Trump fumes after pro-Clinton super-PAC uses his own words against him

·Senior Writer

In an exchange we can expect to see almost daily between now and November, a super-PAC supporting Hillary Clinton released an ad using Donald Trump’s own words about women against him, and the presumptive Republican nominee quickly responded on Twitter.

The 30-second spot, produced by the pro-Clinton Priorities USA, features women wearing T-shirts with Trump’s head on them lip-syncing some of his most controversial sound bites. It begins with his infamous comments about Fox News’ Megyn Kelly following the first GOP debate last summer.

“You could see blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her … wherever,” Trump is heard saying in the ad, titled “Speak.”

Other remarks featured:

“Does she have a good body? No. Does she have a fat ass? Absolutely.”

“You like girls that are five-foot-one — they come up to you-know-where.”

“If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”

“I view women as flat-chested as very hard to be a ‘10.’”

“And you can tell them to go f*** themselves!”


“Does Donald Trump really speak for you?” a female voiceover asks at the end of the piece.

Trump fired back, taking issue with how one of his quotes was portrayed.



“The pathetic new hit ad against me misrepresents the final line,” he tweeted. “‘You can tell them to go BLANK themselves’ was about China, NOT WOMEN!”



Trump then used the attack to pivot to Bill Clinton’s scandal-tinged presidency.



Meanwhile, the Hillary Clinton campaign released a separate online ad using Trump’s own words about foreign policy against him, including a memorable exchange with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski in March.

“We have some dire foreign policy issues percolating around the world. … Who are you talking to consistently so that you are ready on Day One?” Brzezinski asked Trump.

“I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things,” he replied.



“Being president isn’t like being on a reality show,” Clinton said in a tweet accompanying the ad. “We can’t afford a candidate who treats it like one.”
