McAuliffe Math: When The Narrative Gets Inflated [VIDEO]

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (D-Clinton) lost no time before releasing an official statement and running for the cameras after the shooting of Congressional Republicans at their softball practice in Alexandria.

Of course, when you want to shape the news to fit your agenda, there are bound to be some casualties. Like math skills.

“This is not what today is about but there are too many guns on the street,” the governor said Wednesday morning. “We lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence.”

“It’s not just about politicians, we worry about all of our citizens,” he said.

“Why are you bringing it up? People are going to criticize that you are bringing up gun control at this time?” a reporter asked.

“I’m talking about it today. This is a very serious issue,” he replied.

It took reporters to point out the math problem before McAuliffe corrected himself.

McAuliffe repeated the 93 million number once more before he was corrected by reporters.

“With 93 million people a day it’s just something,” McAuliffe said before reporters jumped in.

“93 individuals a day,” McAuliffe corrected himself.

Kind of a big difference there, don’t you think?

But McAuliffe wasn’t going to let his math problems distract him from the big picture – which, of course, are the “too many guns” out there argument. Except…

Yes, the “good guy with a gun” stopped the bad guy. You know who said so? Senator Chuck Schumer.

Thankfully, the bad guy is dead, and the news is breaking that his affiliations won’t exactly bear out McAuliffe’s narrative. I suggest he steps away from the cameras before he hurts himself on more math.
