Few people are better at duping the public than Donald Trump. Whether it's tales about how Mexico is going to pay for a giant wall, or how he's going to get the best of the best to become part of his cabinet, or how he would have rushed the gunman in the Florida school.
One of his more recent tall tales is the formation of an elite fighting team to fight in space, calling it Space Force. I mean what can be taller than the universe. Since we already have NASA to handle all things space, why we would need to waste $ Billions forming a new wing of the armed forces is not clear. Who exactly are they going to fight ?
Instead, what is clear, is that this is just another tall tale by Trump to attract the fanciful and more importantly distract the feeble minded from his abysmal presidency and especially from the fact that Robert Mueller is getting closer & closer to implicating the Trumps in conspiracy with Russia.
Yesterday Vice President Mike Pence gave a speech about the imagined Space Force. Thus comedic writer Andy Borowitz spun his own comedic tall tale involving Space Force, as Mike Pence might imagine it.

Pence Calls Space Force Necessary to Protect U.S. from Gay Aliens

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Making a major announcement at the Pentagon on Thursday, Vice-President Mike Pence said that the proposed United States Space Force was necessary to defend the U.S. from gay aliens.
“I stand before you today to say that this country is under attack from outer-space gays,” Pence told the military gathering. “Only Space Force can protect us from their unimaginable evil.”
Pence detailed a nightmare scenario in which “gay aliens by the thousands” land in the U.S. in “seemingly cute spacecraft” and “subvert life in America as we know it.”
“Let’s say, for example, that these gay aliens can assume human form,” he said. “What’s to stop them from infiltrating normal bakeries and baking cakes for gay weddings?”
“I’ll tell you what’s to stop them,” he said, pausing for dramatic effect. “Space Force.”
At the White House, CNN’s Jim Acosta asked the press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, how, exactly, Pence had developed his theory about the existence of gay aliens.
“No one is more qualified to talk about life on other planets than Mike Pence,” Sanders snapped.
