The top pro-Hillary Clinton super-PAC, Priorities USA, released two blistering new anti-Trump advertisements on Monday night, attacking the presumptive GOP nominee’s attitudes toward women.

The ads, first broadcast by MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show and simultaneously released online, are the first salvo in the super-PAC’s massive new advertising campaign, reported by my colleague Pat Caldwell earlier today. In one of the ads, several actors mime derogatory (or downright strange) things that Trump has said about women, including comments about his daughter, Ivanka, and the Fox News presenter Megyn Kelly. The ad ends with, “Does Donald Trump really speak for you?”

The new super-PAC strategy—funded by a lavish $130 million purchase of airtime across battleground states—will focus on getting out the vote among Clinton’s key groups of supporters, particularly Latinos and African Americans. Of that $130 million, $35 million is set aside for digital advertising.

Let the auto-play digital media campaign video deluge begin.

Here’s the second ad:

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It's all hands on deck for democracy.
