From Pence's idiotic photo op of getting the COVID vaccine at a gun show, to Pence's earnest reveal that members of Trump's new Space Force [sic] would be called "Guardians", Brian Williams ably skewered the parody of itself known as the Trump administration.
MSNBC anchor Brian Williams mocked Vice President Mike Pence over his vaccine photo op just months after declaring the coronavirus pandemic was under control, and for his announcement that Space Force members will be called “Guardians.”
Williams ended Friday night’s edition of The 11th Hour with a segment mocking Pence’s “big day” getting vaccinated on camera — almost six months to the day after declaring there would be no second wave of the pandemic — and announcing the name of “Space-Forcians.”
Today, after a yearlong process that produced hundreds of submissions and research involving space professionals and members of the general public, we can finally share with you the name by which we will be known: Guardians. pic.twitter.com/Tmlff4LKW6
