GOP candidate: Sea levels might stop rising if we take all the boats out of the oceans

Scott Pio is a Republican candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates who had an idea in a recent Twitter post for lowering the earth’s sea levels. 

“I’m curious, Do you think the sea level would lower, if we just took all the boats out of the water? Just a thought, not a statement,” Pio wrote in a tweet that was later deleted. 

Pio’s musings caught the attention of the Loudoun County Democratic Committee, who declared in a Twitter post that his comments prove that he’s too dumb to hold office. But Pio quote-tweeted their post and doubled down. 

“When you take things out of bath water, the bath water decreases, does it not?” Pio wrote. “Got a lot of hate from your group for asking a question about taking things out of the water. Curious when you stopped believing in pure physics? I guess you don’t believe in science experiments?”

Highlighting the story this Monday, Blue Virginia pointed out some of Pio’s other views: he believes life begins at “conception”; he’s hostile to transgender rights; he thinks Critical Race Theory should “disappear.” 

“The scary thing is, this guy’s not an outlier for today’s Republican Party – the party of Donald Trump, Marjorie Taylor-Greene, Lauren Boebert, Bob Good, Ken Cuccinelli, Glenn Youngkin, Winsome Sears, Jason Miyares, etc,” the Blue Virginia article stated. “Which means, of course, that we’d better not let these people take power, here in Virginia or nationally, unless/until their entire party fundamentally changes back to sanity and actual, conservative principles, not extremist lunacy.”

As RawStory points out, Pio revealed in a previous tweet that he’s the organizer for the Trump International Rapid Response Team. “We Rapid Respond when Trump goes golfing in Virginia,” he wrote
