Trump’s New Attack Ad Against Hillary Gets Personal [VIDEO]

This Trump Ad against Hillary brings up her past when Bill was president.

Using few words, this Trump ad against Hillary brings to mind accusations that she was the enabler while her husband was the predator.

According to the Hollywood Reporter,

On Monday, Donald Trump released over social media his newest attack ad against Hillary Clinton which focuses on her husband, former President Bill Clinton. 

Along with the ad, the presumptive GOP presidential candidate asks: “Is Hillary really protecting women?”

The black and white spot runs for about 20 seconds and features women’s voices, including Juanita Broaddrick, who accused Bill Clinton of rape. Bill Clinton is shown with a cigar in his mouth. The ad ends with Hillary laughing and the words: “Here we go again?”

In a Dateline NBC interview that aired in February 1999, Broaddrick talked about Clinton in 1978, then Attorney General of Arkansas, sexually assaulting her. 

In a particularly emotional part of her interview, Broaddrick describes the aggressive way Clinton was allegedly kissing her while she was trying to ward off his advances. 

“He starts to bite on my top lip and I try to pull away from him,” Broaddrick said in the interview. This is the exact segment Trump uses in his new attack ad. 

Perhaps this should cause us to take a moment to reflect on the past—not just the Clinton White House or the Clinton Secretary of State, but the presidential races of 2008 and 2012. Did John McCain or Mitt Romney show even half as much interest in defeating Barack Obama?

No!

In fact, Mitt Romney showed much more eagerness when he attacked Donald Trump.

Say what you will about Donald Trump, at least he wants to defeat the Democrats. This is one reason why he is overtaking Hillary. It is also why the predictions of “experts” that Trump cannot beat Hillary are probably inaccurate. They haven’t imagined how Trump might campaign against the Clintons. In this case, the fact that Trump is not like other Republicans means that his prospects are not like those of other Republicans.
