New Ad Features Trump’s Quotes about Women

 

A Republican super PAC released an ad Monday highlighting some of Donald Trump’s comments about women over the years. Produced by Our Principles PAC, the spot will air on national cable as “part of a 7-figure existing buy.”

In the video, women read quotes from Trump mocking the flat-chested, implying Megyn Kelly is menstruating, calling women “dogs,” and saying, “Women, you have to treat ‘em like [expletive].”

“This is how Donald Trump talks about our mothers, our sisters, our daughters,” the ad concludes. “If you believe America deserves better, vote against Donald Trump.”

(And if you think this ad is tough, wait until he gets to the general election.)

Our Principles PAC was founded by Katie Packer, a former deputy campaign manager for Mitt Romney. Since coming out to oppose the GOP frontrunner, she has been deluged with death threats by Trump fans.

There are 43 comments.

    Scott Walker, Rick Perry, Bobby Jindal, Jeb Bush, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, & Carly Fiorina and this boor is the front runner for nomination. I could not be any more appalled and embarrassed.

    To be honest, that ad wont work.

    First Trumps’ supporters don’t care.

    Second its paid for by establishment hacks.

    “I’ll supply the funds, and she’ll take care of the kids.”

    I think that answers the “how can Donald be so bad if he has such great kids” comments I’ve seen.

    All right, I’m going to flip on this. How many primary voters are going to see this, let alone be influenced by it? I understand that there’s some cash to be had by licensing it to the Clinton campaign if and when Trump is the nominee, but it’s a bridge too far at this point. So shoot me.

    Primary voters concerned about electability and not in the bag for Trump are persuadable.

    I’ve made some nasty comments about men myself, although not nearly as bad as those made by a lot of my more feminist friends. That doesn’t mean I don’t love ’em. Trump hires women and pays ’em better In some cases than men, I’ve read. I don’t like any of these ladies on first sight. And I guarantee men will hate them all. And how long ago, and in what context, were these comments made? Don’t we all, over our lifetimes, dis the opposite sex? This is a large Who cares.

    Undoubtedly, but my question had more to do with who sees it and acts on it. I’m not sympathetic to Trump, but those who question damage to the Republican “brand” from this type of thing have at least a partial point.

    The point of the ad is to argue that Trump himself damages the brand. If you buy the argument, it means you care about the brand. The people who ran the ad assume some GOP primary voters care about the brand.

    And that enough of them see it and act on it to overcome the generalized damage to the brand and the use to which it might be put in the general–a questionable assumption IMO. I would have no problem with this ad coming directly from Cruz or Rubio–all’s fair there, but from a PAC with ties to Jeb! and Romney, less so.

    It’s not directed at Trump supporters, no one cares who paid for it and I’m sure women find it very emotive.

    It’s just the tip of the iceberg. This man is going to be ripped to shreds.

    This will not harm Trump in the primaries. His support has not dipped in the slightest after any attack, revaluation, or argument about his suitability to the job. No matter how well an attack is publicized or how much time and money is behind it, Trump’s support only grows. He is untouchable in his supporters eyes. This attack will land as ineffectively as all the rest.

    Not a very effective ad, as far as I am concerned. But I am neither a woman, nor particularly passionate about men who say idiotic things in public.

    I have trouble believing this line of attack will work. These quotes go back some time, will they be considered new revelations?

    Many of them have already been discussed in the media at length and there is hardly a shortage of parody videos out there attacking Trump with is own words. Efforts to damage him from this angle do not appear to have been effective to date, it is difficult to believe quotes of Trump being crass or vulgar will be a shock to anyone.

    If one wants to weaken support for Trump this does not seem an promising method of doing so.

    Roberto: I have trouble believing this line of attack will work. These quotes go back some time, will they be considered new revelations?

    These quotes – especially compiled in concentration – will be new to those who don’t follow politics outside the flood of ads that wash over them at election time. That’s not a small number of voters but they are less significant in primaries than general elections.

    In any event, those who suggest this ad won’t change the minds of committed Trump supporters are mostly right. But committed supporters aren’t the target of this ad, which is meant to appeal to undecideds (and weak Trump supporters) and especially to women. The purpose is not to peel away Trump’s core support – the folks behind this are undoubtedly aware that Trump’s boast he could “shoot somebody and not lose voters” is disturbingly accurate. The purpose is to keep him from gaining new support.

    So far it’s working. Trump continues to come up well short of the electoral majorities he needs to secure the Republican nomination… and ads like this are just more bricks piled onto his electoral ceiling. You can bet his ugly, ultimately losing campaign would love not to have it running.

    No one is “freaking out”, and these comments are not “politically incorrect”. They are, in fact, vulgar – and they are a window into the character of the man who uttered them. If we can talk about Harry Reid referring to Obama’s “negro dialect”, and Obama himself saying that he wanted to “fundamentally transform” the USA, then we can talk about Trump statements such as these.
