Donald Trump on Friday attacked American Crossroads’ “Cool Obama” ad, saying the conservative group made the president look good.

“It was a terrible ad by the Republicans. When I first saw it I thought the Democrats put it out,” the billionaire businessman said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“They’re making Obama look great, they’re making him look like that’s the man we want to be president,” he added.

Crossroads, the group headed by former White House adviser Karl Rove, unveiled the 30-second spot on Thursday. It shows clips of Obama singing Al Green, dancing with Ellen DeGeneres, sipping beer and “slow-jamming” the news with Jimmy Fallon, calling the president “the biggest celebrity in the world.”

But the ad makes it clear that Americans don’t want a celebrity in the White House, they want someone who can improve America, asking, “After four years of a celebrity president, is your life any better?”

Trump, who phoned into the show as hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski interviewed advertising executive Donny Deutsch, said, “I looked at that clip very closely and I couldn’t believe it. I thought it was one of the worst commercials, in terms of what they were trying to do, that I have ever seen.”

But Deutsch praised the ad, telling Trump that he was projecting his own thirst for fame on to average Americans.

“To you that’s the most amazing thing in the world,” he told Trump. “But to the average guy who is out of work… all of a sudden will stop to think, and go ‘yeah, wait a second, he’s cool and everything, but I don’t want cool now, I want meat and potatoes.’
