Former astronaut Buzz Aldrin's expression while listening to Donald Trump speak is very relatable

Space is great. We are going to do a lot of great things in space.

WE ALL KNOW the feeling of being so incredulous that you involuntarily show it on your face. 87-year-old Buzz Aldrin, the second man to ever walk on the moon, is no different.

Earlier in the week, while joining Trump in the White House to sign an order to re-establish the National Space Council, Aldrin displayed a range of facial expressions while Trump was speaking. All of which screamed “What the hell are you talking about?”

The more you watch it, the more it looks as if Buzz Aldrin is being held there at gunpoint.


There was plenty of commentary on Twitter.

It’s not just you Buzz Aldrin, most people were generally astounded by how bad Trump’s speech was.

There were some people doing impressions of Trump that were arguably better than the real speech.

If you can’t laugh at this you’ll probably cry. As one Twitter user put it:

The best part is the sheer number of reaction GIFs we can get from this.

When your mam’s telling someone a story that you know isn’t true…


When the bouncer asks if you’re alright…


Buzz Aldrin is probably wishing he never left the moon.

Perhaps what’s even worse is this exchange that occurred after the speech.

Honestly, fair play to Buzz Aldrin. If you needed any further evidence that he’s just like the rest of us, here’s a photo of him posing beside a cardboard cutout of Ariana Grande.
