Continuing with his obsession with former president Barack Obama, Trump used the fence around his house to justify building a wall on our border with Mexico.
Trump tweeted, “President and Mrs. Obama built/has a ten foot Wall around their D.C. mansion/compound. I agree, totally necessary for their safety and security. The U.S. needs the same thing, slightly larger version!”
It’s almost like Trump has to remind us on a daily basis he’s a liar and an idiot.
There is not a ten-foot wall around the Obama’s home in Washington. There’s not even a wall. It’s a fence. Also, I don’t think their home is a compound and while it’s a large home, it’s probably not something most people would call a mansion unless they struck black gold in Tennessee.
But, why point at Obama’s house to argue for a wall on our border? Oh, yeah. That’s the idiotic part. I’ve also seen Trump sycophants make the same argument on social media, equating fenced yards with a wall on the border.
A yard is not fenced to keep people out. If someone wants in your yard bad enough, a fence isn’t going to stop them. Usually, it’s to keep your dog in. It’s also for privacy. Also, people are not coming to your house seeking asylum or because they’re afraid they’re going to die in their house. No one is taking over your spare bedroom, declaring sanctuary, and hoping you don’t check their papers to see if they’re not actually related to you. It’s just a ridiculous argument made by ridiculous people, like the current president of the United States. God help us.
It was also irresponsible of Trump to tweet about Obama’s home and the security situation. He spent years riling up his base with Obama hatred, accusing him of not being a natural-born citizen, and later falsely claiming he had Trump Tower wiretapped.
Michelle Obama writes in her new book, “I was briefed from time to time by the Secret Service on the more serious threats that came in and understood that there were people capable of being stirred.”
“Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this, I’d never forgive him.”
When this is all said and done, I think there’s going to be a lot of stuff we’ll never forgive Donald Trump for.
Trump does not care about the Obama family’s safety, or anyone else’s for that matter. He might even rejoice if misfortune hits them. I’m shocked he didn’t tweet their address with directions.
Yesterday, I tweeted, “It’s a good thing the Obamas have a ‘wall’ around their house, because as soon as
@realDonaldTrump finds out he just installed a pool, he’s gonna go over and try to pee in it.”
Or at the very least, he’d send a couple of Russian hookers over to do it for him.”
Watch me draw.
