Wall

A couple of years ago, if you had asked me whether a completely impractical political assertion could withstand public exposure to humor I would have said no.  But Donald Trump has proven me wrong.  I’m talking about his Mexican wall.  Here is John Oliver to expose it in all its absurdity.  Now we just have to sit back and watch his poll numbers fall. Right?  Right?  Please, tell me I’m right.

    I watched the entire clip. Lotsa fun with a point. Then again, I’m one of the few people in America who has said all along and continues to say that The Donald won’t be nominated – let alone elected.

    The reason humour doesn’t work on The Donald’s pronouncements, is that he’s already the punch line to so many bad jokes. Such as…
    Q. Why did the chicken cross the road?
    A. Donald Trump.

    Its not just funny its frankly one of the best take downs of the idea I have seen. I wonder what would have happened if Jeb! would have went there just like this in one of those early debates? The insanity of the whole idea is obvious to anyone willing to listen. In my view Trump is like Frankenstein’s Monster in the old movie, he’s thrown the little girl in the lake and he’s stomping his way blindly toward civilization. He’s going to go up in flames, its just a question of how much more damage he will do before that. Here’s hoping the fire is contained to Cleveland.

    John O. is so funny and accurate. Always enjoyable to watch.

    You know what, we sent several pairs of astronauts to the moon and back for what DT’s wall would cost.

    What’s so disheartening is that Trump’s ridiculous wall has garnered him so much support.

      Amazing, isn’t it? I sure can’t explain it. But I know what will happen to the wall idea if Trump should actually get elected. Congress will decline to fund it and he’ll blame them. They will instead spend it on gold-plated weapons systems designed to fight the Cold War. Kinda makes me want to go back to bed and pull the covers over my head.

    OK. Finally. Yup. He nailed it. I am hoping that NY will be Drumpf’s swan song. Please, Lord, let it be so!
