Think you have Trump painted into a corner? Not so fast…
The libs thought they smelled blood in the water. They were practically dancing with glee.
Mocking his plan to have Mexico pay for that ‘big beautiful wall’, they gloated:
But like most of his campaign promises, it turns out that Trump was lying through his teeth. CNN reports that Donald Trump’s transition team is planning to use the federal appropriations process to pay for the wall.
The Trump team argues it will have the authority through a Bush-era 2006 law to build the wall, lawmakers say, but it lacks the money to do so. Transition officials have told House GOP leaders in private meetings they’d like to pay for the wall in the funding bill, a senior House GOP source said.
…An MIT study projects that Trump’s border wall will cost somewhere around $38 billion dollars. Hypocrite Republicans complain endlessly about how we can’t afford to spend money taking care of our retired seniors and impoverished children, but are freely willing to blow billions of dollars on a useless wall that will ultimately do little to stop immigration into the United States.
It will be interesting to see how the deplorables react to this little piece of news. —Occupy Democrats
That was pretty judge-y for the ‘it’s-wrong-to-judge-people-party’. So, they caught Trump in a trap? Right?
Trump was not without an answer to this charge.
The dishonest media does not report that any money spent on building the Great Wall (for sake of speed), will be paid back by Mexico later!

So… let’s recap…
The people who stood behind the ‘we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it’ legislation and support the President who racked up more debt than the 43 Presidents before him… (combined!) … have a problem with forging ahead with the wall, and settling up with Mexico later.
And they DARE to utter the term ‘hypocrite’.
They are nothing but clowns.
