Column: To Trump, the wall was never more than an applause line. And now it’s failing.

During his address to the nation, President Trump looked like a man who realized his con isn’t working. Like he just figured out that the fall guy is him, writes Tribune columnist Rex Huppke.

  1. At the end of his speech, I expected him to yell, “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!”??

  2. These liberals never cease to amaze me. If this paper would send reporters down to the border to ride along with border agents first hand, they might be humbled by the dangers these brave men and women face everyday with securing our border.

  10. I don’t have a wall around my House, no one lied about Mexico building me one, and I’ve never been invaded. I do have a chain link fence that the state put in along their property line for the bypass behind my House. The critters seem to dig under it or climb over it to get in my yard. Funny how the critters are smarter than the fence, maybe they didn’t get the memo that “Individual 1” is insisting that that will stop them.

  13. So you people really don’t ever report news then right? I’ve yet to see anything in your FB posts that isn’t pure opinion. That gofundme page is over 19M. Guess the real Con is being made on the readers of this “blog”.
