This is what happens when you teach nothing but racism in school, and leave out anything actually, you know, educational.

During an event in Houston just before the eclipse Monday morning, Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) told the audience gathered at the Mickey Leland Federal Building that the moon was made up “mostly of gasses” (it isn’t) and that it's "almost impossible to go near the sun" (we actually can't go near it at all) because it's a "mighty powerful heat" (you don't say!?). 

“You need light and energy from the sun so that you have the energy of the moon at night and sometimes you’ve heard the word ‘full moon,’ that’s when you take the opportunity to come out and see that the full moon is that complete rounded circle, which is made up mostly of gasses,” Jackson Lee rambled, having seemingly forgotten her prepared remarks - and rudimentary science, along with them.

Oh, but it got better - or, depending on how you look at it, far worse.

“That’s why the question is why and how quickly as humans we could live on the moon. Are the gasses such that we could do that?” she went on.

Uh….oh boy.

Believe it or not, the insanity didn’t end there. Jackson Lee then explained that the reason man can’t journey to the sun is because it’s “a mighty powerful heat.”

“The sun is a mighty powerful heat, but it’s almost impossible to go near the sun. The moon is more manageable,” she went on.

An actual, honest-to-God elected official, ladies and gentlemen. May God have mercy on us all.
