    Watchtowers, drones and a toxic moat: the designs for Trump's border wall

    Monorails, shipping containers and nuclear waste dumps are just some of the ways that US construction companies have interpreted Donald Trump’s call for an “impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful wall” to march 2,000 miles across the country’s border with Mexico. Up to 400 bidding contractors were expected to submit their schemes this week to the US Customs and Border Protection agency, in a militarised beauty pageant worthy of one of Trump’s own reality TV shows.

    Rules state that the wall must be tough enough to withstand attacks from “sledgehammer, car jack, pick axe, chisel, battery operated impact tools … propane or butane or other similar hand-held tools” for up to four hours, but also be “aesthetically pleasing” – although obviously only on the northern, US-facing side. It must be “physically imposing in height”, ideally 30ft, but the terms also state that shorter options of 18ft “may be acceptable”.

    Clayton Industries of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, who claim to be “revamping the energy sector through matter manipulation”, have proposed digging a 100ft trench along the border and filling it with nuclear waste. A flimsy chainlink fence will run along the Mexican side, followed by a field of motion sensors. If any plucky border-jumpers make it past the toxic trench, they’ll be met with another 30ft wall the other side.

    Republicans have chosen the single biggest dipsh|t for president to ever be elected. I don't mean just the dumbest American president; I mean the single most retarded person ever elected to lead any country.

    Bertrand Russell said that, in a democracy, an elected leader cannot be more stupid than
    the people who voted for one because the more stupid the leader is, the more stupid they were.

    Wow! I have to be careful about quoting Vivify. If I had written it, then the jingoistic troll HandyAndy would be
    presumably attacking me for allegedly 'defaming' Americans or some other words that he put into my mouth.

    I think the American electorate has defamed America more than you ever will, darling.

    Nothing makes you want to spend 50 billion on someone else's pointless wall like being called called a rapist does.

    Of course razor wire would be cheaper and more effective (but would be bad for the wildlife).

    That's not trump-esque enough for La Mandarina. How about electrified razor wire with a minotaur guarding the other side?

    Trump will think that a great idea but will misread it slightly such that the guards on the other side will be scary looking, little Trump dolls.

    You only need to build a few hundred metres of 'Trumpesque' wall for the cameras. The rest can be much simpler (or non-existent). After all, if you get the money up front, and take four years building the first few kilometres, you can keep the change.

    Someone needs to take some footage of the black gate from a Lord of the Rings film and paste Trump's face on one of those big ugly trolls. The internet can thank me later.

    There are things more fitting than words we could put into your mouth.

    The abusive lying troll HandyAndy keeps showing that he's obsessed with personally
    attacking me or inciting as much abuse of me as he can.
