The Clinton campaign has released a biting attack ad using the denunciation from top GOP leaders of Donald Trump's bashing of a Hispanic judge
Titled "GOP Disunity," the ad splices together remarks from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, current Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Tenn. Sen. Bob Corker, and Ana Navarro, a CNN contributor and former Jeb Bush surrogate, calling out the presumptive nominee for attacking Judge Gonzalo Curiel's fairness as a person of Mexican heritage in California lawsuits involving the now-defunct Trump University.
"Trump's statements are so extreme even other Republicans are offended," the clip begins, before showing video of a CNN interview with Trump
in which the real estate billionaire refutes the notion his objection to Curiel is "the definition of racism."
The ad the highlights Navarro's impassioned rejection — "I'm livid about it. If this is his strategy to win over Hispanics, he has a hell of a wake-up call coming to him come November" — and GOP leaders' firm stance against the Trump attack.
Gingrich calls the Curiel criticism "one of the worst mistakes Trump has made," saying it's "inexcusable," while Ryan declares he "completely" disagrees "with the thinking behind that," and McConnell asserts he "couldn't disagree more with a statement like that."
Trump, however, dug in Monday, hitting back at Gingrich — who's been a staunch supporter — and calling his critique "inappropriate."
