GOP PAC ad turns Clinton’s debate words against her

A new ad from a Republican super PAC uses Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s remarks in the first presidential debate of 2016 to hit her record as secretary of State.

“Hillary Clinton brags about her experience,” the spot’s narrator says, referencing Clinton’s boast that she visited “112 countries” while at State.

“A failed reset with Russia. Supporting the nuclear deal with Iran. A terrorist attack in Benghazi, [Libya]. Four Americans dead.”

The commercial then shows Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump hammering Clinton’s tenure at State during their contest late Monday.

“Hillary has experience, but it’s bad experience,” Trump says of his Democratic rival.

Future 45 is a super PAC founded by the Adelson and Ricketts families, both of whom are major GOP donors. They have only recently gotten involved in the presidential race. The Ricketts family has donated $1 million to the group, while the Adelsons plan on giving $5 million.

Trump reasserted during Monday evening’s contest that Clinton lacks the stamina for the presidency.

“Well, as soon as he travels to 112 countries and negotiates a peace deal, a cease-fire, a release of dissidents, an opening of new opportunities in nations around the world, or even spends 11 hours testifying in front of a congressional committee, he can talk to me about stamina,” she replied during the contest at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y.

Clinton then struck back by accusing Trump of sexism in past remarks concerning women’s physical appearances.

“This is a man who has called women pigs, slobs and dogs. Someone who has said pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers, said women don’t deserve equal pay unless they do as good a job as men.”
