A super PAC supporting Hillary Clinton launched a website dedicated to linking to media fact-checks that found Donald Trump guilty of “Four Pinnochios” or “Pants on Fire” statements.
Made public on Thursday, Trump Lies is aimed at underlining the presumptive Republican nominee’s “endless falsehoods and history of fraud” using fact-checks from the Washington Post and PolitiFact.
“People think all politicians lie,” said Brad Woodhouse, president of Correct the Record in a phone call with media previewing the site. “Well, Donald Trump is of a completely different order and it helps draw the entire picture of him being a fraud and a con man.”
To that end, Correct the Record created a 39-minute video featuring footage of Trump’s comments and media coverage dissecting them, set to the entirety of classical composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Symphony No. 41, also known as the “Jupiter Symphony.”
The effort is in line with the Clinton campaign. In a foreign policy speech earlier this month, Clinton said Trump’s ideas on the subject were a mix of “bizarre rants, personal feuds and outright lies.”
Meantime, Rebuilding America Now, a super PAC supporting Trump, has released a TV ad that intersperses footage of Bill Clinton talking about the Monica Lewinsky scandal with Hillary Clinton talking about her private email server.
