"How did this ever make it to air?
During Thursday night’s live broadcast of MSNBC’s The 11th Hour, anchor Brian Williams and New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay both credulously believed a viral, flatly wrong tweet claiming that Michael Bloomberg could have gifted each American one million dollars with the money he spent on his failed campaign.
Discussing Bloomberg’s plans to form a Super PAC to support the Democratic presidential nominee, Williams said that Gay has “spoken with great knowledge” about Bloomberg in the past and how he could be a “one-man bank.”
After Gay noted that Bloomberg can make a huge difference for former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign, Williams asked her if she sees the possibility that the ex-mayor could spend “a billion bucks beating” President Donald Trump.
“Absolutely,” she responded. “Somebody tweeted recently that actually with the money he’s spent, he could have given every American a million dollars.”"
