Campaign Ad: "Sacrifice"

The latest campaign ad from Hillary Clinton yet again puts Donald Trump's own words out front for the American voter to consider.

From The Hill:

The video, released Tuesday, shows veterans silently watching footage of the GOP presidential nominee making controversial remarks about the military.

“I know more about [the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria] than the generals do,” Trump says in one segment. In another, he mocks Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) time as a prisoner of war, sarcastically saying “he’s a war hero because he was captured,” before derisively adding, “I like people that weren’t captured, OK?”

Trump also answers a question about the sacrifices he’s made by bragging about his real estate buildings. A reporter responds: “You think those are sacrifices?”

I'm surprised the campaign didn't include Trump's now famous statement about "always wanting a purple heart" from a few months ago when a veteran handed Trump his own purple heart commendation. Trump added at the time, "This was much easier."
