Chris Christie Zaps MSNBC’s Botched Chart: It’s ‘Democratic Math!’
MSNBC doesn’t make sense to Chris Christie, either. The outspoken Republican governor on Wednesday mocked a network graphic insisting that 55 percent of New Jersey residents think he’ll be Vice President and 68 percent don’t. (So, 123 percent?) An amused Christie quipped, “That sounds like Democratic math!” [See video below. MP3 here.]
A sheepish Joe Scarborough admitted, “Now, see, I’m not really good in math, but I don’t” think that makes much sense. Christie joked, “55 To 68?…I can’t count that high. It’s over 100, though, I know that much.” It appears as though the graphic department for Morning Joe is just as math-challenged as Chris Matthews.
