In New Attack Ad, Hillary (Again) Uses Republicans Attacking Trump

This Time Over Trump's Comments About Judge Gonzalo Curiel

By Published on .

In taking on Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton has her work cut out for her. Fortunately, she keeps on getting major assistance from Trump-bashing Republican leaders who are theoretically supposed to be rallying behind the presumptive GOP nominee -- as well as from Donald Trump himself, who can't seem to stop saying things that piss everybody off. The latest case in point: "Criticism grows over Trump's comments about judge, as Democrats AND Republicans condemn mogul."

For those just getting up to speed, the Clinton campaign has released the video ad below, via Twitter, that spells out the latest controvery (over Trump's comments regarding Judge Gonzalo Curiel) and quotes, uh, liberally from annoyed Republicans. The stragegy employed here -- stringing together clips of Republicans condemning Trump -- is becoming a recurring theme in the Clinton campaign. (See: "Watch Republicans Bash Trump in This Scathing Attack Ad From Hillary Clinton.")
