Moon is part of Mars

RE: Moon is part of Mars
I think the Great Carrot was trying to communicate that going back to the moon was part of the plan to go to Mars, i.e a staging area.
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

I wouldn't put it past Trump to say something like this and mean it literally. But, I think you're right. On Twitter even Phil Plait said that he understood it the same way you did.

I think this may have been the perfect day of the Trump presidency to break this old meme out:

It's hardly optimism. I don't harbor the slightest hope that He of Beta Carotene is anything other than a danger, enemy and utter embarrassment to the human race - along with the FUCKING IDIOTS that voted for him.

It's never good to underestimate your enemy, though. I think his grasp of reality is not so fucked up that he actually thinks the moon is somehow a part of Mars. His supporters are another matter. I wouldn't be too shocked if they believed it so long as their orange king said it.

He could be talking about a landing on Venus (with a surface temp of 872 Fahrenheit and clouds made of fucking sulfuric acid) or even on Jupiter (which doesn’t even have a surface to land on.)

Every one knows Venus is part of the sun.   You can't land on the sun, you'll get sun burn.

Not a problem if you land at night!

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups

I do not underestimate my enemy.  My enemy is no less than a total ignoramus moron with not a slightest hint of where reality resides.

I did overestimate American people and the American system.   American people and the American system prove to be no match for any total ignoramus moron with not a slightest hint of where reality resides.

I swear that was a joke Ali G made when he was interviewing an astronaut, Buzz Aldrin, I think it was.

That joke is older than Ali G., methinks. I heard it in the '60s.
I never thought I'd live long enough to become a grumpy old bastard. Here I am, killing it!
