A new pair of ads from the Hillary Clinton campaign detail Donald Trump’s past statements on TV that basically show he is a lightweight unfit for office. One of the ads shows a clip from an interview last August in which Trump said he gets his military advice from “the shows.”
In the interview on “Meet The Press”, Trump says, “Well, I watch the shows. I mean, I really see a lot of great — you know, when you watch your show and all of the other shows and you have the generals.” The other ad includes an excerpt from an interview that aired on MSNBC in March, wherein Trump cited himself as his primary consultant.
“I’m speaking with myself … because I have a very good brain,” Trump said in the interview.
Each ad closes with the same idea…that unlike her opponent, Clinton represents a “steady leader in an unsteady world.” The Clinton campaign did not immediately respond to a CNN inquiry about how much was being spent on each ad.
The ads are airing in Nevada and Colorado, states won by Barack Obama in the previous two elections. But each state, with their diverse electorates, have also been competitive over the last two decades. And each — like the handful of other swing states that may well decide this year’s race — will be hotly contested by Clinton and Trump.
