I am in complete and total shock this made it to air.

500 million / 327 million is $1.52.

They are claiming it is $1 million dollars for every american and Bloomberg would have change left over.

We are talking about the difference between 20 years of salary for the avg. american vs a hamburger on the value menu.

Do you understand how many people had to be stupid for this to make it on air? First the original tweeter a Washington Post writer had to make the tweet, then she had to ignore the dozens of comments that told her, her math was wrong and not delete it. Then it had to spread around leftist twitteratti and nobody of prominence significantly denounce the stupidity of the tweet.

Then the presenter had to see the tweet, bring it to a producer, who brought it to somebody to make the graphic, then the two fools on the air had to repeat this and still not know how to do second grade math.

What is their excuse - do they not know the population of the United states? Even if they don't in New York I am pretty sure you commonly see more than 500 people on the street at the same time.

It's no wonder people support Bernie Sanders if something like this can make it to air. It also explains how MSNBC was able to continue to spout Russian collusion BS for years.

Every single person associated with the segment should be fired immediately if MSNBC wants to maintain any credibility at all.

Math is hard.


Hilarious.
MSNBC should be so embarrassed.
...and these people are supposed to be the elite?

It's astoundingly stupid but do we really need two threads about it?

Yes, yes I do. LOL

'Twas a looooong night at work, and it's way past my bedtime.

Now I'm wondering if that Miketa Rivas was as sleep deprived as I am at the moment. LOL

Good night all. The pillow is screaming my name.

Well, the correct amount is $327trillion to give everyone $1million.

The upside is this is completely doable with Bernie Sanders policies.

And with his proposed taxes, we'll all have next to nothing in the end.

Perfectly written to make "people" and "voters" automatically believe anything they say is true 😃

Total amount of money in the world - 90.4 Trillion - ALL OF IT.

But yeah, AOC has previously said who cares what things cost, we can just print more money.

That is how stupid these leftists are.

Absolutely.

After a nice nap I can say that when the MSM like MSNBC, FOX, or CNN start making sense... it's time to get yourself some sleep.

It's just hilarious that apparently nobody in the studio can do basic math. I understand that the talking heads and guests probably aren't too bright but I can't believe there wasn't a producer in his ear telling him that the math was wrong. More than that, the graphic was ready to go meaning they had likely talked about it before the guest came on and NOBODY THERE was like "umm..that doesn't sound right to me..".

I won't make it political. I just find it funny.

It means TWO things:
1) No fact-checking @ MSNBC
2) The network is staffed with moronic parrots

From the libtards hat called us:
"deplorables"

"fly-over country"

Etc.

Who is it again that is unintelligent ..?.......libtards can't even do BASIC math , so narcissist that layers of them cannot see such fundamental simple errors....must be the fault of "Russians".....
