Republican math at work.
 
2022-07-04 3:26:48 PM  
Does this explain how they always think tax cuts will generate revenue?

She knows the base really is that stupid.

Buy a few more items and inflation could hit 150%.  Thanks Biden.

That's literally not how percentages work. My brain hurts.
 
2022-07-04 5:11:41 PM  
As a CPA, this is horrifying
 
2022-07-04 5:14:50 PM  
Wow. I'm not even a math geek. That is spectacularly stupid.

This. Haley knows this isn't how math works. But she knows that this is how her base thinks.

A responsible politician would be trying to educate them. Haley is exploiting them.

If only we had a press that would throw this stupidity back at her.

The cost of housing has been going up by double digits for a decade

Well, I'm not eating any of that crap, so I'm ahead of the game.

Found a deal on ground chuck and a whole Boston butt, so I'll be eating good, once the smoker is done.  Already had a nice juicy hand made burger, and that butt will feed us for a couple of days.

I may be broke, but I'm completely stupid.

Are we looking for the mean average or something else all together?

This. Haley knows this isn't how math works. But she knows that this is how her base thinks.

Well, she IS a Republican.

Low level staffer. Never met her. Apparently she used to bring the coffee.

Megyn Kelly, 2008: "Is that the math you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better?"
 
2022-07-04 8:32:21 PM  
She isn't that stupid.

But she knows Republican voters are that stupid.

Looks good to me!

She farked up. I redid the calcs and it is really 66.6% she rounded up.

Dammit Biden, you devil!

Haley's Math vs. Cop Math.   Discuss.

Math. Meth. What's the difference?

It's probably for the best. I actually winced.

I'll have 1 condiments please!
On top of the horrific math that also makes me cringe.
 
2022-07-04 8:39:51 PM  
.....

She could have just used the actual prices of the actual items, in a line-item by line-item comparison...with very little effort.
 
2022-07-04 8:40:38 PM  
Just imagine index fund movements if that was how it worked.

You know, it actually might.

Math you do as a republican

2022-07-04 8:43:12 PM  
My guess is she might actually know that's not the way that kind of math works...but she also knows that their supporters won't question it for a minute, and that 67.2% sounds a heck of a lot worse than 11.2%.

//And I suspect that 11.2% average still isn't quite accurate due to "garbage in, garbage out"
/But I'm just working with the numbers she gave us

Jesus farking Christ

This is not a good faith attempt to run the numbers and generate a conclusion that just happened to be executed poorly.
 
2022-07-04 8:43:53 PM  
She was told there would be no math

This hyper inflation was coordinated to take effect after TFG lost.


All the pieces were put in place for this to happen.  Those who paid attention knew it was coming.


Just the "rescue" err... emergency economic relieferr... "Covid" packages alone were enough to balloon prices out of control.

Take into account currency manipulation and intentional "supply chain" issues in addition to demand outstripping supply from hits to manufacturing from Covid restrictions and such.


All of this Biden inherited and you're an dumbfark if you think the president has unilateral powers that extend deep into the economy.

Also PPP loan fraud (which TFG's admin encouraged) opened the flood gates to fark up the economy

five out of four republicans suck at math. LOL

Yeah, she is an idiot. Always has been, always will be.
 
2022-07-04 8:47:21 PM  
What if it's just that whoever she pays to run her twitter account, doesn't know the difference between a $ and a %?

"And Jimmy, that's why when the Census says there's 5% more Black people and 10% more Mexicans, there's 15% less White people."

Wow Biden has given me a 67% discount at the grocery store. I'm going to vote for him again.

This. Haley knows this isn't how math works. But she knows that this is how her base thinks.

A responsible politician would be trying to educate them. Haley is exploiting them.


And her base will derail any serious discussion of the inflation issue with this nonsense, turning it into a shouting match about how percentages work.

All part of the plan.

We can agree that's certifiable.

Hey, that Jared one might be accurate, once you factor in lawyer's fees.
