Kudos to Mexico for always giving us plenty of giggle material. In terms of laughability I give them a solid ocho (8). Negative points in the whole “functional country” arena, though. For obvious reasons. Speaking of which, Mexico’s latest antics? Doing and saying anything to stop us from building a wall (see Mexico PANICS. Says Trump Border Wall is Bad… For the Environment?!). That recently manifested itself into a Mexican congressman desperately trying to prove why the US doesn’t need a wall. By climbing the border fence into our country. Yes, really…
A Mexican congressman went to great lengths to illustrate why he believes that President Trump’s controversial U.S.-Mexico border wall is “unnecessary” and “totally absurd.”
Braulio Guerra, a congressman from the state of Queretaro, tweeted photos and a video of himself perched atop a 30-foot tall fence that separates the Mexican border city of Tijuana from the U.S.
“I was able to scale it, climb it, and sit myself right here,” Guerra said in the video. “It would be simple for me to jump into the United States, which shows that it is unnecessary and totally absurd to build a wall.” He adds, “It’s easy and it shows how unnecessary this project, this political rhetoric from Donald Trump, is.”
Firstly, notice that stout little tub bucket? We’re supposed to believe he effortlessly Olympian-high-jumped his way up to the top of the fence. Also, he conveniently leaves out any footage of himself launching to the top. Maybe he got more help than he’s letting on. Either way, methinks it’s not as easy as he claims.
Granted, there are people who can scale border fences. This smarmy toad likely isn’t one of them. But the point remains, we know it’s relatively easy for some to get across the border. Repeatedly. Which is exactly why Americans want an intimidating, giant wall in the first place. This video? Proves we should make said wall even taller and more unscalable.
Also worth noting is how shameless this dude is about the vast majority of his country breaking US law. Illegal immigration is a big part of Mexico’s culture. Stop trying to deny them their culture, RACISTS!
Remember when Trump said Mexico was sending its worst people? This congressman’s attitude supports such a sentiment. He seems not at all concerned with doctors, engineers, scientists and poets waving adios to Mexico. I’m just saying.
Nice try, Mexico. We don’t care what you think the US needs. Every time you pull something like this the wall gets 10 feet higher…
