Math is hard for at least three liberals

Post by richardMdBorn »

Brian Williams and Mara Gay (editorial board of the New York Times) won’t win any math prizes. https://youtu.be/OBWU1n-coYI Gee, if there are millions on both sides of the equation they cancel out and the number per American is slightly more than $1.50. I check my actuarial projections by whether they’re reasonable. If they’re not, I review all the formulas and inputs. The MSM includes a large number of stupid ignorant people.

Excellent point, Methylsulfonylmethane does have a lot of stupid ignorant people. Even more of those people can be found at Focks News.

Not sure how the behind the camera people let that huge and obvious mistake slip through.

Gotta admit, that's a rather large math error. Somebody off-camera should have caught that and corrected it immediately.

LOL. :lol: That was pretty bad. They both publicly admitted the mistake after it was pointed out to them, apologized for the mistake, and we can all move on. Now, if this was a Trump spokesperson on Fox News they would refuse to admit their mistake, claim their math was perfect, and accuse those who say their math was wrong of spreading fake news.

I think this is an important point. They were both embarrassed and apologetic for their mistake, which Trump spokespersons would have strongly resisted admitting to.

Trump would have taken a sharpie marker and added extra zeros to the amount Bloomberg spent. Being Trump, he would have gotten the amount wrong. No problem, he would have lied about it afterward and ordered a coverup.

I love how one mistake by a couple of newscasters is huge news for the right. If they were that affected by newscaster mistakes, you'd think they'd be having a seizure every night by what happens on Fox News.

Trump says idiotic ____ literally every ____ day. Where are all the "Subject X is Hard for Trump" threads by these concerned right wingers?

It's strange how willing they are to throw stones through their own glass houses.

I guess that I shouldn’t number you among my fans. Let me know when a four star general introduces your talk at Air Force Space Command, or when you speak at the Explorers Club in New York City, or when C-SPAN airs 100 minutes of a talk you gave with your co-author.

if anyone wants to watch the three videos which are available online of these talks, let me know. I’ve also appeared on SpyCast and The John Batchelor Show.

How would those accomplishments stack up against a rampaging Trump armed with a sharpie marker and an intent to add extra zeros to any faulty math calculation? Hopefully, richardMdBorn would have a sedative dart gun in his medical bag that could immobilize Trump long enough for his handlers to wrangle him back inside his enclosure.

So, some MSM personalities ____ up their math, which, I admit is bananas that no one caught them before they aired the bit, nor did they see the simple error right in front of their faces. I'm totally willing to concede it was egregious. I have no idea if they issued a correction and a mea culpa, but they should've done so. In fact, they should've added an apology explaining in their rush to mock Bloomberg they displayed stunning hubris and ignorance. IMO, it damages Brian Williams' credibility to an unfixable point unless he acknowledges it and promises to do better. Same goes for what's-her-nuts.

That said, RichardMDBorn decides to add this bit: "The MSM includes a large number of stupid ignorant people."

Understanding he's a Conservative that statement implies quite a bit, but can be taken as a swipe at Liberals being dumb or something. So, to balance things out, and because his is just a swipe at 'you people' I added the bit out Republican pedophiles because, you know, what's good for the goose and all that.

Unfortunately, he gets bent out of shape when I take just one, of an endless amount of daily examples, where Trump is shown to be abjectly stupid and we get RichardMDBorn posting a bit about his credibility. I have no idea why he felt the need to do that, of course. Does his admittedly cool resume of briefing some General and speaking on C-SPAN merit a kudos? Sure! I think that's neat. And now, to answer his request of, "Let me know when you do something of note."

I WAS AN EAGLE SCOUT.

There. Now we're equals. Can RichardMDBorn now admit President Trump is wholly unqualified for the office in which occupies?

Richard himself is quite ignorant. I'm not sure about "stupid," but he is so thoroughly broken by personal biases that he routinely believes in extremely stupid things. Extreme right AM radio stuff. It's legitimately sad. So, he's in no position to condescend anyone in that way even before you start considering the fact that his preferred media sources flub basic stuff so routinely that it is essential to their identity.

Then, Richard decides to throw out his accomplishments as a means of shouting down criticism of his hypocrisy. Because those accomplishments aren't exactly the most impressive thing ever - there are far more accomplished people who also say quite dumb things - it comes across as pathetic. How dare you challenge someone who, uh, once gave a talk aired on C-Span? Pretty easily, as it turns out. Heck, some of the very people he started this thread to poke fun of are far more accomplished than him. Then, on top of all that, when you realize he's coat tailing the family he was fortunate to be born into, it comes across as *really* pathetic.

Yeah, Richard, we know.
