Russian Embassy mocks Trump's Space Force logos

Source: Politico


By REBECCA MORIN 08/10/2018 10:50 AM EDT

The Russian Embassy in the United States early Friday morning seemingly mocked President Donald Trump's campaign for a logo for the administration's newly announced "Space Force."

Using Trump's favorite mode of communicating, the embassy tweeted "Good Morning, Space Forces!" along with a graphic of a rocket being launched and features the Russian flag. The tweet also links to a Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation's Space Forces website.

The Space Force, which was announced Thursday, will establish a standalone military Space Force by 2020.

Vice President Mike Pence said in during the revealing at the Pentagon that weapons being developed by Russia and China, which include anti-satellite weapons, lasers and hypersonic missiles, could threaten U.S. reliance on space systems.

1. When the Russians do it....

Does Trump even realize he is being mocked?

3. Russians have merely chosen a logo to be used for our future forces...literally!

Snappy, actually...Trump may just use it.

What does the inscription on the logo say?

4. Because we don't spend enough on military

This is nothing but another way to shift more money into the hands of Twitler's buddies.

8. They aren't mocking his logo

They are indicating that they already have such a force (the image is the Russian logo for said force) and providing a link to that section of their Defense Ministry website.

This is awful "reporting" from Politico.

12. And don't forget....

after the Trumptards vote for their favorite logo, they're spirited off to another site where they're asked to donate to Trump's 2020 presidential campaign. And if Trump doesn't run in 2020? He gets to keep the money, right? Everything is a grift for TrumpCrimeInc. Their goal is to steal as much money as possible from their brain-dead supporters and the thinking American taxpayers.

13. I'm still trying to figure out how in the hell we can have a "space force, fuck yeah!"

...when we don't have even a vehicle to get us up there? Everytime one is proposed, the breaks get put on it, budget slashed, a different one proposed, mission changed, etc. There is no focus...Why? Different Congress members trying to push the project that benefits their District or State?
