No, you do realize what median means don't you?

Well I guess you don't.

You should go look it up.

Median is the difference between the highest number and the lowest in a set of data. Mean is the average calculated by adding up all of the numbers and then dividing by the number of numbers. The two tell quite different stories about the data.

And the median or the mean income not adjusted for inflation is meaningless, just like most of Trump's rants.
