Eldridge Ad Reveals Serial Harasser Trump in Graphic Detail; John Boozman is “Trump Enabler”

LITTLE ROCK – Former U.S Attorney and candidate for U.S. Senate Conner Eldridge released a shocking web ad today that shows in graphic detail the lurid and harassing language of Donald Trump and his slurs against women. The ad, which will run extensively on Facebook, also features the recent statement of support for Trump by U.S. Senator John Boozman, Eldridge’s opponent in the Arkansas U.S. Senate race.

You can see the ad here:

The ad features Trump’s dehumanizing and serial harassment of women in his own voice with declarations such as “she ate like a pig” and “I’d look her right in that fat ugly face of hers,” denunciations of “flat chested” women and those with a “boob job,” and rarely seen video of Trump joking with radio personality Howard Stern about how he has no respect for women.

Trump’s comments are juxtaposed with Senator John Boozman’s statement that he would support Trump as the Republican presidential nominee because “it certainly would be a lot better presidency.”

“Donald Trump has repeatedly spouted offensive comments directed at women,” said Eldridge, “This has to be called out for what it is: serial harassment. I’ve prosecuted domestic violence and cases in which criminals have harassed and abused women in horrible ways, including verbally. A Senator should strongly condemn these comments.”

“Instead,” Eldridge continued, “Senator Boozman is an enabler of Donald Trump’s reprehensible conduct. For John Boozman to unequivocally state that he would support Donald Trump for President speaks volumes about Senator Boozman’s willingness to put political parties and partisan politics ahead of common decency toward women.”

“As a U.S. Senator, John Boozman is rarely seen in Arkansas. And now his judgment and humanity have gone missing, too. One cannot look at this collection of statements by Donald Trump and not be appalled. But it would appear Senator Boozman is the exception to the rule.”
