Donald Trump’s latest comment might – somehow – be his stupidest ever

When people called for more transparency in Donald Trump’s leadership, we’re not sure this is what they were getting at.

The President of the United States – yeah, he’s still the actual fucking president – has told reporters that the border wall he’s planning between the US and Mexico will need to be see-through – so that people don’t get hit with giant sacks of drugs. Yep.

As for the logistics of it all? Well, he can just get a smart guy to take care of that part, right?

“You have to be able to see through it,” he said.

“In other words, if you can't see through that wall – so it could be a steel wall with openings, but you have to have openings because you have to see what's on the other side of the wall.”

So it has to be see-through unless it isn’t, and if you can’t see through it you’ll need to be able to see through it. Are you still with us?

It might seem confusing, but don’t worry – Donny has come up with an example.

"As horrible as it sounds, when they throw the large sacks of drugs over, and if you have people on the other side of the wall, you don't see them – they hit you on the head with 60 pounds of stuff? It's over," he added.

"As crazy as that sounds, you need transparency through that wall. But we have some incredible designs."

Again, this man is literally the President of the United States. Yeah.

It seems, from this, that his aim is not to stop a flow of unchecked immigration, but to stop a rising wave of slapstick comedy with folks just tossing 60lb bags of drugs over a wall like some kind of cross between Breaking Bad and World’s Strongest Man.

Next up, we expect him to address the growing problem of coyotes crossing the border by painting tunnels onto bridges.

And they’ll be some of the best tunnels in the world.
