New Clinton Ad Shows How Trump’s Sexist Insults Affect Young Women

‘Is this the president we want for our daughters?’

The next president of the United States will make countless decisions that affect the lives of 157 million American women. He or she will have sway over their right to choose, health care access, child care costs, educational opportunities, take home pay, and whether or not they’ll go to war. In addition to serving as an executive officer, the president is also role model for countless young girls. So the latest ad from the Hillary Clinton campaign entitled, “Mirrors,” asks an important question about Republican nominee Donald Trump: “Is this the president we want for our daughters?”


The new ad, currently running in swing states and on national cable networks, shows young women looking in the mirror while Trump calls women “fat,” “ugly,” and “slobs.” Trump also makes disparaging comments about women’s breast sizes and body types while freely admitting that he doesn’t treat women with respect. On a deeper level, the ad asks what electing a man who delights in disparaging women says about our national character.

Reminding women of Trump’s sexism is a strong strategy for the Clinton campaign. A recent New York Times poll found that 55 percent of women don’t think he respects them and only 11 percent say a Trump presidency would be good for their gender. So the question remains: why would any woman decide to a vote for a man who holds her in such contempt?

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
