“Space is a war-fighting domain, just like land, air, and sea. We may even have a Space Force, develop another one, Space Force. We have the Air Force, we’ll have the Space Force.”
Donald Trump mumbled before an audience of service members at the Marine Corps Air Station Mirimar on Tuesday. I didn’t make this up just now. This is 100% a true thing that happened, even though it seems like a bad “Saturday Night Live” skit. But wait! There’s more! CNBC (@cnbc) reported, Trump continued on about his plans as he told the Marines how he’d come up with such a bright idea……all by himself
“I said, maybe we need a new force, we’ll call it the Space Force, and I was not really serious. Then I said, what a great idea! Maybe we’ll have to do that. So think of that, Space Force. Because we are spending a lot and we have a lot of private money coming in, tremendous. You saw what happened the other day, and tremendous success. From the very beginning, many of our astronauts have been soldiers and air men, Coast Guard men, and Marines. And our service members will be vital to ensuring America continues to lead the way into the stars.
When asked to comment on whether or not the president’s comments were a joke, the White House declined to comment. Hint The president’s comments were not a joke. The White House is scared to comment because whatever they tell the press today, Trump will surely say the exact opposite tomorrow like he always does. Many in the White House have learned that the best course of action when asked about the president’s erratic behavior is to have no comment. What likely happened was, Donald was up late last night watching “Independence Day” when he came up with the brilliant idea that we are in desperate need of a “Space force” to combat the imminent alien invasion that is coming any day. This is YOUR president. This is the person who has control of the fate of our Country in his hands. Sleep well America.
