Hillary's New Ad About Trump's Sexism Will Make You Sad And Angry All At Once

by John Haltiwanger

Hillary Clinton just released a powerful new ad about Trump's long history of misogyny and generally awful comments toward women.

It's hard not to watch this without feeling sad and angry all at once.

To sum up the real estate mogul's feelings on women, Trump once said,

You have to treat 'em like shit.

Indeed, Donald Trump has frequently made it clear he does not respect women and consistently judges them by their appearance.

In fact, he recently said he doesn't think Clinton has the "presidential look," because he apparently feels the way a leader looks is what truly helps the country progress.

Who cares about their qualifications or intellect, right?

Trump also once said,

A person who is flat-chested is very hard to be a 10.

Simply put, he looks at a woman and sees a scale of one to 10.

The Republican presidential nominee has also made a habit of victim-blaming when it comes to the subject of sexual assault.

It will be interesting to see how he behaves when he faces Clinton during the first general election presidential debate on Monday.

Will he focus on Hillary Clinton's appearance or actually address the wide number of important issues we're facing as a nation?

In the past, Trump has exhibited frustration when he's been challenged by women.

When Megyn Kelly challenged him during one of the primary debates, he lashed out in a subsequent interview with CNN,

You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.

During a recent visit to Flint, Michigan, a female pastor interrupted Trump when he began criticizing Hillary Clinton in her church, she said,

Mr. Trump, I invited you here to thank us for what we've done for Flint, not to give a political speech.

Trump then lied about the event in an interview with "Fox and Friends," when he said the audience was saying, "Let him speak."

To top it all off, he insulted the pastor, calling her a "nervous wreck." This was far from the reality.

Trump can't seem to handle being put in his place by women, and instead of admitting when he was wrong, he reacts with insults.

In short, it's not an opinion to say Donald Trump is sexist, it's an irrefutable fact.
