Pardon the second thread on this, but it absolutely deserves one for the comments today.
And here it is:
On Wednesday, White House communications adviser Mercedes Schlapp acknowledged that U.S. taxpayers would be paying for the wall.
“Yes,” Schlapp said when asked by a reporter whether taxpayers would ultimately pay for the wall. “And you know what else taxpayers are paying for? The financial burden of this illegal immigration.”
With a side of gaslighting:
The explicit plan was for Mexico to make a one-time payment of $5-10 billion.
“When during the campaign, I would say ‘Mexico is going to pay for it.’ Obviously, I never said this and I never meant they are going to write out a check,” Trump said.
“I said they are going to pay for it.”
So, what, was it going to be a one-time payment in cash? Beads? What?
LYING. CON. ARTIST.
