Trump space force
A ridiculous cartoon character is joined onstage by Max Moon.

Just days after WWE Hall of Famer and US “President” Donald Trump announced a new “Space Force” as the sixth branch of the US military, he decreed that the organization will be led by intergalactic grappler Max Moon.

“America will rule space with fire and fury, and Max Moon will lead the way with his super-awesome jetpack,” Trump said at a rally in Minnesota.

Trump continued: “Max Moon defeated Terry Taylor, he defeated Repo Man, and now he will beat any space immigrants who try to sneak across Earth’s border, believe me.”

Trump was joined onstage by Moon, who used his jetpack to ascend effortlessly up the steel steps leading to the podium, much to the amazement of rally commentators (though some skeptics have suggested he was just hopping).

Later in the rally, Trump claimed that Space Force will allow the United States will become “Universal Champion,” and will only have to fight to defend that title very rarely.
