Oh, it’s like shooting transitional fish fossils in a barrel.
First, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rightly pointed out that Mike Pence is to science as Donald Trump is to leafy green vegetables:
Mike Pence literally does not believe in science.
It is utterly irresponsible to put him in charge of US coronavirus response as the world sits on the cusp of a pandemic.
This decision could cost people their lives. Pence’s past decisions already have. https://t.co/NhMPOusOWm

Of course, Ted Cruz thought he had his boy’s back:
As you are speaking as the oracle of science, tell us, what exactly is a Y chromosome? https://t.co/t4XVVzWr3A

Not sure exactly what he’s trying to get at here. It’s probably some transphobic slur. I don’t happen to speak fluent asshole. Anyway, it did not go as planned for Mr. Science:
Sen. Cruz, while I understand you judge people’s intelligence by the lowest income they’ve had, I hold awards from MIT Lincoln Lab &others for accomplishments in microbiology.
Secondly, I’m surprised you’re asking about chromosomes given that you don’t even believe in evolution. https://t.co/vOIwJhpl7q

Just as Ted Cruz can’t see a Tiktaalik fossil with fish-like and tetrapod-like characteristics, he apparently can’t imagine a woman who uses science for something other than measuring out cake ingredients.
Don’t fret, Ted. Remember that God created aloe on the third day so you could soothe that wicked burn.
