That’s the #FakestOfFakeNews.
It’s one of the biggest races of the night: Florida’s governor’s race. Will Florida choose a failed socialist mayor or tried-and-true conservative?
Whether we like it or not, the results of this race will have a massive impact on Trump’s 2020 run. Florida is the swingy-est of swing states. The governor will either be able to HELP Trump (DeSantis) or HURT Trump (Gillum). Although there’s a possibility that Gillum could be SO BAD that people desperately do the opposite of what he says. It’s possible, but there’s no point in indulging in those hypotheticals. We don’t even have the results yet. Well, we don’t, but MSNBC does.
This is completely false and wrong report.
MSNBC accidentally shows false results of Tomorrow’s election that has not happened in Florida showing socialist Gillum in slight lead against @RonDeSantisFL. Wishful thinking? What do you think https://t.co/IHaTFIAYEq

Chris Hayes quickly tried to clarify.
“Quick clarification here,” he said. “Just want to say, earlier this hour, uh, we showed a graphic of the Florida gubernatorial race. May have caught your eye because our system had inadvertently populated some test numbers. Obviously, we do not yet have any vote totals here, the night before the election. That was a misfire. Don’t worry. I was pretty confused when I saw it up there, to see it myself.”
Mhm. Sure. Great. Way to go, MSNBC. Definitely no wishful thinking here.
