A new political advertisement capitalizing on Democratic Hillary Clinton's health scare last week is hitting the airwaves in Wisconsin.
The 30-second commercial is a ditty in which "C is for Clinton" is used to link her to controversies over her emails and the Clinton Foundation, as well as her health, and concludes with the pun "Don't you C that she's lying in so many ways."
The TV spot was paid for by Reform America Fund, a super PAC supported in large part by right-wing Wisconsin businessman and activist Terry Kohler, The Washington Post reports.
It wasn't only her political rivals who took advantage of her bout of pneumonia and the secrecy surrounding it, but comedians as well. ABC's Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night show said "these conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton's health would be a lot harder to believe if they didn't actually come true."
His rival on NBC, Jimmy Fallon, also got into the act, saying upon hearing that Clinton would appear in Women's Health Magazine that "Next month, she'll appear in Bad Timing magazine."
The public, however, did not appear to be overly affected by the issue. Although polls immediately after the incident showed a rise in those concerned about her health, the number of those who said the issue would affect their voting was negligible, according to Morning Consult.
In the survey, Clinton actually gained a percentage point in support from a week earlier, although her lead stayed at two percentage points higher than Republican Donald Trump.
