Texas Gov. Greg Abbott finally found something even dumber to say than, "Maybe there's something to all this Jade Helm 15 conspiracy talk."


Abbott waded into the political debate over which public bathrooms transgender people should be legally permitted to use with a tweet Tuesday morning comparing the issue to the 1969 moon landing.

Twitter users quickly and mercilessly mocked the Republican governor and former state attorney general.
