MSNBC really hires the best and brightest, don’t they?
During a recent segment, host Katy Tur wondered aloud if gerrymandering could help break the Republican hold on the Senate.
Not unless they’ve started changing state borders to create new states, Katy.

Katy Tur Fears ‘Gerrymandering’ Helping Republicans Win Senate Seats
Still lamenting the Republican majority in the Senate acquitting President Trump in the impeachment trial, on Friday, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur touted how more people voted for the senators who supported conviction and bizarrely feared that “gerrymandering” was somehow helping the GOP win so many Senate seats.
“In case you missed it, majority doesn’t always rule in this country,” Tur whined in the 2:00 p.m. ET hour. Relying on a Washington Post article, she then explained her declaration: “Forty-eight senators voted to remove the President from office. Fifty-two voted to acquit. But the 48 actually represent 12 million more voters than the senators who decided to keep Donald Trump in the White House.”…
Minutes later, Tur wondered what could be done to prevent Republicans from winning statewide elections for U.S. Senate seats across the country: “So what’s the resolution to that? Is gerrymandering something that would help improve the situation? Is – how does that sort of divide promote consensus in the Senate or even in the House?”

I've had enough of Republicans moving state borders around all willy-nilly. https://t.co/iq5VUcPFFP
