You don't have to go into it in depth. Getting stuff onto and off of the moon is really complicated and expensive; firing a big-ass nuke from one part of earth to another is comparatively easy and cheap.
Trouble is that that doesn't explain why going to and from the moon is so expensive and difficult. Unless you got someone reputable that people would understand are vastly smarter than Brianna Wu to state a fact without explanation, our testimony is no better than hers. From an uneducated layperson's perspective, dropping rocks off the moon does make sense. If you came along and told them that it simply doesn't work, they wouldn't be convinced.

Again,
"Brianna Wu is more concened about Elon Musk taking over the earth with moonrocks than she is with actual issues in District 8. She's an out of touch techie who believes she lives in a Sci-Fi movie. Don't throw your vote away with Space Cadet Wu, vote for Down To Earth Lynch".
Mock the sheer ridiculousness of it instead of trying to show why it's ridiculous.

I'm trying to think of ways to explain why the moon rock thing is bullshit in a way that ordinary people can understand. Maybe just say such a thing would require rockets that don't currently exist?

It doesn't really need to be explained every time it's mentioned, although a two minute thing explaining why it is stupid might be worth it.

In general, the public is going to hear some crazy thing about the Moon and just think it's fucking ridiculous with no explanation needed. Look at Newt Gingrich and his Moon shit, even though his Moon shit made a lot more sense than John's.

And I'm so glad that the astrophysics PhDs , military engineers and geopolitical experts who post here have convinced me otherwise.
