GOP front-runner Donald Trump has released a new video mocking President Obama for his addiction to selfies and for posing for amusing Internet photos, even as ISIS terrorism grows across the world.
Team Trump posted the short video to its Instagram account on Monday morning. The video features President Obama mugging for funny selfies interspersed with images of ISIS.
The Trump ad features a sequence of Obama making funny faces in a mirror that appeared in a Buzzfeed video earlier this year that garnered over 59 million views.

Trump’s video uses an Obama soundbite in which he called ISIS “a bunch of killers with good social media,” and also adds the instance of the president saying “thanks Obama” from the Buzzfeed video.
Trump’s ad accuses Obama of being frivolous as ISIS grows in strength not just in the Middle East, but across the world. For some time, critics allege, the president has been trying to downplay ISIS, famously demeaning them as the “JV Team” (i.e. a “junior varsity team”) and insisting that ISIS was “contained” only hours before ISIS terrorists killed over 100 people in vicious attacks on innocent civilians in Paris, France.
Buzzfeed made the original video in February as the president was trying to sell the nation on what some have referred to as his take-over of the nation’s healthcare system. It featured the president making cool and funny faces, eating cookies, and using a selfie stick.

The popular pop culture site even posted a compilation of gifs showing some of the president’s funniest faces and quips from the video.
Buzzfeed has declined to comment on Trump’s use of its video.
