Pro-Trump PAC runs ad quoting Hillary saying 'I believe in white supremacy' – but it's ridiculously out of context
- A new super pac ad tries to saddle Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama with racially insensitive comments
- In one short clip, Clinton is quoted saying 'I believe in white supremacy'
- But Clinton was speaking about school vouchers, and giving an example of parents who might want to send their kid to a 'School of the Church of the White Supremacists'
- Another clipped quote has President Obama saying straight ticket Democratic voters are selling 'our soul for a Christmas turkey'
A new radio ad by a pro-Donald Trump super PAC slashes context to make it sound like Hillary Clinton favors white supremacy.
The ad, by the Great America PAC, now being aired in battleground states, features Clinton saying, ''I believe in white supremacy.'
The statement, from when Clinton was a New York senator, came up while she was talking about school choice.
A new pro-Donald Trump super PAC quotes Hillary Clinton talking about white supremacy, but strongly implies that she believes in it without evidence
She used an example of a parent who wants to send their child to a 'School of the Church of the White Supremacists.'
Clinton is against private school vouchers and does not favor white supremacy.
The context of the statement was reported by Buzzfeed news.
WHAT HILLARY CLINTON ACTUALLY SAID:
'Suppose you were meeting today to decide who got the vouchers. First parent who comes says, 'I want to send my daughter to St. Peter's Roman Catholic School.' And you say, 'Great, wonderful school; here's your voucher.' Next parent who comes says, 'I want to send my child to the Jewish Day School.' 'Great, here's your voucher...' 'Next parent who comes says, 'I want to send my child to the School of the Church of the White Supremacist.' You say, 'Wait a minute. You can't send – we're not giving you a voucher for that.' And the parent says, 'Well, the way I read Genesis, Cain was marked, therefore I believe in white supremacy.' 'And therefore, you gave it to a Catholic parent; you gave it to a Jewish parent; you gave it to a secular private parent. Under the Constitution you can't discriminate against me.'
A transcript of Clinton's appearance on Fox News 'Hannity and Colmes' from 2006 obtained by DailyMail.com indicates that Clinton was using the white supremacist example as a possible risk of vouchers.
The ad is set to air in Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Minnesota and Michigan.
The ad is announced as a 'message from Barack Obama.'
The ad also has President Obama making what sound like controversial statements. Obama is quoted saying Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Minnesota and Michigan.
The ad also quotes President Obama making what sound like controversial statements. He is quoted saying straight ticket voting amounts to selling 'our soul for a Christmas turkey.'
He also discusses 'plantation politics.' It quotes him saying 'police brutality rampant ... black people in the worst jobs, the worst housing.'
The ad calls Clinton 'crooked Hillary,' a phrase used by Donald Trump, although the ad was not produced by the campaign
The radio ad also plays quotes from President Obama – but doesn't say he is describing someone else's supposed views – Smitty the barber
The statements were taken from a reading where Obama is actually quoting a barber, not expressing his own thoughts. The quote is from Obama's memoir, 'Dreams of My Father,' where he wrote about and reflected on supposed comments by Smitty the barber.
The PAC told Buzzfeed the ads are going on a test run. 'George W. Bush successfully targeted messages to Hispanics and African Americans during his 2000 and 2004 election wins,' said advisor Aaron Manaigo. 'However, this type of micro messaging is outside the norm for this election cycle.'
Trump has spent weeks trying to people away some of Clinton's minority support. He repeatedly references struggling African American neighborhoods he says are filled with crime, saying, 'What do you have to lose?'
The ad ends saying, 'We just can't trust Crooked Hillary,' – a phrase popularized by Trump.
