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.

Thank you!

We didn't know what to expect when we told you we needed to raise $400,000 before our fiscal year closed on June 30, and we're thrilled to report that our incredible community of readers contributed some $415,000 to help us keep charging as hard as we can during this crazy year.

You just sent an incredible message: that quality journalism doesn't have to answer to advertisers, billionaires, or hedge funds; that newsrooms can eke out an existence thanks primarily to the generosity of its readers. That's so powerful. Especially during what's been called a "media extinction event" when those looking to make a profit from the news pull back, the Mother Jones community steps in.

The months and years ahead won't be easy. Far from it. But there's no one we'd rather face the big challenges with than you, our committed and passionate readers, and our team of fearless reporters who show up every day.
