Will Hillary Clinton’s latest ad, which attempts to scare people about Donald Trump when it comes to national security, actually wind up winning him votes? Today’s Morning Joe opened by playing the ad, which features clips of Trump making various bellicose statements, e.g., “I would bomb the s— out of them.”

Mika Brzezinski found the ad “very strong: it tweaks on every level.” Better than twerking on every level, we suppose. “It’s scary,” said Mika as, in a bit of unintentional humor, she imitated the “whoosh” sound of the fighter jet at the end of the ad. But query: could the ad wind up winning more votes than it loses him? After eight years of “leading from behind,” of foreign policy disasters from Russia to Syria to Libya to Iran, could America be ready for a blunt-talking president? Remind me: who was the president who, speaking of the Cold War, said “we win, they lose?”

Check out the video and the screencap for Mika’s imitation of that fighter jet!

So . . . what do readers think? Will Hillary succeed in scaring voters, or will at least as many think, yeah, after Obama/Clinton, we could use a kick-butt president?

HILLARY CLINTON AD: In times of crisis, America depends on steady leadership.

DONALD TRUMP: Knock the crap out of them, would you? Seriously.

AD: Clear thinking.

TRUMP> I know more about ISIS than the generals do, believe me.

AD: And calm judgment.

TRUMP: And you can tell them to go [bleep] themselves.

AD: Because all it takes is one wrong move.

TRUMP: I would bomb the [bleep] Out of them.

Ad: Just one. [sound of fighter jet]

. . .

JOE SCARBOROUGH: What do you think of the ads?

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: I think the latest Clinton ad is really strong. It tweaks on every level. All of his weakness. And it’s scary. That little [makes whooshing sound] of the fighter jet sound at the end?

JOE: Yeah, when he says we’re going to bomb the hell out of them.

MIKA: Something you want to think about before you vote.
