WASHINGTON, Sept. 23 (UPI) -- A new ad unveiled Friday by Hillary Clinton targets parents with young daughters, interweaving images of girls looking in the mirror with clips of Donald Trump making negative remarks about women.

Trump's sound bites include him saying "I'd look right in that fat, ugly face of hers," a comment Trump made about comedian Rosie O'Donnell in 2006.

In other vignettes, Trump's callous remarks about women's physical attributes are also used. "A person who is flat-chested is very hard to be a 10," he said in a clip from a Howard Stern interview when he was evaluating the actress Nicolette Sheridan, and "does she have a good body? No. Does she have a fat [expletive]? Absolutely," a remark about Kim Kardashian.

As Trump is heard making the comments, a diverse group of teenage girls are shown evaluating themselves in the mirror.

At the ad's conclusion is a black slate with the question "is this the president we want for our daughters?"

The ad will air in multiple swing states, according to a campaign news release -- Ohio, New Hampshire, Iowa, Florida, Nevada, North Carolina and Pennsylvania -- as well as on national cable networks.
