So is Spielberg a part of The Lincoln Project? Ken Burns?

The only thing that’s “attack ad” in the Memorial Day offerings from Republican anti-Trump group is the glaring contrast thrown on the table when you start talking about honor, sacrifice, saving the republic, empathy and intelligence and imply those are traits the current occupant lacks.

This one reuses a Lincoln letter that was in Spielberg’s “Saving Private Ryan,” and possibly in Ken Burns’ episostlery doc series “The Civil War.” I think it was in there.

And using mournful fiddle music in the score reinforces that idea. I don’t think Spielberg recycled it for “Lincoln.”
