This new Hillary ad is arguably one of the best ads we’ve seen this entire election. It’s deeply moving and the anti-bigotry message is spot on. This one is definitely a must-see.
This incredible new ad was just released by the Clinton campaign. It features Khizr Khan and it is arguably one of the best ads we’ve seen this entire election. It is deeply moving and connects with people on an emotional level. It is poignant and heart-breaking, and the message is spot on. This one is definitely a must-see.
The ad tells the story of Khizr Khan’s son, Captain Humayun Khan. Captain Khan was a 27-year-old Muslim-American serving in Iraq who sacrificed his own life to save his entire unit from a suicide bomber. He is an American hero.
You probably remember Khizr Khan and his wife from the DNC Convention where we first heard their incredibly sad story. They are a gold star family who sacrificed everything for this country, and they deserve our respect. But unfortunately that didn’t stop Donald Trump from repeatedly attacking them following their appearance at the convention.
This ad really brings a human face to a group of Americans who have been continually demonized by Trump. It’s a major statement about us as a country and how we handle the bigotry of someone like him.
In this ad you can feel the father’s pain as he tells the story. Clearly this is a difficult thing for him to talk about. It’s heart-breaking to watch. But he effectively makes a powerful statement by telling his story. And he brings it all together by asking one simple question.
“I want to ask Mr. Trump, would my son have a place in your America?”
