Donald Trump doesn't like wall people.

Spanky doesn't give two sh*ts about Puerto Rico, and most of his supporters don't even consider Puerto Ricans to be Americans - Trumpers think they're the people the wall is supposed to protect against. So yeah, I can see this happening.

Not as much a vanity project as Trump seeing it as the only way to get his brown-skin-hating base to support him in 2020. Without the mouth breathers, he's toast.

I wouldn't be shocked if he got the wall built and stamped his name or likeness all over it though.

They wouldn't need to worry about installing urinals at the visitor centers.  What kind of material can they build it out of that isn't damaged by uric acid?

My time dealing with federal budgets made it clear you can't spend money Congress gave you for one thing on some other thing just because you want to. This will fail in court quickly.

On top of that, is Trump fast tracking the turning of Texas away from the Republican Party? Has he found a way to lose the 2020 election by alienating the largest batch of safe republican electoral votes?

The death toll for Hurricane Maria is about fifty headstones short of the death toll from the 9/11 attack.

Tяumputin threw paper towels at them and went back home to jack off to his wall fantasy.

Where's Puerto Rico's $5 billion?

Remember that when Mueller is leading his fat orange arse up the gallows.

See, that's one of the biggest problems when it comes to pointing out the f*cked up sh*t that Spanky does. All of the stuff that the left says about him, the right used to say about Obama. Thing is, the right knew it was absolute horse sh*t, that Obama wasn't behaving tyrannical, that he was within his limits on executive authority, and that he really did care about other people. Now when the left is critical of Trump, the right chooses to believe that they're blowing as much smoke about Trump as they themselves used to blow regarding Obama. They're not going to listen to reason, because they figure its the same BS they themselves used to pull.

It's not like the Houston region is all that big, or largely votes Republican. I'm sure this won't bite him in his giant ass in any way.
I have a sneaking suspicion that they've locked Mulvaney in a closet, and Miller is the only voice he's allowed to hear.

It's a general fund that's supposed to cover several projects among all three hurricane disaster areas. He'll just pull the money for the Puerto Rico stuff (and leave Texas's stuff in there), then complain that the Democrats don't want Puerto Rico's infrastructure fixed because they won't pass the funds for it.

Yeah, i just couldn't resist the opportunity to be a sarcastic ass. If he does pull this trick and somehow survive, he will have spent every last ounce of political capital he has left ahead of the Mueller report release.
 
2019-01-10 11:21:20 PM  
So time to call my congresscritters and DEMAND that they introduce a bill to stop Trump from diverting these funds, eh? I can do that.

The Trump administration is actively examining using billions of dollars in unspent Defense Department disaster recovery and military construction funds

Wait, why is it unspent? Haven't the last two years been the worst years ever with regards to natural disasters? Three hurricanes of the century, raging forest fires, biblical levels of flooding.... and you're telling me they still have funds left? Dear god, WHY!?

That won't stay hidden for long. Trump's idea of "classified" is "what I don't want the public to know, and don't want Congress to question".

No, the fact that so many people think building that stupid wall is "securing the border" is what's amusing.
