  1. How can this possibly be real? Trump saw it when he was a kid and said, “one day I wanna be President, and buikd a wall around America to keep out bad hombres?

  2. Media, please self regulate so this doesn’t happen again 60 years from now.

  3. Except that Donald Trump is the President! and if he is a con-man, the Degenerates in Congress are only 10 times worse…
