Pro-Clinton Super PAC Hits Trump's Utter Lack of Human Decency in New NC Ad Buy

Hey, remember that time presumptive Republican Presidential Nominee Donald J. Trump mocked New York Times investigative reporter Serge Kovaleski for a disability — arthrogryposis — that severely limits the movement of his arms?


Yeah... that time.

Well, a Super-PAC supporting Presumptive Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton isn't going to let North Carolinians forget it, nor Trump try to slime-wiggle away from it.

From The Hill:

The main super-PAC supporting Hillary Clinton's presidential run has reserved $9 million in ad buys for North Carolina, bringing its total reservations to $145 million of ad spending for the general election.

Priorities USA announced the new Tar Heel State buys — which will run in the Raleigh/Durham, Charlotte and Greensboro markets — on Friday. It's the eighth swing state targeted by the super-PAC, after previous moves in Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Colorado, Nevada, New Hampshire and Iowa.


The ad is titled "Grace," after the child of Ohio couple Chris and Lauren Glaros. She was born with a spinal disability. The Glaroses describe their feelings about Trump after seeing his cruel crowd-pleasing antics at Kovaleski's expense. The ad previously appeared in Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Nevada, Colorado, Iowa and New Hampshire. 


Chris Glaros puts it this way:
"When I saw Donald Trump mock somebody with a disability, it showed me his soul, it showed me his heart. And I didn't like what I saw," he adds.
So say we all, sir. Republicans must be absolutely stoked for that Cleveland Convention in July.
