Trump Trollers Are Taking New Heights. Take A Look At The ‘First Protest In Space’
Donald Trump has many critics, and for good reason. The latest Trump troll is out of this world, literally.
On Wednesday the Autonomous Space Agency Network(ASAN), amateurs who promote DIY space exploration, revealed its latest project called “The First Protest in Space.”
They used their skills to troll Trump all the way from space. It involved sending an insulting Trump tweet into orbit on a weather balloon.
The unique protest was inspired by something Apollo 14 astronaut and the sixth person to walk on the moon Edgar Mitchell said regarding politics.
“From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty,” said Mitchell. “You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch.'”
So ASAN used his words and sent them to space.

The balloon unfortunately didn’t reach outer space, it reached around 90,000 feet. Outer space is widely considered to start at around 330,000 feet.
Below is the two hour-long video of the mission.
