On Saturday, Palmer Report told you about a new report from the Washington Post that reveals more on Donald Trump’s failure to deliver on his key campaign promise of building a wall on the southern border. The new twist is that the so-called wall has proven not to be the “virtually impenetrable” structure Trump has repeatedly claimed it would be. According to the report, Mexican gangs have been using inexpensive, easy-to-find cordless tools to cut through and smuggle what they like into the United States. So, when Trump recently told attendees at a Pittsburgh energy conference that “we’re building a wall in Colorado… a big one that really works,” Trump’s error in geography was not the most idiotic part of that sentence.
As damning and humiliating as the Washington Post report was, Trump managed to figure out a way to make things even worse for himself. Trump’s new position about his beloved wall, apparently, is that he totally expected people to cut through the wall successfully — but that’s fine because you can simply fix it later. Here are the dotard’s exact words, which he told reporters at the White House yesterday:
“We have a very powerful wall. But no matter how powerful, you can cut through anything, in all fairness. But we have a lot of people watching. You know cutting—cutting is one thing, but it’s easily fixed. One of the reasons we did it the way we did it, it’s very easily fixed. You put the chunk back in.”
Trump has once again proven himself to be a pitiful salesman and a shameful liar. Trump’s base has already had to swallow (or ignore) the fact that Mexico isn’t paying for the wall, that the wall is really a fence, and that it’s actually only replacing what was there. Now, two more things are clear: Trump’s racist, xenophobic boondoggle is far from the all-mighty fortress that he promised, and Trump has given up pretending that he cares. If Trump were smart, he would resign right now before the walls continue closing in on him.
