Smugglers saw through The Great Wall of Trump in minutes


Trump’s Pipe DreamEvan Vucci/AP

❝ Smuggling gangs in Mexico have repeatedly sawed through new sections of President Trump’s border wall in recent months by using commercially available power tools, opening gaps large enough for people and drug loads to pass through, according to U.S. agents and officials with knowledge of the damage.

❝ The breaches have been made using a popular cordless household tool known as a reciprocating saw that retails at hardware stores for as little as $100. When fitted with specialized blades, the saws can slice through one of the barrier’s steel-and-concrete bollards in minutes, according to the agents…

After cutting through the base of a single bollard, smugglers can push the steel out of the way, creating an adult-size gap. Because the bollards are so tall — and are attached only to a panel at the top — their length makes them easier to push aside once they have been cut and are left dangling, according to engineers consulted by The Washington Post.

Trump really has added a number of new qualities to the Republican Party: a whole new class of lies, a meaner version of class-based economics and, especially, a level of incompetence unheard of in a party which shared power for decades with essentially just one other party.

    The battery-powered reciprocating saw is an amazing tool. Don’t leave home without it. Unless you also have a battery-powered drill or angle grinder, you do have to find an existing gap in the steel structure to get your blade started. If the wall has gaps built in, then it’s a fence, not a wall.
