The federal government remains partially shutdown at present and hundreds of thousands of government workers have to question whether they’ll be able to care for themselves and their families, but President Donald Trump is having a grand old time anyway. This Sunday, he tweeted that he wished everyone could see the beautiful snow covering the Rose Garden at the White House, playing pretend like he’s some kind of remotely normal president who captures the attention and respect of a majority of people anywhere.
He belted out:
‘Wish I could share with everyone the beauty and majesty of being in the White House and looking outside at the snow filled lawns and Rose Garden. Really is something – SPECIAL COUNTRY, SPECIAL PLACE!’
The mishmash of sentiment comes as Trump continues to cast his efforts to secure a border wall blocking off Mexico as key to protecting the very identity of that “SPECIAL COUNTRY, SPECIAL PLACE!” He has repeatedly pointed to crimes undocumented immigrants commit, including on Twitter in the most recent post before the one cited above.
Turning abuse victims into political pawns, he ranted:
‘Thousands of illegal aliens who have committed sexual crimes against children are right now in Texas prisons… We can end this easily – We need a Steel Barrier or Wall. Walls Work!’
He did not mention the mass amounts of native born Americans who have committed similar crimes and explain why, to him, the fact that a shared plague on humanity also affects immigrants means that entire populations should be walled off.
He didn’t explain as much because he has no legitimate answer. He just prefers his fantasy where there’s snow on the ground outside the White House and people actually like him.
