Trump hates math, blames poor showing in polls on the number system

"What do you mean, real numbers", Trump asked. "Those numbers are not real. Crooked Clinton made them up. And what about those decibel fractions? If I want loud numbers, I'll have a rally in Ohio."

That was just part of Trump's emerging war on numbers. Andy Borowitz at the New Yorker has more.

YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO (The Borowitz Report)—Donald J. Trump lashed out at a new target on Monday, blaming his bad poll numbers on the existence of the numerical system.

In sometimes rambling remarks at an outdoor rally in Ohio, the Republican Presidential nominee called the numerical system “rigged” and unleashed a torrent of abuse on numbers themselves, calling them “disgusting” and “the lowest form of life.”

“He should be talking about Hillary Clinton, and instead he’s going off on integers,” one insider said.
