The WALL, a Mnemonic Device

Polarize. Divide and rule. The cartoonist @MarianKamensky1 explains how Trump did it:

Don’t forget, we are building and renovating big sections of Wall right now. Moving quickly, and will cost far less than previous politicians thought possible. Building, after all, is what I do best, even when money is not readily available!

In other words—the “wall” was originally cooked up as a trick to use the candidate’s narcissism (“I am the greatest builder!”)to get him to talk about immigration policy.

Virtually *everything* about this man and his “presidency” can be understood through his narcissism.

Once built, the wall would become boring. In 2014, Trump's spin doctors set the wall on the agenda so that Trump can focus on a simple issue for simple minds. As intended, the Dems proudly got caught in that trap.
