Apollo 11 astronauts Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin were at the White House today for the 50th anniversary of the moon landing:

And Buzz gave a gracious thanks to President Trump that ended with “Keep America Great in Space”:
Just had an excellent meeting with President Donald Trump! We discussed America’s future in space, ways to address space challenges, and the need to keep exploring beyond the horizon. Keep America Great in Space!! #Apollo50 #ApolloXI https://t.co/zv2LgoCheD

And this triggered a whole lot of libs who then attacked the American hero. Here’s but a small sample of the responses to the tweet above:
seriously – you're a coward for standing there with that awful excuse for a human being

Do you support Donald Trump's racist statements? What about the "send her back" chant at his rally, do you support that? I do admire you, but Trump is not a President you can support without answering those questions, and that goes for everyone.

Ok, so you talked to dt regarding the space program, fine. But did you have to write: keep America great in space? C’mon. Smacks of pandering to dt.

Sorry, Buzz. I looked up to you as an explorer I watched you walk on the moon; but, I am afraid you have lost the plot. So long as exploring space is about keeping America great, we are not truly ready to be out there.
