The Department of Homeland Security Is Getting Roasted for Its Cringeworthy Grammar in a Memo About Trump's Border Wall

The Department of Homeland Security Is Getting Roasted for Its Cringeworthy Grammar in a Memo About Trump's Border Wall

Whut?

With growing skepticism as to whether or not President Donald Trump's long-sought wall at the United States' Southern border will receive funding in the next budget plan, the Department of Homeland Security released a document called Walls Work. The report documents portions of Southern border walls that have been completed or are expected to be completed before the end of next year.

In his fight for funding, Trump has increasingly proclaimed that "tremendous" portions of the wall have already been built (though these are technically fences, many of which have been around since the 1990s).


The report from the Department of Homeland Security—headed by Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen—was seeking to bolster his claims with its report, however people began to notice that something was off about the statement.

The statement doesn't use article adjectives multiple times. While the DHS may have thought it was being efficient, the impact backfired, with the statement sounding like it was written by a caveman:

"DHS is committed to building wall and building wall quickly. We are not replacing short, outdated and ineffective wall with similar wall...Prior to President Trump taking office, we have never built wall that high."

It wasn't long before Twitter began doing its work.

It wasn't long before users began speculating what happened.

A few even teased that Russian treachery was afoot.

The report boasts construction of miles of bollard walls (walls constructed of large steel girders with spaces between each), however the bollards don't fit the descriptions of walls described by the President nor do any resemble the prototypes touted by Trump earlier this year.

The memo's content is taking about as much flack as its composition.

It is unclear if Donald Trump will follow through with his claim that he'd be "proud" to shut down the government for border security, which he says requires a border wall. The American people will know at midnight on December 21 whether or not the government will be fully operational.

Kamala Harris Brought In More Money In Her 'Opening Weekend' Than 'Twisters' Did—And Wow

Twisters, directed by Lee Isaac Chung, is a standalone sequel to 1996's Twister that's received generally positive reviews from critics since its release this past weekend. The movie made $80.5 million over its opening weekend—just shy of what Harris raised in the immediate aftermath since President Joe Biden dropped out of the race and endorsed her to be his successor.
