#TrumpShutdown Solution: Fund the Metaphor, not the Wall

The above video is by Liberal Redneck Trae Crowder, and his take on why Trump wants his wall. Please take a minute to watch through to the end for his suggestion on how to solve the problem. Clue: Barack Obama is the key,

Sen. Lindsay Graham, (R-SC), once the best friend of the revered and honorable Sen. John McCain, but now the turncoat golfing pal of the late McCain's arch enemy, President Trump, recently said Trump's demand for a wall on the U.S. southern border is just a "metaphor for border security."

So, I have a suggestion for Nancy and Chuck, the determined and ever-so-honorable leaders of Congressional Democrats.

Tell Trump he can have his $5.7 billion, but it's for the "metaphor," and if he thinks that means the wall, so what? After all a "metaphor" isn't really real.

Here are some examples of other metaphors from to help illustrate that point, some of which seem particularly appropriate to a discussion about Trump:

  • "She was fishing for compliments." The woman isn't literally casting a lure to hook compliments out of the ocean. Rather, it's a dead metaphor used to signify a desire for accolades.

  • "Success is a sense of achievement; it is not an illegitimate child." This saying reinforces the belief that everyone wants to take credit for success, but no one wants to take responsibility for their failings.

  • "He reeks of infidelity." When this is said about a cheating partner, it doesn't mean there's an actual odor. This metaphor is saying it's obvious the person is a liar and a cheat.

They've been fighting over this ridiculousness now since before Christmas and 800,000 federal workers aren't getting paid as a result. Even the 46,000 IRS workers who are being brought back in to process tax returns, the source of most of the government's revenue, won't get paid until this is over.

The country is hurting. People are pissed. Polls say Trump and the Republicans are largely to blame for the stalemate, and besides, a majority of Americans oppose the wall anyway and say it won't work. Hell, only last year leading Republicans dragged their feet on appropriating money for the wall and some, even Lindsay Graham, said it was a bad idea.

“People can climb over the wall or go under the wall or through the wall. We’ve seen that in different places,” Sen. John Cornyn, R-TX, the Senate’s No. 2 Republican, told The Washington Post in September.

Cornyn is from Texas. That's where Trump visited last week to draw attention to the national emergency caused by hordes of immigrants. But Cornyn should know; he's probably seen that first-hand.

But, of course, the Republicans have changed their tune and now are backing Trump, even though they previously said spending billions on a wall would be pretty much a stupid idea. That's because they are spineless, useless sloths who have no business serving in Congress. And the few who are breaking from Trump are up for reelection in 2020 and are worried about being booted out on their butts.

So, anyway, the solution is easy.

They should just agree to fund the metaphor, then the money can be used for border security like hiring enough customs agents, getting more dogs to sniff out drugs, using drones to spot those trying to cross illegally, fixing the existing fence where it's busted down and maybe even cracking down on Visa overstays, which is more of a problem than an invasion by moms with little kids who are trying to escape danger and violence in their homelands.

Let's start a new chant: Fund the Metaphor! How about that?

By the way, if you haven't checked out that video above, you're missing out. The Liberal Redneck says the solution is to get former President Obama to come out strongly for the wall. Then, says the Liberal Redneck, Trump will never go near a wall again.
