situations around his district.

Looks like Avella could get in after all. I'm not seeing much Republican support for their very good candidate, Paladino. What a shame. These have to be the crappiest commercials I've ever seen, can't even understand him, even if it mattered, in most of the ads.

Eating food on camera is never a good idea unless you've got super model looks. And even then.

I can think of loads of bad things to call the Queens machine, but they're not radicals.

The question is how did Liu ever beat Avella in the primary? Besides his fundraising scandals in prior elections, he's just a bizarre person. Now his campaign is about going after Trump. Who in their right mind would vote for him?

The Chinese. Foreigners only care about the race of people running. Not their ideas. I think there is even a "dreamer" running for state assembly office, I think her name is cruz. But how is she running without even being a citizen? Of course she will get the Hispanic vote only because they strictly vote based on race and not their ideas and based on the fact that shes an illegal.

1. The demographics are changing in Bayside, Whitestone, Douglaston, etc. (Paul Vallone will be gone soon too)

2. Tony Avella is considered a very moderate Democrat.

3 (a). John Liu is talking about Trump because he really doesn’t plan to change anything in the district.

(b). Fellow Democrats like Liu, de Blasio and Cuomo have one agenda: go after Trump and the conservative base.

(c). Blame the boogeyman when all else fails.

The answer to how did Liu win the primary ... he got people into the polls and the Avella supporters did not think Avella could lose so they did not go to vote.

For Avella to win now on the Independence Line means the voters, who want to see his hard work continuing in their communities, have to get to the polls and vote for Avella on Tuesday. No ifs, ands, or buts ... just get to the polls on Tuesday because, when all is said and done, YOUR VOTE DOES COUNT!!!

He was eating in Raul's Bodega on 148th Street near Northern Blvd. Makes a good sandwich.

"Trump's worst nightmare will be John Liu"

No doubt, no one in Queens besides Joe Crowley embodies corrupt swamp creature quite like John Liu.

Two groups - staunch machine Democrats who vote whoever the machine tells them to vote for, and guillible Berniecrats who think that replacing a moderate Democrat with a slightly less moderate Democrat is somehow sticking it to both Trump and to the establishment.

It was definitely because Avella was a member of the IDC. If I'm not mistaken, all of the IDC people lost their primaries. Wasn't a problem for me, but it's not a good time to be linked to the Party of Trump.

Paul Vallone will be gone in 2021 because of term limits, not because of a change in demographics.

Well, there is no IDC any longer so vote for the man who works for you and your community. Vote for Tony Avella on Tuesday to continue his hard work for communities of Northeast Queens!

Will a John Liu (openly corrupt), Ocasio-Cortez (uninformed socialist), or Vallone clone (self-serving narcissist) be elected to take his place?

Never underestimate the level of brainwashing that has affected voters in NYC. I know scores of people who go in and vote Row A (Dem) straight down. They don't even look at the names. Avella has an uphill battle. I would love to see Paladino win but it probably won't happen.
