LMAO! Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee Says Houston Is 50′ Below Sea Level!
In the days following the devastation along the Texas Gulf Coast, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee joined Roland Martin to discuss the severity of this disaster. At the 2:20 mark Congresswoman Jackson Lee enters the discussion and wasted no time in exposing her wealth of knowledge about Houston when she said, “Many people don’t know that Houston is 50′ below sea level and still flooding.”
Whaaaaaat? Yeah, she said that. You can watch the YouTube video of the interview below.
downtown Houston is somewhere between 43-53 feet ABOVE sea level, but let’s not let facts get in the way of such an articulate speech that dabbles in discussions of how the weather is racist in targeting black communities along the Texas Gulf Coast.
It wouldn’t be the first time a she’s made a blunder of this magnitude, but it is worthy of noting that she is currently the U.S. Representative for Texas’s 18th congressional district, serving since 1995. The district includes most of central Houston and she is a member of the Democratic Party.
