Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has released a new attack ad aimed at Republican rival Donald Trump.

The video, which can be viewed on her Twitter account, declares that the former Apprentice star is supported by racist hate groups such as the KKK.

But social media users and critics of Clinton were not going to let her off the hook that easily for making such a drastic claim.

They responded by posting a photo that points out the hypocrisy of the Democratic nominee trying to link Trump to the KKK.

The image depicts Clinton kissing Sen. Robert Byrd, a former Klansman, whom she called her “friend and mentor.”

In addition to being posted on Breitbart’s Facebook page, many people shared variations of the image on Twitter.

The photo of Clinton kissing the former Klan member was taken in 2004.

Byrd joined the KKK when he was 24 years old and referred to African-Americans as “race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”

He did denounce the Klan later in his life, referring to his decision to join as “the worst mistake of my life.” But when he served as a West Virginia senator, he voted “no” against the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

After Byrd’s passing in 2010, the State Department released a video in which Clinton is seen praising the late senator, calling him her “friend and mentor,” without any mention of his KKK past.

“Senator Byrd was a man of surpassing eloquence and nobility,” she said. “And I will remember him for many things, but most of all, for a heartfelt comment he made to me in the dark days following the attack on our country on 9/11. My state of New York was reeling and we were scrambling to provide support and relief. ‘Think of me as the third senator from New York,’ he said. And he meant it. Thanks to the leadership of Senator Byrd, who chaired the Appropriations Committee, New Yorkers and Americans got the help we needed. I will never forget his devotion and his friendship in that critical time.”

Clinton continued her praise, saying, “It is almost impossible to imagine the United States Senate without Robert Byrd. He was not just its longest serving member, he was its hear, its soul, and its historian. From my first day in the Senate, I sought out his guidance, and he was always generous with his time and his wisdom. I admired his tireless advocacy for his West Virginia constituents, his fierce defense of the Constitution and the traditions of the Senate, and his passion for a government that improves the lives of the people it serves.”
