Well Allen, here’s some more info. From Vox:
“So amazing, we are ordering hundreds of millions of dollars of new airplanes for the Air Force, especially the F-35,” Trump told an Air Force officer who was attending the press conference. “You like the F-35? … You can’t see it. You literally can’t see it. It’s hard to fight a plane you can’t see.”
It’s not clear what the president means when he says, “You literally can’t see it.” The F-35 is not invisible like Wonder Woman’s jet; the plane is designed to strike targets from beyond their visible range, but so are all other modern fighter aircraft. [My bolding.]
I don’t think this was meant as satire, I think the writer simply didn’t know that the F-35 is invisible to other fighter pilots. Also to Air Traffic Control: they have to make special mods so it can be seen.
I remember when a North Korean missile launch failed, everybody was speculating somebody had hacked their software, I was thinking they (our navy) might have been testing a laser (or maser) weapon.
That doesn’t excuse my not noticing that this is a satire channel. I do think it would have been even funnier if you had known: satirizing the MSM always accusing the President of “lying” when they don’t know what they’re talking about.
