Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex, blasted MSNBC anchor Chuck Todd for mocking his expressed support for President Donald Trump’s proposed Space Force program.
“Pirates threaten the open seas and the same is possible in space,” Cruz said during an aviation and subcommittee hearing on Wednesday. “In this same way, I believe we too must now recognize the necessity of a Space Force to defend the nation and to protect space commerce and civil space exploration.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The “Meet The Press” moderator had some fun at the expense of the GOP senator, insisting that space pirates “don’t exist.”
“So Ted Cruz says we need a Space Force to stop space pirates, you know, those celestial swashbucklers, intergalactic planet pillagers, buccaneers of the great beyond,” Todd said, chucking “Space pirates don’t exist.”
Cruz offered a sharp response on Twitter, accusing Todd’s network of omitting the threats of “piracy, espionage, & violence” from rival countries and stressed how China has the capacity to “destroy satellites in space.”
“Sure, a frigate w/ skull & crossbones in space is unlikely anytime soon, but what MSNBC conveniently omits is the threat of piracy, espionage & violence from rogue & rival NATIONS is very real,” Cruz tweeted. “Indeed, China has already developed & tested weapons to destroy satellites in space.”
