Hillary Clinton’s claim during Saturday’s debate that ISIS is using videos of Donald Trump as a recruitment tool has already been proved false. But it’s now emerged that one of the terrorist group’s most recent recruitment commercials features an image of someone very close to her, personally and politically.
A four-minute video released by ISIS last month, entitled “No Respite,” includes an image of Bill Clinton, who is called a “fornicator” — a reference to his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, among many others.
The propaganda piece also shows President Obama and former President George W. Bush, who is called a “liar.” The terror group asserts in the high-quality short that the U.S. military, though large in number, is ineffectual against Muslim armies.
Clinton’s appearance in the video is especially ironic given his wife’s shocking claim during the weekend debate that ISIS recruiters “are going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists.” (RELATED: Clinton Campaign Spins Candidate’s Remarks About ISIS Using Trump Videos To Recruit Terrorists)
Clinton said that Trump’s recent comments calling for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. made the Republican frontrunner ISIS’ “best recruitment tool.”
But after fact-checkers searched for such a video featuring Trump and came up empty, the Clinton campaign was forced to admit on Sunday that the candidate’s claim was inaccurate. Campaign chairman John Podesta asserted that Clinton stands by her remarks. He argued that since Trump appears on television in the Middle East, he is likely being used to inflame Muslims.
Trump responded to Clinton’s accusation by calling her a “liar” and demanding an apology.
