Every Star Railing on Trump's Policies

"The time has come to establish the United States Space Force," Pence says Thursday and Twitter responds with nothing but mockery.

Space Force is official, and still sounds like the least important thing the government should be spending money on, according to the avalanche of stars from Hollywood and beyond bashing the program on Twitter Thursday.

"Space Force: A deliberately stupid and provocative idea designed to make you forget about the Mueller investigation," Ricky Gervais tweeted after Vice President Mike Pence announced at a press conference he'd be taking the program under his wing.

"Now the time has come to write the next great chapter in the history of our armed forces, to prepare for the next battlefield where America’s best and bravest will be called to deter and defeat a new generation of threats to our people, to our nation," Pence said at the Pentagon.

Pence set a deadline of 2020 for the Space Force to blast off as the newest branch of the United States military.

"To be clear, the Space Force will not be built from scratch, because the men and women who run and protect our nation's space programs today are already the best in the world," the VP added, assuring that the deadline was not too hasty.

The federal government recognizing the threat of extraterrestrial lifeforms invading planet Earth should be no laughing matter -- but this is the age of President Donald Trump, so no one appears to be taking it all that seriously.

"This Is Us" producer Ken Olin tweeted, "The least prepared, least disciplined, least intellectually qualified, least morally suited, least mentally stable person to ever be President wants to spend $8 billion on a new branch of the military, Space Force. And we can’t laugh."
