Watch: Trump Just Roasted Hillary Over The Flames With 15 Devastating Seconds She Wishes Didn’t Exist

One presidential candidate’s latest campaign ad aims to prove that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s ongoing scandals are no laughing matter

The latest round of political hardball came in the form of a presidential campaign ad from Republican candidate Donald Trump. He is targeting Clinton, the Democratic front-runner.

“Hillary has been having a laugh at our expense for years,” the text reads as the Trump campaign video opens.

The video, posted Monday online, features Clinton laughing and chuckling as headlines of various controversies roll across the screen. Then, the video takes Clinton’s laughter during her testimony before the House Subcommittee on Benghazi in October and overlays it with images of the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi burning.

The video ends with the text “Don’t let the joke be on us!”

The ad refers to every scandal Clinton has been implicated in, as far back as the Whitewater real estate and banking scandal that dates back to the 1970s and 1980s. Clinton was never prosecuted for her role in that controversy, although several of her close friends and associates were convicted of various crimes.

Neither has Clinton been charged in any wrongdoing regarding the handling of her personal email server or her actions relating to terrorism that struck the Benghazi embassy and left four Americans dead. However, there are ongoing investigations, and congressional panels are looking into those instances.

This isn’t the first time Trump has hit hard at political opponents. He has posted videos over the past few months questioning the past of retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, who is polling second to Trump nationally. He also released a video critical of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush regarding his stance on illegal immigration, insinuating that the former governor is soft on the issue because he is married to a Hispanic woman.

Clinton’s campaign has not responded to Trump’s latest campaign ad.

See The One Racial Image Trump Just Shared That Instantly Ignited A Frenzy

Donald Trump shared an image on social media on Sunday about the black-on-black murder rate that is stirring controversy.

The candidate re-tweeted a graphic showing that 97 percent of murdered African Americans are killed by people of their own race.

The tweet took off, garnering nearly 7000 re-tweets and over 9000 “likes.” Not everyone was pleased with the graphic, however. Several labeled Trump a racist for posting it. One person wrote, “sorry, Donald but Presidenting is for grownups,” which over 1700 people liked.

The liberal Huffington Post reported that the graphic was inaccurate, but The Hill fact-checked against the Department of Justice (DOJ) statistics and found it consistent with findings concerning the black-on-black murder rate. “A DOJ study released in 2011 reported that 93 percent of black homicides were committed by other blacks between 1980 and 2008. In 2014, that figure was roughly 90 percent in 2014, according to the latest DOJ numbers,” The Hill reported. 

However, the graphic was not accurate regarding “Whites Killed by Whites” being 16 percent. According to the DOJ, “84 percent of white homicides were committed by whites between 1980 and 2008. That number was 82 percent in 2014,” The Hill noted.

Trump’s tweet came the day after a Black Lives Matter protester was kicked out of a campaign rally in Birmingham, Ala., after seeking to disrupt the event. Mercutio Southall, 31, began yelling, “Dump the Trump” and “Black Lives Matter” as the candidate was speaking to a crowd of thousands, according to CNN

Trump stopped his remarks, noting that the media will likely make a big deal out of the incident. “Yeah, get ’em the hell out of here. Throw him out.” the candidate said to the cheers of the crowd. 

Trump’s tweet highlighting the reality of black-on-black murders is in sync with what some prominent African Americans have pointed out. As reported by Western Journalism, famed Hollywood director Spike Lee said during a CNN interview earlier this month: “Here is the thing, I’m going to be criticized for this, but I don’t care. I’m all for ‘Black Lives Matter,’ ‘I Can’t Breathe,’ ‘Don’t Shoot,’ and I’m not speaking on behalf of 45 million African Americans, this is my own belief…You can’t ignore that we are killing ourselves too. You can’t ignore that.”

Celebrated civil rights leader Fred Davis, who marched with Martin Luther King, Jr., shares Lee’s sentiment. This past summer, the businessman placed the message, “Black Lives Matter, So Let’s Stop Killing Each Other” on a billboard next to his office in Memphis.

Just Revealed: Dems Are Getting Crushed By Republicans In An Area That Could Doom Them

As candidates in both parties vie for the support of donors who keep their campaigns viable, party leaders are likewise in a never-ending pursuit of capital. According to an exclusive report by Breitbart this week, one party is clearly leading that effort.

In a comparison of party expenditures over the last several months, the Democrat National Committee showed a net loss while its GOP counterpart remained squarely in the black.

As a recent example, the DNC in September came up more than $1.2 million short of meeting its $5.25 million in expenditures. Overall, the committee reportedly has nearly $7 million in debt and just $4.7 million in cash on hand.

Contrasting the party’s current situation with the same period leading into the 2012 presidential election, the facts look even grimmer. The DNC’s November 2011 report to the Federal Election Commission showed a party with more than $11 million in cash on hand.

A particularly vibrant primary season for Republicans has coincided with a much more optimistic outlook for the Republican National Committee. With less than $2 million in debt, the party has a reserve of more than $20 million in cash on hand.

Not only has the RNC spent the last 10 months taking in more cash than Democrats, GOP leaders have also been able to spend more than the DNC over the same period.

Gowdy Just Got Hit With A Lawsuit Over A ‘Serious Crime’- You Be The Judge Of How Serious It Is…

Bradley Podliska, a former staffer for the House Benghazi Select Committee headed by Trey Gowdy, accused Republicans on the committee in October of inappropriately targeting Hillary Clinton.

Some Democrats pounced on the accusation to argue that the Benghazi committee needs to be shut down. Representative Adam Schiff, D-Calif., a member of the committee, stated at the time: “It’s been clear that Secretary Clinton has been the true target of this investigation, and the Republican whistleblower who has come forward only provides further evidence of what has long been evident. It’s time to shut down the Benghazi select committee.”

Now, Podliska is back again, suing the panel and Chairman Trey Gowdy for responding to Podliska’s accusations in a way which he alleges defamed his character.

According to MSNBC, Podliska claimed that such a “serious crime” has “ended the careers of many professionals in national security-related industries.”

Committee Republicans had earlier stated that Podliska was fired after extended efforts to create a “hit piece” on Clinton “that bore no relationship whatsoever to the committee’s current investigative tone, focus, or investigative plan.”

Podliska is an Air Force Reserve major and is using a channel which allows military members an avenue to protect themselves against employer discrimination.

He is not seeking money as a part of the suit, but rather is hoping that the ruling will find that Gowdy’s narrative is false and bar Gowdy from repeating it in the future.

Podliska announced his claims that the committee was inappropriately targeting Clinton prior to her appearance before the committee in October.

What do you think of Podliska’s accusation that Gowdy and the Republicans on the committee have committed a “serious crime”?

Trump Just Said Eight Words That Strike Fear Into The Heart Of Every Republican

Since the early days of Donald Trump’s unconventional White House bid, many Republicans identified a potential and inherent threat his campaign posed to the party. Should he not secure the GOP presidential nomination, critics warned, he could launch a third-party campaign that would likely secure a Democrat victory.

“If he runs as an independent,” Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway said in August, “conventional wisdom is that he will guarantee Hillary Clinton wins.”

Though he sparked criticism at the beginning of the first primary debate, identifying himself as the only candidate willing to consider a third-party run, he subsequently assuaged some fears when he signed a party loyalty pledge.

Following a recent ABC interview, however, those worried about a rogue Trump campaign have new cause to fear. Asked if he is still committed to supporting the eventual GOP nominee, he replied:

I’m going to have to see what happens.

He went on to explain that his decision depends on his perceived treatment by those within the Republican Party.

“When I did this,” he said of signing the pledge, “I said I have to be treated fairly. If I’m treated fairly, I’m fine.”

Trump concluded that he is looking for a “level playing field” in the primary. According to early polling data, however, he noted that planning an exit strategy is premature.

“I’m leading every poll by a lot,” he said. “It’s not even a little bit anymore – it’s a lot.”
