Hey, President Donnie! Do you remember what happens to idiot contractors who send bills expecting to be paid?

Wait, does Mexico write stuff down and remember things? Because that may interfere with the President's strategy on this one.
 
2017-08-28 08:18:48 PM  
Not paying his contractors once again.

We underestimate exactly how insane he will get demanding his monument to himself be built.

Congress will have to override vetoes, I think.  Which may force Ds and Rs to work together.  So he might unite the nation - against him - unwittingly.

How does it work when the day finally comes and every person except the secret service decides the epic beat down on general principalsis due?
I bet they all just go out for a pizza and come back later.
Because the is no set script with this monkey feathered asshole. No rules. He just smears his own feces on a legal pad and then commits it to memory before speaking.
 
2017-08-28 09:44:13 PM  
That's okay, just the liberals will have to pay those taxes.
 
2017-08-28 09:46:31 PM  
That's OK.  Because Presient Nieto has already said that he'll takes Trump's approach to paying that bill, so it all evens out in the end.

OMG Trumpers are just so stupid. The lower side of the intelligence bell curve isn't a curve with these folks. It's double black diamond ski slope from Hell.

I see my friends engage them on Facebook sometimes and I wonder why they bother. Their position is one of visceral emotion, and thus immune to facts and logic. As they say, you can't reason someone out of an idea they didn't reason themselves into.

Mexico: "Can we help you with that flood?"

Trump: "Eventually Mexico will pay for the wall!"

Pointless playing "You said ..." with Trump; he just shrugs it off, and base loves it.

What need to be saying is, "If we have got a spare $20 billion, is a wall the best use of that money?"

They do, but it's in some weird moon language. Like some clever indecipherable code.

Next Week Trump:  "If Mexico doesn't pay for THE WALL, I'm going to shut down the American government."
 
2017-08-28 11:34:28 PM  
Maybe pay for it with a fee on every pound of coal from our busy mines?
 
2017-08-28 11:34:46 PM  
They absolutely will, through tariffs. The cost of those tariffs will be passed on to the American consumer, but those are just symantics. What matters is that Mexico will write a check. Doesn't matter that the American people will give Mexico the money for that check before they write it....

Trumpers are goddamned idiots.
 
2017-08-28 11:34:51 PM  
Just wait until the GOP passes the wall conscription law and the whole thing gets built with slave labor. That'll really keep the costs down.
 
2017-08-28 11:35:29 PM  

Grand_Moff_Joseph: You played yourselves, Trumpers.


But none of them care. They just don't. I've read all the articles and theories about Trump's supporters, and I couldn't tell you why they still follow him. But what makes me sad is whatever their motivation, it's strong enough that the Trumpers would rather keep him in power than to really make this a great country. Their hate of minorities/liberals/anyone different from them just blinds them.

I am still stunned because I assumed Obama's election was a signal that America had turned a corner for the better. Little did I realize, we turned a corner for the worse.
 
2017-08-28 11:36:33 PM  
I probably shouldn't waste time on this but I have a fascination for imagining how all these Trump voters would act if any Democratic president pulled stunts like this one.

You would be talking armed insurrection at a minimum.

The important thing is not who pays for the wall but that it's built.

Can you just imagine how buttthurt most Trumpers would be if Justin Trudeau said Canada needed to build a wall on its border with the US, and the US was going to pay for it?
 
2017-08-28 11:44:09 PM  

Grand_Moff_Joseph: You played yourselves, Trumpers.

I'm actually at my desk, laughing. Trumpers aren't going to figure it out until they're actually broke, actually unemployed, and actually mocked by the very people they thought that they were "fighting."

Chuck87: The important thing is not who pays for the wall but that it's built.


...by who, exactly? That's one of the fun parts, as well - Congress is never going to get funding passed for it. That's why Trump's so goddamned screwed on this one. He can't get anyone to pay for it - Americans will be up in arms if they're told that they're going to shell out billions for something that Trump promised them would be paid for by Mexico, and Trump can't figure out how to get Mexico to pay for it because Trump isn't a king and Mexico's quite happy to point and laugh at that farking buffoon.

Hopefully the contractors and construction workers will do the right thing and refuse to take on this project.

The thing is, they actually believe the wall will provide untold economic benefits by preventing The Meskins from coming here and taking Our Jobs.

skinink: I am still stunned because I assumed Obama's election was a signal that America had turned a corner for the better. Little did I realize, we turned a corner for the worse.


I am thinking there are certain ways of thought that are going through their final death throes, and these people are lashing out in order to try to maintain relevance (in their own mind).

Not all conservative ideals are going to die, but a few are going to be gone within a generation or two, and it pisses some people off. I mean, marijuana still makes some people angry, because the danged negroids had the audacity to play jazz back when they were kids. At least Jeff Sessions may be the last AG to think that way. ... hopefully.
 
2017-08-29 01:54:57 AM  
Well... that was kind of what he said on the campaign trail after people pointed out the flaw in his plan.

Surprisingly Mexico still told him to bugger off with that sh*t... and still are.

Imagaine that... eh?

Like anyone believed that orange farking moron would get Mexico to pay for that wall. It's like a bunch of white wolf larpers screaming that Dragonlance would foot the bill for the new edition of third edition Gamma World, if it was written by Dan Abnett from the future, but only if Dan Abnett became a nazi satanist that liked to eat wyvern cock.

This is seriously the most sane and rational metaphor available for that farking wall.

Okay... so Farkers don't remember that whole kerfuffle from the election campaign?

1) Captain Awesome Daddy proclaims a wall will be built

2) People point out that would cost a buttload of money

3) MEXICO WILL PAY FOR TEH WALL!!!

4) Mexico... Nope.

5) WE'LL MAKE THEM PAY BY WITHOLDING AIDE/SUBSIDIES/WHARBLARGHLES!!

6) That... will likely cause catastrophic damage to the economy you intend to "MAKE GREAT AGAIN"

7) HEY LOOK OVER THERE!!!

8) Elected

9) TOTALLY IGNORE ALL THAT SHIZ THAT WAS SAID ECEPT MAYBE WE'LL SAY IT BUT NOT MEAN IT BUT MAYBE WE DO AND WELL FREAKING OILED MACHINE AND WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT PICK UP THAT CAN CITIZEN OMG WHY ARE ALL THE DOGS TELEPATHICALLY EATING MY BRAAAAAIN!!!!

The current estimate to fix the Texas coast after Harvey is 30 billion.  I'm curious to see the impact that might have on the mighty wall project.  Decisions, decisions....
