Donald Trump just cannot let a modest slight go. Apparently, when Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that walls are “immoral,” the word crept under POTUS’ skin and festered there like a boil. Unfortunately, his suggestion was funny, and the president hates to be laughed at most of all.
Trump wanted to enter the New York upper class when he lived there, but he did not have enough class to be accepted by those whose acceptance he most wanted. It seems though, even a billionaire cannot buy class.
The president has been trying to hit the speaker back 10 times harder than he hit her, but Pelosi has been running circles around him with her sharp mind and lifelong political experience. Trump tried, though when he t tweeted:
‘If Nancy Pelosi thinks that Walls are “immoral,” why isn’t she requesting that we take down all of the existing Walls between the U.S. and Mexico, even the new ones just built in San Diego at their very strong urging. Let millions of unchecked “strangers” just flow into the U.S.’
Of course, Trump’s tweet was a not-so-subtle threat that the Democrats led by Pelosi would “let millions of unchecked ‘strangers” into the U.S. His base appears to believe whatever the man currently sitting in the Oval Office tells them. He told the small crowd at the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) annual meeting in Kansas City, Missouri to not pay attention to what they see or hear, just him.
His tweet’s logic was grossly flawed. If Pelosi does not want more walls, then she should pull all of the existing ones down.
That may bring his base forward in spite of what will follow in these historical but ghastly times. However, those who have not been getting their checks during Trump’s 31-day shutdown and counting may prefer a check with real numbers to 45.
