      Again, another comment attacking him for attacking the wall but not disputing any of his actual points. Two years after John Oliver's commentary, Kellyanne Conway announced that Donald Trump "discovered" (her word) that he cannot actually have a two thousand mile wall along the border due to obstacles.

    Demented Don has a border wall fetish. He should be more concerned about getting Melania a chastity belt. It would be just about as effective. The wall would not keep people out of the country and a chastity belt would not keep dicks out of his whore Melania.

    Spoiler alert! In January 2018 Trump started backing away from a two thousand mile wall and is talking about a wall only in certain areas. Only his fans are surprised by this as John Oliver's video spotlighted the obstacles in building an actual two thousand mile wall and those obstacles are not going away.

    John Oliver is barely a comedian who lacks the ability to discuss this with logic. His one-sided answers to his one-sided questions are not close to being funny. How is billions of wasted dollars funny to you? Oliver is complaining about a 12 billion dollar wall, that is truly a drop-in-a-bucket compared to California’s debt currently over 425 BILLION dollars. Where did that money go John? and why do they continue with policies the state cannot afford. Why should the rest of the country pay for California’s mistakes. If California alone would pay for the wall, maybe in a few decades after their spending rampage, they could afford their own state.
    Why is this John? Could it be the Democrats want voters who will continue to vote them in so long as they get FREE stuff? If we were to allow people in our Country who could speak our language, loved our country and had the willingness to be productive in our society, it would be different. Through tax revenue they would pay, it would be worth allowing them in. However they are nothing more than a tax burden which we cannot afford. They don’t want to live in America, they want to create a new Mexico because they can’t control their own country. Mr Oliver, how much do you make? Do you lock your doors at night? why? How many illegal aliens do you allow to sleep on your living room sofa or even in your basement? I’m sure you lock your doors at night and you don’t allow anyone to take free refuge in your home. If you think it’s a good idea, why don’t YOU pay for them. The taxes you pay doesn’t come close to paying for the amount of these people coming over in one day. Oh but it’s okay so long as “someone else” is supporting them. Your apparently a socialist, so I urge you to move to Venezuela and set up shop. I think you’d like it there.
    There has been NO society in the history of mankind who has allowed people to arrive in their territory for the sole purpose of draining their economy, NONE. Now I’m going to play the liberal card, if you disagree with me, you must be a Socialist. Contribute to our economy by coming here legally or go home. DACA, sorry kids, since when am I responsible for an ignorant parent’s decision? Why don’t you buy me a new car and a house so I can live on your money like you seem to suggest our country does. Never mind that I didn’t work for it, why should I work if someone is going to take care of me for nothing. Where’s the incentive to work? John Oliver is going to support me. I would truly love to have been able to rebuild Japan after the Tsunami, or better yet, Texas or Florida after the floods. why don’t I? Unlike California, I realize I can not afford it. Maybe I should take out a huge loan and have the rest of the country pay for it whether they want to or not. Sorry folks, this can happen no more, California liberals must realize the well is dry and the rest of the country is not willing to help people who won’t help themselves and spreads anti-American propaganda whenever or wherever they can. It’s nothing to do with whether I am a “mean” person or not, the fact is, we simply can’t afford it, simple as that. Listen to yourself at 5:13, “People love it when you make them pay for shit they don’t want”. Then at 6:06, the Mexican President says we should pay for the wall, not that there shouldn’t be a wall, only that they are not going to pay for it. Back to you John, I watched your video but failed to hear you address a serious problem, only half as jokes, your a piece of work.
    I saw a video of an illegal alien stating this country was never great. Hello, We are the envy of the world. Where else on earth can someone be accepted into another’s home and disrespect them on a daily basis? Eat their food, live on their income, enjoy the luxuries and freedom of no other country in the world, yet still talk crap about them 24/7? And we should welcome that? I think NOT.
    I have a great idea for John Oliver, why doesn’t he suggest to his family and neighbors in Erdington, West Midlands, England to spend their hard earned money to pay what he thinks the people of the United States should pay. I think the people in his homeland would welcome draining their bank accounts to ship these people into our country, then pay for them to exist for the next 75 years of their life as well as years afterwords. I think Mr Oliver would not be welcome back home where he should be going anyway.

    The reason for making the wall is to secure our border. Sure there are going to be ways to get over it, but the point of the wall is to make it harder to get over the wall.

      That we don't allow illegal immigrants in, as they destroy society and culture as well as ruining jobs (why pay an American minimum wage when you can pay Jose from Mexico virtually nothing). If they want to go into the USA, or any other country, they have to do it legally through the UN or immigration, or fuck off.

Watch out for the reducing credit for 401Ks and the IRA. I'm from San Diego where several tunnels have been built-for drugs. We already have a wall. My sister-in-law lives in Baja California. She has to cross the border 2 times every day. She and her husband own a company is San Diego. American Citizens.

    - I want the educational standard lowered so all the uneducated can have a better chance.
    - I want the police off the streets and only allowed to respond when they are called. No more safety patrols.
    - I want white hetero men to have %50 of there gross income go to blm and the Indians for the sins of our fathers.
