When it comes to the Space Force, Stephen Colbert wants to give credit where it's due.
In June, President Trump proposed establishing the Space Force as the sixth branch of the military, and it's the "boldest idea that he got from a Buzz Lightyear Happy Meal toy," Colbert said on Thursday night's Late Show. Earlier in the day, Vice President Mike Pence gave a speech at the Pentagon about the Space Force, and Colbert said it's "no surprise Pence is a huge fan of space; it's the farthest you can get from being alone with a human woman."
After Pence was finished at the Pentagon, Trump posted a simple tweet: "Space Force all the way!" "Space Force, you know I love it," Colbert said, activating his Trump voice. "I of course would join, but I have space spurs, I can't do it." An email was sent out to Trump supporters on Thursday afternoon, asking them to vote for their favorite Space Force insignia, even though "the final choice will be made by the Electoral Space College," Colbert quipped. They had six to choose from, but that wasn't enough for Colbert — watch the video below to see his special designs, including a special U.S.-Russia logo reading, "In space, no one can hear you collude."
