One of the most powerful members of the U.S. government thinks we can dig a hole to China to hear the communist regime laughing at President Trump.
During a press conference on Capitol Hill today, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters all we have to do is “dig a hole” because she thinks China is on the other side of the world from America.
Spoiler alert: It’s not.
Criticizing the president while he’s overseas — a taboo practice when President Obama was in office — told the media, “Candidate Trump said that what’s happening in China trade was the greatest theft in the history of the world.
“And yesterday, he said our trade deficit with China, which was huge is not China’s fault,” Pelosi said.
Trump blamed Obama’s poor negotiating and “incompetence” for the imbalance, according to a Thursday tweet.
“You can almost hear the leadership of the Chinese government laughing from China to America,” she continued.
“Maybe you can feel it coming through the ground because if you dig a hole here, you will reach China,” Pelosi said.
It turns out the one-time Speaker of the House, who was third in line to the presidency, is geographically challenged.
“There is an informal and anecdotal belief among Americans that if you dig a hole deep enough, eventually you would come out in China,” PeakBagger.com reports.
“This is theoretically possible if the hole is angled in the right way, but if you dig straight down and through the exact center of the earth from anywhere in the 48 contiguous United States, you’d come out in the Indian Ocean.
“Only in parts of Argentina or Chile would a straight hole emerge in China,” the site notes.
“If your geography is adequate, you can tell that the furthest away place from New York in the world is a spot a few hundred miles southwest of Perth, Australia, off in the Ocean.”
