    MSNBC’s Joy Reid Doesn’t Know What “538” Represents

    Thinks 538 website named after Al Gore’s vote lead in 2000 Florida recount. “If Joy Reid were your architect, the bedroom ceiling would fall on your head the first time the wind blew.”

    There is fierce competition for the position of dumbest talking head over at MSNBC. Lawrence O’Donnell, Chris Hayes, Mika Brzezinski, and Nicolle Wallace put up a great fight for the prize on a regular basis, but Joy Reid consistently outshines all of them in this coveted category.

    A recent tweet from Reid about the meaning behind “538” in the name of the polling outfit “FiveThirtyEight” should be framed and hung on a refrigerator somewhere.


    People quickly reacted:

    Joy’s follow-up wasn’t much better:

    Kyle Smith writes at the New York Post:

    MSNBC’s Joy Reid is the wrongest person on television

    If Joy Reid were your architect, the bedroom ceiling would fall on your head the first time the wind blew. If Joy Reid were your plumber, the contents of your toilet would come spewing out your shower head. If Joy Reid were a pilot, a firefighter, or a police officer, we would no longer be discussing her, except in the past tense.

    But! Joy Reid is a television pundit, albeit one who toils for the hysterical conspiracy-theory factory known as MSNBC, and hence can never suffer any penalty for being factually inept: Hey, it’s only somebody talking. Did you make the mistake of assuming MSNBC was about accuracy?

    Regarding the content of Reid’s tweet, Smith adds:

    Bzzt. Wrong. Gong sound. Let the mighty all-negating Foot of Monty Python come down from the heavens and squash this tweet onto oblivion. We award Joy Reid no points, and may God have mercy on her soul. The Supreme Court didn’t reverse the 2000 election and is, famously, named not after George W. Bush’s margin of victory in Florida in 2000 (which was 537) but after the number of votes in the Electoral College.

    Not to worry, Joy. Just say your Twitter account was hacked.
