On Wheels and Walls

994c23b5-55c0-49c5-9e21-8d2a0f5c5f0b“They say a wall is medieval, well so is a wheel. A wheel is older than a wall,” Trump said today, later adding, “The wheel is older than the wall, you know that? There are some things that work. You know what? A wheel works and a wall works. Nothing like a wall.”

Then our imbicile president said, “And I looked, and every single car out there, even the really expensive ones that the Secret Service uses — and believe me they are expensive — I said, ‘Do they all have wheels?’ ‘Yes.’ ‘Oh. I thought it was medieval.’”

It’s kind of ridiculous to have to fact check every “fact” our lying leader spews, but here goes.

The oldest walls found in existence so far are those of the temple of Gobekli Tepe in Urfa, southeast Turkey, which date to 11,500 years ago.

Conversely, the first wheels were created to serve as potter’s wheels around 3500 BC, or around 5,500 years ago, in Mesopotamia.

Donald, Donald, Donald. Haven’t you heard what a truly great president, Abraham Lincoln, said? “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

    Classic, love this chip, chip, chipping away of his own meagre integrity by his own enormous stupidity. I can’t believe he’s still there!

      I can’t believe it either, but he’s got his Republican sycophants in Congress protecting him.

        From an outsider looking in from another planet i’d say this planet would be a good one to invade, we couldn’t hold a piss up in a brewery at the moment on both sides of the Atlantic.

    Bizarre hearing about him traveling south and complaining about going to see some walling (and the comunities/community) — that his staff is making him do it.

    I think when Abraham Lincoln, said? “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.” he hit the nail right on the head.

    Someone should show that quote to 45, and explain it to him.
