Clinton SuperPAC Bites Back at Trump’s Barking Hillary Ad

Earlier this week, Donald Trump’s campaign introduced a 15-second ad interspersing a judo-performing Vladimir Putin and a jihadi terrorist with a clip of Hillary Clinton barking.

On Thursday, a Clinton SuperPAC responded with a very similar video. Instead of Clinton barking, it is Trump talking.

It’s a clip from “Morning Joe” on Wednesday, in which Trump is asked whom he consults with “so that you’re ready on day one.”

“I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things,” Trump answers.

Then there is a shot of Clinton, laughing.

“We don’t need another punchline,” the ad says.

The Trump and pro-Clinton spots convey the same message — that “when it comes to facing our toughest opponents,” the U.S. doesn’t need another “punchline.”

The Clinton SuperPAC, PrioritiesUSA, has gotten a big chunk of its financing from Hollywood figures like Haim Saban and Jeffrey Katzenberg. It’s already produced a series of anti-Trump Web videos.

Clinton made the barking noises when she was relaying a story at a campaign event in Reno, Nevada, last month.

One person who is apparently upset over the Trump spot is the Kremlin. A spokesman said they felt “negative” about the ad because it shows a “demonization” of Russia.

See Trump and pro-Clinton spots below.

Is this what we want for a President?
