Trump Ad Hits Hillary Clinton For "Basket of Deplorables" Comment

Posted: Sep 12, 2016 10:00 AM

Donald Trump's newest ad savages Hillary Clinton for her "basket of deplorables" comment made on Friday night at a fundraiser. The ad plays Clinton's comments overlaid with images from the RNC and Trump rallies, and hits Clinton for "viciously demonizing hard working people."

Check it out here:

This is a good ad from the Trump camp. It's quick, effective, and cuts right to the point. Clinton's comments were, to borrow a word, deplorable, and they were effectively the 2016 version of Romney's "47 percent" remark. It's hardly the rhetoric she's been trying to push for the majority of her campaign.

Overall, it wasn't the best weekend for Hillary, and it looks as though the Trump camp is going to capitalize on that.
