I thought this was an April Fools Day hoax. Unfortunately it’s true.
Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) is afraid that the U.S. Territory of Guam is going to “tip over and capsize” due to overpopulation.
Johnson expressed his worries during a House Armed Services Committee hearing on the defense budget Friday.
Addressing Adm. Robert Willard, who commands the Navy’s Pacific Fleet, Johnson made a tippy motion with his hands and said sternly, “My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.”
Folks, this kind of ignorance belongs in juvy hall remedial class, not in the U.S. Government.
