President Trump has a tendency to hyperfixate on things like some sort of Dr. Hannibal Lecter come to life.
He really, really can’t get over the idea of the border wall as something worth his time and that of the nation. He has insisted for what’s probably going on years that a wall along the border between the United States and Mexico would solve basically all the nation’s problems.
He has never paid any mind to the fact that there remains no evidence whatsoever to back up his claims about the efficacy and necessity of a border wall. Neither has he ever paid any mind to the fact that blaming an entire group of people — Mexican immigrants — for the problems facing the United States is prone to send the fabric of American society up in flames, similar to what took place inside Nazi Germany as Hitler gradually vilified the Jews and other minorities.
On that note, Trump wrote the following on Twitter on Monday morning:
‘The Wall is a very important tool in stopping drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth (and many others)! If the wall is not built, which it will be, the drug situation will NEVER be fixed the way it should be!
Twitter, as always, was quick to counter Trump’s assertions.
Actor Cameron Moulene delivered a detailed, epic clapback to Trump’s latest tweetstorm, writing:
‘Dude, learn syntax. Once you get that down we’ll delve into the historical success rates of border walls; primarily, how they tandem both a harmful message and inefficient purpose. Then we start a formal education on the harmful sociological effects of rhetoric that corrals entire groups as ‘dangerous,’ followed by allocating responsibility transparently — which will lead us to our main focus this semester: Truth, something you and your cabinet seem perfectly comfortable redefining to support whatever narrative you’re peddling that day.’
He’s on point.
