Attorney Jenna Ellis, who represented Donald Trump during the 2020 election, was mocked over the weekend after she suggested that the former president had protected America from a Chinese rocket by creating Space Force.
"Aren't you glad Trump gave us a Space Force?" Ellis asked on Saturday, referring to a Chinese rocket that was falling back to Earth.
Ellis's followers quickly noted that the Air Force's Space Command had existed years before Trump ordered the creation of Space Force, a new branch of the U.S. military.
"We already had US Space Command as part of the US Air Force. Jenna probably doesn't know that," one commenter wrote.
"They were instrumental in not being able to accurately predict when or where it was going to touch down! #MAGA," another person replied.
"One of the more unintentionally hilarious tweets of the evening," another Twitter user said.

Jenna doesn't know a whole lot of basic things that she should know.

trump bribed Tuberville and Mo into relocating the command center from CO to AL to aid in his insurrection. That's the most work trump actually put into his Space Farce

Have they even gotten any vehicles yet? What are they going to do? Intercept it with a 2001 Honda Accord?

The very same Space Force that has no clue or any information about the Chinese rocket that just crash-landed in the Indian Ocean?

I'm more glad that Steve Carell and Greg Daniels gave us Space Force. 😄

How's Rudy's farts treating you ?

I'm pretty sure the Air Force could've done this exact thing

Did they chase it into the Indian Ocean?

You don't know what you're talking about.
USAF already had a Space Command (joining MAC [military airlift command] & TAC [tactical air command]). "Space Force" was just an administrative redress of Space Command. Seriously, the military so no point in creating a whole new branch.

What we have now is more government. We already had the Air Force which handled those duties.

Oh because what did the space farce do exactly?

They literally just broke out Air Force Space Command into a separate force, Jenna. They were getting the job done just fine before. I know, I used to work there.

Yes. We are going to shoot hurricanes at it.
