Clinton’s Newest Ad Shows Girls Looking in the Mirror While Trump Mocks Women’s Appearances

Wow.


Hillary Clinton released a new campaign video on Friday featuring young girls looking in the mirror, while Donald Trump’s various insults about the physical appearances of women play in the background.

“I’d look her right in that fat ugly face of hers” and “a person who is flat-chested is very hard to be a 10” are just two of the quotes captured in the ad, which ends with the question: “Is this the president we want for our daughters?”

The powerful new video comes as more Republican women are refusing to back the controversial nominee, while he continues to drive away support from women and minority groups across the country because of his record of making misogynistic and racist remarks.

In recent weeks, Trump’s campaign has tried to improve his standing with women, attempts that include the “Trump-Pence Women’s Empowerment Tour” and a late-in-the-game maternity leave plan that contradicts his past positions.

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
