Clinton’s Newest Video Takes Her Advice and Googles Whether Trump Was in Favor of Invading Iraq
During the debate two nights ago, Donald Trump insisted once again that he never supported the invasion of Iraq. He’s been saying that a lot lately and has been getting plenty of pushback from pundits and journalists who are calling his claims, well, “bullshit.”
Hillary Clinton didn’t use such colorful language to hit back at his claims about not supporting the invasion. Instead, she simply told the studio audience and viewers at home to Google it. Now, a new ad from The Briefing, the Clinton campaign’s designated news and blogging arm, is taking that advice.

The “Google search” performed in the video revealed that yeah, most people are refuting Trump’s claims that he was opposed to the war. Specifically, it showed the often-cited 2002 interview with Howard Stern during which Trump said he guessed he was in favor of the war.
The ad also “Googled” Trump’s comments on giving nukes to other countries like Japan, which he swore didn’t exist at the debate. He also insisted those quotes were fake earlier this year and CNN smacked down that argument with some fact-checking chyrons. The Briefing‘s search revealed that yeah, he said those things, too.
The searches went on, disproving his claims that he never made fun of disabled New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski and has no relationship with Vladimir Putin.
