Clinton SuperPAC Bites Back at Trump’s Barking Hillary Ad

hillary clinton Super Tuesday TV Ratings

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.

Is this what we want for a President?

    Trump’s words were edited out of context. Hillary cackling away like the Wicked Witch only tells me she’s clueless. Trump might have his own limitations, but no question he’s the smarter of the two.

    Trump’s ad with a barking Hillary was hilarious. He won this round.

  4. Lets put it this way we are talking about Donny the tweeter “man” Right? And what they are saying is Hillary can’t handle those “bad guys” One of them who happens to like Trump a lot! And the other one who happens to be dead! And I don’t think Donny killed him, right? But Hillary we can say she was there when we got rid of Bin Laden, Don’t you think? Yeah I say watch out fruit! Her bite is much worse than her bark!
