This clip is in the process of going viral, but just in case you miss it, here’s seventeen seconds from May 21, 2004—before the dementia hit full force (he’s not been this coherent since taking office):

Never, ever give up. Don’t give up. Don’t allow it to happen. If there is a concrete wall in front of you, go through it, go over it, go around it, but get to the other side of that wall. — Donald Trump, commencement speech for disappointed students at Wagner College in New York. They were disappointed at the guest then, most likely more disappointed now. The clip was rediscovered for Trevor Noah’s The Daily Show.

O.o. Hopefully those at the southern border won’t figure out you can get to another side of a wall. We must hide this clip before there’s a national security emergency. Oh. Wait.

I’m generally not political in this blog, but that doesn’t mean I’m never political.

  1. my husband found that clip this morning – highly entertaining. The other thing is that $5b will only build a very small section of wall/screen/artistic drapery/room divider/whatever, so it is merely symbolic. And, as someone else pointed out – surely an immediate crisis would not call for a 15 year infrastructure project. Or as, I think it was David Frum, put it – my house is on fire – quick let’s draw up plans for a new fire station. Just a bit of levity for an irritating subject 🙂
