Trump’s border wall blew over in the wind — and landed on the Mexican side

President Donald Trump’s much-hyped border wall suffered an embarrassing setback when newly installed panels in his fence blew over in the wind — and landed on the Mexican side of the border.

“Mexicali police have confirmed with News 11 that a portion of the new border wall fell on the Mexico side of the border, landing on several trees,” KYMA-TV reported Wednesday. “A portion of the wall landed on the trees, preventing it from hitting the ground. It runs about 130 feet in length.”

Trump’s border wall construction has faced setbacks since Mexico refused to pay for it, as Trump had constantly promised during his 2016 campaign.

The wall falling over was not the only news on the project reported by KYMA-TV on Wednesday.

“A team of federal agents has uncovered the longest illegal border tunnel ever found along the southwest border,” KYMA-TV reported. “Members of the San Diego Tunnel Task Force (SDTTF) first discovered the tunnel’s entrance in late August of 2019. Subsequent investigation revealed it to be a record-breaker.”

The tunnel is said to stretch over 4,300 feet — which is more than three-quarters of a mile.

After months of casting doubt about wearing masks, President Donald Trump on Monday emailed his supporters about the "confusion" on the subject.

"We are all in this together, and while I know there has been some confusion surrounding the usage of face masks, I think it's something we should all try to do when we are not able to be socially distanced from others," Trump wrote in the email, that was posted online by multiple journalists.

I don't love wearing them either. Masks may be good, they may be just okay, or they may be great," the email read.

In the email, Trump referred to COVID-19 as "the China Virus."

Here’s why the coronavirus spike is especially devastating to rural communities

Published

on

The first coronavirus hot spots in the country were densely-populated cities with international ports of entry, like New York City, San Francisco, and Seattle.

But the virus has now penetrated deep into rural areas around the country. And according to Politico, a new study has shed light on the catastrophic problems this has created for rural communities: more than half of U.S. rural communities have no ICU beds, forcing hospitals to transfer patients far away to other facilities that can accommodate severe COVID-19 cases.

Joy Reid medical expert blasts the president’s lies on coronavirus: ‘Trump needs to stay in his lane’

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Joy Reid interviewed Dr. Bernard B. Ashby about the latest coming from the White House on the coronavirus pandemic.

"If, for instance, you did not test for pregnancy, does it mean you are not pregnant?" Reid asked.

Ashby, a cardiologist from Miami, praised the anchor on her new primetime show, "The ReidOut," but did not directly answer the question.

"And in terms of the whole discourse, the fact that I'm having to respond to Trump about clinical medicine is ridiculous," Dr. Ashby explained.

"Trump needs to stay in his lane. Like, we went to medical school for a long time, we did training for a long time to speak on exactly what ... we have the expertise to speak on and the fact that Trump is asserting himself in academic medicine, into clinical medicine is ridiculous," he explained.
