A new anti-Trump ad is just things that candidate has said about women, read aloud by women. “A person who is very flat-chested is very hard to be a ten,” a brunette actress with glasses says thoughtfully.
Trump, a sentient wig possessed by an ancient evil, is also a veritable repository of vile thoughts about women, a group of people he openly despises. That’s the simple and effective premise of the ad, produced by Our Principles PAC, a conservative anti-Trump group that’s spent over $12 million so far in this election. The new ad was just uploaded Monday and has fewer than 1,000 views so far. It’s unclear whether it will also run on television; some of the language would make it, er, difficult.

The only listed donor on Open Secrets.org to Our Principles is Uline Inc., a shipping supplies company owned by Richard Uihlein, a major conservative donor who’s previously given to Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, and the anti-Trump Club for Growth. (Update, 4:45 p.m.: Fact Check.org notes that Our Principles was founded by Republican strategist Katie Packer, who previously worked with the 2012 Romney campaign, and says the majority of its funding comes Marlene Ricketts, co-owner of the Chicago Cubs baseball franchise.)
Our Principles’ previous ad, produced just two days ago, focused on violence at Trump rallies, including the assault of then-Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields by Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski:
