OMG, Trump heard there are rivers and mountains on the border.  Who would have thought that there would be rivers and mountains?

KA Conway is like that person you meet at a party who’s had one too many drinks, and won’t stop pontificating, and won’t let anyone get a word in edgewise.  You know, you automatically start edging back, but she’s not picking up on any hints.  And the next occasion you espy her, you turn and walk in the opposite direction quickly.

First the dotard promised to build a wall.  Then he promised Mexico would pay for it.  About six months ago he said Americans will pay for the wall if he has to shut down the government to get money for it.  Now he conferred with experts who informed him that rivers and mountains exist along the southern border and make building the wall unfeasible.

The best way out of this is for Trump to photoshop a wall on portions of the border and declare the wall finished.  His supporters will believe it because they unquestioningly believe everything he says.  They have to believe, otherwise they must admit their choice for president is a reflection of their own stupidity.  And when the press finds out the wall was not built, Trump will simply shout, “Obama!” as a distraction and his supporters will forget he said it was built.

Another way out of it is for Trump to state his claim to have Mexico build a wall is fake news.  He never said that, but Hillary did!  His supporters will believe him.

He may also claim Congressional Democrats are blocking funding for the wall and delaying a vote, although Republicans control both houses of Congress, because Congress is run by the minority party.

This is well said and entirely plausible.  Witnessing people doubling down on the lies in order to avoid admitting that voting for the cretin was stupid is becoming more disturbing than the lies in the first place.  We’ve reached the point where it’s safe to say the man is a compulsive and manipulative liar and bigot.  Defending lying and bigotry is to abandon any and all honourable territory.

What kind of a “land developer” hasn’t a clue of the land they’re developing?  Neither an architect, engineer, designer nor tradesperson.  Just an in-the-way middleman interfering in real estate deals with his greedy little paws.  Without consideration of the ramifications of his actions or care for the devastation it creates.

This careless disregard for consequences governs his approach to everything.  Like oil drilling, pipelines and mining.  Once these resources are depleted there’s no getting them back.  It brings the second amendment into focus in its literal and original intent.  As a means of protecting the things that are threatened by those in positions of power.

What can we expect of a man who spends his life on golf courses and 5th Avenue skyscrapers?  He doesn’t know the country he governs.

I guess he’s consistent in at least one way:

Build the wall = ban people from s***hole countries

He is an embarrassment to those of us who have frequented those dwellings.

Amusing (and simultaneously horrifying) article from Associated Press on how Trump’s recent slur against African countries, et al, was translated around the world.
