21 Funniest, Savage Memes About Trump’s Precious Wall

Fam, nobody is emotionally prepared for another presidential campaign season, but nobody is unraveling in such spectacular fashion as President Trump. Of course, everyone expects him to be the Republican pick (if he isn’t impeached or indicted first), and Trump is doing everything he can to appeal to the base that elected him. We’re two years into his presidency and there has been no progress on his biggest campaign promise: Build The Wall.

In order to get congressional approval to build the most useless piece of infrastructure our country needs, Trump has created a fake crisis at the border. He’s gone so far as to declare a national emergency, quickly followed by a weekend spent golfing at Mar-o-Lago. The internet quickly spit out the most ruthless, hilarious memes our world deserves. This is how we cope.

First, we point out the obvious:

Photoshop is our friend. When reality is fugly, at least Adobe makes it funnier. Honestly, though, a majority of Americans are against the building of a border wall along the southern border.

Then, we romance:

Yup, that would get me, too. “I’m going to write our names in The Wall.” *shiver* No one wants their legacy attached to an ancient system of border security that has failed time and time again. Move on, Trump. The border wall is an ill-conceived solution to a problem that does not exist.

While Americans are screaming over our taxes, Mexicans are chilling. ????

Remember when Trump said he was going to make Mexico pay for The Wall? ????Now that that’s over, the joke’s on Trump and the world is laughing.

Because, truthfully, The Wall does nothing to address the reasons people are seeking asylum in the first place.

Oh, and all of this is pure populism and nationalism at its worst. Every era has a scapegoat and this era of authoritarianism is targeting Muslims and immigrants, especially Central American immigrants.

It is a laughable (and very expensive) bandaid solution to a fake problem.

We’re in peak low years of illegal immigration. All of this is fake news to the max. There is no crisis at the border other that the crisis being created at the border by the Trump administration. All this presidency has been able to do is tell people they aren’t allowed in breaking international asylum laws.

The best memes point to the hypocrisy of it all.

Liiiike, Flint still doesn’t have clean water and we’re going to use billions of tax dollars to essentially fuel a political campaign for Trump’s re-election? Nope, no thank you, te boté.

Some of the most viral ‘memes’ are just the American consciousness at full blast.

Forcing Americans who serve the federal government to have to go to work without getting paid until POTUS ends his tantrum is not in the service of the American people. That’s right. Trump forced a government shutdown to get his wall funding, the longest shutdown in U.S. history, and lost. All he managed to do was make people’s lives worse, over the holidays, for his vanity project.

Let’s never forget the exposé on Trump’s own undocumented employees.

The New York Times did an excellent exposé that featured Trump’s personal house cleaner, an undocumented immigrant from Central America who he was on jovial terms with until he launched his campaign. They eventually fired her after he became President.

TBH, some of the best memes play off Trump’s childish temperament.

The American people and the rest of the world cannot stop laughing at Trump and his administration. Honestly. Look up major international speeches the president has made and listen closely for all the laughs and uncomfortable silences. They are aplenty.

We laugh at any meme comparing Trump to a Cheeto though. ????

Quiere llorar! Quiere llorar! Quiere llorar! Poor man is sad because the American people continue to be against his border wall. It is not okay. It is not going to work. It is a waste of taxpayer dollars and there is no emergency.

The frailty of Trump’s ego is in open season.

Bruise Trump’s ego? He’ll assert his power to get you fired, deported, or just straight mock you in front of crowds of people.

The bottom line here is that Trump’s campaign promises are all a fallacy.

Points to him for pulling out every possible card and failing anyway. Max, this is what we can expect for a wall. 

So liike, what has POTUS even done?

Guy has the highest turnover rate than any other President, meaning he can barely accomplish the bare minimum of his presidential duties.

It’s like, we know you exist because, DONALD TRUMP IS PRESIDENT. But it’s different when we come face to face. It makes my face do crazy things.

We good, now. We good.

So much cheaper. AOC, you going to submit the proposal o que?

What about someone who is clinically obsessed with turning a social construct into an actual physical structure? I’m weary.

So gun control isn’t a national emergency, even though children are now routinely practicing ‘active shooter’ drills along with natural disaster drills? That should not be a naturally occurring event. 

No walls on stolen land.

This is all colonialism at its best. White people stealing land, stealing power and pointing to brown people as ‘the other’ and the threat. Plot twist: America is a threat to humanity.

And then there are the pragmatists who truly have no f*cks to give about a wall.

CREDIT: @coritamexi / Instagram

There are people who exist who have lukewarm feelings about immigration and are raging about the pothole they’re driving over cada mañana. Fair enough. At least that pothole is real.

Then there’s this pot of gold:

CREDIT: @latinorebels / Instagram

A video was uncovered of Trump giving a commencement speech in 2004 during which he literally says, “If there’s a concrete wall in front of you, go through it, go over it, go around it. Do whatever you have to do, but get over that wall.” ✊✊✊We can’t even credit Photoshop. That was all Trump.

It’s safe to say we’re all safe from this national emergency.

But not so safe from Trump’s delusions. He won’t acknowledge climate change or California burning up in flames, but he sees a Mexican and orders ICE to pepper spray them. We are not a threat. You are, POTUS.

This Man Posts A Video Highlighting Mexican ‘Avatar The Last Airbender’ Characters And It’s So Accurate

@nacho_libro_ / TikTok

Who here loves “Avatar The Last Airbender”? It is one show that has been around for so long that the fanbase can only grow. The show is a fantasy ride that will take you to some of the most imaginative places. However, one fan realized something no one else did: some of the characters are Mexicans. Here’s what he found.

Roku

Roku, a.k.a. “El Espiritu,” is one of the Mexicanos rocking it in the Fire Nation. Roku’s memory served as a guiding force for Aang along his long and storied journey. It is like that one compa you have who is always able to help you out of a jam. You never know how he will do it but he always does.

Sokka

You might know Sokka as the defacto leader of the Water Nation for a time. When he was younger, Sokka wanted to join his father in the war. He tried his best and left with all of the men to join the fight. However, he was too young to fight and was sent back but was the oldest male and became the leader of the tribe. Much like that primo we all have who is the oldest of the primos and teaches us everything. Where would we be without that primo?

Zuko

Zuko was born into the royal family of the Fire Nation. The prince abdicated his throne and lived in exile. For years, Zuko tried his best to catch the long-lost Avatar to get back into his kingdom. We all know that one friend that is trying to make up for something. At the end of the day, he is a good dude but he just has some things that he has to work out.

“Avatar the Last Airbender” fans are asking for more.

Credit: @nacho_libro_ / TikTok

There are so many more people that can be made into Mexican airbenders. The first three are already a success for the TikTok user with more than 234,000 views. Fans want more and it just seems like the perfect time to create more.

And it wasn’t just the setup.

The TikTok user came through with his joke. Not only was the haircut so on point, he included a bunch of easter eggs. One of them was the América jersey that left some viewers screaming. Watch the video here and enjoy.

Julio Torres Gives Us An Update On What He And His Shapes Have Been Up To In Quarantine

Julio Torres Gives Us An Update On What He And His Shapes Have Been Up To In Quarantine

Paper / YouTube

Julio Torres is one of our favorite comedians. We first learned about him when he started to share his unique comedy on “The Late Show starring Jimmy Fallon.” Torres’s delivery is what gives him comedy that extra punch.

“I am Julio and this is what my shapes and I have been doing during the quarantine.”

Like all of us regular people, Julio Torres has been in quarantine to combat COVID-19. His quarantine included him being stuck with people he thought he knew well. Fortunately, Torres gave a little video to Paper Magazine to let us all know how he is doing in quarantine and what he and his shapes have been up to since the quarantine started.

The one shape that has been doing the most is Krisha.

Yes. That Krisha. According to Torres, she has really gone wild since she was forced into a quarantine. Not in a good or bad way. She is just really doing the most and it is all catching up with her. But don’t worry. Krisha is still filled with confidence. She has an OnlyFans page and is supposed to be donating the proceeds to charity. However, we are still in the dark about the charity.

“Krisha, you know, Krisha, true to her Scorpio nature, has been… I mean, I don’t want to generalize on all Scorpios, but she’s been waking up at around 2 p.m. and then being awake for a little bit,” Torres says. “Then taking a nap. Then waking up again and then taking another nap from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. Then waking up again and going to bed for good at 5 in the morning. She hasn’t been removing her blue contacts lenses the whole time, which is causing her this infection I think. At first we thought that it was something serious but it was just an eye infection caused by her not moving her blue contact lenses which I didn’t even know that she wore till I was quarantined with her.”

To be fair, we all assumed a lot about Krisha when we saw her in the HBO special.

As for her love life, well, let’s just say that Krisha is not where she wants to be. Who would have expected that being in quarantine would be so detrimental to your love life? Seems Krisha might be the only person who didn’t realize that she would be lonelier than normal at this time.

“She has been DM’ing up a storm just like flirting all day, which is great, but then when they don’t respond quickly enough,” Torres says. “I can tell when her suitors are not responding quick enough because she’ll just like throw her phone. Then she’ll look at me and goes, ‘What?!’ So, that’s what Krisha’s been up to.”
