Hillary Clinton’s New Ad Asks Is Donald Trump The President We Want For Our Daughters?

September 23, 2016  |  

 

I’ve been pretty vocal about my skepticism of Hillary Clinton. Still, I’m with her. There’s too much at stake with this election and I fear that a vote for Jill Stein or even those still holding out hope for Bernie Sanders, would be a vote for her opponent, Donald Trump. And that just can not happen. Trump, whether he’s adopted a persona during this election cycle or not, is the absolute worst. And honestly, a threat to this country’s national security. He’s made hateful, disparaging comments against every one from Muslims, to Latinos, to Black folks and perhaps most frequently, women.

It was the latter group that Hillary Clinton advocates for in her most recent campaign ad.

In it, she shows girls of various, ages, sizes and ethnicities looking in the mirror while Donald Trump’s words play in the background.

Words like,

“I’d look her right in that fat, ugly face of hers…”

“She’s a slob.”

“A person who’s flat chested is very hard to be a ten.”

At the end, the ad asks is this the president we want for our daughters.

Pretty powerful, poignant and, as this whole Presidential race has become, terrifying.
