The U.S. Department of Defense is proposing to pay for President Donald Trump's much-debated border wall by shifting funds away from projects that include $1.2 billion for schools, childcare centers and other facilities for military children, according to a list it has provided to lawmakers.
The current Republican position is that we destroy our water and air and then make up for it by denying Americans insurance to pay for the resultant medical issues.
Republican Representative Will Hurd (R-TX) said on Fox Business News Wednesday that building a wall from sea to shining sea is the most expensive and least effective way to do border security.
"Don't let the fake media tell you that I have changed my position on the WALL. It will get built and help stop drugs, human trafficking etc."
"I would say, Senor Trump 'Please please grow up. I mean, now you're President of a great nation...please grow up, be or try to be a real president."
"Well, I'd say very simply that they are going to pay for it. I never said they're gonna pay from the start. I said Mexico will pay for the wall."
In recent days, Trump has embarrassed himself both over China and Mexico, tweeting off-the-cuff ruminations about issues of critical importance
Fox News not only helped create the atmosphere of hate that made Trump possible, but the simplistic thinking that makes the Trump campaign tick like the dystopian clockwork marvel that it is.
For example, yesterday, Tucker Carlson of Fox & Friends, seemingly intent on demonstrating that Elizabeth Hasselbeck, who once compared NFL scandals with Benghazi, need not be missed, equated the fence around the White House with Trump’s Wall.
