Trump Says Clinton Will Do Something That is Literally Impossible

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has made many claims and told a lot of lies, but his lies don’t typically violate the laws of physics like this one does.

Trump spoke in Colorado and New Mexico yesterday where he twice claimed Hillary Clinton will “triple the size of our country in one week.

“But she wants open borders,” Trump said at a campaign stop in Greeley, Colorado. “You saw that during the debate. WikiLeaks got her again. She never talked about open borders. She wants open borders. We could have 600 million people pour into our country. Think of it. Once you have open borders like that, you don’t have a country anymore.”

At his third and final stop in Albuquerque, Trump repeated the claim, although he increased the number by 50 million.

You could annex the entire population of Latin America and not hit 650 million. You could annex the entire region and admit every refugee in the entire world and still not hit 650 million. You certainly couldn’t do it in one week even if the numbers were there.

Given that he said this twice at two different rallies, it clearly wasn’t a gaffe or slip of the tongue. This is now a talking point.

I don’t exactly hold Trump’s supporters in high esteem, but even they must have done a double take after he said this.

    Oh, please. The flocked to him when he called Mexicans rapists. They applauded when he told them to assassinate Clinton. They cheered when he said he’d put his political opponent in jail, smirked when he said he wouldn’t accept the results of the election and defended him when he declared himself a pedophile.

    The only “double take” they’d do would look like this:

    Am I the only one who cringes at the way Donald Trump says the word “country” ?

      Certainly has a skeezy quality about it.

    I’ll give Donald Trump the benefit of the doubt on this claim: I don’t think he was lying. I think he genuinely believed what he said.

    Which means, in this one isolated case, Donald Trump was not a lying scumbag. He was an innumerate and delusional scumbag.

    Donald Trump must never be elected President of the United States.

    I doubt it. I don’t think they have any comprehension of truth, facts, or numbers, let alone physics. And even if they did, they just don’t care.
