Well, that was quick. Hillary Clinton's instantly infamous follow-up to the likewise infamous "basket of deplorables" comment has already been turned into a ready-made political ad against one of her fellow Democrats, who's recently been trying to distance herself from the increasingly toxic twice-failed presidential candidate.
A new ad run by the likely opponent of Democratic Senator Claire McCaskell, Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, uses Clinton's comments about "all that red in the middle where Trump won" she made at a conference in India last week to portray McCaskill as a Middle America-resenting elitist, like the woman she worked so hard to get elected president.
The ad opens with a teaser of Clinton's remarks in front of audience in Mumbai, India on March 10: "If you look at the map of the United States, there’s all that red in the middle where Trump won," says Clinton.
The screen then presents the statement used as the title shot: "In Claire McCaskill’s America…Hillary is the president."
