Clinton Releases a Brutal Anti-Trump Ad

And she gets Republicans to do the dirty work for her.


With Ted Cruz and John Kasich out of the race, Donald Trump has become the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton’s campaign wasted no time switching to general election mode, releasing a web video criticizing Trump. But Clinton didn’t do it in her own words; the ad is a compilation of unkind things Trump’s fellow Republicans have said about him during the party’s nomination campaign.

It’s harsh. Mitt Romney calls Trump a misogynist, Marco Rubio claims he’s the most “vulgar person to ever aspire to the presidency,” and Jeb Bush says Trump needs therapy.

It looks like the Clinton campaign isn’t going to let any of the #NeverTrump Republicans forget that stance anytime soon.

Update: 9:30 pm ET, May 4, 2016: Hillary has released a second ad that is even spicier than the first.
