Lying Trump and Pesky Pelosi

President Trump returned from Europe and found that Mexico is more willing to deal than Congress. Now, there’s no guarantee Mexico will do everything they promised. Here at home a lot of folks still in Congress reneged on their votes a few years ago to tackle the onslaught of illegal immigration.

Folks are wondering where Mexico will get the money to hire the immigrants they have agreed to hang on to. Well, I heard a nub of an idea a few days ago and I think it’s a good one: pay those folks to build the Wall. Yes, and to do it at a bargain price, build in on Mexico’s side of the border. This only applies to the Wall along the Rio Grande River. See, our Texas ranchers and others depend on that river and don’t want to be cut off from it. And acquiring a right-of-way in Mexico would be way cheaper than in Texas.

I heard that Speaker Pelosi said she wanted to see Trump in prison rather than be impeached. Maybe she was joking. But if she is serious, what would she charge him with? Let’s see: destruction of evidence, endangering top secret documents, receiving millions of dollars from Russia. No, wait. That was Clinton.

Really, I think she would send Trump to prison for lying. He lies to his lawyers, lies about his golf score, lies to his wives; according to some counts, he has lied over 10,000 times since announcing his candidacy. For a man who brags that he is not a politician, he is getting close to the best of ‘em.

Joe Biden is the latest to announce his plan to eliminate fossil fuels and stop global warming. He plans to do it by 2050. That’s convenient because he would be 108.

You know, instead of the Presidential debates with 25 candidates taking shots at each other, here’s what I would pay to see: a debate on government policies on fossil fuels and climate change with Biden, O’Rourke, Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez… in China. Do it in Beijing, or Shanghai, or on the Great Wall.

“We cuss our elected officials and we joke about ‘em but they are all good fellows at heart and if they wasn’t in politics, why, they would be doing something else against us that might be worse.” May 18, 1926
