Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has been using Hillary Clinton’s own words against her, but now he is bringing along President Barack Obama.
In his latest ad, released on social media, Barack Obama talked about Clinton’s infamous “3 a.m. phone call” commercial in 2008, explaining what he would want in someone answering it.
“Here’s the important thing about that 3 a.m. phone call — what you want is somebody who is, first of all, going to get all the facts and gather up good intelligence,” Obama said in the clip, which was from his 2008 primary battle against Clinton.
Cue Clinton after Benghazi, as Obama’s secretary of state: “We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video,” she said.
Of course, it’s now known that not only did the video have nothing to do with the attack, but the administration knew it was a planned Al Qaeda attack.
“The second thing we want is somebody who is able to analyze the situation, the cost and benefits of actions,” Obama says next.
Again, on Benghazi, a clip was shown of the survivors of Benghazi talking about the assault and aftermath.
“We were told to wait and stand down,” Kris “Tanto” Paronto said. “We were delayed three times.”
Finally, Obama said: “The most important thing that you need is somebody’s who is going to exercise good judgment.”
Once again, cue Clinton her personal email server: “I should have used two accounts, one for personal, one for work-related emails. That was a mistake.”

The video, posted Tuesday afternoon to Instagram, had already been viewed nearly 300,000 times by early Wednesday morning – definitely not good news for the Clinton team.
