Donald Trump sponsors large-scale art installation along U.S.-Mexico border

Patron of the arts?

A section of Trump's "Greater Wall" in the California desert. The campaign posters will come down after the election, says Trump, "but the sculptural installation will endure for as long as it remains symbolically significant."
A section of Trump's "Greater Wall" in the California desert. The campaign posters will come down after the election, says Trump, "but the sculptural installation will endure for as long as it remains symbolically significant."

Calling it "the biggest and best piece of art ever made about the issues surrounding immigration, or about anything else, for that matter," Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump today unveiled his "Greater Wall," a replica of China's Great Wall extending along the entire U.S.-Mexico border.

Trump at the Greater Wall's unveiling. "For our motto," explained Trump, "I have chosen a pearl of wisdom from the pen of American Poet Laureate Robert Frost. God, I love art."

"The installation addresses so many aspects of our national character," said Trump at a press conference in the border city of San Diego. "Our status as an empire, much as China was an empire. Questions of trade regulation. Concerns over foreign influence on a magnificent culture. The list goes on almost as long as the wall itself. I am personally very proud to have been involved with this singular and powerful project, which I hope will contribute to the discussion of America and its interaction with the outside world for decades to come."

Trump also noted that, instead of a single artist, some 10,000 individuals had been issued grants pursuant to its collaborative realization. "In this way, it is something like the cathedral at Chartres, giving glory not to the maker, but to the one for whom it was made. Which in this case is me."

I see the clueless came out of the woodwork on Facebook tonight.

If The Donald doesn't make you smile in recognition of red-blooded NFL-style American brashness (and maybe wishful thinking,) there's probably something haywire.

Just this morning on CBS Trump described his nearest rival in recent polling, the extremely serious God-fearing African-American neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, as "a very nice man, but he's a doctor" and "he doesn't know how to get deals done."

The Donald and his idiot followers apparently do not have a clue how our government works. They want to coronate The Donald as King. Note to those who think The Donald is the answer: The President of the United States is not the CEO of the United States. The President can not make law, he can not do any of the things that The Donald claims he will do if elected. It takes Congress to make and pass laws, budgets, appropriations, etc. It may come as a big surprise to The Donald but he will have the least power of anyone in the government. Of course you can never fix stupid so it is no surprise that he had the biggest turnout in Texas.
