Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton fired both barrels at Donald Trump, her Republican counterpart in the U.S. presidential campaign, with an attack ad that is absolutely savage.

If you think you have seen real mudslinging in past elections, think again. There is going to be more mud thrown this year than all other election years combined. Me? I will be breaking out the beer and popcorn, and enjoy watching Trump and Clinton destroy each other. Another year for Democrats and Republicans, and one small step closer to Third Party voting meaning something.

Go Gary Johnson!!

If Republicans lose this easily winnable election, it will be because of Republicans.

I just signed up for Never Trump. Of course, that might have been dishonest, since I had already been planning to vote Libertarian. LOL.

Voting 3rd party will never mean anything. The Dems or GOP might change but it will always be 2 main parties as long as we use or FPTP voting system.

excellent hit piece

but i believe team hillary is unwise launching such ads at this time


the donald's poll numbers go into decline when he is not in the news

ignore him. he doesn't have any more republicans to vie against
he does not have the GOP to provoke his ire

instead of giving him some reason to get back in the news cycle, instead deal with the challenge to prevail this summer at the DNC convention. be policy focused


save the attack ads, and the money to run them until the weeks immediately before the national election

then blast him with both media barrels blazing. and make the stuff outrageous. don't even worry if what is presented is truthful or not. who the hell would know when its about tRump

and in the meantime, he has to find a way to climb back on the American stage. don't think tRump can be interesting without someone to attack. don't be that person

I was surprised. I am not sure it is 'devastating'.

But it is much better then I thought it would be.

People are too stupid to vote 3rd party. They're too worried about how everybody else is voting - and they listen to the media telling them you can only vote for someone if "they have a chance". It's not even good deception anymore. If you're still listening to them you're a liability.

Meh... hardly "devastating".

It's an add full of "insiders", all recently rejected, attacking Trump, the "outsider". Adds like this will do little to give people pause as has already been proven.

Big old "meh" to the ludicrous title. And this is coming from a big time Trump detractor. This isn't an effective ad in the least. Why?

1. No target audience. Is it aimed at Republicans and trying to turn them away from Trump? If so, it's ineffective, given the fact that they were the ones most plugged into the REPUBLICAN primary in the first place so these attacks on Trump aren't magically "new". If it's aimed at Democrats, the ones that Trump is likely to sway over likely don't give a **** what the likes of Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio or a guy named Bush has to say about Trump. If it's aimed at independents, again it's questionable based on the Democratic narrative that has been pushed so much that independents don't like republicans.

2. Nearly every single one of those people in that ad have sat there and intimated in some fashion that despite all the horrible things about Donald Trump, he'd STILL be a better candidate than Hillary. Basically letting this commercial be "This is how bad they think he is....and they think Hillary is EVEN WORSE".

Trump is the darling of the media. They love giving him free air time.

Don't you know Trump loves the Hillary campaign took the gloves off first.

Plenty of skeletons in her closet that we know of. I'm sure more will come up. There's so much controversy surrounding her and the surface hasn't even been scratched.

I'm pretty sure his war against women will target just one.

And then there's Bubba Clinton.

Good solid advice . We are so far away from November that attack ads right now are meaningless.

I would like to see modern versions of something like this - obviously much shorter

The idea that Trump does not hold Republican values can be very effective to remind those usual republican supporters not to vote Trump.

Hit the nail right on the head. The Donald is dead meat, the DNC and Hillary Clinton thanks the GOP for their excellent choice in candidates.

He is an Outsider because he has ZERO experience and is a Dyed In The Wool DEMOCRAT, not to mention everything they called him in the add.

I wouldn't expect any less from either. They would walk over a dozen dying children to get to the WH. A shame, a great stain on our nation.

I disagree completely. The ad is clearly aimed at Republicans...to remind them that even Republicans don't like Donald Cruz.

If that ad was savage, you might need a safe space.

I suspect that republicans lost the general election...during the primaries.

Some want to Ignore that simple Truth, they will learn the truth in November. Oh wait, no they won't, they will simply claim they were cheated out of the win by a huge conspiracy by the evil insiders, never forget with whom you are dealing.:wink:

It might help Trump, but only with the people who already support him. I think it will do a great deal of harm to him among the majority of republicans who support "insiders" though.

...

1. No target audience. Is it aimed at Republicans and trying to turn them away from Trump?

generally candidates target swing voters and independents. Yes, this ad will not make a difference among people who already support Trump, but it will harm trump among swing voters and people who didn't vote trump in the primaries.


If it's aimed at Democrats, the ones that Trump is likely to sway over likely don't give a **** what the likes of Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio or a guy named Bush has to say about Trump.
Maybe, maybe not.

2. Nearly every single one of those people in that ad have sat there and intimated in some fashion that despite all the horrible things about Donald Trump, he'd STILL be a better candidate than Hillary. Basically letting this commercial be "This is how bad they think he is....and they think Hillary is EVEN WORSE".
But the ad didn't show those parts. Maybe Trump should counter it with an ad full of clips of those people saying that "even though Trump sucks, he would still be better than Hillary". I'm sure that the third party candidates would appreciate that.
