In a short Oval Office event on Friday, May 15, Defense Department officials presented Donald Trump with the US Space Force flag. In dark blue and white, it represented the vast recesses of the outer space. The force was established in December and is one of the first military services that has been introduced since the US Air Force was founded in 1947. "It is a very special moment because it is the presentation of the Space Force flag," Trump said at the unveiling and added that it should have been started a long time ago. According to Chief of Space Operations Gen. John Raymond,  as many as 16,000 experts and professionals have been assigned to the branch.

"We have developed some of the most incredible weapons anyone's ever seen. It's moving along very rapidly, and we have tremendous people in charge," CNN reported as Trump shared and boasted that the US is developing a "super-duper missile" that can go 17 times faster than the current crop of missiles available at their disposal. A few hours later, Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman didn't confirm but announced that the team was working on certain kinds of missiles. "The Department of Defense is working on developing a range of hypersonic missiles to counter our adversaries," he tweeted.

Shortly after, a troll fest kicked off on Twitter where people joined forces to collectively make jokes out of Trump's comment on the missile. "Wasn't super-duper missile a porn star in the 80s?" Matthew Dowd, Chief Political Analyst with ABC News, asked, while guitarist Charles Johnson, tweeted: "The president of US is boasting about a new 'super-duper missile'. We're totally in the Idiocracy timeline." 'Billions' showrunner Brian Koppelman shared, "If there isn't an adult movie called Super-Duper Missile up on the hubs by tomorrow, that industry is really letting us all down."

Sportswriter and editor at The Mac Life, John Balfe, wrote how he was not able to show excitement about the words Trump used to describe the work-in-progress missiles. "Trump just unveiled something he called the 'Super-Duper Missile' at the official launch of the Space Force. These are things I would have resoundingly endorsed as a child but for some reason, I just can't generate any enthusiasm today," he wrote.
