YouTube has ‘unlisted’ and added a warning to the new Donald Trump ad entitled “Dangerous” posted Tuesday morning by the Team Trump account that focuses on national security and warns that Hillary Clinton does not have the stamina and judgment to keep America safe.
YouTube also placed the ad behind the “Restricted Mode” firewall that blocks “inappropriate content’.
YouTube statement added to the video’s page: “This video is unlisted. Be considerate and think twice before sharing.”
The ad features photos and footage of Clinton coughing and in physical distress being aided walking up stairs and collapsing as her Secret Service agents drag her to a waiting vehicle.
The Drudge Report featured a link to the video Tuesday, bypassing YouTube’s effort to keep people from viewing the Trump ad.
UPDATE: YouTube has also placed the Trump ad behind the “Restricted Mode” firewall.
Trying to view the Trump ad with ‘Restricted Mode’ enabled returns the message and image seen above.
YouTube describes ‘Restricted Mode’as hiding ‘inappropriate content’: “Restricted Mode hides videos that may contain inappropriate content flagged by users and other signals. No filter is 100% accurate, but it should help you avoid most inappropriate content.”
