Donald Trump has referred to a Ms. Universe as “Miss Piggy,” said putting a wife to work was “a dangerous thing” and, as we learned yesterday, called a former reporter for the Inquirer the c-word.

Not a fan of what you’ve been hearing out of him? Hillary For Pennsylvania is asking residents of the Commonwealth to sign a petition denouncing Trump and his rhetoric regarding women. According to Clinton’s Pennsylvania campaign the goal of the petition is to get him “to cease his vulgar and insulting statements about women.”

“When Donald Trump attacks a woman for her looks or her heritage,” Senate candidate Katie McGinty said in a statement, “he proves just how temperamentally unfit he is to be President of the United States.”

You can sign the petition here.
