Nothing says “Bring us your poor” like surrounding your country with a 100-foot deep moat of nuclear waste. That’s one of the proposals for the new border wall that will be paid for by…you guessed it… not Mexico.

On the good news side, it turns out that the plus-side of having an IQ-challenged social media narcissist for a president is that he’s vulnerable to satire. Steve Bannon is now off of the NSC, apparently not because he wants to spend more time with his family, but because the Toddler-in-Chief was miffed about #PresidentBannon getting too much credit for guiding policy. Keep on trollin’.
