MSNBC's Brian Williams and NYT edit board member Mara Gay do the math and conclude that, yes, blue check journalist Mekita Rivas is right, with the $500 million Bloomberg spent on ads he could have given $1 million to every American.— Jeff Gould (@jeffmgould) March 6, 2020

I'm fantasizing about all the things I could have done with my $1.53 from @MikeBloomberg...buy #bitcoin? Seriously though, that $ could have been used to educate @SenSanders fans in math and economics. They need it. Especially since @MekitaRivas doubled down on the $1mil goof. pic.twitter.com/oNq6nQAjOi— Timothy Peterson (@nsquaredcrypto) March 4, 2020

327 million x 1 million = 327 TRILLION. @MikeBloomberg is only worth $52 BILLION.
The ENTIRE US ECONOMY only generated $27 TRILLION in '18.
This explains SO MUCH about @BernieSanders' popularity... #mathishard #math pic.twitter.com/cSzzoRQNVE

327 people could get $1,000,000
3,270 could get $100,000
32,700 could get $10,000
327,000 could get $1,000
3,270,000 could get $1
All of these equal $327,000,000.
