Trump Wants to Paint the Border Wall Black

“President Donald Trump has requested the border wall, one of his signature campaign promises, be painted black, a proposal that could cost hundreds of millions of dollars, according to a new report.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday Trump had ordered the border wall to be painted black in order to make it look more imposing and to make it too hot to touch during the summer.

According to estimates obtained by the Post, the cost of painting the wall black would range from $500 million for acrylic paint to over $3 billion for a powder coating on the wall.

USA Today

Nero fiddled while Rome burned and if it weren’t political suicide Trump would be golfing while the coronavirus pandemic destroys our economy and kills tens of thousands of Americans.

Since he can’t indulge in his favorite pastime the stable genius is pondering painting the border wall black to make it look more imposing and to make it too hot to touch during the summer.

At a time then millions of Americans are jobless and struggling to pay the rent Trump wants to waste millions, perhaps billions, to paint the border wall black. That money would be better spent providing food, medicine and clothing to the needy.

To those running away from persecution in their countries and seeking a better life in America, it doesn’t matter if the wall is black, silver or neon pink. They will climb over the wall, or tunnel under it, regardless of the damn color of the obstacle that’s keeping them from the land of freedom and opportunity.

I’m reminded of the song “Paint it Black” by one of Trump’s favorite rock bands, The Rolling Stones:

 I look inside myself and see my heart is black

I see my red door, I must have it painted black

Maybe then I’ll fade away and not have to face the facts

It’s not easy facing up, when your whole world is black

Trump, your heart is pitch black and I’m not surprised you want to paint everything black, but your days are numbered. The black cloud that hovers over America will disappear when we kick you out of office.

Rock Icon Keith Richards Says America Must Get Rid of Donald Trump

“Keith Richards, guitarist for the legendary rock `n roll band the Rolling Stones, said the US should get rid of President Donald Trump — and recalled when he said he did the same during a 1989 tour by wielding a knife.

The rock icon told the BBC Trump was their promoter for an Atlantic City show in 1989, and recalled going red with anger when the future President`s name took top billing for their show as `Donald Trump presents the Rolling Stones.`

`I got out my trusty blade, stuck it in the table and said: `You have to get rid of this man,` Richards said. He continued, `Now America has to get rid of him. Don`t say I didn`t warn you.`”


In 1989 Keith Richards already had 25 years of drug and alcohol abuse under his belt, but he had enough presence of mind to realize that Donald Trump was a toxic narcissistic buffoon who shouldn`t be associated with his concert tour.

Thirty years later the rock `n roll icon has only a couple of hundred functioning brain cells, but he still recognizes Trump as an existential threat to our American democracy.

Trump`s supporters may have a few thousand more functioning brain cells that the legendary guitarist, but they utterly fail to recognize their Messiah as a fuc*ing moron.

Thirty years ago Richards punctuated his disgust for Trump by sticking his beloved knife, that he probably used to cut lines of cocaine, into a table.

We feel Richards, God knows how many lovers of democracy have punched walls, and kicked their TV when Trump`s on the screen.

Richards` music will live forever, I pray and hope that his warning will inspire us to overthrow Trump by any means necessary.
