Amidst the national crisis affecting 800,000 federal employees struggling without paychecks during the government shutdown, Donald Trump continued touting his border wall with a blatant lie.
On January 19, 2019, in front of the White House, Trump defended his half-baked wall at the U.S./Mexico border to justify the continued shutdown.
Trump cited the effectiveness of a wall protecting San Antonio, Texas, to prove his point that walls work.
His comment left thousands of people confused because there is no wall in San Antonio, Texas.
The city is also located 150 miles north of the Mexican border, and there would be no need for protecting the city that had been removed from the Mexican border since Texas gained independence from Mexico on April 21,1836.
The master of horror fiction, Stephen King, is an outspoken Donald Trump critic. These days, instead of writing about things that keep us up at night, King takes to Twitter and castigates Donald Trump – whose ideologies and rhetoric actually do terrify most Americans.
At least we hope they do.
