Why do I suspect that the paint he chooses is straight out of a certain post USSR nation...you know, like the steel slats that he has been so adamant about...

I expect it'll start flaking off in a year or two and make the whole thing look decrepit, but I suppose our idiot president thinks it looks "powerful" or something.

If it's depressing that they're going for, they should just cover it with whatever orange makeup they use to cover up his raw-chicken-colored face.

What would be the point in painting it African American? Isn't it supposed to stop Mexicans from coming in? Can't they paint it Mexican? And even so wouldn't it be better to paint it Nazi White so you can see all 'those' people better?

Does trump understand the ethnic makeup of a lot of the commercial painting outfits these days??  There might be a bit jump in south-bound remittances.

Maybe there's a big GOP donor who owns a passel of College Pro franchises.

Make all the snarky comments you want.  The problem is, most of you do not understand that the wall was never meant to be 100%, it was meant to be a deterrent.

And I'm sure having to add a 30 foot coat of black paint on a structure during South Texas summers, where it frequently tops 110 degrees, won't cause any of the workers to fall out from heat strokes.

Well, instead of building up an effective response to the present (and future) pandemics, D2S has demonstrated his unswerving dedication to pissing money up against a (mostly virtual) wall...

What a fool.

Trump has reportedly insisted that the design would deter unauthorized immigrants from climbing it.

Let me guess... the idiot asshole thinks it will get too hot to climb...
Do you know how cold it gets in the desert at night? One hour after dawn people will be leaning up against it to warm up before they climb.

And how long does he think the paint will last in the desert?
The Golden Gate bridge is essentially under a constant state of re-paint, or at least it used to be a constant thing. Perhaps they have a better paint now, but it is just over a mile long and needs constant work.

trump isn't just an imbecile, he is farking deranged.

Everything that nefarious little sneak does should be under a spotlighted microscope - everything.

The fact that he's existed in the White House for this long, doing god knows what - I'm sure, lots more than besides what we already know - is a national f*cking disgrace.

If he loses in November his legacy will be economic depression, plague and a partially built monument to racist symbolism.

If he wins it will be our legacy.

The paint isn't going to stick well to that type of steel, it looks like the stuff that is supposed to develop a coating of rust to protect it.  It is just going to be a big ugly peeling mess.
 
2020-05-06 7:08:05 PM  
Some dipshiat probably said how hot black things get in the desert and he's obsessing over his "own great idea" ever since.

Maybe he expects it to be superheated by the Sun. At first it will be hot like asphalt, but his goal is to build it out of steel so it will glow red hot. The black paint is just the necessary step to get it to that level. Boiling point: 100 degrees centigrade.

Also, that way it is invisible when it cools down at night. Even if you shine a flashlight on it, all you will light is blackness. Oh, you see a big black circle at night? Must just be more empty desert! As they try to run across the border as fast as they can, they will headbutt the wall and pass out.

I know I am giving away tactical secrets but I've never seen anyone post in Spanish on the poltab so probably they won't see it. Even if they did see it, someone here would have to be a whistleblower to give Mexico the link to this thread, and they'd be sent to Guantamo.
