My wife, who I love dearly, hates Trump. After he was elected, to keep the peace we agreed to not talk about politics which has held relatively well over the last two years. Occasionally when she thinks she has me cornered with something she saw on MSM, she will bring up a Trump event and try to stick it to me. I take these as red-pill opportunities and so far have had little or no effect on her.
Last night we were having a conversation and out of the blue she asks me what I thought of "Trump's hissy fit" and closing down the government because he couldn't get the wall funded. Holding back my urge to puke because of the MSM's intrusion into my family life and the brain of the one I love, and realizing she doesn't get any conservative news input whatsoever, I calmly explained to her that Trump didn't close down the government. The House approved the funding, the bill went to the Senate, the Democrats filibustered it until it expired, and the government closed down...about 25% of it closed down.
To that she replied a wall won't work. Again, resisting gagging on the MSM spewing from her mouth, I replied that many countries around the world have walls that have worked. Israel for example has reported a 100% reduction in terrorist attacks since erecting their wall, Yuma, AZ reports a 90 some-odd % drop in crime since their sector of the border wall went up, etc., etc., etc. After that, the look in her eye made me realize the pill was in her mouth...now to massage it down her throat..."remember why you don't like camping?" "Yeah, snakes, bugs, and creepy crawlies get in." "And that doesn't happen with our house because it has nice well built WALLS."
As time goes on, the MSM gets so far outside of any kind of realistic reality, even Trump haters are able to see the ridiculousness of what they present as facts worthy of the news. So MSM, please keep it up. If you can help me red-pill my wife, an avid Trump hater, you can help red-pill anybody!!!!
