Who’s uninformed?

John Kelly said yesterday that some of Trump’s comments about the wall and tough immigration policies were “uninformed”. You want to see uninformed? I got uninformed.

“The Wall will be paid for, directly or indirectly, or through longer term reimbursement, by Mexico, which has a ridiculous $71 billion dollar trade surplus with the U.S.,” Trump continued. “The $20 billion dollar Wall is “peanuts” compared to what Mexico makes from the U.S. NAFTA is a bad joke!”

Reimbursement for a trade surplus? WTF is he talking about?

I Wonder

Stuff that makes me wonder (what’s on your mind?):

  • Something I’ve expected for a long time: reports that the Russians starting meddling for Trump in the GOP primaries. Maybe there have been some but what I’ve seen is all about the general election. If Trump had ties to Russia going back to his business career it seems likely they were helping him long before the Hillary match-up.
  • Why is Trump so easily rolled by GOP hard-right conservatives, especially on immigration? Is it really just about fear of losing his base, or might they have something on him, or at least know what Putin’s holding over his head?
  • Finally, what could you say about a guy who hogs the umbrella with his own wife and kid..
