The other day we were watching Tucker for some reason, and he really pissed me off with this lie:

Tucker wrote:
"OK, but here's the fact that nobody ever, ever mentions -- Democrats win rich people. Over 100,000 in income, you are likely more than not to vote for Democrats. People never point that out. Rich people vote liberal. I don't know what that's all about."


I started ranting at the TV that he was full of it until my wife told me that he couldn't hear me. Even though I didn't know the numbers, I knew he was making shit up.

Then this knucklehead from Politico, Josephine Hearn, just agrees with him like it's some sort of obvious fact!
