The Clinton Campaign has hit a new low.
On Thursday, the Democratic nominee released an ad in which she claims that the Ku Klux Klan is actively supporting Donald Trump:

In reality, Clinton herself has found support amongst the white-robed racists.
Back in April, The Washington Times reported that members of the Klan are not only supporting Clinton at the ballot box, but have also donated money to her campaign:
“For the KKK, Clinton is our choice,” said Will Quigg, California Grand Dragon for the Loyal White Knights, Vocativ reported.
Mr. Quigg, the leader of the Klan’s California chapter, announced last month that he had abandoned supporting Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump in lieu of backing his likely Democratic opponent. The Klansman claims that members have raised more than $20,000 for Mrs. Clinton and have donated it anonymously to her campaign.
“She is friends with the Klan,” Mr. Quigg told Vocativ. “A lot of people don’t realize that.”
It’s also worth noting that Clinton once embraced late West Virginia Senator Robert Byrd, a former member Klan leader, as a “mentor”.
