Trump’s Vision for America Includes Wars in Space (and an Elite Space Fighting Force)

Well, we’ve already got Space Ghost, so why not Space Force?

President Trump spoke to a group of service members today, and he was in rare form. His Twitter-booting of Rex Tillerson has apparently opened up his best brain to an entirely new realm of possibilities.

Like a new military branch.

“Space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air, and sea,” Trump told a an audience of service members at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. “We may even have a Space Force, develop another one, Space Force. We have the Air Force, we’ll have the Space Force.”

Please… Somebody tell him “Star Wars” was just a movie.

The president described how he’d originally coined the term as a joke, while discussing U.S. government spending and private investment in space. “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,” Trump told the crowd of Marines.

And I know there has been a lot of talk of colonizing space, but to this point, it has been more science fiction than science fact.

Elon Musk has broached the subject of colonizing Mars. Infowars claims there are already colonies of enslaved children there.

I’m not sure which of those sources is having more of an effect on Trump’s current frame of mind.

So was Trump joking?

“So think of that, Space Force,” Trump continued, “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.”

I’m totally for loading Trump on a rocket and shooting him into space.

In the meantime, however, we’re stuck with him on earth, and nobody really knows what he’s talking about (including himself).
