“We don’t get paid very much for this, do we? You look at that, nobody comes through. But our own border, we don’t take care of it.” – Donald Trump on the ROI of the DMZ
It looks smaller on the map
Because you can’t spell “tangent” or “Trump” without a “T,” the Rambler-in-Chief went off off-topic again in Ohio recently. This time, he’s trying to make the case that what works on the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) that separates the two Koreas should work just fine to secure the border with Mexico.
Which would be fine, if the border with Mexico, like the DMZ, ran for about 160 miles. It does not.
It’s more like 1,900 miles.
Let’s hear it for Infrastructure Week!
What’s with the border stuff again?
Hey there, Mr. Van Winkle: hope you enjoyed your nap. Say hello to Ted K. and see if you can get the sound of typing out of your ears. Because securing the border against the brown hordes has been a Donald-ism for a couple of minutes now.
It’s an issue he’s getting more and more frustrated with, since no one but him seems to care about building the wall. Well him and the contractors who hope they get a shot at putting up the most ‘murcan thing possible.
Unless we build the world’s biggest IHOP.
That’s pretty patriotic.
Bait? Meet switch
The list of things the president’s hoping we forget about keeps getting longer. This is another shot at that. Because so long as we’re all howling about how stupid this idea is, we can forget that he’s started a trade war, is using his office to attack a major American business, and that there’s still some questions about a country that rhymes with Prussia.
