Trump Drags Pope Into Argument For Border Wall

Donald Trump on Wednesday idiotically suggested that the proposed border wall cannot be immoral since there are walls surrounding the Vatican, which is obviously a low-IQ argument based on false equivalency.

“When they say the wall’s immoral, well then you got to do something about the Vatican, because the Vatican has the biggest wall of them all,” Donald Trump said during remarks in a meeting with Cabinet members.

Donald Trump also claimed walls “work 100 percent.” He had no evidence for this claim because it isn’t true–walls can be climbed over, especially if you have a ladder.

“Look at all of the countries that have walls, and they work 100 percent,” Trump said. “It’s never going to change. A wall is a wall.

Trump’s remarks came as he continues demanding that Congress give $5 billion in funding towards a wall to be built on the southern border.

The partial shutdown of the federal government has been happening since Dec. 22, with Congress members at odds over Donald Trump’s demand for an insane amount of border wall funding. There were unfortunately no indications in Wednesday that the shutdown will end soon.

Donald Trump said in his remarks that the shutdown might last for “a long time,” and Senate Majority Leader and sociopathic turtle-man Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) suggested on Wednesday that the shutdown may continue for “weeks.”

“We’re hopeful that somehow in the coming days and weeks we’ll be able to reach an agreement,” said McTurtle, adding that he did not think “any particular progress” had been made on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the former Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, now the Speaker, reiterated that the Democrats will not agree to fund a wall. Standard reasoning is that it is primitive, amoral, and will be ineffective.

“Nothing for the wall,” Pelosi told NBC’s “Today” during an interview that will air on Thursday.
