Hillary Clinton played up the theory of “you are who your friends are” in reference to Donald Trump during a speech in Reno, Nevada, on Thursday. Clinton mentioned Trump’s past retweeting of racist Twitter accounts and his hesitancy to disavow former KKK leader David Duke’s endorsement as evidence of Trump’s improper temperament before pulling out the big guns: zeroing in on Stephen Bannon, Trump’s newly minted campaign CEO and the chairman of Breitbart News.
She offered the audience a “flavor” of what Trump’s friend Bannon is like, in the form of some of the headlines Breitbart News has published under Bannon’s leadership:

“I’m not making this up,” Clinton said. Sometimes “show, don’t tell” really is the best strategy after all.
