So did Louie Gohmert really ask the Forest Service to change the moon's orbit?

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2021/06/09/louie-gohmert-climate-change-forest-service-alter-earths-orbit/7625618002/



And people will still vote for that man in his district?

1. To be fair

He said to change the moon's orbit, OR the Earth's.

3. Someone should tell him that Trump hung the moon, so he is the only one who can change its orbit.

4. He wanted her to say no.

He was baiting her in his own screwed up way. His uneducated reply would be that he agrees and that the forest service can’t do anything to combat climate change by changing natural orbital cycles or any other natural cycle. Her answer undercut this and made him look like an idiot (not that any help is needed).

14. This is correct.

Gomert is a variety of denier who hangs his hat on the “it’s all natural and we can’t do anything about it” argument.

That argument is completely full of shit, but the MSM misses that point and focuses on the “Louie Gomert thinks the USFS can change earth’s orbit” angle.

Which is not true. It was misguided sarcasm and a way to lie about the issue. But it gives the denier industry the ability to complain that the MSM is reporting inaccurately. Which they are busy doing right now.

9. I'm a sci-fi fan, but that show was too crazy and stupid to watch.

I found it impossible to suspend my disbelief and just ogle Barbara Bain.

Let that sink in.

8. Which leads me to believe that his stupidity is deliberate.

He knows he's being an ass.

12. I tend to agree.

The changing the moon or earth's orbit was one thing but asking if the Forest Service could do it was too bizarre for even he to be serious about it. He was fishing for a response and didn't get what he wanted.

15. He got his law degree at Baylor

A decent university that most likely didn't accept idiots.

13. This is about misdirection (pun intended)

His argument will be that climate change is an orbital problem not a greenhouse gas problem. So then he starts talking about something as preposterous as changing earth's orbit instead of talking about decreasing our dependance on fossil fuels.

In 2022 and 2024 all the dumb kids will be talking like a bad science fiction novel.
