Oops, he did it again.
Donald Trump set the Left aflame Friday afternoon, with a simple tweet of a simple structure: He submitted a cartoon representation of the country’s “beautiful” upcoming wall.
It wasn’t the first time the President has characterized the wall as such (see here), but it was the first representation of its kind, so far as I know, that he’s revealed to the nation (please correct me otherwise).
A design of our Steel Slat Barrier which is totally effective while at the same time beautiful! pic.twitter.com/sGltXh0cu9

Trump, as you no doubt are aware, is settled in for “a very long shutdown,” despite Chuck Schumer’s insistence that he “abandon the wall.”
In response to the tweet, many on the Left abandoned their minds, lost to the chaos of the outrage machine:

There is nothing remotely beautiful about that wall or any border wall. We cheered when the Berlin Wall came down and now we are supposed to cheer for a wall going up? Nope…

That’s actually unconstitutional. But he doesn’t care about pesky things like laws. #LockHimUp

You’re not getting a wall. Mexico will not pay for it! Thousands of people are not getting paid during Christmas because of your crazy obsession. You had 2 years with full control but still couldn’t get it approved by your own damn people @GOP. LET IT GO! #BuildTheWall #MAGA pic.twitter.com/RLNHPZF3BD

What do you think of Trump’s proposed image of a border fence?
