A new TV commercial from a Donald Trump-supporting super PAC mocks Hillary Clinton’s honesty, particularly her claim that she’s “always tried to be” honest with the American people.
The 30-second spot “Always” from Rebuilding America Now PAC makes no overt claims about Clinton’s honesty, nor does it offer any fact-checking of anything she’s ever said. It just shows clips of her trying to convince people she is honest, looking and sounding awkward and unconvincing in each segment.
“Why aren’t I 50 points ahead, you might ask,” she screams in the opening shot. “Well?”

Rebuilding America Now Political Action Committee is led by Ken McKay, a former senior advisor to Rick Scott during his first Florida gubernatorial campaign, who also has served as general counsel to the Republican National Committee and campaign manager to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
