She says it's no different than the detergent commercial saying just "Shout" the stain out or the "Febreeze" commercial with the people sitting blindfolded in a pile of garbage and can't smell it.
She sees his lying as a brand slogan that misleads people or commercial that creates an illusion of reality that is highly questionable. I am struggling to understand how that that is OK for a brand or slogan, let along the president of the US. It seems she is saying trump is as fake as a slogan or commercial and if people believe his lies, then its their fault, not his. Another way of saying "If someone rips you off, its your fault".... And I suppose from her perspective Trump is a modern day Robin Hood, he steals from others (ie poor, minorities, democrats, liberals, other countries, etc), and gives it to his base. He is taking from others that rightly belongs to his base, thus everything he says or does is OK.
