Can you spot the embarrassing error in Hillary’s new ‘women in America’ ad?

It’s no secret that Hillary Clinton is courting the female vote. Back in March, speaking before a gala to celebrate 30 years of work by Emily’s List, an organization that supports Democratic, pro-choice women candidates, Clinton asked rhetorically, “Don’t you someday want to see a woman president?”

Notice she didn’t say president of what country, which may explain why her latest ad campaign, titled “Women for Hillary,” contains an impropitious scrap of video, a screen cap of which is shown below with captions turned on:

“Clinton’s campaign isn’t the first to use other countries’ footage during advertisements,” The Blaze notes, “and they certainly aren’t the first this campaign season. As Politico reported earlier in September, as advertisement from Republican presidential contender Jeb Bush’s super PAC Right to Rise used stock footage of Europe and Asia in an attack ad on Donald Trump. The Right to Rise ad pans to a stock photo of a sun rising in a field in Cornwall, England with the text, ‘choose a brighter path.’”

Here, for what it’s worth, is the entire video:
