An anti-Donald Trump super-PAC is targeting the Republican presidential front-runner for joking about dating his daughter in a radio ad in New York.
 
“Donald Trump says a lot of stupid stuff,” begins the 60-second radio spot “Stupid Stuff,” which will air on seven radio stations in the Buffalo area and western New York, according to BuzzFeed

“He told Rolling Stone that if he weren’t happily married and his daughter’s father, he’d — well, he didn’t finish the thought, but you can guess what he meant.” 
 
The ad goes on to criticize Trump for saying wages are too high in the U.S. and for his opposition to immigration. 
 
That same group last month met with controversy when it ran a Facebook ad featuring a nude photo of Trump’s wife, Melania, with the caption “Your next First Lady,” meant to deter conservative voters in Utah from voting for the GOP front-runner. 
 
The ad angered Trump, who blamed GOP rival Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) and launched attacks on Cruz’s wife, Heidi, in response. 
 
Liz Mair, founder of Make America Awesome, told BuzzFeed the latest attack is meant to show voters “the real, authentic Donald Trump.” 
 
“Obviously, in this political environment, there’s a demand for ‘authenticity,’ ” Mair said. 
 
“So we figured we’d give the voters what they want and put on display the real, authentic Donald Trump: a guy who’s padded out his inherited fortune by screwing average working people like those he’s begging to vote for him, financially, on a regular basis for decades now.”
