You probably recall when Donald Trump tweeted an image of his proposed border wall / fence / collection of poles a few weeks back that looked like it had been created by a two year old with finger paint. Trump has apparently decided that the best way to make people forget about that debacle is to post a new and even more embarrassing picture of his imaginary wall, so that’s what he did today. It didn’t go well.
Donald Trump posted this tweet today: “The Fake News Media keeps saying we haven’t built any NEW WALL. Below is a section just completed on the Border. Anti-climbing feature included. Very high, strong and beautiful! Also, many miles already renovated and in service!” Okay, fine so be it – except he included this image of his supposed wall:
Um, no. First, as so many respondents pointed out, that’s not a wall. Donald Trump literally announced that a section of his “wall” had been built, and then he tried to prove it by posting an image of some metal poles instead. We tried running a Google reverse image search to try to track down where Trump got this image from, and Google returned the following result: “Best guess for this image: Fake news.” No, really, try it for yourself.
