Legendary space explorer Buzz Aldrin is the second man in human history to walk on the moon. However, it seems that that awe-inspiring experience may have paled in comparison to Aldrin’s first encounter with the dumbest president in the universe, Donald J. Trump.
In late June, during a press event at the White House, Trump announced the signing of an executive order authorizing the reestablishment of the National Space Council. And while Trump claims that he would like to put a man on Mars during his term,
And while Trump claims that he would like to put a human on Mars during his presidency, it was clear that he couldn’t even land a successful “presidential” speech without making a complete ass of himself.
Trump started off strong, reading from his script (in his usual 3rd grader cadence) he almost managed to pull off a pretty semi-decent impersonation of a real president. He spoke about “discovery” and how the 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.”
Stopping right there would have been a great “win” for Trump. But, he just couldn’t help himself. He then added:
“Wouldn’t that be nice? Can you believe that space is going to do that?”
He then proceeded to expand upon his stupidity with this beauty.
“At some point in the future, we’re going to look back and say how did we do it without space?” Trump asked, as if “space” was one of the scientists on the team.
Much like his animated Disney character “Buzz Lightyear,” Aldrin’s animated facial expressions in response to Trump’s idiocy is sure to go down in internet history.
"One day we will look back and say how did we do it without space?"

And as Trump sat down to do his most favorite thing in the world when he’s playing president (sign executive orders), he “profoundly” opined:
“I know what this is. Space!”
In a humanitarian effort to save Trump from looking like a complete fool, Buzz jumped in and joked using his Disney character’s famous catchphrase “To infinity and beyond!” prompting chuckles of relief from other onlookers.
However, Trump managed to miss the joke like a fucking champ as he replied:
“This is infinity here. 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?” he said and signed the order.
Here’s a complete video, skip ahead to the 2:13 mark to see the signing.
Trump should consider donating his brain to science. That way they can send it into space to deter any potential alien invaders from visiting earth.
And the funniest thing is, he’s just narcissistic enough to think it would be an excellent idea.
