Hillary Clinton is taking no prisoners.

On Friday, the Democrat’s campaign released a biting attack ad that features a series of misogynist comments made by her opponent.

The 30-second ad, called “Mirrors,” shows clips of young girls looking dissatisfied with their appearances, interspersed with clips of degrading things Donald Trump has said about women in the past, such as “she’s a slob,” “she ate like a pig,” and “a person who’s flat-chested—it’s very hard to be a 10.”

In the video, an interviewer asks Trump, “Do you treat women with respect?” The GOP nominee responds, “I can’t say that either.”

At the end of the clip, a title card pops up posing a question: “Is this the president we want for our daughters?”

This is not the first time Trump’s misogynistic comments have been in the spotlight—indeed, his treatment of women has been a recurring theme this election season.
