The Democratic National Committee says an ad by Breitbart News — featuring House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in a bikini, on all fours, with her tongue sticking out — is “disgusting.”
The ad, which also features Gov. Jerry Brown’s head photoshopped onto Arnold Schwarzenegger’s body, is part of a campaign announcing the conservative outlet’s new vertical focused on politics in California.
“To say the least, the Breitbart News ad is foul, offensive, and disrespectful to all women,” DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said in a statement. “It is a disgusting new low and would be reprehensible against any woman – regardless of party. It’s no wonder the Republicans are having problems appealing to women. If GOP leaders are serious about their rebrand, then both their elected and Party leadership should condemn this outrageous behavior, call on Breitbart News to immediately remove the ad, and not continue to use this website as a forum for their views.”
Here’s the ad in question:
Actually this is fairly tame, compared to the slightly NSFW one with Mark Zuckerberg — which has Zuckerberg’s head photoshopped onto a topless woman with the tagline “Covering cali-sized IQs and cup sizes.”
