Democratic candidate for Congress Sara Hernandez of Los Angeles is targeting President Donald Trump in her most recent TV ad, which asks: "how do you stop a bully?"

"It takes a classroom teacher," the ad answers, referencing Hernandez's time as a middle school teacher in the Teach for America program. She's one of 23 candidates running for the seat vacated by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, but raised the second-most in December, allowing for the early ad buy, which concludes with a call to "take Trump back to school."

California Rep. Barbara Lee has also called Trump a "bully," after Trump threatened to cut federal funding for the University of California at Berkeley after its decision to cancel a speech from Breitbart writer Milo Yiannopoulos.

"President Donald Trump cannot bully our university into silence. Simply put, President Trump's empty threat to cut funding from UC Berkeley is an abuse of power," Lee said in a statement, according to BuzzFeed News.

Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson also described Trump as a "bully," because of his "so-called judge" comment about the judge who suspended his executive order on immigration.

"He's a bully and he can't take defeat like a man," Ferguson said on KRIO Radio in Seattle.

"Calling a federal judge — whatever you think of their decision — a 'so-called judge,' it's insulting to our system of government, the judiciary," he added. "It's not right and frankly, you know, the president is on an island with comments like that."
