What was the money used for? Was it something actually useful or was it useless like a wall?
I’m talking about the couple hundred million that was recently reallocated from the FEMA disaster budget and the Dem leaders and MSM were demagoguing. It was identical in it’s reallocation to border security. $150 million of Trump’s reallocation went to border detention facilities. None of this money that Trump moved went to the wall. Your talking about the few billion that was reallocated from Defense to pay for wall construction.

Correct, Obama's money went to something useful. Trump's wall money is a waste of money as it's not useful to solving our problem.

Sorry, deuce. You failed the assignment. The time period was the last 2.5 years, which roughly corresponds to trump's time in office. Try it again or I'll put you back in the dunce's corner.
Most of that list continues to oppose Trump and speaks out against him. Arnold, Kasich, Sasse, Amash, Bill Kristol, HuntsMAN! Most of the writers at National Review, in fact, I bet that entire list of academics, authors, journalists, and commentators have ALL spoken out against Trump within your stupid timeline.

What kind of boring fiction are you and Howie trying to peddle? Trump has faced more opposition from the "right" than any president in your lifetime.

Lots of R's who "opposed" Trump in 2016, now lick his shoes and support his every move. Including Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz and several of the Fellas.

Lots of politicians do what is politically expedient. Big revelation there Woodward. Oh, and hypocrite Howie strikes again.



"A ton" is twenty? Well, it is 2, so yeah. A ton will end up being 2.

The GOP has become the Onion

President Obama in May 2011:

"Maybe they'll need a moat," Obama said mockingly to laughter from the crowd. "Maybe they'll want alligators in the moat."

It's refreshing that we have a President who uses his big, beautiful brain to shake things up and think outside the box. Nuking Hurricanes. Gators at the border. Shooting refugees. Genius.

Trump addressed this false claim at his presser with the President of Finland. But you “gulped it up”.

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Trump drops this kind of stuff just to find out leakers.

Great news on the wall. Over 450 miles to be fully built by the end of 2020. Per CPB commissioner- "every mile of wall increases our operational capacity"

There's a decent chance that he's a drunk who would run over your children.

I'd attach nukes to it. They would both deter illegals, and could be fired at approaching hurricanes in the Gulf...

It looks like the Trumpster is going to give up on his wall and declare victory.

It looks like this post didn't age well. 500 miles by the end of 2020. Slat steel walls! Sorry UNN!

Billions wasted on a monument to Trump's ego.

Just be happy they're not using the money as originally intended, to build schools on military bases. We wouldn't want to take care of the kids of the people in the military. That would have been horrible

But no worries. It's easily fixed. You just "put the chunk back in". Brilliant. It's good to know that our big beautiful unpenetrable wall is also easy to repair at further cost.

Trump claimed last night that he instructed the wall be build with steel and re-bar and concrete and be see-through and no one could get through all three. His cult cheered wildly. I guess he was lying. Shocking.

Dude, you’re supposed to suspended after losing a bet. GTFO.

William Barr is still AG and didn’t resign. You have no character if you can’t honor your bets.

The wall was never a stand alone solution and every single hater here knows it & are just being disingenuous. There is no way to completely stop the crime wave of illegals and cartels from entering the US. The idea, from the get-go was always to build the wall as a deterrent, and if penetrated, Border Patrol would be alerted & they could respond to it. Trump's plan was the wall, bolstered by more lighting, electronic monitoring and more Border Patrol agents to respond if/when penetrated. This tweet is quite obviously not proof that the wall isn't working.

I wasn't keeping track of when the six months started. That was your job to let me know, deadbeat.
