What's up with all the political ads?

Should Hillary go to jail?
Should Trump build a wall?

Does anyone else get these ads or is it just me?

What's the deal?

Google adsense? Probably all the right wing hack sites you go to.

I have an ad for a TV stand as I was looking those up last week.

I got ads that said that Trump should go to jail and Hillary should build a wall.

I keep seeing ads for the 2017 Bentley Flying Spur.

I'm seeing a LootCrate ad at the top of this page.

You're probably getting ads based on websites you've visited.

Re: What's up with all the political ads?

Are you talking about that little ad banner that's at the top of the page? You actually read it? It's pretty small, I don't even notice it.

The only political forums I go to are this forum and the articles that the commenters there post. Strange.

That's enough to do it.

What's really freaky is, after I've been to a store like Pottery Barn, and Pottery Barn ads start showing up on my iPad without having even visited the website.

Turn location services off on your phone unless you need it.

I don't have an iPhone! My iPad/iTunes account has zip to do with my phone.

That's the weird thing. I have no idea how my phone and iPad could, in way, cross reference each other. My accounts don't even use the same e-mail addresses. The closest thing I can think of is that they both use my home WiFi.
