A video of Ben Carson’s campaign posted on Friday has already gone viral, as it closes in on 2 million views.
The video called “Thanks Hillary” features members of Carson’s campaign staff finding creative ways to use the free copy of Clinton’s book Hard Choices, which she sent to her would-be Republican rivals.
The Democrat candidate revealed at a campaign stop in Iowa that she sent the GOP presidential field the book because they were all asking from the debate stage and otherwise what she had accomplished as secretary of state.
The Huffington Post reports:
“I have now sent each of them a copy of my book, Hard Choices,” Clinton said as the audience erupted in laughter. “You know, there were so many of them that they could have a book club.” Clinton and her staff came up with the idea shortly after the second Republican debate last month…
Along with each book, Clinton sent a personalized letter. “I understand that you and your fellow Republican candidates for president were questioning my record of accomplishment at your last debate, so I thought you might enjoy reading my book,” the letter read.”
Breitbart reports that Carson’s campaign manager Barry Bennett wanted to pass along a message to Clinton: “We wondered what she was going to do with all of those unsold copies. But after skimming the book it is now clear that dismal sales were caused by not properly classifying the book as fiction.”
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee reminded Clinton one of the choices she should not have struggled to make was whether to save Americans in Benghazi.

Sen. Ted Cruz said he was glad to return the favor and send her a copy of his book.
