A new ad from a conservative super PAC absolutely destroys Donald Trump, and it uses his own words to do the job. The commercial comes from Our Principles PAC, and it showcases ordinary everyday women reading a series of horribly sexist and misogynist quotes from current Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump.
A few choice quotes from the ad include:
- Trump calling women “bimbo,” “dog,” and “fat pig.”
- Trump opining that “A person who is flat chested is very hard to be a ten.”
- Trump attacking former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, asking, “Look at that face, would anyone vote for that?”
- Trump talking about Princess Diana: “She had the height. She had the beauty. But she was crazy.”
- Trump on the media: “You know it really doesn’t matter what they write, as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.”
These are the sorts of quotes that have terrified the Republican establishment about what Trump would do to the party in the general election. Even with candidates without misogynist comments like these on the ballot, Republicans have struggled to convince female voters. In 2012, 55 percent of women voted for Barack Obama, a number that was almost the same at 56 percent in 2008. Even when John Kerry lost the election in 2004, he still got 51 percent of the women’s vote.
You can hear the audio of Trump himself making many of these sexist comments in a story compiled by Buzzfeed. They went through Trump’s appearances on radio shows like Howard Stern:
Trump appeared upwards of two dozen times from the late ’90s through the 2000s with the shock jock, and BuzzFeed News has listened to hours of those conversations, which are not publically available. The most popular topic of conversation during these appearances, as is typical of Stern’s program, was sex. In particular, Trump frequently discussed women he had sex with, wanted to have sex with, or wouldn’t have sex with if given the opportunity. He also rated women on a 10-point scale.
This Super PAC ad is designed to derail Trump’s path to the Republican nomination, but it may be too late for that. But a similar ad, broadcast from coast to coast by Democrats and their affiliated super PACs would likely be extremely devastating.
