During the 1964 presidential election, Lyndon Johnson shook up the race against Barry Goldwater with his controversial “daisy” ad implying that Goldwater couldn’t be trusted with national security in a nuclear world. The ad was pulled from the air after just one broadcast, on September 7, 1964, amid controversy. Fifty-two years later, a pro-Hillary Clinton group is reprising that theme, releasing a new ad suggesting that Donald Trump would lead the country into nuclear war.
The clip opens with Trump saying, “I’m really good at war, I love war,” and transitions into footage of nuclear explosions as Trump talks about his willingness to use nuclear weapons. Watch the commercial below and let us know your thoughts in the comment section.
