During the campaign
Trump: What are we gonna do?
Rabid crowd: BUILD A WALL!!!!!!
Trump: And who's going to pay for it?
Rabid crowd: MEXICO!!!!!!!!
Trump: Who?
Rabid crowd: MEXICO!!!!!!!!
Trump: 100% of it!

Tomorrow morning
Politically hung over crowd: Wait, what????

Trump to Ask Congress, Not Mexico, to Pay for Border Wall: Sources | KTLA

Sources: Trump will ask Congress, not Mexico, to pay for border wall - CNNPolitics.com

And since the rich will be getting tax cuts looks like all of us on this forum will be paying for it after all. Damn, didn't see that coming.

How dare you classify all of us on this forum as poor American taxpayers? Some of us are rich Canadian non-taxpayers.

That doesn't address my point. YOU said that going along with this idea will not have long term consequences on congress because voter attention spans are short. So if voter attention spans are short then how will this benefit Trump? If it's merely a short term gain then why do it when the potential political fallout could be so great? Especially since it would require Trump to basically continue to embarrass the Republican congress in order to make any use of this supposed opportunity? Feel free to use big words even if you don't know what they mean.

Cause republicans are plain old dummies of course!

One last try. Read slowly this time.

I think you're only really exposing how fickle and goldfish brained you are when it comes to politics.

You simpleton.

1. How long do you think this new renegade status will last?

2. Will Trump capitalizing on this opportunity have negative consequences for congress?

3. If so, how long will congress have to eat Trump's ****?

1. Instant damage control for Trump's transition.

2. Hardly. Tomorrow the news and public outcry will be over the breaking news about "the Wall" That and the recent Macy's debacle.

3. *blink* it's already ancient history. GOP lawmakers are already doing the nightly network cycle and doing spin control on Trump's behalf over his massive flip flop today.

Is this your way of saying that Donald Trump has won you over or something? Because you are really putting waaaaaay too much faith into this turning out like you say.
