The Democratic presidential nominee was hoping to generate momentum in the media before Sunday night’s debate. But then Hurricane Matthew came along.
The Category 4 hurricane is expected to pummel Florida’s east coast with winds of up to 140 mph and gusts of up to 165 mph.
The story on Thursday morning was all over the news, sucking time away from the presidential candidates. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, whose second home is Palm Beach County, doesn’t seem bothered by the distraction.
But Clinton seems very concerned the attention the hurricane is getting could take away from momentum she is trying to build, especially in Florida. So Clinton did what Clinton does best — she bought ads touting her campaign in order to capitalize on the natural disaster.

But no one has ever accused Hillary and her ilk of having too much class.
