There's eventually going to come a time when we'll look back on all the craziness happening in America right now and laugh about it. At least that's the hope.
For now, everyone else in the world is looking on aghast at what's happening. The current President is a former reality TV show host who's publicly attacking journalists' physical appearance, and is a big fan of a guy who believes water is turning frogs gay and that there's a child-slave colony on Mars.
Alex Jones, known as that really loud guy who crops up in those people freaking out on TV compilations on YouTube, had a segment on his InfoWars show with Robert David Steele. Steele, supposedly a former CIA agent, made the extraordinary and utterly bizarre claim that NASA is running a child slave colony on Mars.
Let's repeat that again. This man believes that the National Aeronautes and Space Administration built a colony on Mars and is "populated by children who were kidnapped and sent into space on a 20 year ride so that once they get to Mars they have no alternative but to be slaves on the Mars colony."
Still don't believe us? We've got receipts.
As you can imagine, NASA was asked about the whole thing by DailyBeast who responded with a pretty succinct answer. "There are no humans on Mars. There are active rovers on Mars... But there are no humans."
Fine, it's a batshit insane story and nobody in their right mind would believe it. What makes this so terrifying, however, is that Alex Jones was nodding along with this guy and Donald Trump - who is currently the leader of the free world - believes that Jones has "a great reputation," and did a half-hour interview with him on the very same show that this went out on.
That's the real craziness here.
