The San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs weren’t the only ones duking it out at Super Bowl 2020.
President Trump and Michael Bloomberg aired dueling commercials during Sunday night’s game — both spending an estimated $10 million for 60 seconds of air time.
Trump used that load of cash on two 30-second ads, with the first about criminal justice reform.
It featured Alice Marie Johnson, the nonviolent drug offender whose life sentence the president commuted in 2018, thanks to Kim Kardashian’s advocacy.
The emotional spot showed the Tennessee grandmother getting sprung from prison and reuniting with her relatives.
“My heart is just bursting with gratitude,” Johnson tells the camera. “I want to thank President Donald John Trump. Hallelujah!”
The ad’s text then read: “Thanks to President Trump, people like Alice are getting a second chance.”
“Politicians talk about criminal justice reform. President Trump got it done.”
The commander-in-chief’s second commercial was about his record — focusing on the booming economy.
The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, Bloomberg, meanwhile, chose the topic of gun violence for his commercial.
His 60-second ad featured the grieving mother of George Kemp Jr., an aspiring NFL player who was fatally shot in 2013 at 20.
In a pre-game interview aired on Fox News, Trump taunted 5-foot-8 Bloomberg for his height, claiming the former New York mayor wants a box to stand on during a Democratic presidential debate. Bloomberg’s campaign denies that is the case.
