Fox News is hosting ad space for President Joe Biden’s abortion message on the same day as the first GOP debate.

Biden’s alter ego “Dark Brandon” made an appearance on the network’s webpage Wednesday morning, touting a pro-abortion message. The ad is placed in the right hand corner of the webpage, prime real estate for Fox News, which is also hosting the Republican presidential debate in Wisconsin.

“Get real, Jack. I’m bringing Roe back,” the ad reads above a picture of Biden with red laser beam eyes.

The full ad reads, “You don’t have to agree with everything the President says to know that we need to restore the fundamental rights given to women by Roe v Wade, and to oppose the MAGA extremism of some of today’s Republicans. Pitch in today to help win elections up and down the ballot to restore Roe. And none of that is malarkey.” (RELATED: Biden Campaign Refuses To Commit To Debate With Trump)

The ad will run until 11:59 p.m., People reported, meaning the digital message will be featured during the debate. Other versions of the ad — about Social Security, tax cuts and lowering drug costs — will be on billboards in Milwaukee, according to the outlet.

Rob Flaherty, deputy campaign manager for Biden’s 2024 campaign, told People that the ad placement choice is in part due to Fox News hosting the debate. It’s also “a surprising place for the president to show up,” Flaherty told the outlet.

“I think it fits both the president’s ethos of going everywhere and not writing off any voters,” Flaherty added. “It also speaks to the sort of strided, swaggy Dark Brandon personality of, ‘Yeah, we’re going to go on Fox News and talk about protecting and restoring Roe.'”

Fox News did not respond to an inquiry from the Daily Caller.
