A pro-Clinton Super PAC debuted a new ad that features Republican nominee Donald Trump’s statements on his temperament during the first presidential debate Tuesday.
“I think my strongest asset, maybe by far, is my temperament,” Trump said during the debate. Priorities USA quickly created a video that attempts to cast doubt on Trump’s temperament, asserting that some of the statements Trump made during the course of his campaign bars the Republican nominee from the office of president.
“I would like to punch him in the face, I’ll tell ya,” Trump said, criticizing a protestor. Trump is also shown slamming terrorists, saying, “I would bomb the shit out of them.” The ad concludes with Trump’s memorable boast, “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters, OK?”
“Donald Trump became totally unhinged at the first debate which is the only possible explanation for him claiming his temperament is his greatest asset,” Anne Caprara, executive director at Priorities USA, said in an official statement.
“Donald Trump routinely threatens violence at campaign events and brags about ‘bomb[ing] the shit out of’ our enemies instead of having a real foreign policy. It’s clear Donald Trump lacks the temperament to lead this nation and is unfit to be President of the United States,” she added.
The ad is set to air in North Carolina, Ohio, Florida, New Hampshire, Iowa, Nevada, and Pennsylvania.
