People are poking fun at the Pentagon over its new animated promo video.
It features a swashbuckling pirate and an ice cream cone-wielding reporter.
Check out the video here:
Many folks on Twitter lightheartedly suggested the Defense Department made the simplistic video so it could be understood by President Donald Trump:
Well that was nice of the Department of Defense to produce a video that Trump can understand….

The Department of Defense home page (https://t.co/7VcxYYN1ef) now features a garish and infantile two-minute animated video that explains what DOD does in the most simplistic way possible. It only makes sense if the intended audience is third graders or … our toddler-in-chief. pic.twitter.com/WAViCB0nl4

Oh boy… if I were say an enemy of the US and I wanted to undermine any sense of awe for the Department of Defense, here’s the video I’d create about them https://t.co/DzBC4krXkr
