Update, 9:20pm: Border Patrol now claims the video in question is not from Hurricane Hanna. We’re awaiting further clarification.
Original article: Donald Trump’s promise to build a wall on the Mexican border, and make Mexico pay for it, has become a punchline – and a reminder that he’s the world’s worst negotiator. Trump has been trying to cover for it by taking down old border fence, replacing it with new fence, and calling it a “wall.”
It turns out Trump’s fake wall is even more feeble than his poll numbers. Hurricane Hanna apparently just blew down Trump’s fencing material in Texas:

If the above video won’t load on your device, you can watch it here instead. It’s the latest reminder that everything Trump does is a joke – and not the funny kind.
