Trump’s ‘Sexy’ Border Wall Demands Are Internet's Fave New Meme For Everything

by John Haltiwanger

This past weekend, the White House released the requirements for President Donald Trump's wall along the US-Mexico border, and they, much like Trump in general, are nothing short of absurd.

Fox News summed up the requirements in a slide that seems like satire, but is totally not FAKE NEWS (or alternative facts).

The wall must be 30 feet high because obviously no ladder or rope could ever reach that high.

It must be difficult to climb or cut through, which seems to ignore the fact that humans know how to dig, too.

Finally, it must also "look good from US side."

What "look good" means exactly isn't clear.

But, we are dealing with Trump, who is obsessed with appearances and has said things like, "A person who is very flat-chested is very hard to be a 10."

So, it's not that shocking he wants the wall to be sexy, so to speak.

The internet immediately turned this ridiculous slide into a meme and started mocking it relentlessly -- because that's all people really have left in the dystopian country we now inhabit.

Werewolves are definitely necessary.

The wall must be "really bigly," obviously. This is America. We go bigly or go home.

"Funky Fresh" sounds like a reasonable requirement.


FYI: This list of requirements leaves out who is really paying for the wall.

Throughout his campaign, Trump promised Mexico would pay for the wall.

Just to be clear: This is not happening. American taxpayers will foot the bill -- and the wall could cost up to $21 billion.


The list of requirements for the wall and the subsequent responses (as funny as they are) are emblematic of how pointless this entire endeavor is.

Long story short: A border wall will not solve America's immigration problems, but it will cost American taxpayers a significant amount of money, which could be allocated to a far more effective and benevolent initiative.
