Paris Hilton's mother has blasted presidential candidate John McCain for "wasting money" on an advertising campaign which mocks her daughter.
The Republican last week (01Aug08) released a TV commercial that dubs rival Barack Obama a celebrity, and likens him to Hilton and Britney Spears.
And Kathy Hilton, who with her husband Rick donated thousands of dollars to MCCain's campaign, is furious.
She tells the Huffington Post, "It is a complete waste of the money John MCCain's contributors have donated to his campaign. It is a complete waste of the country's time and attention at the very moment when million of people are losing their homes and their jobs. And it is a completely frivolous way to choose the next President of the United States."
