Trump’s DHS issues bizarre statement in broken English about border wall

Published

on

The Department of Homeland Security this week issued a bizarre statement written in broken English discussing its purported progress in building President Donald Trump’s border wall.

The statement, which is posted on the DHS’s website, begins with an all-caps declaration that “WE ARE BUILDING THE FIRST NEW BORDER WALL IN A DECADE.”

The statement then goes on to boast about how excited the DHS is about building the wall, while also touting the supposed wall’s height as unprecedented in American history.

“DHS is committed to building wall and building wall quickly,” the statement claims. “We are not replacing short, outdated and ineffective wall with similar wall. Instead, under this President we are building a wall that is 30-feet high.”

DHS then goes on to praise Trump for giving the department the necessary motivation for even attempting such a feat.

“FACT: Prior to President Trump taking office, we have never built wall that high,” the statement says.

Trump this week has threatened to shut down the federal government unless Congress gives him $5 billion to fund the wall’s construction. The president has also claimed that Mexico is still paying for the wall, however, which seemingly undercuts his claim that he desperately needs Congress to foot the bill.

BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women

Published

on

The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.

The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.

"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.

Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has also been associated with Harvard Law for five decades, was asked about Dershowitz's argument during an interview with Chris Hayes.
