I make it a point to watch as many of the rallies President Donald Trump holds as possible.

One of the most consistent aspects of these events is the absolute enthusiasm the crowds have for the new US Space Force. This week, the Pentagon revealed the uniform for the newest branch of our military.

The U.S. Space Force (USSF) late Friday unveiled camouflage uniforms bearing the branch’s first nametapes for its members.

“The first #SpaceForce utility uniform nametapes have touched down in the Pentagon,” the service branch tweeted from its official account, attaching a photo of the uniforms.

The uniforms were welcomed with praise by some, including the official Twitter account for the U.S. Navy, which called the clothing “out of this world” in a tweet.

“What are the coordinates? Let’s trade,” the military branch added.

Despite the success of the Space Force roll-out, people must deride President Donald Trump’s efforts whenever and wherever possible. The #TrumpDergangementSyndrome-inflected media partnered with the #Resistance-bots in social media, once again, to create and promote fake news mocking the uniform.

Some examples:

Though I will give bonus points for a “Star Wars” mention and a deduction for a trite Trump reference:

However, solid reasons were provided for not going with an homage to “Star Trek:”

Given the ensuing social media theatrics, Space Force officials launched an effective response.

The force explained its rationale in a tweeted response. It said it was “utilising current Army/Air Force uniforms” and “saving costs of designing/producing a new one” in doing so.

“Members will look like their joint counterparts they’ll be working with, on the ground,” the force added in the tweet.

In related news, Trump had his first official briefing with the US Space Force:

The goal of the briefing, which was also attended by Defense Secretary Mark Esper, was to inform the president of upcoming milestones as the Space Force gradually comes into being, said Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman.

“Gen. Raymond has a very specific, very thorough plan on things that need to take place — moving pay systems, assigning individuals to the Space Force, looking at basing, figuring out if we’re going to be transferring bases to the Space Force,” Hoffman told reporters.

The meeting was about “laying out for the president what the process looks like — what are the next steps, what are the things that are going to be happening over the next couple months — to give him an expectation,” he added. “This is something [Trump has] been very forward leaning on and is something that he is interested in, so we’ve been trying to keep him informed.”

Trump’s detractors will fail at reducing America’s support of the new military branch, and this is just the lastest in a long line of botched attempts to derail the President’s America First agenda.
