“Space Force” on Netflix is a topical show. Surely most folks who will watch this series already know what inspider it, and those who don’t will probably figure it out quickly.
But for those who don’t keep up with the new all that closely: in the real world, Donald Trump ordered the creation of a real United States Space Force, and now we have a TV show about a new United States Space Force, and the unseen fictional Us president on that show tweets a lot. You do the math.
But nobody on the show ever comes out and say that this fictional president is Donald Trump. And while the jokes about the president’s Twitter habits are a pretty clear reference to Trump, the Steve Carell series, which launched on Netflix Friday, certainly dances around the president’s identity.
