‘Fox & Friends’ asks, ‘Has the wall almost become symbolic?’
The MAGA crowd was having a rough morning Thursday. While Ann Coulter was quick to jump ship after realizing she couldn’t pretend like the commander-in-chief has command of, well, anything any longer, the smiling turds at “Fox and Friends” didn’t have things so easy, knowing that whatever they said would eventually be seen by President Fart Noise himself. (It is his favorite show, after all).
To help explain away Trump’s obvious defeat, bitch Jason Chaffetz stopped by to reassure viewers the president hadn’t actually been bested by Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi — how could he when he doesn’t need them for anything, because that wall he’s been promising to build was actually there already all along.
“The president doesn’t need congressional authority to build the wall, it’s already there,” said Chaffetz. “He needs funding so it’s solely in the camp of the United States Congress to fund what the president promised he would do. He’ll build it but Congress has to step up and actually fund it.”
Trump doesn’t need Congress to build the wall, but he needs Congress in order to… build the wall? That seems fairly… existential, Chaffetz. Maybe Steve Doocy can ask some follow up questions and make things a little more clear for us? (Lololololol.)
“Congressman, has the wall almost become symbolic?” asked Doocy. “I know the president ran on it. It was a mantra. But at the same time, border crossings have gone down dramatically and you were talking about how the wall exists in certain forms and there’s money to go to it, has to come from Congress, but do you think we’re going to get to the point where maybe they won’t build the wall?”
Ah, I get it. Trump didn’t lie about building a wall he was going to make Mexico pay for — it’s that the wall was metaphorical. It already exists, you see, not on the southern border, but in our hearts and minds. All you need to do is believe in the wall, and the wall is real. Wow. What a leader.
