Prototypes of Trump’s Fantasy Border Wall Have Been Completed

Construction of the prototypes for Trump's fantasy border wall (pictured above) have been completed and, contrary to appearances, the companies contracted to build them reportedly paid special attention to aesthetics according to Reuters.

The builders paid attention to aesthetics in their bid to win lucrative contracts. One wall segment features deep-blue steel and another has a brick facade, standing in sharp contrast to the area’s existing border fence, a ramshackle structure of corrugated steel left over from the Vietnam War.

In late November, a private company, which border patrol officials declined to name, will begin a 30- to 60-day process of testing the wall prototypes to determine how easy they would be to climb over or dig beneath.

Personally, I think these prototypes look like the facade of a dilapidated 90s-era shopping mall, but maybe that's an appropriate metaphor.

Trump's fantasy border wall will never be funded so, in any event, the ugly prototype selected from these trials makes no difference. These prototypes were constructed with funding the Department of Homeland Security found in their couch cushions.

    Great Wall is only 27′ high, so there!

    We want it to be aesthetically pleasing!

    So….beige, then?

      How about a Diego Rivera mural?

  • They sort of look like a display of tie clips.

    Hey, I know that’s lame. Douchehenge is already coined by Rick Wilson. I can’t top that, so I’m not even going to bother. I couldn’t top Badgerite’s remarks either. My hat’s off to you both.

    Those are spectacularly ugly implementations of a spectacularly ugly idea.

    As Rich Wilson calls it……”Douchehenge”.

    • Damn you. I was going to write the EXACT same thing.

        Great minds. Sorry. Saw it this morning and it was too good to pass up.
