On Wednesday, Joe Biden said if he’s elected president, he won’t tear down Donald Trump infamous wall.
But he will stop construction on it.
Witness the measure of a man:
“There will not be another foot of wall construction in my administration. I’m going to make sure that we have border protection, but it’s going to be based on making sure that we use high-tech capacity to deal with it. And at the ports of entry — that’s where all the bad stuff is happening.”
It seems that may leave an inch or two left undone — as noted by Fox News, though Trump touted the wall somethin’ fierce in 2016, only 277 miles have been completed.
And the U.S. border spans 1,974 miles.
To quote Frank Drebin:
Yet, on Tuesday, the Commander-in-Chief promised it “will be almost finished by the end of the year.”
On top of touting barrier-free fortification, Joe announced he’d stop construction-related land confiscation along America’s Southern perimeter:
“End. Stop. Done. Over. Not going to do it. Withdraw the lawsuits. We’re out. We’re not going to confiscate the land.”
The former vice president’s come a long way since 2006, the year Congress voted for the Fence Act.
A video recently surfaced of him touting his racism.
I mean, his vote for a wall:
“Folks, I voted for a fence. I voted, unlike most Democrats — and some of you won’t like it — I voted for 700 miles of fence.
“But let me tell you: We can build a fence 40 stories high. Unless you change the dynamic in Mexico and — and you will not like this — and punish American employers who knowingly violate the law when, in fact, they hire illegals. Unless you do those two things, all the rest is window dressing.”
“Now, I know I’m not supposed to say it that bluntly, but they’re the facts. They’re the facts. And so everything else we do is in between here. Everything else we do is at the margins. And the reason why I add that parenthetically — why I believe the fence is needed — does not have anything to do with immigration as much as drugs. … And let me tell you something, folks. People are driving across that border with tons — tons, hear me, tons — of everything from byproducts for methamphetamine to cocaine to heroin. And it’s all coming up through corrupt Mexico..”
So when Hillary, Chuck, and Obama also voted Yes, to Biden, a barricade was best; but when Trump proposed it…
Hey — could that just be the intolerable goofiness of politics?
Nah. Everybody knows you really figure out what you believe around 77.
Now that that’s settled, will he get the chance to apply what he’s recently learned?
If there’s a face-to-face debate, I’d guess No — Mr. Biden, respectfully — is clearly suffering from medical issues.
And Donald “The Animal” Trump will be ready to pounce.
If Joe’s smart, between now and November, he’ll stay far away from the President.
Maybe even 1,974 miles.
