There's a GoFundMe campaign raising money to donate for the Trump border wall and they're up to $10 million in just four days. To counter that, someone started a GoFundMe to buy ladders for people who want to climb over Trump's border wall. The ladder campaign is up to $56,000, not quite as high, but ladders are also a lot cheaper than building miles of wall.
The ladder fundraiser was started by Charlotte Clymer and the original idea to create this campaign stems from the thought process of an unknown person who goes by the name "HoarseWisperer" on Twitter. Sounds exactly like the kind of name you want someone to have when they're on a crowded subway whispering naughty things in a hoarse voice while your ears bleed at the thought of what's happening.
Clymer stressed that Americans should focus on building better communities, but just incase the wall is built, they'll have some ladders ready if anyone wants to climb over.
Clymer points out some basic math about the funding of the border wall and how long it would take if it was done solely on donations.
"And even though at a rate of $1.7 million daily, it would take their fund about 35 years to raise the $21.7 billion that Trump's own Dept. of Homeland Security says would be needed to build said wall, we wanna make sure ladders are ready to send over to our undocumented friends and help them."
Although, Trump just got approved for just over $5 billion for border security, but it's likely to get voted down when that decision reaches the Senate, because the Republicans just don't have enough swinging Democrats willing to say yes to building the wall. Chuck Schumer will probably be blamed for a government shutdown, people will spend the week not worrying about politics anyway, and after the New Years things will pick back up and no one will have actually cared one way or the other because nothing will be getting done next week in the first place.
Clymer also mentions what they'll do with the donations if they don't meet their goal, and then throws a little shade at the campaign raising money for the wall.
"Should we not reach our goal--or should they (ahem) not reach theirs--all funds raised will go to the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) , a Texas-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees."
The old saying was always if you build it, then they will come. The new saying is this: if you build a wall, that's what people have ladders for!
There is but one concern. A ladder to go up one side, but how will people get down on the other side? Jump? Swing a second ladder down? Then how does someone avoid border patrol? What if border patrol kicks the ladder?
Seems like there might need to be a trampoline dropped down on the other side where people can jump on it, then hop over the border patrol and get a running start out into the wilderness known as America.
