Former President Obama’s attorneys say they plan to file a cease-and-desist letter over a pro-Trump group’s television ad in South Carolina that attacks former Vice President Joe Biden by using a portion of Obama’s book out of context.

Obama is also demanding that all South Carolina television stations immediately stop running the ad from the Committee to Defend the President, which is aimed at supporting President Trump’s reelection bid.

The article goes on to state the following:

“This despicable ad is straight out of the Republican disinformation playbook, and it’s clearly designed to suppress turnout among minority voters in South Carolina by taking President Obama’s voice out of context and twisting his words to mislead viewers,” Obama spokeswoman Katie Hill said in a statement.

The ad includes portions from, “Dreams from My Father,” Obama’s 1995 memoir.

“Joe Biden promised to help our community. It was a lie. Here’s President Obama,” the ad begins.

Audio of Obama describing how the black community has been treated then plays.

“Plantation politics. Black people in the worst jobs. The worst housing. Police brutality rampant,” Obama says in the recording. “But when the so-called black committeemen came around election time, we’d all line up and vote the straight Democratic ticket. Sell our souls for a Christmas turkey.”

“Joe Biden won’t represent us, defend us, or help us,” the ad states.

“Don’t believe Biden’s empty promises,” it concludes.

The report from The Hill indicates that the ad represents “an effort to get the attention of black voters” in South Carolina.
