In the latest bout of Trumpian weirdness in a time when he definitely has better things to focus on, Donald Trump unveiled the official flag for his favorite new military branch, the “Space Force.” It includes the recently-designed logo on a black background with a white fringe on a long pole to make it perfect for dry-humping by the president later.
But that’s not the weird part.

Trump went ahead and revealed the development of a hypersonic nuclear missile meant to travel at speeds 17 times faster than our standard missiles, because apparently we can’t kill civilians fast enough.
He calls it the “super-duper missile.”
“I call it the super-duper missile,” he said to the press, “and I heard the other night 17 times faster than what they have right now, and you take the fastest missile we have right now.”
Trump went on to brag that the U.S. is currently “building right now incredible military equipment” when we’re still dealing with widespread medical equipment shortages as well as massive unemployment and the threat of mass evictions that could leave millions more Americans homeless.
Meanwhile, the Netflix series Space Force starring Steve Carell and John Malkovich is set to premiere next month. Maybe they can borrow some of the jokes going around Twitter right now.
What Trump is doing is very dangerous. The Super Duper Missile range was scaled back to Far Away from Very Far Away, and payload limited to Big Noisy Bang instead of the heftier Gigundous Kaboom, all according to the Strategic Water Rockets and Splodey Stuff Treaty of 19-Eleventy— Tom Nichols (@RadioFreeTom) May 15, 2020

Well, ya know what they say about Adderall. It makes smart people smarter, and stupid people brainstorm about adding a super duper space missile to our arsenal alongside the interplanetary pooper scooper stored in Uranus.

Trump: “Super Duper Missile”
There has been a lot to intake lately but I don't think I come back from "super duper missile." I think this is the one that breaks me. https://t.co/19Y1d8GzMQ— jess mcintosh (@jess_mc) May 15, 2020
