Hillary Clinton’s campaign has turned to an iconic political ad to remind voters — could Donald Trump ever be trusted with the nuclear code as president? Click through to take a look at ‘Daisy’, Hillary’s new thought-provoking ad.
Hillary Clinton, 69, enlisted a throwback to make her stance on Donald Trump, 70, very clear. The ad implies that Trump should never become the president and have access to the nuclear codes, because of his fiery, temperamental behavior! Hillary got the message across to voters by invoking the iconic “Daisy” ad from 1964, bringing in the real-life Daisy herself!
“Daisy” was a political ad from the Lyndon B. Johnson campaign in 1964, which only ran on television once, but made and unforgettable mark on history. In the effective ad knocking rival Barry Goldwater‘s campaign, a little girl is seen picking petals off a daisy, as a countdown to the launch of a nuclear bomb blares in the background. It’s haunting. The little girl from that ad is all grown up now, and is actually named Monique Luiz. Monique starred in Hillary’s new ad, voicing her support for the Democratic candidate.
“That was me in 1964,” Monique says as she tears up. “The fear that we had as children of nuclear war, I never thought we would have to deal with that again. And to see that coming forward again in this election is really scary.” The ad cuts to various footage of Trump talking about using nuclear weapons, including saying “I want to be unpredictable,” and “bomb the sh*t out of them.” It’s horrifying.
Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller told New Day that the ad is “a sad and a desperate attempt” to distract from the new Hillary email controversy. “The fact of the matter is, the world has become a less safe place during the Obama and Clinton administration,” he told host Chris Cuomo.
