Fap check: “Trump’s wall is useless because Mexicans will just use a ladder”   January 26, 2017

Dana White: Trump is a really honest dude

A wall is not going to work…you just get a ladder, a taller ladder.

Not necessarily.

In February, Trump proposed a 55 ft. wall– just to put that in perspective…

Ladders that tall are not readily available for purchase at the local mercado– or Wal-Mart, for that matter…

To scale Trump’s wall, one would need to tie a bunch of ladders together (seems legit), or order a ~$1,000 extension ladder…

But even if you get to the top of the wall…

You still need to:

  • (1) Lift a 60 ft., 180 lb. ladder
  • (2) Place it securely on the other side
  • (3) Make sure it doesn’t fall over, leaving you stranded atop the wall to die…

Theoretically, you could turn yourself in to authorities– but good luck getting any bars on your TracFone.

Fap check

Up to ~30 feet, a wall can be easily scaled via ladder.

But upwards of 50 feet, a wall becomes an effective deterrent against funding Social Security and Medicare

The claim that a border wall is useless because “Mexicans can always buy a taller ladder” is patently false…
