We realize Senator Chris Murphy was trying to terrify … err … inspire people in Florida to vote for Democrats on Tuesday (especially for Gillum), but holy cow, his tweet is so ridiculously bad we’re not entirely sure where to even start.
Take a gander at this train wreck:
Connecticut has 300% less gun deaths than Florida. Why? Because Republicans let the NRA write their gun laws. Democrats worked with gun safety groups to write ours.
Vote like your life depends on it Tuesday.
It actually might. https://t.co/HvJUr0OVsX

Wait, what now? 300% less?
And keep in mind Chris is a senator … WOW.
Senator, care to explain how you can have “300% less” of something? https://t.co/aDajAX4WAt

When a high-schooler is better at fundamental math than a senator that tells you EVERYTHING you need to know about Democrats. Granted, Kyle is a fairly exceptional high-schooler but still …
In Connecticut, guns literally bring people to life.

Kyle, Chrisy @ChrisMurphyCT lies a lot and his followers are too ignorant to understand. It is almost like our state's education system doesn't teach critical thinking or something.

Fair. But certainly they teach math, right?
Wait, never mind.
He wasn't elected for his brains. Just for his Party.

Democrats aren’t exactly known for being great thinkers. Pretty faces? Sure. Skateboarding, air-guitar-playing, guys who try and flee the scene of a DUI? Sure. Big brains? Not exactly.
Otherwise, they’d be Republicans.
60% of the time it works every time.

The left seems to have trouble with basic math.

It's the new math.

Don’t give them any ideas.
You also have 17% of the population of Florida so Per capita you have more gun deaths.

Full transparency, it’s too early for this editor to check this gent’s math but since Chris’ original math was seriously that dumb let’s just assume Aaron is right.
Not only that, but it should be "FEWER gun deaths," not "less gun deaths." The guy has both his facts and his English wrong.

Democrats sure can pick ’em.
