Joe Scarborough hates your mom’s PowerPoint

by pdxblake

Joe Scarborough’s attack on facts is going from the head scratching to face-palming awfully quickly. In response to a chart that contradicted one of his statements, Scarborough tweeted:

“Childish insults and skewed graphs liberals make up on their mom’s PowerPoint does not change reality. Facts-and math-are stubborn things.”

And this makes Jonathan Chait concerned:

“Nothing he [Scarborough] writes here makes sense on any literal level. To understand the sentiment Scarborough is trying to communicate, you have to understand it on a different plane. His insults — childish, mom, PowerPoint —  are Scarborough’s attempt to show, through contrast, that he, Joe Scarborough, is kind of a big deal.”
