It kinda makes sense, Republicans in general want to take America back to the medieval times so

As usual, Trump's not thinking straight. How will he escape to Mexico when Mueller comes after him?

I am not sure if people heard of a newer technology called the ladder. They say it 'Trumps' the wall.

"It works even better now" Because medieval had air travel technology that we don't have today? For a guy who spends so much time flying to and from his vacation home, you'd think he'd be aware of the limits of a wall.

The wall's as medieval as his immigration policies.

Let me see....!!! Oldest known wall is in Turkey dated to around 9,500 BC (11,500 yrs ago) and the oldest wheel ever found dated to 3,200BC (5,200 yrs ago) in Ljubljana...!!!! Pretty much anything Trump says can be debunked and proven to be a lie...!!! Yeah......There goes another Trump Lie...!!!!

Build a small scale wall, with action figures in the towers. If Trump becomes suspicious (hey, anything is possible!), just tell him that the wall is really far away.

since Jan 3, the Grownups have been able to access the Daycare Center of the White House, but only to find that the Toddler-in-Chief has locked himself in the toilet and refuses to get out until they let him build a useless wall out of lego. THE WORLD IS WATCHING AND SCRATCHING OUR HEADS AMERICA.

Actually, a wall is not medieval. It's older than that. By medieval times, walls were already a well established technology. But you know what else was a well established? Shovels, ladders and ropes.

What they didn't tell you was that was the King's pet rock - he named it "Eric."

I mean, can we maybe talk about some of the walls in history that didn't work? (Hint: It's all of them), Like the Limes or the Berlin Wall?
