Trumps Irish wall

This just slays me. Especially the part where trump sites climate change and sea level rise as the reason for needing this wall built.

Green light for Trump's Irish wall

I figured no one would comment on this. I mean... it’s not like Trump would lie... nope.

Many conservatives applaud tax cheats like Trump because they hate taxes.

I prefer that Trump spends the money he earns rather than the federal government spending it. The federal government's pork spending is way larger than Trump's "cheating." The federal government "cheats" us way more than Trump does. Most Progressives applaud government appropriation and waste of private wealth.

I see so illegal behavior is justified if it fits your viewpoint. Nice. We can have some fun with this.

I've never seen a progressive applaud waste of price wealth either by the way.

Trump’s ok with illegal or inappropriate behavior, his road to success is paved over those he has bullied, screwed, swindled; including those (guess who) who have paid for his multiple bankruptcy’s. Why he even values those same qualities when he sees them in others; personally Moore would have meant less.

Why would anyone be surprised at this? He shown that even using the word questionable is generous when you discuss his moral character. He used his own Foundation as his personal piggy bank paying fines through it and buying paintings / statues of himself with the foundation's funds.

Why would anyone be surprised about this? So any coastal Sea Wall from the last 6000 years is suspect too?

What Progressives have done to our constitutional legal system is immeasurably more criminal and harmful to classical liberalism and the foundation of how we are governed than anything Trump has supposedly done.

And if that is not enough destruction, twenty trillion in visible debt and hundreds of trillions in unfunded and hidden debt which has threatened the impoverishment of this nation, and which has eviscerated the value of older generations' saving accounts should tickle your myopic fancy.

If that is not enough destruction, there is the fascist marriage of big business and big Progressive government which has diminished the so-called middle class, made it difficult to maintain our once touted class mobility, and, with the help of Progressive social programs, made it easier and more likely that those who are poor or in the lower class shall remain so as government "transfers" have removed the necessity and the motivation to climb the ladder up, and made it more difficult for those who try to do so.

And if that is not enough destruction, there is the Progressive Marxist, relativistic, Post Modern infiltration and domination of the liberal arts in our educational institutions which deconstructs everything to non-entity or persons into a myriad of conflicting identities who posses no meaning other than how they "identify" themselves, regardless of any physical evidence to the contrary.

And if that's not enough destruction, there is a great deal more gathering in the weeds for us to ""have some fun with" as you put it, if you wish.

And if Trump has illegally evaded taxes, the mighty IRS has not yet contacted him about it, as far as we know.

OK, let's break it down for you restless kids in the back;

Erosion has happened wherever the land meets the sea - some big some small
For millennia, Man, err, they used to be identified as males, and females used to be identifying as females, errected barriers to mitigate said erosion where the land meets the sea
The gave it many names but the gist is "Sea Wall"
It happens, sometimes to protect a location / village / buisness / whatever

If the only part you are eye rolling on is "Although Mr Trump has said he is not a great believer in man-made climate change, in the original application he cited global warming and rising seas as a reason for needing the wall."

Yeh he probably lied, he does that, like most politicians. He also lied because he being of no soul will tell the recipients whatever they want to hear

The moment a douche bag politician uses something he campaigned against as false as a way to get what he wants, instantly discredits him for ever being taken serious.
I remember all the alt right morons chanting “flip flopper” about Kerry voting against and then for the war in Iraq has as the main reason he was unfit to be president.

Perhaps we should be a bit more compassionate here. Trump seems to have the attention span of a cricket. It's most likely he simply forgot his position on the issue.

True. I hear that spray tan chemicals effect the memory and sex drive. I’ll cut the Cheeto some slack.
