Russian Embassy Just Went After Trump’s Space Force, Releases Their Own Logo

Trump still honestly believes Congress is going to sign off on this cockamamie plan.

Donald Trump is so excited by his shiny new thing, the Space Force™, that he very kindly asks that everyone stop thinking about conspiring with the Russian government to win the 2016 election, or his son’s meeting with a Russian government lawyer, or the fact that the entire Republican party has seemingly been infiltrated by Russian spies.

But despite his best effort — and by that, we mean, he tried to have a contest among not all Americans, but his supporters only, to help choose a new logo for the new agency — a pretty unlikely reminder of Trump’s Russian entanglements just came from a hilarious source: The Russian Embassy here in America.

The Trump reelection campaign is already underway, and today they sent an email out to donors:


President Trump wants a SPACE FORCE- a ground breaking endeavor for the future of America and the final frontier. As a way to celebrate President Trump’s huge announcement, our campaign will be selling a new line of gear. But first we have to make a final decision on the design we will use to commemorate President Trump’s new Space Force- and he wants YOU to have a say.”

Accompanying the request was an arrangement of logos for supporters to vote on:

Setting aside the fact that Trump is treating the creation of a new branch of the military as a game that only Trump supporters are invited to play — redirected, of course, after voting to donate to the campaign — this whole effort is just silly. If Republicans hadn’t billed themselves as the party of “small government” since the beginning of time, perhaps Americans wouldn’t have as hard a time swallowing the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, ICE, and now a “Space Force.”

But somebody thought the logo effort, in which most of the ideas were clearly ripped off from NASA, was silly enough to make fun of:

Ironically, Russia does have a space force — a division of its Air forces, which integrates satellite technology into Russian defenses.

So Na Zdorovie, Russian Embassy, and thanks for the laugh!
