Donald Trump said ‘the moon is part of Mars’ and the responses were out of this world
Breaking news from Donald Trump’s head – he’s no longer interested in going to the moon despite him saying just a little while back that he was really, really interested in going to the moon.
But his entirely predictable U-turn isn’t the most interesting part of what he had to say. This is.
For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon – We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense and Science!

Fuck me. I know absolutely nothing about astronomy but I could never make a statement this stupid. https://t.co/Tyz4hCnF8L

I’ve double checked. The moon is not, in fact, a part of Mars. https://t.co/i9HcCej6fP

I look forward to the news reporting on this: "Trump says that the Moon is a part of Mars. Some scientists disagree." https://t.co/I5iEHnZN5k

As JFK famously said, “We choose to go to the Moon not because it is easy, but because it is Mars"

Everyone knows the moon is NOT mars. Largely this is because the moon is made of cheese and mars is made of chocolate.

Trump saying we went to the moon 50 years ago immediately makes me think this is proof we never did. https://t.co/5RKrAukyfp

Goodnight Mars (of which the moon is apart).

When I was letters editor on a newspaper we used to get loads of stuff like this, but it was usually written in jam. https://t.co/tlFa9VaaTR

Trump announces that we’re going to the moon, so NASA puts it in motion. Three weeks later Fox News covers it, Trump sees it, doesn’t remember it originally came from him, decides it’s stupid, and attacks NASA for it. Then he says the Moon is a part of Mars. Ta da!
