Pro-Trump group ad seeks to pit Michelle Obama against Clinton

Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton host the International Women of Courage Awards Ceremony at the State Department in WashingtonBy Ginger Gibson WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A Super PAC backing Republican Donald Trump is buying TV airtime in parts of Florida beginning this week for a commercial aimed at using first lady Michelle Obama’s words against Hillary Clinton to erode the Democratic presidential candidate’s support from women voters in the battleground state. The ad – which the Super PAC has already been running online – shows Michelle Obama in 2007 saying, “If you can’t run your own house, you can’t run the White House,” which could be taken as a reference to infidelity by Clinton’s husband, Bill Clinton.
