In Alabama, Trump Attempts to Sell the Idea of a Transparent Wall

President Trump must be going for the long con.

He’s already made the deal with Chuck and Nancy that he wouldn’t push for funding for the border wall, and then tried to placate his fan base by saying they would renovate the existing fencing along the border.

When the news broke, his base was not happy. While in Huntsville, Alabama, trying to rally support for Senate candidate Luther Strange on Friday night, Trump suggested that there would be a wall, after all, except it would be like Wonder Woman’s plane, or something – invisible.

“The wall is happening. In fact, you probably saw, you know, we have wall up there now, and re-renovating it already. It’s being made pristine, perfect, just as good as new, though we may go a little higher than that, but that’s okay. And we are building samples of a new wall. You know it has to be a see-through wall,” Trump said.

Notice what he said – we’re building “samples” of a new wall – not an actual wall.

And it’s going to be see-through.

“If you can’t vision through it, you don’t know who’s on the other side. Let’s say we build a pre-cast concrete wall and now we have people on the other side,” he continued, adding “It’s going to stop drugs. It’s going to stop a lot of bad things.”

If you can’t vision through it?

This is a lot of garbled double-talk that goes nowhere, and I don’t think he meant for it to go anywhere. He just needs for his followers to get lost in the word salad and believe he’s actually going to get that wall built.

He’s not.

Watch: Trump Takes Aim At The NFL Anthem Protesters, “Get That Son of a B**** Off the Field!”

Donald Trump got fired up at a rally in Alabama on Friday night, taking aim at NFL players who sit or take a knee during the national anthem.

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners when somebody disrespects our flag to say, “Get that son of a b**** off the field right now. Out. He’s fired. He’s fired!”

Watch:

National Review’s Rich Lowry summed up this type of rhetoric from Trump perfectly on Twitter. “Absolutely classic Trump–take a commonly felt impulse, ratchet it up to 11, watch liberals freak out,” he said.

Indeed. And that’s exactly what happened.

Trump went on to say the game has become too litigious and the referees are ruining the game with the amount of penalties given nowadays. “They’re ruining it,” he said of today’s NFL.

Trump Blasts McCain at Campaign Rally (Video)

Donald Trump is in Alabama tonight stumping for Sen. Luther Strange who is running to keep his U.S. Senate seat to which he was appointed when Jeff Sessions left to become Trump’s attorney general.

After Sen. John McCain (R – Ariz.) likely sunk any chance of Republicans passing a repeal and replace of Obamacare on Friday, Trump was clearly not pleased.

Of McCain’s “no” vote, Trump said it was a “totally unexpected thing, terrible.”

Trump must not be watching and reading the same news as the rest of us because after McCain’s sinking the last (awful) health care bill in July and recent remarks about the latest attempt, known as Graham Cassidy Heller Johnson, McCain’s dissent was not a shock.
