“Blah Blah Math Blah Blah”: Wash Post Journalist Responds to Humiliating ‘$1 Million For Every American’ Fail

Doubles down and gets her math wrong once again.

Published

on

The Washington Post journalist who was humiliated after claiming Mike Bloomberg’s $500 million ad spend could have been used to give every American $1 million dollars responded to the controversy by tweeting “blah blah math blah blah.”

OK, then.

As we highlighted earlier, Mekita Rivas responded to Bloomberg dropping out of the presidential race by claiming that the money he spent on campaign commercials could have made every American a millionaire with lots of spare change.

With math obviously not being Rivas’ strong point, it was immediately pointed out that Bloomberg’s $500 billion doled out to all 327 million Americans would mean they get just $1.53 each.

That didn’t stop MSNBC’s Brian Williams and New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay repeating the claim as if it was accurate.

“Actually with the money he spent he could have given every American a million dollars,” said Gay incorrectly.

“It’s an incredible way of putting it,” responded Williams.

Instead of holding her hands up and taking the L, Rivas absurdly doubled down.

Tweeting from behind a locked account, Rivas reacted to the farce by asserting, “blah blah math blah blah people are telling me my numbers are wrong but the point still stands: he could easily afford to give everyone $1 million and literally never notice.”

She was swiftly corrected once again.

“Oh my gosh. @MekitaRivas doubled down! Wrong again,” tweeted Terry Schilling. “One would need $327 trillion to give each American $1m. Bloomberg is worth $65b, which equals around $200 per American. This is why socialism is gaining traction because government schools suck at teaching basic math.”

Perhaps Rivas should de-activate her account and shut up for a while.

However, with the current state of journalism, she’s more likely to get a promotion from the Washington Post.

Obama Jokes “Navy SEALs” Could Be Sent Into White House to Drag Trump Out

Biden campaign previously threatened to ‘escort trespassers from the White House.’

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, former president Barack Obama joked that the Navy SEALs could be used to drag Donald Trump out of the White House.

Kimmel asked Obama if there was anywhere Trump could hide in the White House.

“You know the White House well. You lived there for eight years. Are there places someone could hide? Like, if, say, they were going to be removed? Are there little cubby holes or anything that you know about?” Kimmel joked.

“Well, I think we can always send the Navy SEALs in to dig him out,” responded Obama.

Although Obama was obviously joking, the Biden campaign was deadly serious when it leveled a similar threat against Trump just two days after the election.

“The United States government is capable of escorting trespassers from the White House,” said a statement from the Biden campaign.

As we previously reported, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley met with TV network anchors on the weekend before the election to inform them that the U.S. Military would not intervene in the aftermath.

Milley sought to “dispel any notion of a role for the military in adjudicating a disputed election or making any decision around removing a president from the White House.”

The Trump campaign is still involved in litigation efforts to overturn the election result, claiming millions of votes were switched from Trump to Biden.

Leftists Suggest “Re-education Camps,” “Firing Squads,” Banning Talk Radio to “Deprogram” 75 Million Trump Supporters

But Trump supporters are the baddies.

Leftists responded to a Twitter thread asking “how do you deprogram 75 million people?” by suggesting Trump supporters should be interned in “re-education camps” and that all conservative talk radio should be banned.

“No seriously…how *do* you deprogram 75 million people? Where do you start? Fox? Facebook?” asked David Atkins (pronouns in bio), a regional director for California Democrats. “We have to start thinking in terms of post-WWII Germany or Japan. Or the failures of Reconstruction in the South,” he added.

Atkins went on to frame Trump voters as a “conspiracy theory fueled belligerent death cult against reality & basic decency” before issuing a veiled threat by stating, “People are gonna try to figure out how to defend themselves.”

While asserting the moral high ground, many of the response in the thread demanded outright tyranny or yet more censorship as a means of ensuring “the good guys” have their way.

One verified user called for “Nuremberg trials.”

“I would look at Germany and see what they did about Nazis. Because you’re dealing with the same mentality,” said another.

“Reeducation camps for those salvageable,” said another. Firing squad for irredeemable malcontents. Round up entire families to ensure the disease doesn’t spread.”

“Generally speaking, I believe re-education camps are a good thing,” added another.

Another called for the removal of “radio talk show hosts from airwaves through rigorous application of hate speech laws.”

“Cut them off completely. End the flow of false information suddenly and immediately,” said another, calling for all right-wing news outlets to “die.”

Another respondent called for “banning Trump flags.”

Hans, are we the baddies?

Republicans in Wayne County Caved In, Certified Results After Being Called “Racist” by Pro-Antifa Poll Watcher

Ned Staebler liked tweets that advocated killing people on lists.

Republicans in Wayne County, Michigan reversed their decision to not certify the presidential election results after they were lectured by a pro-Antifa poll watcher and called racist.

Monica Palmer and William Hartmann, who make up two of the four-person Wayne County Board of Canvassers, sparked controversy when they initially refused to sign off on their district’s ballot count which handed Joe Biden victory.

This prompted poll watcher and local businessman Ned Staebler to accuse the pair of basically being on a par with Nazis.

“I just want to let you know that the Trump stink, the stain of racism that you have covered yourself in, is going to follow you throughout history,” said Staebler in a Zoom call.

“You will forever be known in southeastern Michigan as two racists who did something so unprecedented that they disenfranchised hundreds of thousands of black voters in the city of Detroit, because they were ordered to,” he added, before going on to label Palmer and Hartmann “completely racist.”

Staebler suggested the pair were also going to hell, declaring, “When you go to meet your maker, your soul is going to be very, very warm.”

The rant appeared to have an impact because Palmer and Hartmann reversed their decision shortly after and certified the results.

Staebler’s rhetoric sounding like typical Antifa diatribe is no surprise given that he openly supports the violent organization, as well as Black Lives Matter, on his Twitter page.

As the screenshot below highlights, Staebler has liked tweets which advocate drawing up lists of people and killing them as well as celebrating “nazis getting their lights punched out,” which at this point is a synonym for Trump supporters being attacked.

So in other words, Palmer and Hartmann were so weak in their convictions, they were rattled by one angry rant by an Antifa supporter on a Zoom call.
