On Air Force One, Trump Makes His Vision for the Border Wall Transparent

Can Donald Trump really make good on his promise to build a wall along the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexican border to prevent illegal migration? What’s more, can he make Mexico pay for it? Sure, he can build it, but it’s not nearly as simple as he says. (AP Photo/Russell Contreras)

Yeah. This takes a special way of thinking.

While en route to France and a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday evening, President Trump sat with the press pool for around an hour and just schmoozed about policy.


We’re going to assume since he was on Air Force One, and not behind a podium, that this was all unscripted and our president was speaking off-the-cuff. That’s important to note, so you fully grasp that this is the man in control of our nation and its citizens’ well-being.

This is the glorious unveiling of the move from a free republic to a Kakistocracy.

On the subject of the Great Wall of Trump, the president, in full free-form, suggested that the wall would have to be transparent, or at least have portals to see through.

Said Trump:

“One of the things with the wall is, you need transparency,” Trump said. “You have to be able to see through it. In other words, if you can’t see through the wall — so it could be a steel wall with openings, but you have to have openings because you have to see what’s on the other side of the wall.”

Ok. Sure. A wall with windows, right?

We’ve heard stranger ideas. So what is it we need to see on the other side? Why do we care, as long as it stays on the other side of the border?

He had more.

“As horrible as it sounds, when they throw the large sacks of drugs over, and if you have people on the other side of the wall, you don’t see them — they hit you in the head with 60 pounds of stuff? It’s over,” Trump said. “As crazy as that sounds, you need transparency through that wall.”


Go ahead and let that absorb, for a moment.

Let’s not forget that the proposed height of this amazing wall is to be around 30 feet. Even if it was just half that height, for someone to propel a 60 pound sack of anything over a 15 foot wall would require somebody of mind-boggling strength.

Apparently, President Trump has put some thought into it. Not enough thought to think, “fence,” but some thought.

When reporters release these tales, they never include what their reactions were. THAT is what I’m really interested in hearing about!

I’m pretty sure my reaction would have gotten me kicked off the plane, possibly before it even landed.
