The top pro-Hillary Clinton super-PAC, Priorities USA, released two blistering new anti-Trump advertisements on Monday night, attacking the presumptive GOP nominee’s attitudes toward women.

The ads, first broadcast by MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show and simultaneously released online, are the first salvo in the super-PAC’s massive new advertising campaign, reported by my colleague Pat Caldwell earlier today. In one of the ads, several actors mime derogatory (or downright strange) things that Trump has said about women, including comments about his daughter, Ivanka, and the Fox News presenter Megyn Kelly. The ad ends with, “Does Donald Trump really speak for you?”

The new super-PAC strategy—funded by a lavish $130 million purchase of airtime across battleground states—will focus on getting out the vote among Clinton’s key groups of supporters, particularly Latinos and African Americans. Of that $130 million, $35 million is set aside for digital advertising.

Let the auto-play digital media campaign video deluge begin.

Here’s the second ad:

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
