Neil deGrasse Tyson made a couple of points here. The first is that he doesn’t think one of Trump idea’s is all that bad, and the second might sound familiar:
I’m okay with a US Space Force. But what we need most is a Truth Force — one that defends against all enemies of accurate information, both foreign & domestic.

Maybe next Tyson should consider what might happen if a president he doesn’t like were to get elected and be in charge of the “Truth Force.”
