A little something from the Bezos enemies of the people:

President Trump’s ceremony Friday to bring back the National Space Council began to confuse people even before it took place.

“At some point in the future, we’re 636205614391785148656170243_Screen Shot 2017-01-20 at 8.57.50 PMgoing to look back and say how did we do it without space?” is how the president put it.

“The human soul yearns for discovery,” Trump said. “Our journey into space will not only make us stronger and more prosperous, but will unite us behind grand ambitions and bring us all closer together.

“Wouldn’t that be nice? Can you believe that space is going to do that?”

When Mike Pence was a congressman, he once chaired a Republican study group that recommended canceling NASA’s space exploration program—no moon or Mars trips—to save money.

But Pence’s 2005 plan didn’t go anywhere, and on Friday, he said he was “honored and frankly enthusiastic” about leading the National Space Council.

Trump assured those gathered donaldalienthat “Mike is very much into space.”

“This is going to launch a whole new chapter for our great country,” Trump said near the end of his speech.

Then he sat down at a table and opened the executive order.

“I know what this is,” he said. “Space!”

Beside him, Buzz Aldrin chimed in with a quote from the astronaut character Buzz Lightyear from the movie Toy Story.

“Infinity and beyond!” Aldrin said.

Everyone laughed.

Then Trump added some lines of his own.

“This is infinity here,” he said. “It could be infinity. We don’t really don’t know. But it could be. It has to be something—but it could be infinity, right?”
