Holy f*cking shit Donald Trump is stupid. On Saturday, Trump was joined by astronaut Buzz Aldrin to celebrate his decision to revive the National Space Council — not for any noble reasons, but because Mike Pence “is very much into space” according to Trump.
Trump’s executive order will place space cadet Pence in charge of advising The Donald on space exploration (And who knows? Maybe one day Mikey will get to play in a rocket ship like Donnie got to play in a truck).
During Trump’s speech, he managed to make himself sound so f*cking stupid that Aldrin couldn’t help but stare at him like he’s f*cking stupid the whole time.
“Our travels beyond the Earth propel scientific discoveries that improve our lives in countless ways here, right here, at home: powering vast new industry, spurring incredible new technology, and providing the space security we need to protect the American people,” Trump said, adding that WE’RE GONNA BUILD THAT F*CKING SPACE WALL AND MAKE THE ALIENS PAY FOR IT:
And security is going to be a very big factor with respect to space and space exploration. At some point in the future, we’re going to look back and say how did we do it without space?

“We know what this is, space. That’s all it has to say, space.” Trump said as he was about to sign his executive order. He then turned to Aldrin and joked, “There’s a lot of room out there, right?”
“To infinity and beyond,” a grinning Aldrin said. The room, picking up that this was a “Toy Story” joke, laughed. Trump? Well, he didn’t quite “get” the joke.
“This is infinity here. It could be infinity. We don’t really don’t know,” Trump said as though what Aldrin said to him was a serious remark. “But it could be. It has to be something, but it could be infinity, right?”
Aldrin responded by opening his mouth like he was going to reply, shutting it, and staring at Trump like he had just grown a tentacle out of his third nipple and it had begun playing the tuba.
