Trump compares illegal border-crossers to 'professional mountain climbers

Source: The HILL



.
President Trump said during a visit to San Diego on Tuesday that he needs his proposed border wall with Mexico to be a tough physical obstacle, as those seeking to enter the U.S. illegally are "incredible climbers."

"Getting over the top is easy. These are like professional mountain climbers, they're incredible climbers. They can't climb some of these walls," Trump told reporters during a tour of border wall prototypes.

Trump viewed eight such prototypes during his California visit and noted that a wall with "see-through capability" would be beneficial in combating cartels.

"You have to know what's on the other side of the wall," Trump said. "You could be two feet away from a criminal cartel and don't even know they're there. Now we have equipment to take care of that, X-ray equipment, etc

1. Did he also say:

"...they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’ve been hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert."

That was Peter King describing Mexicans coming across the border.

16. TRUMP IS A CHILD!!!

A rich spoiled rotten CHILD who has never had to pay a price for all his fuck-ups!! I just want to see him pay a very severe price so I know there is still Justice out there! It may be very rare & never handed out evenly but just once I want to witness a purely disgustingly POS like TRUMP get pushed off TRUMP TOWER by Lady Justice & get to sit back & watch the fall!

...I hate sounding so mean but this guy, CHILD, is really pure evil!!

3. If there is no wall,

you won't have to worry about what's on the other side of the wall. It could be the tRump criminal cartel.

4. As if he'd know!

Climbing the steps into Air Force One is the most strenuous exercise Cadet Bone Spurs gets on a regular basis.
"Take 10 minutes on a StairMaster, you pudgy bastard!"
In light of today's news, I'd rewrite that script to read "Take 10 minutes on a StairMaster, you fucking moron!"

15. Why must any absurdity that trump utters become a headline?

Anybody else getting tired of that?

Like with any 9 year old, if he didn't get a response he'd sooner or later quit doing it.
