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


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.


In 2014, before Donald Trump announced his run for president, we knew we had to do something different to address the fundamental challenge facing journalism: how hard-hitting reporting that can hold the powerful accountable can survive as the bottom falls out of the news business.

Being a nonprofit, we started planning The Moment for Mother Jones: A special campaign to raise $25 million for key investments to make Mother Jones the strongest watchdog it can be. Five years later, readers have stepped up and contributed an astonishing $23 million in gifts and future pledges. This is an incredible statement from the Mother Jones community in the face of the huge threats—both economic and political—against the free press.

Read more about The Moment and see what we've been able to accomplish thanks to readers' incredible generosity so far, and please join them today. Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $500,000 total, during this critical moment for journalism.
