Dude Claims Elon Musk Could Give Every Family $100k AND Pay All Student Loan Debt - and Leftists Believe Him

Here’s how to tell people you don’t know how to do math without saying you don’t know how to do math: take someone you disagree with, falsely blame for other people’s financial problems, then post it to the internet.

And your critics will happily take it from there.

Here’s a good example: a tweet from one leftist irritated at Elon Musk’s new status as Twitter’s largest stakeholder claimed that with the money Musk used to purchase 9.2% of Twitter’s stock, the billionaire entrepreneur could have given every American family $100,000 and paid off everyone’s student loan debt.

He must have learned his math from Common Core.

According to statista.com, there were there were 129.93 million households in the United States in 2021. Let’s round that up to 130 million, to make it easy.

At $100k a pop, that comes out to about $13,000,000,000,000 (that’s $13 trillion.)

It’s also far greater than the $2.89 billion Musk spent buying his way on to Twitter’s Board of Directors. It also doesn’t leave a whole lot left to cover the nation’s $1.75 trillion worth of student loan debt.

After getting called out for his bogus math, Mr. Calculator tried to walk back the tweet as a joke, laughing at the leftists who’d believed him and slamming conservatives for defending a billionaire who’d simply spent his own money (apparently we’re supposed to hate Musk for being rich).

But regardless of whether he’d made a massive mathematical boo-boo in full view of the 97,000 people who’d “liked” it, or simply made a poorly delivered joke that few people got, one thing’s for sure: a whole lot of liberals were quick to buy the ridiculous claim.
 


And those are just a few.

It’s a good thing our country isn’t run by liberals who don’t understand basic numbe-

Oh, wait.
