1) The left will be attacking Trump’s comments on El Paso, declaring that the border wall didn’t contribute to the safety of El Paso.

I’mma go ahead and shit that shit down right now.
2) First off, watch how Politifact and other such fact checkers treat city safety rankings, declaring such statements half true for Democrats while saying the stats “are misleading and shouldn’t be used to rank city safety”…
3) My money’s on a Pants on Fire rating by Politifact, because they’re partisan fucking hacks.

Now, let’s go over a bit of geography.

Also, my double dickface cat Ollie is helping
4) Now, El Paso is RIGHT ON THE BORDER. Do you want to know what city is directly across the border, as in they’re both so close they’re effectively the same fucking city?

Ciudad Juarez.
5) And do you know what Juarez is in 2017?

One of the most dangerous cities in the world.

In 2010 they were considered the most dangerous city in the world.…
6) Want to know why Trump focused on El Paso? That’s where the initial parts of his wall went up.…
7) “The new barrier will extend west from Santa Teresa, New Mexico — a town located about 13 miles northwest of El Paso — and will replace shorter vehicle barriers, which agents said are not effective in deterring illegal crossers or drug smuggling.”
8) Woah, hold up, so just 13 miles from El Paso near a town on the NM border we just had the fucking VEHICLE BARRIERS? Ie the shit you can just throw some planks of plywood on the barbed wire and WALK over?! 13 miles from Juarez, ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS CITIES IN THE WORLD?!
9) Quite frankly, the wall between El Paso and Juarez is a testament to the efficacy of the walls that these ‘fact checking’ fraudsters will REFUSE to look at
10) Here’s an article (google link, the article is magically gone if I try to go directly to the site) from 2013 talking about how great the wall in El Paso is…
11) “Cordero [El Paso border patrol agent] said he had seen dramatic changes since the early 1990s. Today's border-crosser has to navigate through border-patrol agents, ground sensors, cameras that can see day and night, drones and a 14-to-18 foot fence.”
12) Hmmmmm. The 1990’s. Back when Juarez was rated the most dangerous country in the world DUE TO THE CARTEL WARFARE IN THE CITY.
13) How are the lying @nytimes and @PolitiFact fact checkers going to lie to you? How will @CNN bring on Ana Nochino to chastise real fuckmothering conservatives about Trump’s El Paso comments?
@nytimes @PolitiFact @CNN 14) “Oh, well, the wall getting put up a couple years ago didn’t stop crime, no fall from the year before to the year after, nope. Lies. Pants on fire lies.”
@nytimes @PolitiFact @CNN 15) What you should shove in their faces:

There was an active warzone mere MILES from El Paso on the streets of Juarez that has been ongoing ever since. A wall has been built.
@nytimes @PolitiFact @CNN 16) Between the 90’s and now, has the crime rate dropped in El Paso despite being in PISSINF DISTANCE from ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS CITIES IN THE ENTIRE WORLD?

@nytimes @PolitiFact @CNN 17) Fact check that you feckless inkshitting #fakenews.
