    Default Whatever Happened To That GoFundMe For The Wall Of Shame? Fell A Bit Short?

    Did Mexico contribute to it?

    LOL

    PoliTalker anti-troll thread thief disclaimer: If this thread is stolen, plagiarized, will the thief have the nerve to use the entire OP, word for word? Including this disclaimer? If you want my take on it, you'll have to post to this original PoliTalker thread. I refuse to be an enabler for online bullies, so I won't post to a stolen thread. I won't even read it. If you don't see me, PoliTalker, posting in this thread check the author. This might be a hijacked thread, not the original.

    What is it up to? Did they even get the first billion? Big talkers.

    If only there were more zeros.

    (in the figure, I mean)

    Hey.

    At least they got enough to put a wall around the White House. Maybe 3 feet high. (If you measure that in President's hands it would seem much larger than it is. Warning: Objects in the mirror may appear to be further away than they actually are.)

    Of course, we need to save a reserve to 'tear down this wall, Mr President.'

    Funny. Trump stole Reagan's campaign slogan. But President Reagan is famous for tearing down a wall while President Trump thinks more walls need to be built.

    I think there is a wall between Trump and the Truth.

    It is at $19.5M and climbing https://www.gofundme.com/TheTrumpWall

    Far more than the dems raised for the imaginary future challenger to Susan Collins, and way more than the go fund me to buy ladders so immigrants can climb over the wall illegally

    You can respond, I don’t mind at all, it’s what this forum is all about.

    Have you never heard of a rhetorical question?

    Let's see, that will pay for the plans, the MARKETING company to try and sell it to the American people and maybe a couple gold plaques at either end--should it EVER be completed...

    Still less than some board games out there. Face it, you only THINK the wall is a popular idea.

    Not my money so I really don't care what happens to it. They could use it to run a candidate against Pelosi or to hang a really nice portrait of El Hefa De Donald facing south and wouldn't bother me one way or the other.

    They are Trying ANYTHING NOW: Fox News proposes Labelling the wall "infrastructure" to win democratic support.

    https://www.mediamatters.org/video/2...ocratic/222434

    DAVID ASMAN (FOX BUSINESS HOST): One thing that we thought Trump and Democrats could compromise on is infrastructure. If this could be put in the realm of "infrastructure," as opposed to the realm of "border security," it might work.

    [CROSSTALK]

    MELISSA FRANCIS (CO-HOST): Oh, that's a great idea.

    HARRIS FAULKNER (CO-HOST): That's a good idea.

    ...

    FAULKNER: So, why is it that we can come with ideas here among the five of us, yet all of them, 500 plus and the president, are struggling?
    On Wednesday January 16th, 2019 - 57 voted as patriots to uphold sanctions against Vladimir Putin's Russian Oligarchs.
    45 Democrats, 1 Independent, and 11 Republicans, 1 Couldn't be bothered to vote .... Bernie Sanders.
    42 voted as American Traitors.... all of them Republicans

    Remember this on Tuesday November 3rd, 2020

    What happened to it? It's still going strong, and is on track to be the largest GoFundMe campaign of all time. It's raised approximately a million dollars per day on average.

    They sure as hell better have a LEGAL LOCK on that money and Trump can't get hold of it!!! (Remember he was forced to close down his illegal slushfund--TRUMP FOUNDATION).

    The point is, it's CHUMP CHANGE given the subject at hand.

    Their goal is a billion dollars. $19.5M in a few weeks isn't chump change. It is change the chumps not only believe in but support with their purse.
