Bloomberg spent $500 million on ads. The U.S. population is 327 million. He could have given each American $1 million check and still have money left over. I feel like a $1 million check would be life-changing for most people. Yet he wasted it all on ads and STILL LOST.” —Brian Williams, MSNBC

Brian Williams went to George Washington University, by the way. But he didn’t graduate. Must have thought he needed 1.2 credits, not 120.
