Sources: Trump will ask Congress, not Mexico, to pay for border wallI read the headline and laughed.
Then I flipped the TV on and over to CNN.
I was not disappointed. Anderson Cooper, Robert Reich, and some other guy were arguing over the impact of having taxpayers, not Mexico, pay for the wall.
Over at the CNN web site, the story somberly said:
The move would break a key campaign promise when Trump repeatedly said he would force Mexico to pay for the construction of the wall along the border, though in October, Trump suggested for the first time that Mexico would reimburse the US for the cost of the wall.Hilarious.
The site had a video of Anderson Cooper announcing, in his best Ted Baxter voice, "American taxpayers will pay for the wall."
Oh it is a gotcha all right.
President Trump got them.
Instead of discussing whether we should build a racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, deplorable wall, CNN is arguing over who is going to pay for it.
As the old joke goes: "What sort of woman do you think I am?"
"We've already determined that. Now we're just haggling over the price."
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
It covers the nomination process only. The general election will be covered in a sequel.
