Surprise, Surprise. Trump Has A NEW Plan To Pay For Border Wall


What’s one of the first things that President-elect Donald Trump said he’d do if elected?

“BUILD THE WALL!” Yes, yes, yes, we’ve heard all the different variations of this. However, he’s always vowed that Mexico “would pay for the wall, they just don’t know it yet.” Now, in typical Trump form, he’s going back on his word.

CNN reports that Trump and his team is asking Congress to make taxpayers fork over roughly $10 billion dollars to build the barrier. That means we’re going to pay for a structure that a majority of U.S. citizens don’t want.

Once good ol’ Trump saw the headlines (from the news outlet he doesn’t watch, apparently), he took to Twitter (naturally) to disclose the truth… *cough, cough.*

Ohhhh, so first we’ll pay for the wall, and when it’s finished, then Mexico will send a check over for $10 billion. That makes sense. It’s some sort of layaway plan. Right.

Mexico, who’s currently facing a terrible gasoline shortage, will somehow pay that huge bill despite President Enrique Peña Nieto already making his own promise that they’ll never pay for the wall.

So who’s really going to pay for this? This is starting to sound like the most awkward date ever.

The Spurs Mascot Kind Of Nailed Mariah Carey’s NYE Performance

The San Antonio Spurs just took shade throwing to a whole other level.

The San Antonio Spurs Coyote took to the court for a very special and exceptionally shady half-time show. In case you didn’t already know, Mariah Carey has been caught up in a bit of controversy tied to her New Year’s Eve performance in New York City. While Carey was performing during New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, she experienced some technical difficulties with her backing track and ended up walking around the stage and talking to the crowd more than singing.

Here’s a quick recap of Carey’s NYE performance.

Only a queen wouldn’t care about this kind of performance.

This mascot really didn’t hold anything back during the shade throwing.

Mariah Carey hasn’t entertained the performance with a response, but she did tweet some encouraging words that she is clearly living by.

Get it, queen. That’s how you encourage some self-love.
