Turning Around GOP Themes

For those old enough to remember the Cold War (not to mention the 1985 film White Nights), this linkage of the Republican nominee to the USSR is striking: "Take it from one who knows.

The Hill reports:
A pro-Hillary Clinton group is out with a new ad contrasting remarks from her GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump with children singing the Pledge of Allegiance.
The 30-second ad spot from Priorities USA Action opens with a diverse group of children singing the pledge before showing Trump's comments on Mexicans importing drugs and crime.
It also includes Trump commenting on Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly last year, remarking on "blood coming out of her ... wherever," his remarks mocking a disabled New York Times reporter and the billionaire's boast of being able to shoot somebody in the street and not lose votes.
