Christ on a crumpet:
Stepping into a briefing with @DeptofDefense Secretary Mattis on the creation of the #SpaceForce. As @POTUS Trump has stated clearly and forcefully, space is “a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air, and sea.”

I suspect the entire Space Force concept is a post-hoc justification for some dumb, off-the-cuff thing Trump said. If I’m right, its origins are similar to the voter fraud commission, which was was conjured into existence as post-hoc justification for the stupid, face-saving lie Trump told about “millions of illegal votes” costing him a popular vote victory, when in truth it was millions of sane people recoiling in horror from the prospect of a Trump presidency.
But while the fraudulent fraud commission only wasted a few million dollars, this Space Force business could potentially become a trillion-dollar boondoggle.
PS: Pence is the most obsequious worm in DC. He always tags Trump in on his slobberingly sycophantic tweets and uses language befitting a 19th century bodice-ripper. So embarrassing!
