A new video posted on Donald Trump’s Instagram attacks Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy credentials by showing her—out of context—barking like a dog. The spot opens with the words “When it comes to facing our opponents,” then shows Russian president Vladimir Putin performing martial arts. “Democrats have the answer,” the video goes on, cutting to a clip of the Democratic presidential frontrunner yelping like a canine. It’s followed by another spliced clip of Putin laughing.
The video of Clinton comes from a February rally in Nevada. She was telling a story about a political radio ad from her time in Arkansas that used a barking dog to indicate when politicians were lying. She then imagined how the ad would play today with rhetoric from the GOP field, and she acted out the fact-checking barks.
Though Trump’s ad warns that electing Clinton would make America a “punchline” on the world stage, global leaders, including British Prime Minister David Cameron, have spoken out against the GOP frontrunner.
