Doesn't mean I have to keep the tv on after Trump speaks also.

My email to idiot chuck

Excuse me for being blunt. Make America and safe fund the border wall. YOU and your fellow democrats are fully responsible for the shut down.

By you NOT supporting a border wall, you are further encouraging and promoting human trafficking, more drug deaths and more stolen taxpayer money spent on CRIMINALS who came here illegally.

Some of the best pieces of the speech:

America call congress and tell them to do their job.

”politicians build walls and fences and gates around their homes not because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside”

Nancy and Chuck - well they talked about the same crap that Democrats always talk about: emotions and a humanitarian crisis in other countries, instead of our own citizens.

Nancy appears to have stopped by the botox vendor on her way to the podium.

And the Chuckster...well, what can you say. Hair plugs and a lazy eye.

What a freak show. What a shit show.

We're ****ed.

I think we need to build a wall around California and New York instead of one along the Mexico border

Serious Question -

If Trump wanted this wall so bad...why didn't he do it when the GOP had control of all branches?

Serious answer: He probably didn't have the votes to just ram it through as a single item bill. Flake, Collins, Murkowski, Sasse, McCain......plenty of no votes to sink it in the Senate, even with the nuclear option. That's on the never Trumper Republicans, who really don't want a wall anyway. Maybe he didn't want to try and fail.

So by doing it this way he can blame the left?

The wall is actually directed in EO 13767. The wall is already on the books; all the current activity is about how to pay for it. I'm not sure he could get a majority decision with any party make-up to agree where the 8 - 20 $B of discretionary funding would come from, as they surely don't want to raise taxes to fund it.
