“And we’re going to build a big beautiful wall on the southern border. And who’s going to pay for it?!”, Donald Trump screamed from the podium.

“MEXICO!!!”, screamed his hopeful, yet slightly gullible, supporters.

And so it went for months. Except, in the end, Mexico’s president made sure to publicly say that Trumpy had a much better chance of discovering Mike Pence giving $5 blowjobs in the alley behind Burger King (okay, that may not have been the exact wording). Finally Trump begged him to just go along with it publicly so his anti-Mexican base won’t get angry (I can’t imagine why that didn’t work).

Now here we are, almost a year and a half later, and still no one wants to help him build his wall. *weep* *sniff*

So, what happened?

Well, the same thing that has happened to Trump for decades — He had one of his big, beautiful ideas. He announced his big, beautiful idea. He promised amazing things about his big, beautiful idea. And then finally, we find out that he never had any plan for how to pay for his big, beautiful idea. Not legally anyway.

The problem is, he doesn’t know how to do it without stiffing his contractors, or borrowing money from Fat Vinnie (or Vlad the Potato, or whoever is lending these days). Nope, not this time. This time Trump would actually have to do most of his ‘negotiating’ out in the open, in full view of the public.

And what happened?

President I’m-Taking-My-Ball-And-Going-Home-If-I-Don’t-Get-My-Way has had to resort to political threats and temper tantrums, again.

“Donald Trump has threatened to “shut down” the government unless Congress passes legislation that would fund his proposed wall across the US border with Mexico. In an early morning tweet, he demanded a raft of changes to the country’s immigration laws, adding he wanted “great people” coming into the country.” — Read on www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/trump-border-wall-mexico-shut-down-government-democrats-congress-a8468621.html
