Why Trump's Wall Won't Work


Well, it’s official: Donald Trump has signed an executive order to build the border wall. This should surprise no one. He ran on the campaign promise of building the wall. It’s literally his Obamacare. Of course he was going to get it built one way or another. Anyone who doubted that he would was severely underestimating him—and if the election taught us anything, it's that we should never underestimate him. Ever!

While this news may upset many, it doesn’t really upset me. Of course the wall is going to be a huge waste of taxpayer money, but that’s the least of my concerns from this presidential administration. Somehow I’m a little bit more worried that our current president is floating around crazy ideas like placing Chicago under martial law or ramping up our nuclear arsenal because—OH SWEET CELESTIA THE DOOMSDAY CLOCK HAS BEEN MOVED CLOSER TO MIDNIGHT BECAUSE WE’VE LITERALLY ELECTED GREG STILLSON FROM “DEAD ZONE” WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST IS UPON US THE END IS NEIGH!!!!!

Ahem.

Anyway, to any of my followers out there who want to find joy in the fact that Trump is moving forward with getting the wall built, don’t! Trump's Great Wall will be costly and useless and Mexico won't pay for it.

If you want to learn more about why that is, by all means watch this great video by Adam Ruins Everything, which succinctly explains why Trump's Great Wall will be costly and useless and Mexico won't pay for it:
