Skip to comments.Insane Claims on MSNBC: 45% Americans in Poverty, 1-in-4 Dies Yearly!

Guest host Tiffany Cross claimed that, while awaiting the conclusion of negotiations on the new stimulus package, Americans are "starving." Other than people who have fallen off the grid due to addiction or mental illness, perhaps Cross could tell us how many Americans have starved during these negotiations.
Even more egregiously, the Rev. William Barber, a poverty advocate and regular MSNBC guest, offered up some statistics that can only be called insane.
Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

45% of the US in poverty, and 1/4 of the population dies every year.
Why would anyone believe ANYTHING these people say?
Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.
Well, 50% is below the median income.
77,500,000 people die every year?
Yeah, and polls show 362 million Biden supporters.
Or ask any Westpac sailor about shit river.
Dying yearly must be a harrowing experience. i guess one would get used to it.
Well, if you add up Biden’s 150,000,000 dead from ‘gun violence’ since the assault weapons ban expired and his 200,000,000 will be dead by the end of my speech, MSNBC’s numbers are a little light.
Like the old joke: A woman gives birth in the US every 9 minutes. We’ve got to find that woman and stop her!
I know that MSNBC is playing the equal opportunity game, but for God’s sake can’t they book some intelligent Blacks?
I’ve been making jokes that, due to voter fraud, Biden may get 400 million votes this year.
If that happened, the MSM would just report it and move on like there was nothing odd about it at all.
It’s been in all the papers....haven’t you been keeping up?
Poor people in America are infinitely more likely to die of morbid obesity.
Some time ago i did research into how agencies come up with such figures and the crafty way some agencies raise funds to "help the hungry" in the US use such findings and I found them quite contrived. How many Americans do NOT experience hunger, or how many well-fed souls would say they sometimes "do not have enough food of sufficient quality and quantity"...," or had to put things back on the rack because they did not have enough money (that can mean with them) to buy them all, or did not know where their next meal was coming from (that could even mean McDonalds, Papa Ginos, etc)? There is the relative poor, as we were growing up, but the figures are exaggerated for funding purposes.
At length examination here, by God's grace. Food hunger in America: More Hype than Reality. Why?
Geeze! Haven’t heard that in decades! while on deployment to to the PI I lived in the aircrew BEQ just 370 steps at a dead run from the shit river bridge. Olongapo City!
I reserve the right to not say more.
From the background of his video, the good Rev. Barber seems to have done quite well at lifting himself out of poverty.
Possibly he could share his secrets with those still trapped in poverty so they could get out...
I’ve been in the slums in India. Let’s talk about poverty.
