TIRED: We’re too broke to keep doing joint military exercises with South Korea.

“It is not enough to merely have an American presence in space, we must have American dominance in space. Very importantly I’m hereby directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a space force as the sixth branch of the armed forces, that is a big statement,” Trump said at a meeting of the National Space Council on Monday. “We are going to have the Air Force and we are going to have the space force, separate but equal, it is going to be something.”
Donald Trump is creating a ‘Space Force’ as a new military branch. ‘Separate but equal’ of course coming from a man who thinks that expression means he can keep black people out of the buildings he owns because he thinks they should be ‘separate’.
Is Space Force Donald Trump’s best idea yet?
Well so far, Trump has banned trans people from the military. Banned immigration from Middle Eastern countries. He’s currently ripping kids from their parents at the border. Space Force is the first thing that he’s screamed into a microphone that isn’t racist or homophobic.
There have been around 20 astronaut deaths trying to leave orbit but it’s been awhile since we’ve had a real good fun astronaut murder. Thankfully, Trump wants to send more innocent people into space for no reason.
Personally, we should probably continue sending out cameras and explore space via technology instead of sending humans out there but I mean, if they have health benefits then sign me up right now. Deadseriousness does not pay for medical. I can’t even see what I’m typing because I can’t afford glasses.
I’m ready for Space Force.
Also real quick, this is pretty much the plot of Captain Marvel, right? She’s an airforce pilot and the government gets her to join their secret space monitoring program and then she ends up with alien powers? Sign. Me. Up. Yesterday.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you’re ready to sign up for the Space Force with me. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
