The problem with so many of the GOP candidates trying to take down Donald Trump was that the people calling him a clown were too often clowns themselves. When Marco Rubio attacked Trump, it sounded like a grade-schooler calling his teacher names. When Ted Cruz tried, it sounded like one of Satan’s bumbling castoffs trying to take on a demon. They were completely impotent against Trump, neutered by his bullying bullshit.
On the other hand, you can call Hillary Clinton a lot of names (and I know, Bernie Bros. You have), but a clown is not one of them, so even though she’s not actually in this ad, it has the masterful ring of a puppet-master pulling the strings on those GOP also-rans and making them speak on her behalf.
Ultimately, it’s just a bunch of Republicans that no one voted for calling Donald Trump a bunch of terrible things, but now it has the weight of Aunt Hillary’s power.
Clinton is just getting started. In six more months, there’ll be nothing left but a husk and the still-beating heart Hillary plans to feed to Trump on Election Day. I know some of you are dreading the remainder of the election season, but I’m going to thoroughly enjoy watching Hillary dismantle this asshole.
