Sometimes You Just Have To Shake Your Head

There are some statements coming from a public official that are so inane that you just have to shake your head. 

Just a couple of examples: you had Rep. Hank Johnson, D-GA, actually ask Admiral Robert Willard in a congressional hearing in April 2010 if putting some U.S. Marines on Guam would make it tip over and capsize.  I kid you not.

No, Rep. Johnson, Guam is not about to tip over
You had Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-TX,  also in 2010, ask if the Mars Pathfinder took a picture of the flag that [Neil Armstrong] planted there.  I kid you not.  

Now today, Feb. 27, 2017, you have the president of the United States actually say that, "Nobody [as in zero, nada] knew that health care could be so complicated."  I kid you not.

President of the United States, Donald Trump on Feb. 27, 2017:

I wonder how many millions of Americans were like kids in a school room, raising their hands in class and yelling at the teacher, Donald Trump,  "I knew!"    :-)
