Trump's Thanksgiving at Mar-a-Lago will include this ad about his approval ratings

President Donald Trump's regular dose of Fox & Friends will be tainted this Thanksgiving week with reminders about his historically low approval ratings.

The women's advocacy group UltraViolet says it's targeting Trump during his vacation at the Mar-a-Lago, his Florida resort in Palm Beach, with "More Popular Than Trump" TV ads. The anti-Trump commercials will run in the Palm Beach market Tuesday through Saturday during Fox & Friends and Saturday Night Live. Things that are currently more popular than Trump include access to abortions, the Affordable Care Act, paid family leave and – shocker – even Nickelback, according to the advertisement.



"Fewer than four in 10 Americans approve of the way [Trump] is handling his duty as President," said Nita Chaudhary, co-founder of UltraViolet, in a statement. "Donald Trump is obsessed with his own ratings and popularity – so much so that he continues to prioritize them over issues that actually impact the American people. That’s why we are running TV ads on one of his most beloved propagandist shows, Fox & Friends, all week long during one of his countless stays at the Mar-A-Lago. Our message is clear: America rejects Trump and his agenda."

So, if you wake up to angry Trump tweets this week, at least you'll know what got under his skin.
