Someone Created An Image Of Trump And Roger Stone In Swastika-Laden 'Space Force' Suits—And Stone Shared It

Are you excited about President Donald Trump's Space Force? Roger Stone sure is, so much so that on Monday, he shared a picture to his Instagram of himself, Trump, and several other Trump inner-circlers wearing Space Force suits––that are embroidered with swastikas. It is unknown who created this disturbing masterpiece.


"Space Force all the way!"

Surrounding Trump are Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA), Trump's TV lawyer Rudy Giuliani, political operative and obvious meme genius Roger Stone, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Vice President and Space Force brand ambassador Mike Pence, and Trump's Fox News therapist, Sean Hannity.

While the post has since been deleted, here's a screenshot for your viewing pleasure:

Stone, clearly not getting that this image is satire and shouldn't be taken as a compliment, added his own caption: "I love this - proud to be in this crew - but the only lies being told are by liberal scumbags #maga #republican#infowars."

Stone wrote that he is proud to be shown wearing a swastika, which isn't something that should ever be a thing.

The real question is: is Stone prouder of the swastika patch, or of his Richard Nixon tattoo?

Stone tried to twist the slogan, "in space, no one can hear you lie," to make it apply to liberals, rather than the president.

Because liberals lie their way through space, apparently, while Trump & Co. are pinnacles of truth.

Stone is currently a subject in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Russian attack on the 2016 election and its possible ties to the Trump campaign. Stone's connections to WikiLeaks and Guccifer 2.0, a hacking group suspected of carrying out Russia's cyber warfare operations, are of particular interest to Mueller.

On Monday, Stone expressed his willingness to cooperate with Mueller but under "no circumstance" would he testify against Trump, if it ever comes to that.

"First of all, I have nothing that I could say about him that would be negative," Stone told CNN's Erin Burnett on Outfront. "Secondarily, I'm just not going to do that."

We'll see.

Twitter exploded over the Space Force Nazi squad.

"Roger Stone found a way to simultaneously endorse Space Force and Nazis...

...What a stupid time to be alive."

"Just when you thought Stone couldn't be more unhinged..."

Are all right-wingers Nazis now? (No, of course not, but this doesn't help).

Liberals bad, swastikas NBD.

Roger Stone: Space Nazi.

Let's do more!

"They're ready. Send um up."

This.

Roger Stone is a smart guy, so why would he post this?

And we think he's sentient...

... but who knows anymore.

Across the country, states have instituted stay-at-home orders in an effort to curb the spread of the highly contagious virus that's upended daily life in the United States.

Late last month, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers issued one of these orders, urging his constituents to only leave their houses for necessary errands, such as getting groceries or filling prescriptions.

There's just one problem: Wisconsin's elections are scheduled for April 7. In addition to the Presidential primaries, Wisconsinites will vote for judicial positions, school board seats, and thousands of other offices.

The Democratic and Republican National Committees took the case to the Supreme Court, with Democrats arguing that the deadline for mailing absentee ballots should be extended by a week, to April 13, in order to facilitate voting from home.

With a Wisconsin Supreme Court Seat up for grabs on Tuesday, Republicans predictably made the case for why as few people as possible should be permitted to vote. It was a continuation of Wisconsin GOP efforts to suppress the vote, which included rejecting a demand from Governor Evers to automatically mail an absentee ballot to every resident.

The Republican majority in United States Supreme Court sided with the RNC and the election in Wisconsin will carry on as scheduled. This is despite Wisconsin being unprepared for the surge in absentee ballot requests, which leapt from a typical 250,000 to over 1.2 million in reaction to the virus. Thousands of these voters won't even receive these ballots until after the election, thereby preventing them from exercising their right to vote.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote a blistering dissent to the majority's decision, saying:

"Either [voters] will have to brave the polls, endangering their own and others' safety. Or they will lose their right to vote, through no fault of their own. That is a matter of utmost importance — to the constitutional rights of Wisconsin's citizens, the integrity of the State's election process, and in this most extraordinary time, the health of the Nation."

She was flabbergasted that her more conservative colleagues didn't think a global pandemic and national crisis was enough to justify emergency policies ensuring Wisconsinites their right to vote:

"The Court's suggestion that the current situation is not 'substantially different' from 'an ordinary
election' boggles the mind...Now, under this Court's order, tens of thousands of absentee voters, unlikely to receive their ballots in time to cast them, will be left quite literally without a vote."

A majority of the Supreme Court may not have agreed with Ginsburg, but the court of public opinion was fully on her side.





The Republican efforts indicated to some that the party cares more about maintaining control than preserving lives.




Large crowds are already gathering in Wisconsin to vote.

In a bit of devastating irony, the Supreme Court voted remotely when making its decision.

Despite numerous cautions from medical experts—including those on his staff—President Donald Trump continues to tout hydroxychloroquine as a promising treatment for the virus that's brought daily life in the United States to a standstill.

The drug has undergone no clinical trials to scientifically test its efficacy on the virus, and the evidence on its behalf is anecdotal at best. One Fox News guest, Access Health International Chairman William Haseltine, called it a "quack cure."

With the global pandemic bringing daily life in the United States to a screeching halt, the 2020 campaign has become somewhat of an afterthought as Americans focus on staying healthy and practicing social distancing.

But though the campaign trail is no longer in full swing, voters across the country can't help but see this crisis as a test of competence for President Donald Trump and a test of leadership for former Vice President and likely Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

A recent in-depth report from the Washington Post detailed the 70 day period between President Donald Trump's first knowledge of the virus and his eventual acknowledgment that the pandemic—which has killed over 10,000 people in the United States—poses a serious threat.

Trump's constant dismissal of the virus wasn't for lack of experts and longtime lawmakers warning him of the possibilities, as Washington Post opinion writer Greg Sargent points out.

Author and military historian Max Boot is a self-identified conservative, but he's by no means a supporter of President Donald Trump. Boot endorsed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential election and he's frequently referred to Trump as the worst President in modern times.

But in a blistering new op-ed for the Washington Post, Boot removes the "in modern times" qualifier, referring to Trump as simply the worst President in U.S. history, citing his delayed and inadequate response to the virus that's brought the United States to a standstill.
