Twitter is having an absolute field day with Trump after he claimed that the Moon is a part of Mars


Donald Trump unveiled what is surely one of his most stunningly ignorant tweets earlier today when he launched an unprompted attack on NASA’s plans to return to the Moon, plans which the president himself has actually praised in the past.

It should go without saying that this man has no scientific background and has absolutely no idea what he is talking about. The space program should be left to the brilliant minds at NASA, not reality television stars who somehow managed to con their way into the White House.

The most bewildering part of the tweet though was Trump’s strange and nonsensical claim that the Moon is “a part” of Mars. The Moon is, of course, an entirely separate celestial body from Mars.

It’s unclear whether Trump doesn’t know this basic scientific fact or if he was trying to articulate some other idea and just worded it incredibly poorly. The sad reality that we are even considering the idea that he really does think the Moon is a part of Mars shows how little faith the world has in this man’s intellect.

The tweet instantly went viral and began trending on Twitter as the jokes poured in one after another. It’s rare that a Trump tweet doesn’t invite a ton of responses, but people really seem to be reveling in this one and some of the jokes are laugh out loud funny. Check out some of the best ones below and reminisce on a time when the man in the Oval Office wasn’t a clueless buffoon.
