A BRIEF HISTORY OF TRUMP'S WALL CRUSADE

_________________________

It all starts with Trump demonizing ethnic groups during the presidential campaign to pump up his political base.

__________________________

Then Donald Trump became president, and moved into full tantrum-meltdown mode when he realized that Robert Mueller's Russian investigation was bringing bad news, and indictments. Trump needed a distraction, and found one.

Unfortunately for Donald Trump, the threat he was trying to construct didn't measure up to what was happening along the border.
Image may contain: text that says 'Just a friendly reminder that illegal border crossing hovers near the bottom of a 40-year low and the only reason Trump keeps pushing for his wall is because it amps up his insane cult of sycophants who hate brown people.'
__________________________

In fact, the border crossing and apprehension numbers are so bad that they're actually going in the opposite direction Trump needs for his rhetoric to align with narrative he wants to create.

Then we have this inconvenient truth: Because Donald Trump doesn't care about lying to his base to rile them up, he decided to lie "bigly" about El Paso, Texas and their wall during his 2019 State of the Union address.

Then, demonstrating he is unfit to be commander-in-chief, Trump confused his temper tantrum with our national security needs.

So, against all evidence, Donald Trump announced that there is a national emergency.

But at least Trump' base is appeased, right?

Unfortunately, for America, we move one step closer to Trump playing national security soldier for his base, and becoming a tin pot dictator for the rest of us ...
