An anti-Donald Trump Super PAC released a new ad highlighting his thoughts on women by featuring some of the misogynist things the Republican presidential frontrunner has said over the last two decades.
The one-minute clip was released by the Our Principles PAC, a conservative anti-Trump group founded by a former Mitt Romney staffer. In the video, several women read out comments Trump has made regarding Princess Diana, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, comedian Rosie O’Donnell and other women.
The video begins with insults like: “bimbo,” “dog,” and “fat pig,” before the ad is introduced as “Real quotes from Donald Trump about women.”
“A person who is very flat-chested is very hard to be a ten,” one woman says.
“Women,” another actress says. “You have to treat them like sh–.”
Voters in five states, Florida Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, and North Carolina are heading to the polls Tuesday in what some call Super Tuesday II. Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton could emerge from Tuesday’s primaries as presumptive presidential nominees, setting up a one-on-one race for November.
Trump has faced sharp criticism over his sexist comments during the campaign. During a Fox news debate, moderator Megyn Kelly asked Trump about comments he made on women that included “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals.”
“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes,” Trump told CNN following the debate. “Blood coming out of her wherever.” That line too is featured in the new ad.
In a separate instance Trump used another disparaging line against former GOP hopeful Carly Fiorina saying: “Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that?”
And Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton also chided Trump as having a “penchant for sexism” after he said she got “schlonged” in 2008 against Barack Obama.
According to factcheck.org, Our Principles was founded by Republican strategist Katie Packer, who previously worked on the 2012 Romney campaign. The New York Times reports Marlene Ricketts, whose family owns the Chicago Cubs, recently made a $3-million contribution to the Super PAC.
The ad comes just days after Trump came under fire for the violent confrontations that have broken out at his campaign rallies. He has faced increasing calls to acknowledge that his campaign rhetoric, including the argument that Muslims dislike America and his talk of “punching” protesters, has incited some of the violence.
