For a third straight day, Hillary Clinton mixed her campaign jabs at Donald Trump with an effort to swing more Senate seats to her party, as Democrats try to create a broader sense of election momentum with just over two weeks until Election Day.
And on today’s stop in Manchester, New Hampshire, Clinton was joined by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who has shown no worries about taking on Trump in recent months.
“Get this Donald,” Warren said to a crowd that was thrilled with every verbal broadside, “Nasty women are tough, nasty women are smart, and nasty women vote.”
At the debate last week in Las Vegas, Trump called Clinton a “nasty woman,” and Democratic woman have flocked to that phrase, throwing it back at Trump at every opportunity.
After lending her voice to Democratic Senate hopefuls in Pennsylvania on Saturday, and North Carolina on Sunday, today it was the Granite State, where Gov. Maggie Hassan is trying to knock off incumbent Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), who has struggled to deal with Trump’s campaign.
Clinton also rapped Trump for his criticism of the military effort now ongoing in Iraq to push back the Islamic State, which Trump complained about last night on Twitter.
“You know, this is a guy who says he knows more about ISIS than the generals,” Clinton said, adding a Trumpian type line, “I don’t think so.”
“He’s proving to the world what it means to have an unqualified Commander-in-Chief,” Clinton added. “It’s not only wrong, it’s dangerous.”
Clinton heads Tuesday to Florida for two days of campaign stops.
