      So, the Yellow Vests in France have French President Macron scared, and he has given to some of their demands, including raising the monthly minimum wage and getting rid of the diesel tax which sparked the original protests.

Then the scary man got in his unbelievable vehicle…

He’s just making stuff up now. He doesn’t even agree with himself. Here’s what Trump said of asylum seekers yesterday:

They’re driving in and they’re not coming through checkpoints, because you can’t have three or four people in the back with tape over your mouths and your hands tied and drive past someone who is checking out your van…The fact is if we don’t have barriers, walls, call them what you will, very strong barriers where people can not any longer drive right across. They have unbelievable vehicles. They make a lot of money. They have the best vehicles you can buy. They have stronger, bigger and faster vehicles than our police have and that ICE have and that Border Patrol have.

Ok, let’s think through this, shall we?

We are lead to believe that these poor Central American refugees will travel by foot, sometimes with no shoes on, take months to get here and face all kinds of problems on the road. But once they get to the border, they go all Transformer on us and have better vehicles than the US border patrol and all of our military.

To believe this, both of these things need to be true. The refugees are faking the fact that they have no other means of transportation. And they are masters of invention that we really should hire because our rocket scientists are slackers compared to the tech wizards of Guatemala.

Im sure there are people who won’t think this through because kicking libs is so much fun. But why should we treat it as newsworthy? It’s like watching a crash oh unbelievable vehicles.
