Cache of drugs and guns shown at Trump's TX photo op were SEIZED AT LEGAL POINTS OF ENTRY.

Trump spent most of the day near the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas, a visit many in Washington see as a precursor to an emergency declaration after talks with congressional leaders imploded the day before.

“Well, we can declare a national emergency. We shouldn’t have to because this is just common sense,” Trump told reporters on the banks of the Rio Grande River, flanked by border agents and piles of plastic-wrapped drugs seized at the frontier.

Parts of Trump’s border tour undercut his claim that the wall is essential to stopping drugs and illegal entries at the border.

A Customs and Border Protections (CBP) agent said a cache of drugs and guns sitting on tables in front of Trump at the station were mostly seized at legal ports of entry, not areas of the border that would be protected by a wall.

1. Fake President with Fake Display

Of course, the illegal items weren’t seized at illegal points of entry. Why is this not surprising?

5. Seems the contextual use of the drugs prop could place it in the

realm of propaganda. Maybe continued propaganda is more relevant.

10. I've often thought that everything and everyone is a prop for him..,

Kids, wives, whatever. Sadly, he seems to suck the people in his orbit into the same mindset.
