(THE BLAZE) Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg's $10 million Super Bowl commercial includes a misleading statistics on violent gun deaths among children, according to Fox News. The network also found that Bloomberg's ad depicted an adult victim of a violent crime as a child.
In the emotionally-charged 60-second Bloomberg spot, Calandrian Simpson Kemp discusses her son's violent death. "On a Friday morning, George was shot. George didn't survive. I just kept saying, 'You cannot tell me that the child that I gave birth to, is no longer here.' Lives are being lost every day. It is a national crisis."
An unattributed statistic then flashes on the screen: "2,900 CHILDREN DIE FROM GUN VIOLENCE EVERY YEAR."
