People Are Up in Arms About Trump’s Super Bowl 2020 Ad With Alice Marie Johnson

Donald Trump did a Super Bowl LIV commercial featuring  Alice Marie Johnson, the woman who Kim Kardashian helped free from prison after serving 21 years for a nonviolent drug offense.

But apparently, it’s drawing a lot of criticism.

The commercial ran during Sunday’s game as an advertisement for Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign.

It included an old clip of Alice speaking to reporters after being released and crediting the president for her freedom.

“Alice Johnson was sentenced to serve life in prison for a nonviolent drug offense,” the commercial read. “Thanks to President Trump people like Alice are getting a second chance. Politicians talk about criminal justice reform. President Trump got it done. Thousands of families are being reunited.”

Alice even shared the advertisement on Twitter, writing, “Two Super Bowls ago I was sitting in a prison cell. Today I am a free woman and my story was featured in a Super Bowl Ad. I will spend the rest of my life fighting for the wrongly and unjustly convicted! God Bless America!”

Not long after the commercial aired, people started criticizing Trump for for taking credit for Kim’s efforts to get Alice out of prison.

Clearly, Trump is doing whatever it takes to speak to voters… but is he taking credit for these types of successes? And will it work in his favor?

No doubt, we’ll find out in November.
