I believe you were right about that, by the way, but it was almost refreshing to hear an even slightly nuanced defense of anything Trump has proposed. Caught me off guard. I'm sure if you force fed him truth serum and then asked him why he wants to create a Space Force, he'd say "yeah it just sounds cool, but more importantly distracts from all of the various investigations and lawsuits against me".

We have run out of things to throw money at on earth.
Look there are only so many decorative napkin holders with your initials on them that you can possibly get before you are decorative-napkin-holdered out. You can only commission so many large oil paintings of yourself in a red hunting jacket staring wistfully at your pack of hounds, and you can only buy Scott Pruitt so many first-class seats and personalized telephone booths before you start to feel empty and bored.
And then what can you do? You cannot build yourself an enormous armored suit and go around fighting crime. (Well, you can, but it is frowned upon.) You can build an ill-received rescue submarine and then leave it in a cave, after calling the actual rescuer a pedophile, but … Elon Musk already did it, and there is no reason to wish to do it again.
