"Mexico Will Pay For The Wall"

Wow, progressives just won't shut up about this one.
Maybe I should care more about it...but I just don't.
I never thought that was a serious claim. I mean, Trump just says shit. Honestly, who believed that? I mean, Trump shouldn't just say shit. (We've fallen on hard times when we have to say this about the POTUS...) And he ought to be hammered for just saying shit. So, I mean, go to it. But it isn't much of a criticism of the wall thing. Perhaps they're leaning on this because so many of their other arguments are so dumb. I dunno.
   Also: fer chrissake, maybe we could set the barrier question aside for now and all agree to mandate the use of E-Verify? Well...of course we can't...
   721ish days down, 739 remaining...nearing the halfway point for Trumpo the Clown.
   As for the loony leftists who control our cultural superstructure: no end--and no halfway point--in sight.

I disagree on your take. This was a specific claim repeated over and over that he now denies having said. The Dems are absolutely right to hammer him on it because it is an easy example of lying (or more properly bullshitting) to understand.

Yeah, you could be right. And, I mean, it was *such* a goddamn idiotic thing to say that he deserves to be hammered on it. And tactically: why not? Substantial, sound criticisms seem to bounce off of him. Maybe this one will take. And he's a bullshitter. He says things utterly without regard for their truth or falsehood.

So, by all means, make him pay for all that.

But there was, IMO, always exactly a 0% chance that Mexico was going to pay for the wall.
