It does, but come on. He’s a former President that could easily be kidnapped or have his family kidnapped. And to be fair, it’s not much of a wall. The Sec. Service protection he has there is far more formidable.
But that’s not the point. The two problems are apples and oranges and it weakened his argument. I started getting texts during the speech after he said that so a lot of people I know sort of cringed the same way.
I’m jaded though. I am on record here as saying I never thought any form of wall would be built. Never believed it, even when he said Mexico would pay for it during the campaign. To me, that made it all the more unrealistic. I don’t know how this ends, but it won’t be without compromise and it won’t be with a wall. I believe it when I see it.
