It’s been said ad nauseum that we live in two countries, America and Amerika, co-existent and contiguous. Here is more grist for the mill of that proposition. Trump/Pence sends out a regular email to supporters, usually asking for a contribution. Here is today’s, claiming that the Trump wall, of legend and lore, is actually being built.

This Trump/Pence email blast pushes a brazen lie. The wall construction it depicts was actually finished in November and funded by Congress through normal processes. Trump is trying to swindle his followers into believing it happened since his emergency declaration. https://t.co/XTPepqI2Ze

Watch their campaign email and text marketing closely. I’m betting they’ll do a lot of personalization, testing and targeting via email and text like they did – with Russia – via Facebook, Twitter, etc in 2016. The same level of personalization is available.

It seems pretty obvious that Trump is counting on residents of Amerika to only read his emails and watch Fox News and listen to his shills on the radio. Unfortunately, if they talk to residents of America, may find out unpleasant facts, such as there has been zero new construction on any wall, much less that a $6.3Bil project is underway, without a dime’s worth of approval from Congress.
You can’t blame Trump for trying. He convinced enough rubes to vote for him, why in the world shouldn’t he assume that he can just keep it all going, spin more lies and weave more fraud tapestries?
