The new black-and-white Trump video plays audio clips of two women, Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick. Both women, you may recall, have made very solid and credible accusations against Bill Clinton.
The audio is played against a black-and-white backdrop of the White House and an image of Bill Clinton with a cigar in his mouth. The ad then fades into an audio clip of Hillary Clinton cackling, and a new photo displaying the Clintons against a pitch black backdrop with the headline “here we go again?”
Zerohedge explains the new Trump ad, and its implications going forward.
In a video that some accuse of being crass and tasteless while others say will provoke Hillary Clinton to finally respond to a topic that she has so far eagerly avoided, but is most likely just a foreshadowing of many more such attacks to come, Donald Trump on Monday released a clip that uses audio of two women who have accused President Clinton of rape to attack Hillary Clinton.
While Trump has previously sought to use allegations of sexual misconduct against Bill Clinton to attack Hillary Clinton, this is the first time it has been encapsulated in internet media, and seeks to provoke an angry response by his presidential challenger.
A Trump senior adviser warned last week Trump’s attacks would escalate after Trump accused Bill Clinton of rape.
So far Hillary Clinton has declined to respond to the attacks, instead focusing on Trump’s issue-oriented remarks and slamming him as a “loose cannon” on foreign policy, although if the clip generates enough publicity Hillary (and Bill) may have no choice but to open a very unpleasant can of worms.
Willey, who accused Clinton of sexaul assault in 1993, can be heard from a 2007 interview with Sean Hannity saying, “No woman should be subjected to it. It was an assault.”
The audio then shifts to Broaddrick, an Arkansas woman who accussed Clinton of raping her in a hotel room when he was Arkansas’s attorney general.
