1950s TV Series "Trackdown" Featured a Conman named "Walter Trump" who was pushing for a wall...



What the fresh hell. This is REAL. Filmed in 1958- about a conman who grifts a small town of suckers into building a wall. History not subtle enough for you? GUESS THE GRIFTER'S NAME
(And watch until the end)

4. Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire" mentions his mentor Roy Cohn, who was a McCarthy-ite.

.

Funny that Roy Cohn was deathly afraid of Russia, and his protege is an asset of theirs.

5. I've seen episodes of that show recently on Grit TV.

Robert Culp was the main character, playing a Texas Ranger.

6. Frighteningly prescient

"Trump" telling everyone 'tonight' the world is going to end unless they build that wall tonight?
