Hillary:"There are a lot of bullies in this world. The last thing we need in one in the White House"

Hillary's new ad compares Trump to famous on-screen bullies. Her accompanying tweet is perfect!

"There are a lot of bullies in this world. The last thing we need is one in the White House"

Thank you, Hillary!

GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump joins a roster of famous movie bullies in a new Hillary Clinton attack ad that draws from “A Christmas Story,” “The Karate Kid” and “Back to the Future.”

The latter film is an especially good choice because, as The Huffington Post reported last year, “Back to the Future” bully Biff Tannen was inspired partly by Trump in the first place.

See the new ad here:

Clinton asked the little girl why the issue of bullying was on her mind. Fabulous!

“Back to the Future Part II” depicts blond Biff as a rich casino magnate on his third wife in a dystopian 1985. Screenwriter Bob Gale confirmed that rich Biff had been based on Trump in an interview with The Daily Beast last year.

I'm so glad Hillary is calling him out. I love her for that. As Michelle said in her brilliant speech about lost common decency, what is often forgotten is that "it hurts". We are so lucky to have Hillary because she really gets it and is standing up to it for all of us. The little girl in the ad speaks for so many people and Hillary sees that and cares. We've never, ever had a candidate for President do that before. It is incredible.

Your post proves you don't measure up to the standards you would impose on her and other people.
