A new ad from a political action committee is focused on the possibility of Hillary Clinton making history as the first woman president of the United States.
The ad — titled Man Smart (Woman Smarter) and featuring the song of the same name — opens with a shot of Michelle Obama and her quote: “So much history yet to be made.” It then rolls through a “who’s who” of pioneers in women’s political history including the first woman Supreme Court Justice, Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman vice presidential candidate, Geraldine Ferraro, the first woman Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, and the first African-American woman secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice.
The ad then pauses on a still of an open presidential lectern in the White House with the words “It’s time” suspended above. Next, we see a black-and-white still of a smiling Clinton. “Vote Hillary. #FirstWoman,” the ad concludes.
In what could very well be Hillary Clinton’s closing argument in her run for the White House, the Clinton campaign released this new spot, narrated by Morgan Freeman and titled “Example,” highlighting the candidates’ differences in tone, temperament and readiness to lead the United States.
The question posed is, which candidate is “knowledgeable and steady,” and which is “unprepared and reckless?”
New campaign spot from the Human Rights Campaign highlights Democrat Hillary Clinton’s support for LGBTQ equality.
“Time and again Hillary Clinton has demonstrated through her words and actions that she is committed to fighting for full LGBTQ equality,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “All of the progress we’ve achieved is at stake in this election. While Donald Trump continues his hate-filled campaign and threatens to drag us backwards, Hillary Clinton will fight to break down the walls of discrimination that still hold us back. It’s crucially important that pro-equality Americans turn out and vote for Hillary Clinton as the next President of the United States.”
Text from the spot:
“We need to build an America where no one has to worry that they can get married on Saturday and be fired on Monday; where kids aren’t bullied just because of who they are; and where every American has the chance to live up to his or her God-given potential, no matter who they are or who they love.”
A new campaign ad from the Hillary Clinton campaign juxtaposes Republican Donald Trump with iconic movie bullies sending a message that Americans shouldn’t let Trump bully his way into the White House.
Opening with a textbook definition of a bully — “A blustering, overbearing person who puts down or intimidates others” — the clip overlaps the taunts from bullies from well-known movies with jeering comments Trump has made on the campaign stump.
The spot then focuses on a moment from a town hall earlier this year where Clinton was asked by a 10 year old girl, “What are you going to do about bullying?”
Clinton asked the young girl, “Can you tell me a little bit more about why that’s on your mind?”
“I have asthma and occasionally I hear people talking behind my back,” said the fifth-grader.
Clinton responds to the little girl saying, “I really do think we need more love and kindness in this country. That’s why it’s important to stand up to bullies wherever they are and why we shouldn’t let anybody bully his way into the presidency because that is not who we are as Americans.”
It’s funny how people see what they want to see in the world. Trump supporters see a “leader” while I see a man who would embarrass the United States with his dark and overbearing angry tone.
Others say Clinton has led a negative campaign while this is the message I see from her.
Between threatening his opponent with jail time, attacking his own political party and more stories of walking into the dressing rooms of teenage pageant contestants, Donald Trump is pretty much approaching “The Final Meltdown.”
Campaigning in Nevada today, GOP White House hopeful Donald Trump announced he’s going to sue whoever put together a “nasty” campaign ad showing military veterans criticizing his statements about Purple Hearts, sacrifice and more.
“I saw today, I left the room and I saw a commercial where it was really a nasty commercial, totally made up about me with vets. There is nobody that loves the vets more or respects the vets more.
“They’re spending hundreds of millions of dollars on false commercials and it’s a disgrace. So what we’ll do — I guess we’ll sue them. Let’s sue them. Right? Let’s sue them.”
Trump never names the ad or the group running the ad that got his back up.
But he’s gonna sue them. Believe me. (sarcasm intended)
With Millennials and college students in mind, The Democratic Coalition Against Trump drops this dramatic new campaign spot.
Via press release:
The video uses Miley Cyrus’s “Party in the USA” to attack Trump for the support he has received from America’s enemies and is designed to engage with Millennials and college students. With almost 40% of them declaring their support for 3rd party candidates and only 31% currently supporting Secretary Clinton – a far cry from the 60% who voted for Obama in 2012.
“The fact that Trump has received support from Vladimir Putin, neo-Nazi leaders and North Korea is incredibly telling. These are not individuals who want to make America great again,” said Nate Lerner, Executive Director to the Democratic Coalition Against Trump and a millennial. “Further, ISIS continues to use Trump in their recruiting videos, which means a Trump victory will be good for them as well. Clearly they don’t fear Trump as much as he thinks.”
