Wall of Moms

Donald Trump is famous for his wall, almost none of which he has built, but now mothers in Portland, Oregon have succeeded in building a better wall. In response to Trump sending in federal officers into Portland under the weak excuse that they are protecting federal property (like statues and other monuments), the city’s mothers have come to the rescue.

The federal agents have been running around wearing camouflage outfits and removing protesters using unmarked vehicles, violating the law that they are supposed to operate only on federally owned property. Their aggressive tactics, including the use of tear gas, rubber bullets, and other munitions have mainly made matters much worse.

In reply, the mothers arrived, linked arms and formed a human wall separating the peaceful protesters from the federal agents, chanting “Feds stay clear! Moms are here!”:

Twitter lit up, making sure that if something happened to our mothers, the world would know. Here’s a tweet from a mom and preschool teacher (I guess her job gives her valuable insights into Trump’s behavior).

And now, Trump has announced he is going to send federal agents into Chicago, and even New York City. I sincerely hope that this totally backfires on him.

Trump is trying to act tough, a blatant attempt to position himself as the “Law and Order” candidate. Ironically, a new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows Joe Biden leading Trump on the issue of “crime and safety” by nine points, 50% to 41%.

    The wall keeps growing, first adding dads, and now veterans. Trump is totally screwing himself.

    And more! In addition to the Wall of Vets, a Wall of Moms, and a Wall of Dads, we have also seen a Wall of Chefs, a Wall of Lawyers, and a Wall of Medics.
