#EndorseThis: An Architect, Engineer, And Interior Designer ‘Build’ Trump’s Wall

Share
Trump, Wall, Colbert

What would happen if you gathered an architect, an engineer, an interior designer, and a concrete guy to price out and “build” Trump’s unnecessary U.S.-Mexico border wall? Stephen Colbert put this scenario to the test, and you can imagine how quickly it all unraveled. (Here at National Memo, we published a popular engineering analysis of the enormous costs and construction difficulties of “the wall” back in 2015.)

As the costs continued to soar with each new proposal, Colbert wondered whether it would make more sense to just build a highway along the border. “Because what is a highway if not a wall on its side?” Colbert pointed out.

Watch as Colbert attempts to figure out how much concrete and wall paper Trump will need to build his “big, beautiful wall.” You also don’t want to miss his phone call to the Mexican consulate once he calculates the final tab.

    Typical Colbert non-funny routine. The skit is full of errors, in an attempt to try and mock the concept. Just for FAKE “news” from mediocre actors who think anyone really cares about their make believe world.

    Amazing what you come up with when you get professionals involved in building a wall! The REAL truth comes out as to costs! I love it!!! They were probably more in line with the cost than 45 and his cohorts!

    I’ve earned $104k in 2016 by freelancing from home and I did that by working part time f­o­r 3 or sometimes more hrs a day. I was following a money making model I found on-line and I am amazed that i was able to make so much extra income. It’s really beginner friendly and I’m just so thankful that i found this. Here’s what I did… http://www.wzurl.me/UhyySA
