Trump keeps telling his supporters that he is already building the border wall that he promised. That is a lie.

When the crowd at President Donald Trump’s South Carolina campaign rally last week started up the now-familiar chant of “Build that wall, build that wall,” he stopped to chastise them.

“It’s not ‘build that wall’ anymore, it’s, ‘Continue building that wall,'” he said. “Because we’re building it.”

He repeated this claim a day later at the White House.

“We’ve started the wall,” Trump said. “Started up in San Diego and other places. It’s under construction with $1.6 billion dollars, but we’re going to ask for an increase in wall spending so we can finish it quicker.”

But that’s not true. While some new fencing has been built along the U.S.-Mexico border in the past year, it’s not the concrete barrier Trump vowed because of the strings Congress put on the cash.

At this point, every single thing that Trump says should be considered a lie, unless proven otherwise by the facts. 

Of course, the problem is that Trump supporters automatically believe everything that Trump says in spite of the facts. 

But we still need to call this shit out over and over again because at some point it will be too much for anybody to continue to ignore. 

At least that’s my theory.

    I no longer have hope that some Trump supporters will wake up to factual reality.

    To do that they have to admit they were wrong.They are simply unable to do that.

    Not until it hits them squarely in the wallet, and it’s coming! 2019 when what he’s done comes home to roost? “I love the poorly educated,” and they cheered. Cry me a river.

    ot
    “Nearly 200 black women leaders have sent a letter to Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), criticizing them for “failure to protect“ Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) from “unwarranted attacks from the Trump administration” and GOP leaders.”
    “Trump has not only falsely claimed that Waters was asking people to harm his supporters but he has on several occasions tweeted racially charged insults against her. She also had to cancel some events because of death threats, after which she defiantly spoke in public and said if people were coming after her they “better shoot straight.”

    “Disparaging or failing to support Congresswoman Waters is an affront to her and Black women across the country and telegraphs a message that the Democratic Party can ill afford: that it does not respect Black women’s leadership and political power and discounts the impact of Black women and millennial voters,” ““We further believe Congresswoman Waters is owed an apology for your public comments insinuating she is “uncivil” and “un- American” for challenging the Trump Administration.”
    “Rep. Pelosi’s office released a statement Wednesday that said Waters “is a valued leader whose passionate call for family reunification should be heard without any threats to her safety.”

    “Donald Trump has sullied the bully pulpit with reckless disregard for the safety of others,” the statement said. “He should stop his attacks on Congresswoman Waters and all Members of Congress, the free press, and all Americans who have the right and the responsibility to speak their minds.”” BLM!

    ” the women wrote in a letter sent Tuesday. “That failure was further compounded by your decision to unfairly deride her as being ‘uncivil‘ and ‘un-American.‘“”“In doing so, we believe this mischaracterizes her call to action for peaceful democratic assembly and the exercise of her constitutional rights to free speech in support of defenseless immigrant children and their families,” ”

    OT: “I snOOkered them,”
    “choose the Democrat — in this case, Rep. Dan Lipinski.

    “This is horrific. An avowed Nazi running for Congress. To the good people of Illinois, you have two reasonable choices: write in another candidate, or vote for the Democrat,” Cruz wrote. “This bigoted fool should receive ZERO votes.”” “The one thing I will say is the person, that guy, Johnson or whatever his name is, should not be on the ballot.”

    In February, the governor said, “There is no room for Neo-Nazis in American politics. I condemn this man in the strongest possible terms.”

    Rauner on Tuesday said the party did what it could to stop Jones. “I called [on] him to get out and he should be out, and we should have somebody run against him,” “State Republicans have also said they will work to draft a write-in candidate for the general election.”

    Call Me American

    “On this Fourth of July, Christiane Amanpour dedicates the show to an issue of our time- immigration. Luis Videgaray, the Mexican Foreign Minister joins the show to discuss the wall, separating children and parents at the border and the role immigration has played in Mexico-U.S. relations. Abdi Nor Iftin shares his extraordinary journey of fleeing his home in search of a better life in America.”

    This lie was debunked months ago, he was using photos of the part of the wall they are repairing to claim they are building it. Maybe that is all we need to satisfy the morons, show them pictures of the current wall and say it is done. They rest of us know trump is lying.
