Fresh off of demonizing Democratic women who have accused the new US Suprme Court member from the Republican party….
Republicans mount attack’s against iconic Democrat’s Nancy Pelosi the probable incoming Speaker of House and Hillary Clinton who won the popular vote against Donald Trump by millions, but lost the election for President…
No one should be surprised at this….
One could easily assume that women are shuttled to the rear in Grand Ole’ Party politics….
Republicans will face a massive gender gap at the polls this November, but they’re still betting big on an ad strategy that demonizes two of the most recognizable women in American politics.
Over the past 30 days, close to 100 Republican-funded TV spots casting Hillary Clinton, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — or both — as villains have aired more than 34,000 times, according to data compiled for POLITICO by Advertising Analytics.

One spot running in Arkansas — the former Democratic nominee’s onetime home state — whacks the Democrat running in the 2nd Congressional District for “following the Hillary playbook” by taking money from Hollywood donors….
