Yes, she actually barked like a dog.
At a campaign appearance in Nevada yesterday, Hillary Clinton told a story about an old campaign ad that featured a barking dog and then… proceeded to bark like a dog.
Hillary Clinton barks like a dog to slam Republicans
Clinton was in the middle of a riff about how, in her view, Republicans say things that are not true, when she remembered a radio ad that she said ran in rural Arkansas while her husband, Bill Clinton, was running for office.
“(Republicans) actually, with a straight face, say that the great recession was caused by too much regulation on Wall Street. They actually say that,” Clinton said.
Then she launched into her story.
“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,'” Clinton said. “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.
Here’s the video. Stay with it to the end:
