The White House Officially Rolled Out the Space Force, And Twitter Reported For Duty: ‘I Have Space Bone Spurs’
President Donald Trump announced the creation of a space force a few months back, but Vice President Mike Pence said today that the White House is planning to launch it by 2020 – a mere two years from now.
Twitter was ready for the announcement with the memes and the snark.
I’d love to join up, but I have space bone spurs.https://t.co/fgrJ4xta7A
