New Trump Attack Video Ties Hillary Clinton To Cosby, Anthony Weiner

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump attacked Hillary Clinton on her advocacy for women’s rights in an Instagram video released Thursday that showed old photographs of the Democratic presidential frontrunner alongside scorned politician Anthony Weiner and comedian Bill Cosby.

The photograph Trump used of Cosby, who dozens of women have accused of sexual assault, was taken in 2000 at a campaign rally for Clinton’s New York Senate campaign. Cosby endorsed her, as The Washington Post reported.

“Women’s rights are human rights and human rights are women’s rights once and for all,” Clinton can be heard saying in the background as the images scroll. “Let’s keep fighting for opportunity and dignity.”

The video also included a photograph of Clinton speaking with Weiner, the former New York congressman whose career fell apart in a sexting scandal and who is married to Clinton aide Huma Abedin, in the background.

Old tabloid covers about the sex scandals the Democratic presidential candidate’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, experienced in office were also shown in the video.
