This Official 'Trump' Plaque on the Southern Border Is a Total Lie, and George Conway Can't Stop Calling Trump Out for It

One of the reasons President Donald Trump is said to be so insistent on building a wall at the southern border is because it would be the ultimate monument to himself.

While Trump himself has never said this, judging from the plaque recently installed among some fencing near California's southern border, his detractors may have a point.

The plaque reads:

"This plaque was installed on October 26, 2018 to commemorate the completion of the first section of  President Trump's border wall."

As it turns out, the portion of "new" wall isn't new at all, but a replacement fence that was approved in 2015—before Donald Trump had even announced his candidacy for President. Now, Trump's false assurances that miles of new wall are being built are immortalized.

Attorney George Conway, husband of Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway, couldn't resist pointing this out on Twitter.

And then one final burn:

At this point, people weren't exactly surprised.

Trump has a pattern of this behavior.

And while the plaque may look pristine now, many don't expect it to stay that way.

But at least Donald got his shiny nameplate.

Republicans seized on the moment as an opportunity to discredit Biden as a candidate, but Fox and Friends cohost Ainsley Earhardt's reaction may be the most deluded yet.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has repeatedly made clear that, after President Donald Trump solicited Ukrainian leaders to announce investigations that personally benefitted him, the decision to launch impeachment proceedings wasn't a political maneuver, but a constitutional mandate.

The move came after years of Trump's supporters, as well as some critics, insisted that impeachment would be political suicide for the Democrats.

Since shortly after the inquiry's announcement in September, support for impeachment outweighed its oppositon as more revelations surfaced of Trump's dealings with Ukraine, but his 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale attempted to show that Pelosi's move to impeach would lose Democrats their House majority.

The House Judiciary Committee, in its public impeachment hearing against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, consulted four constitutional scholars for greater insight to the legal implications of the President's Ukraine scandal—and whether they merit impeachment.

Three witnesses, called by Democrats, each made compelling arguments for the articles of impeachment with which Trump could be charged.

George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley—invited by Republicans—was the lone dissenter.
