Clinton has argued that Trump would be ill-equipped to handle issues that matter to women and girls
"Is this the president we want for our daughters?" the ad asks
Hillary Clinton’s campaign has a question for voters: Is Donald Trump the president we want for our daughters?
The Clinton campaign will begin airing a new ad Friday that intercuts Trump insulting women with shots of young girls looking in the mirror.
“I’d look her right in that fat ugly face of hers,” Trump says in the ad, a comment he made in 2006 about comedian Rosie O’Donnell. “She is a slob.”
The ad, entitled “Mirrors,” also features Trump saying “A person who is flat chested is very hard to be a 10” – a comment he made about actress Nicollette Sheridan – and “Does she have a good body, no? Does she have a fat (expletive)? Absolutely.” – a comment he made about Kim Kardashian in 2013.
While these comments are playing, the ad features a diverse group of young women looking in the mirror, appearing to evaluate themselves as Trump’s voice makes demeaning comments.
The end of the ad features a black slate with this question: “Is this the president we want for our daughters?”
The ad will air Ohio, New Hampshire, Iowa, Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and on national cable, according to a campaign release. The release did not say how much money was being spent on the ad.
Throughout her campaign, Clinton has argued that Trump would be ill-equipped president to handle issues that matter to women and girls.
“Anyone who wants to defund Planned Parenthood and wipe out safe, legal abortion has no idea what’s best for women,” Clinton said in June. “And after all, this is a man who has called women ‘pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ and ‘disgusting animals.’ Kind of hard to imagine counting on him to respect our fundamental rights.”
Clinton’s new ad is the latest that goes after Trump’s character and mimics an ad Priorities USA, her top-dollar super PAC, released in May that similarly questioned a comment Trump made about respecting women.
