Trump posts video of Clinton laughing over Benghazi flames
GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s latest video, posted online Monday, portrays Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton laughing over flaming images of the Benghazi attack.
“Hillary has been having a laugh at our expense for years,” reads text at the beginning of the video, followed immediately with a series of video clips of the former secretary of State chuckling.
Clinton’s laughter can be heard while several news clips fly across the screen highlighting several controversies, from Whitewater to the recent federal investigation into her private email arrangement while at State.
The final clip of Clinton laughing — taken from her testimony on Capitol Hill last month before the House committee investigating the 2012 terrorist attacks on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya — is overlaid on burning images from the attack, which left four Americans dead.
Her laughing in the video jumps to text to finish the ad: “Don’t let the joke be on us!”
Trump has knocked several Republican presidential rivals in other videos posted to his Instagram account in recent months, including ones asking whether retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson is a “violent criminal? Or pathological liar?” and another criticizing former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush on the issue of illegal immigration.
Clinton’s campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
