It’s been days since Election Day and we’re still waiting on the results from a number of places, meanwhile, Florida had everything counted in a few hours. But according to NewsNation’s Chris “Fredo” Cuomo Thursday night, Florida should not be the standard because of the hanging chad situation 22 years ago. He also suggested things would be better with an all-digital system like our hackable banking and fiat monetary systems.

Cuomo’s asinine comments came during the handoff from On Balance With Leland Vittert to his eponymous show. “Chris. It is still confounding to me. That after all that we've been through. In our parent’s era, you knew who won at the end of the night and we've gone backwards,” a frustrated Vittert lamented, to which Cuomo tried to argue there were fewer people voting back then.

Vittert immediately pointed out that Florida had counted millions of ballots in just a few hours. Cuomo counted by clownishly trying to credit to the GOP’s victory margin for the count rate.
