The Republicans have gotten Hillary barking mad, literally.
At a campaign stop in Reno, Nevada, Clinton yelped like a dog in the middle of a speech, after describing an imaginary dog that can detect Republican “lies” and “bark” in response.
“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,'” then she launched into her imitation of a dog bark multiple times. “Argh, argh, argh,” sending the crowd cheering.
Clinton got the idea of the lie-detecting dog from a political ad in Arkansas, back when her husband Bill Clinton was running for state governor there.
“One of my favorite, 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,” Clinton said.
In the Democratic primary, Clinton still has a lead over her rival, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, although that lead has narrowed after Sanders took a commanding victory in the New Hampshire primary, according to Real Clear Politics. She still has a double digit lead among Democrats nation-wide.
