Effective propaganda poster: Sanders and Trump both fly on jets

  • Sanders has traveled by bus and also by airline coach but he recently began using a Gulfstream jet charter too.
  • Trump flies on his own corporate aircraft.
  • Trump is a billionaire and he does seem self-obsessed.
  • Poster appeals to the populist perspective of Sanders and the greedy narcissistic perspective of Trump – but the implication that Sanders does not fly a private jet is no longer true. Truth means little in a good social media propaganda poster! (This was shared into my FB stream).

This is a good propaganda poster. The visuals are perfect (or as Trump would say, “Terrific!”) and the message is short and quickly processed. That means viewers are likely to click Share and Like and pass this along to others.
