    If you entered me into a contest where the person who said the stupidest thing wins $1 million, and gave me 24 hours to come up with my entry, I would not be able to get close to this:
    https://www.theguardian.com/science/2019/jun/07/trump-moon-is-part-of-mars-tweet-nasa
    Trump attacks Nasa and claims the moon is 'a part' of Mars

    President tweeted Nasa should focus on ‘Mars (of which the Moon is a part)’ over going to the moon, a reversal of previous remarks

    Left wing media distorting the message again. Anyone passively following Space developments should know that the Moon is part of a broader plan to go to Mars.

    Trump passively following Space developments?
    That's a very beautifully said compliment for a president in the entire American history.
    Yes, he's well known for his Space chops.

    It's not distortion; it's that that's what he said in English: the moon is a part of Mars. His tweet:

    "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!"

    What part of that or anything he's said sounds like he deserves the benefit of the doubt? "...Mars, Defense, and Science!" That's right... and Science... because between the Mars mission and innovating for defense, science isn't already covered yet. LMAO

    And let me remind you, this isn't just crap falling out of his mouth while he's talking on stage; he wrote this and published it when he was fully satisfied with it.

    Chinese paper says 'foreign forces' trying to create havoc in Hong Kong
    • BEIJING (Reuters) - “Foreign forces” are trying to hurt China by creating chaos in Hong Kong over an extradition bill that has prompted mass protests in the former British colony, an official Chinese newspaper said on Monday.

      Riot police surrounded Hong Kong’s parliament early on Monday after what had been a peaceful million-strong protest against the bill descended into running clashes between police and protesters.

      Hundreds of thousands had jammed Hong Kong’s streets earlier on Sunday to protest against the bill in the biggest demonstration in years. Many said they feared it put the city’s vaunted legal independence at risk.

      The China Daily said in an editorial the law was much-needed legislation.

      “Any fair-minded person would deem the amendment bill a legitimate, sensible and reasonable piece of legislation that would strengthen Hong Kong’s rule of law and deliver justice,” it said.

      “Unfortunately, some Hong Kong residents have been hoodwinked by the opposition camp and their foreign allies into supporting the anti-extradition campaign.”

      Some protesters in the Special Administration Region (SAR)had been misled about the changes proposed in the law, while others were trying to promote a political agenda, the English-language publication said.

      “They have failed to realize that the opposition camp is using them merely as pawns in its maneuvers to reap political gains by damaging the SAR government’s credibility and reputation, or that some foreign forces are seizing the opportunity to advance their own strategy to hurt China by trying to create havoc in Hong Kong,” the China Daily said.

      It did not say who those foreign forces might be.

      Foreign governments have expressed concern at the law, warning of the impact on Hong Kong’s reputation as an international financial hub and noting that foreigners wanted in China risked getting ensnared in Hong Kong.

      Human rights groups have repeatedly cited the alleged use of torture, arbitrary detentions, forced confessions and problems accessing lawyers in China.

      Hong Kong officials have defended the plans, even as they raised the threshold of extraditable offences to crimes carrying penalties of seven years or more.

      Another Chinese newspaper, the widely read Global Times tabloid, said on Monday Hong Kong opposition groups and their international supporters were “politically hyping up” normal Hong Kong legislative activity.

      The Hong Kong government would not back down, said the paper, which is published by the ruling Communist Party’s official People’s Daily.
      “The Hong Kong SAR government and mainstream public opinion have worked hard for rule of law and righteousness, and will absolutely not give up halfway,” it said in an editorial in its main Chinese-language edition.

      The protests were otherwise barely mentioned in mainland China. Searches on Weibo, China’s answer to Twitter, took users to reports by pro-Beijing Hong Kong newspapers, including the Wen Wei Po and Ta Kung Pao.

      BBC and CNN reports on the protest were blanked out in China, although the channels can only be viewed in high-end hotels and a small number of apartment buildings and are not available to most Chinese.
