Watch: Pro-Clinton Super-PAC Releases Two Blistering New Trump Ads

They are part of a lavish $130 million campaign across battleground states.

Priorities USA


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:
