President Trump Tours Border Wall Prototypes

In other sad news, President Trump traveled to California to inspect his border wall prototypes yesterday:

“President Donald Trump eagerly inspected eight towering prototypes for his long-sought wall at the U.S.-Mexico border and accused California of putting “the entire nation at risk” by refusing to take tough action against illegal immigration.

Mr. Trump, making his first trip to California as president, said Tuesday he preferred a fully concrete wall because it was the hardest to climb, but he noted that it needed to be see-through. He said the first thing he noticed on the drive to the border was the patched-up holes in part of the existing fence.

“We have a lousy wall over here now, but at least it stops 90, 95 percent,” Mr. Trump said. “When we put up the real wall, we’re going to stop 99 percent. Maybe more than that.” …”

It would be nice if the Republican Congress appropriated the money to build the border wall. Unfortunately, this will likely continue to be just another GOP election year gimmick like ending abortion for the voters who aren’t interested in the real agenda of tax cuts, deregulation and military spending.

  1. They make solar charged electric fences that will stop a bull in its tracks. Take a peek at solar electric fence chargers in Tractor Supply or similar stores, Inexpensive, but, highly effective,

  2. The orange NYC liar with the commie jew daughter just
    isn’t believed any more. A ‘pro gun’ democrap just tied
    in a PA election… while trump says take the guns first….

  3. Trumpenthal’s “prototype wall”

    is already stopping huge numbers of prototype beaners

    from coming to’Murka. (distant laughter)

    in related news, Trumpenthal is deporting illegal beaners already here

    at HALF the rate that Obama did.

  4. I agree, an election year gimmick. A prototype isn’t a wall. What need of a wall when Mexicans are on both sides of it? Will patriotards ever get wise?

  5. The S.A.’s have developed a sense of humour about the ‘human tsunami’ coming over the border fence with Zimbabwe. For the sake of morale, we should be following DJ Darren ‘Whackhead’ Simpson of S.A. radio (94.7 Highveld stereo) and his unique take. In this sketch Darren pretends to be a Zimbabwean fence jumper ‘Lovemore Sibanda’ calling an S.A. border official. This is seriously funny.

  6. The trouble with walls is that something designed to keep something out also serve to keep something in. There’s a reason that a fortress also looks like a prison. Think about that.

    That, plus you can always tunnel under a wall, something that both Gaza Palestinians and Mexican smugglers know full well. (They’ve become quite skilled at it, easily world class tunnelers.)

    A better and cheaper solution, an immediate solution, simply would be to have a pile of sandbags along the border every half mile or so, manned by a group of soldiers (transferred from the Middle East) on a two week rotation. Nothing too comfortable mind you; we’re essentially talking camping here. Cheap – cheaper than a wall anyway -flexible and effective, you’re using existing resources and command structures to provide an immediate solution to the problem of a presently too-porous Southern Border.

    Plus, when the problem ultimately goes away – and it will – you’re not left with some mega-structure that future generations will left scratching their heads and wondering at.

    Just a thought.
