Rahm Emanuel isn’t pleased with NRA attack ad

SHARE Rahm Emanuel isn’t pleased with NRA attack ad

The National Rifle Association is launching a multimillion-dollar attack ad campaign against Michael Bloomberg, and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel isn’t pleased.

USA Today reports the anti-Bloomberg campaign is starting with a $500,000 ad buy for a commercial titled “Insult.”

The ad tries to tie the former New York mayor’s views on other policies to guns.

“Bloomberg tries to ban your snack foods, your soda and most of all, your guns,” the narrator says.

While Bloomberg isn’t running for office, he is planning to spend $50 million of his own money to push for tighter gun laws.

Thursday morning, Emanuel tweeted out his support for Bloomberg and his dismay with the NRA.
