Mr. Brown, Put Up This Wall … to Protect Us from Donald Trump!
"I can see Trump National from here."
Governor Jerry Brown is being urged to put up a wall to protect Californians.
From Donald Trump.
Today, California Democratic Party Vice Chair and Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman issued the following statement:
"Today I am personally issuing an urgent call to action to Governor Jerry Brown. A dark and evil force is descending upon our state, forcing California to face irreversible harm and danger in just a few short hours when the racist, shameless and megalomaniacal Republican Donald Trump takes the stage at the California GOP convention.
"That's why I'm calling on the Governor to build a 'great wall' to keep this divisive character out of California! Such a wall could prevent our Golden State from being permanently tainted by Trump's inexcusable and hateful rhetoric, his discriminatory policies, and his divisive politics. Most importantly, this wall will create thousands of good paying jobs and economic opportunities for our hard working union members and kick start widespread economic growth. Plus, this project won’t cost us a dime: we’ll take a page out of Trump’s book and have him cover the construction costs! Please, Governor Brown, now is the time to take a stand and build a massive wall to keep Trump OUT!"
One supposes the chairman of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party, the largest local Democratic Party in the nation with a campaign budget of nearly $2 million per year, has tongue firmly planted in cheek.
