It’s been awhile since a celebrity flirted with the idea of going to space. But since NSYNC’s Lance Bass is too busy hosting the gay Bachelor, maybe it’s time to send another reality TV host to space.

There is one in particular guy who’s got time some time on his hands, Donald Trump. Well, at least until he starts his new job in 2017. Celebrity Apprentice: White House Edition, I think it’s called.

Neil deGrasse Tyson floated the idea in a tweet yesterday, raising the prospect of launching the former Apprentice host and future emperor of the universe into space at 18,000 mph.

But how will Donald Trump change floating in space staring at the earth while Tyson is whispering in his ear “Look at that, you son of a bitch”?

Will he realize we are all one in a strange, yet beautiful universe? Will he vow to tear down borders and lift up the poor? Will this “cosmic perspective,” like, totally blow his mind and render him incapable of becoming president?

Or will looking at the US-Mexican border, 300 miles in the air only resolve him to make the wall so big and classy you can see it from space?

I’d say the latter. Be careful what you wish for NdT.
