Build That Wall!

The Republican Party had their third presidential debate last night. Again, without Donald Trump. Again, probably the least watched show on tv last night. For myself, I was watching the Raptors beat Dallas in a game that was far more entertaining than the debate. I only remembered that there was a debate when I turned to a news channel that was habving a post-debate show. Watched it for two minutes and fell asleep.

The image above is that of Vivek Ramaswamy. He is one of the candidates who is trying to show that he can out Trump, Trump. His car is designed so that he can not do left turns. Last night Vivek proposed that a border wall ne built with Canada. Though this might sound crazy, and, it is, many Canadians have proposed the same thing once Trump became President. Obviously I am treating this with the seriousness it deserves.

This is what Vivek said during the border security topic section of the debate.

“I’m the only candidate on this stage, as far as I’m aware, who has actually visited the northern border. There was enough fentanyl that was captured just on the northern border last year to kill three million Americans. So we’ve got to just skate to where the puck is going — not just where the puck is. Don’t just build the wall — build both walls.”

Kind of witty that he used a hockey analogy, EH?

Fact check time. US Customs has reported seizing two pounds of fentanyl coming in from Canada, so far this year. Customs has seized 27,000 pounds of fentanyl, in total, this year.

That is my chirp for today. Tomorrow, on a more serious note. The chirp will be about who Donald Trump is considering for Vice President. My only hint is that eight years ago, the pick would have been considered a joke. Now, that pick is terrifying.
