I just hope Mueller doesn't find out that this guy's Lt. Dan legs are made out of titanium that was mined in Russia. Collusion! :wink:

I look forward to the hush money being paid out from this slush fund.

Any belief that this will result in a wall is delusional.

By all means, please contribute. Get your friends and family to do so. If it comes up short, see if you have any retirement funds that could be liquidated.

Or, what pr0ner said.

Edit: It just dawned on me that Em2 is trying to troll with this.

Let me just say, LOL!

Only four billion nine hundred ninety-two million four hundred thousand to go (inevitable overruns not included). Keep the faith!

Well, I didn't post it because I thought you'd run off and contribute. Although, there have already been some Canadians who have done so eh. :wink:

I cannot wait for the inevitable shithow when all this money disappears into the ether without a trace of an actual wall being built. Someone (someones, most likely) is going to make a killing, and GoFundMe must be thrilled about it all, as they get a cut.

You go, deplorables!

In fairness to gofundme, they tend to play things pretty straight and narrow. When this fizzles out, any money actually collected will be returned.

Which is a shame.

GoFundMe: Ladders to Get Over Trump's Wall is now live.
Should we not reach our goal--or should they (ahem) not reach theirs--all funds raised will go to the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) , a Texas-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees.

I suspect that this money will find its way to his reelection campaign, and the chumps who donated will be fine with that.

If you read the grift article, at the very end he says, "I didn't expect this to be this big...". Umm, how does that statement fit with a necessary goal of 5 billion(+)?
I don't remember where I read this, Cort, maybe it was in the last patch notes, but they said the UAZ really handles the best when... the wheels are actually touching the ground.

That's the part of this nonsense that I've never fully understood. Walls keep people IN too. And yet the morons who scream for the wall the loudest are also the ones convinced that the government is evil and the only thing keeping us from being enslaved is the 2nd amendment.

I'm a bit amused that that when someone's career is built on creating websites that focus solely on wild conspiracy theories and bilking the rubes out of their $$, that's just considered "being a conservative" these days.

Seems rather fitting.

Would you believe 50 agents?"

I love the fact that this keeps increasing. I would love nothing more than for it to get up to $50MM, $75MM, or even $100 MM.

It will that much more hilarious when they realize it’s nowhere even close to what is actually required, and then nothing actually gets built. The frenzied howling will be a sight to behold.

I’m genuinely curious how the MAGA’s think this is going to play out. For the sake of argument, let’s say that this GoFundMe exceeds all expectations and gets up to, say, $100 million.

Then what? How does that pile of money translate into the building of an actual border wall? The plan, such as it is, seems awfully light on those specifics.

For the record, here’s what I see as the two most likely scenarios:

1. They shut it down and refund the donations, but claim victory because they “proved that the American people want a wall”, or some such nonsense.

2. They partner with a construction company, build a small section of wall somewhere, hold a big press rally and make a big show about how this is “the beginning of greatness”, then the rest of the money disappears into administrative costs without many questions being asked.
