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.

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
