Manafort's Lawyers' Epic Fail Is Driving Twitter Wild

The criminal case against Paul Manafort got a lot more (publicly) interesting yesterday after it became known that he shared polling data with Russian associate Konstantin Kilimnik. This very juicy information is almost rivaled by how the intel was obtained - via a terrible and arguably hilarious fail on the part of Manafort's lawyers. 

It would seem that these attorneys skipped their redacting class. Instead of, you know, using the redact tool on Photoshop, Manafort's brilliant team just placed black boxes over the text. This allows anyone who knows how to copy and post to reveal the information. As can be expected, the blunder was received with a gigantic collective facepalm from people on Twitter. We're just happy for the laughs, and for the Photoshop lesson.

Trump's 'Space Force' Is Officially A Go And The Internet Is Going Bananas

Donald Trump's "Space Force" proposal is officially coming to fruition, according to an announcement made by Vice President Mike Pence this morning. Pence stated that the Pentagon has started the planning process for the Space Force which, if authorized by Congress, will constitute the sixth branch of United States Military.

The announcement comes two months after Trump called for a Space Force on the grounds that the US should have the potential to protect its military dominance in space against the likes of China and Russia, who have begun making their own respective outer-space advancements. Specifically, a Space Force would serve to defend American satellites from attack.

China and Russia are currently looking to "reduce US military effectiveness," Pence said in a report by USA Today.

Don't get too comfortable with the idea of having a Space Force yet, however. The Trump Administration still needs to get approval from Congress in order to receive funding, although Pence appears hopeful that they are gaining support for the plan.

Should the Administration receive the necessary funding, Pence stated in his speech that the Space Force will be completed by 2020, and that a US Space Command will be created beforehand, drawing officers and forces from other current military branches.

People on the internet have been offering their thoughts on the Space Force, many more snarky than others. What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
