We’ve been hearing for over a year now about Donald Trump’s famous wall. The one he is going to build between the U.S. and Mexico. And, he claims, Mexico will pay for it. If you’ve imagined what a wall like that might look like, you don’t have to wonder anymore.
A miniature wall, built around Trump’s star of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, appeared on Tuesday. It is said to be the work of street artist, Plastic Jesus. He’s the one who put up the “No Trump Anywhere” parking signs in Los Angeles (his base), Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C. and Miami. Since the artist was one of the first to share pictures of the wall on Instagram, it’s a good bet that he is the mastermind behind the installation. He also posted to Facebook:
The sign is made of concrete, topped with razor wire and displays “Keep Out” signs all around. The American flag flies proudly in all four corners. I can see how the concrete wall was done but how on earth did he manage the mini razor wire? Hats off, Sir.
The star is in front of a Forever 21 store, which conjures its own bit of irony. Trump tries to look like he’s not all of his 70+ years with hair magic and spray tans. He probably was thrilled to the end of his tiny fingers when he saw where his star was located.
The “real” wall, of course, would be prohibitively expensive and Mexico would most assuredly not pay for it. The existing wall — all 670 miles of it — cost us $2.4 billion back in 2006. That was only about 1/3 of the distance Trump promises. That 2,000-mile wall would cost roughly $7.2 billion. And that’s not accounting for inflation. That’s just one of the lies Trump tells that never seems to find purchase in the stony ground that is the minds of his followers. And he calls Hillary crooked!
