USAA Claims to Avoid 'Opinion Shows,' But Here's Their Ad on the Wild 'Rachel Maddow Show'

The advertisers publicly bowing to the Left and pulling ads from Sean Hannity's Fox show aren't getting cheers from their customers. The message board at USAA looks like there's some unhappiness. Meanwhile, the proof keeps coming that despite their stated "policy" of not advertising on opinion shows, USAA has advertised on wild-eyed MSNBC programming speculating on how much Donald Trump is owned by Russian strongmen and oligarchs.

For example, our diggers found a USAA ad on MSNBC's The Rachel Maddow Show on May 2:

In March, Sonny Bunch was somehow allowed to blog at The Washington Post that Maddow's big embarrassing Geraldo-esque show on small slivers of Trump's tax information implied she dwells in conspiracy theories: "we weren’t watching a news broadcast so much as a modern recreation of X’s monologue from Oliver Stone’s JFK."
