On Monday, Donald Trump released over social media his newest attack ad against Hillary Clinton which focuses on her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
Along with the ad, the presumptive GOP presidential candidate asks: “Is Hillary really protecting women?”
The black and white spot runs for about 20 seconds and features women’s voices, including Juanita Broaddrick, who accused Bill Clinton of rape. Bill Clinton is shown with a cigar in his mouth. The ad ends with Hillary laughing and the words: “Here we go again?”
In a Dateline NBC interview that aired in February 1999, Broaddrick talked about Clinton in 1978, then Attorney General of Arkansas, sexually assaulting her.
In a particularly emotional part of her interview, Broaddrick describes the aggressive way Clinton was allegedly kissing her while she was trying to ward off his advances.
“He starts to bite on my top lip and I try to pull away from him,” Broaddrick said in the interview. This is the exact segment Trump uses in his new attack ad.
Broaddrick sued Bill Clinton in 1999 to stop the White House from keeping files on her in order to “smear and destroy her reputation.” The suit was dismissed in 2001.
These days, Broaddrick uses Twitter — her account verified by multiple reporters — to criticize Hillary Clinton and continue to tell her story about the former president.
I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away.
