Florida GOP using Hillary Clinton’s own words — OK, barks — to fact check her

The Florida GOP is using Hillary Clinton’s own words — or in this case barks — as a way of fact checking her.

In a new Republican Party of Florida video, Clinton is shown barking after clips of her making statements in the past. The video, according to a Florida GOP release, is meant to highlight why voters find Hillary Clinton “dishonest, untrustworthy and out-of-touch with the American people.”

During a speech in Reno on Monday, Clinton barked like a dog. According to CNN, she was in the middle of a rant about how Republicans can say thing that aren’t true when she remembered a radio ad that she said ran in rural Arkansas.

According to CNN she said:

“One of my favorite political ads of all time was a radio ad in rural Arkansas where the announcer said, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if somebody running for office said something, we could have an immediate reaction to whether it was true or not. Well, we have trained this dog. Well, the dog, if it is not true, he is going to bark. And the dog was barking on the radio and so people were barking at each other for days after that.”

“I want to figure out how we can do that with Republicans. We need to get that dog and follow them around and every time they say these things like, ‘Oh, the Great Recession was caused by too much regulation,’ arh, arh, arh, arh,” Clinton said, letting out a barking noise that caused the audience to laugh and some people to mimic her.

The RPOF is taking a cue from Clinton, hoping to cut through some of her claims. In the video, she’s shown talking about leaving the White House in debt and her email scandal. After each snippet, she is shown barking.
