Trump just left the nation bewildered with a wild, nonsensical Twitter rant about his wall

This morning, President Trump took to Twitter and launched into a wild and barely coherent rant about his promised monument to isolationist xenophobia, the border wall with Mexico.

Striking out at reports from his ousted Chief of Staff, John Kelly, that said the administration had “long ago” ditched the idea of an enormous concrete wall through the harshest part of the Mexican desert, President Trump insisted that the idea had “NEVER” been abandoned but also that the “experts” at the Border Patrol wanted a “see-through” wall before finally declaring that it “made sense to him.”

Like on so many other things, the president is certainly going to be all alone on the “sense” front, because he clearly is attempting to make it so that both things are true at the same time, so unhealthily obsessed with the perception of his “strength” that he is entirely unwilling to accept anything that even resembles a retreat or a concession.

He followed that up with a round of utterly reprehensible xenophobic fearmongering, continuously perpetuating the toxic and demonstrably false narrative that the illegal immigrants, who he smears as being criminals and drug dealers, are “pouring” into the country:

He then finishes the rant with a truly befuddling comparison of a “wall” to the “wheel,” as if the two are in any way comparable other than being material objects that serve wildly different functions.

Walls do not work. Not even the Great Wall of China “worked,” as the wall-building Ming dynasty discovered in 1644 when the Manchu Qing marched through Shanhai Pass and replaced the Ming as the dominant power in China.

He is right on one thing — it is abhorrently immoral for children to be dying in the custody of his cruel and brutish Border Patrol agents, who throw detained immigrants into freezing rooms and steadily heap abuse upon people who have done nothing but try to escape the violence, poverty, and instability that the United States has visited upon their home countries.
