NY Times Journo Humiliated Over Bad Bloomberg Math Cries Racism

Time to play the victim card.

Published

on

The New York Times journalist who was humiliated for erroneously claiming Mike Bloomberg’s $500 million ad buy could have been used to give every American $1 million dollars has re-emerged to complain that her embarrassment was the fault of a “racist Twitter mob.”

Mara Gay responded to Bloomberg dropping out of the presidential race last week by claiming that the money he spent on campaign commercials could have made every American a millionaire with lots of spare change.

“Actually with the money he spent he could have given every American a million dollars,” Gay told MSNBC’s Brian Williams, who immediately agreed.

With math obviously not being Gay’s 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.

After being left red-faced, Gay re-emerged today with a New York Times opinion piece whining about racism.

“A racist Twitter mob came for me over a trivial math mistake. I’m not going anywhere,” she tweeted.

In the article, Gay complains about receiving a “deluge of hate.”

“Unfortunately, quite a few Americans can tell you what it’s like to be the target of a Twitter mob over a gaffe,” she writes. “My great sin was trivial, harmless, silly. What’s it like when people are trying to cancel you for a math mistake? Weird, and maddening and painful.”

“But she’s not unique for getting tweets making fun of her,” responds Barrett Wilson. “Every public figure gets that. People who put themselves out there, on tv, in writing, on radio, on twitter, get hate from trolls who want attention and don’t have enough nerve, drive, or talent to express themselves in a constructive way.

Indeed, everyone who finds themselves in the crosshairs of a media spectacle, whether they be black, white, conservative or liberal, can expect to receive a deluge of hateful messages on social media.

The only difference is that people on the left always react to being embarrassed by crying “bullying and harassment,” and the media promptly rushes to their defense. Conservatives don’t enjoy that privilege.

Mara; No matter how many mean messages from racists you receive on Twitter, your math is still terrible.

“If you’re going to go on TV and talk to millions of people about economics, learn to do some super basic math in your head. And if you screw up, and people notice, it’s because it’s obvious, not because they’re racist,” writes Wilson.

Respondents on Twitter weren’t buying Gay’s excuses.

Poll: Only 54% of Americans Think Biden is Capable of Debating Trump

With questions continuing to swirl about his mental health, a new Rasmussen poll has found that only 54 per cent of Americans believe Joe Biden is capable of debating President Trump.

The national telephone survey found that just over half of likely voters thought Biden could take part in a debate with Trump while 36 per cent disagree and say he is not capable. A further 11 per cent are not sure either way.

Meanwhile, the poll found that almost a third (29 per cent) of voters thought it would have no impact on Biden’s campaign if he refused to debate Trump while 56 per cent thought it would hurt his candidacy.

Biden’s cognitive functioning has repeatedly been called into question, including last week by White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson.

“I think that he’s old enough now that he’s having cognitive difficulties and that just happens. It’s part of growing old,” said Jackson. “If [Trump] goes head-to-head with Joe Biden cognitively, there just wouldn’t be much of an assessment. It will be very one-sided.”

Last month, Biden asserted that he is “constantly tested” for cognitive decline.

“Look, all you got to do is watch me and I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against,” Biden declared.

Polls show that 38 per cent of American voters think Biden has “some form of dementia,” including one in five Democrats. 61 per cent of voters also think Biden should address the dementia issue publicly.

Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters declared Sunday that President Trump and his supporters are universally racist and believe that it is their duty to impede the progress of black people.

Appearing on MSNBC’s AM Joy, Waters pointed to the commuting of Roger Stone’s sentence by Trump, and declared that there is a “need for Trump and those who support him to want to, you know, have absolute power.”

Waters said that Trump and his base “believe that it is their right and their responsibility to ensure that blacks and people of color and others do not rise to any level of influence and power, significant that would cause them not to be in total charge of the country.”

Waters proclaimed that “This justice system is broken,” adding that “it has never really been in our favor, and it has basically been responsible for ensuring that we could never ever get beyond this suppression and this oppression that has been forced upon us for so many years.”

“So those who criticize Black Lives Matter, they can continue to do that, but I want to tell you the time has come now where we are joined by so many others who really were not there for us in the past.” Waters continued.

She argued that racism is endemic in the US, and that it is to blame for most social problems in America.

“You saw it in all of the protests where you had whites and blacks and Asians and old and young, all saying something is wrong with this country. Something is wrong with our criminal justice system. Something is wrong with our policing,” Waters asserted.

“It is racism,” she concluded.

Video: Joe Biden Struggles to Say “America First”

More forgetfulness from Uncle Joe?

Published

A video clip shows Joe Biden struggling to say “America First,” leading to speculation as to whether he is hostile to the phrase or just forgot the words.

Speaking about Trump, Biden stated, “This guy’s whole idea of America,” before pausing. “America on its own has meant America alone, we’re out there by ourselves.”

While some claimed Biden couldn’t bring himself to use the phrase, it’s more likely that he just had another senior moment.

Back in April, Biden managed to remember the phrase “America First,” but then went on to embarrass himself by suggesting such a policy approach would prohibit “economic intercourse around the world.”

Biden’s cognitive functioning has repeatedly been called into question, including last week by White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson.

“I think that he’s old enough now that he’s having cognitive difficulties and that just happens. It’s part of growing old,” said Jackson. “If [Trump] goes head-to-head with Joe Biden cognitively, there just wouldn’t be much of an assessment. It will be very one-sided.”

Last month, Biden asserted that he is “constantly tested” for cognitive decline.

“Look, all you got to do is watch me and I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against,” Biden declared.
