People caught onto Donald Trump’s lying long ago. He lied to the military troops when he visited them in an Iraqi combats zone. He said he had given them a ten percent raise, and they had received zero for the past ten years. Both were Trump lies. Then, POTUS tweeted about his long-suffering idea, building the wall. This was a whopper.
It has become hard to find anyone not wearing a red MAGA cap who thinks it is a good idea to build a wall, much like China’s Great Wall. Never fear, the Border Patrol agents are here, Trump tweeted:
‘“Border Patrol Agents want the Wall.” Democrat’s (sic) say they don’t want the Wall (even though they know it is really needed), and they don’t want ICE. They don’t have much to campaign on, do they? An Open Southern Border and the large scale crime that comes with such stupidity!’
Of course, Border Patrol agents do not want a wall. They want security, which is a completely different issue. Trump tried to dump the blame on his enemy, the “Democrat’s (sic) say they don’t want the wall.” Apparently, the commander-in-chief could not imagine that there were any Democrats among the Border Patrol agents.
People kept pointing out that people can go over, under, and even through a wall in some cases. They can come to the U.S. by boat or by air. They can come and overstay their visas.
Trump thought his idea would be more palatable if we called it something other than a “wall.” There were the “concrete planks” and “steel slats.” Most recently, he spoke about the “artistically designed steel slats.”
Still, a wall is a wall is a wall is a wall, no matter what he calls it. Maybe an invisible wall would go over better.
