And Playskool’s going to pay for it.
8-year old Ky. girls climbs it in a minute.
President Trump walked back his beleaguered Border Wall today. Last week the President told reporters in San Diego that the government tested wall prototypes with “20 mountain climbers” who concluded the design going up along the U.S.-Mexico border “was the one that was hardest to climb.”
Trump said the climbers invited to participate were “very good” – “some of them were champions” – and the bollard style barrier “can’t be climbed. This is very, very hard,” the president said.
Meet Lucy Hancock, an 8-year-old from Kentucky. She is not a registered Democrat and except for some pretty serious lobbying for a later bed time, has no political affiliation. Lucy , is proving her wall climbing chops.
The girl’s mother posted a video to Facebook this week of the third-grader scaling an exact replica of the 18-foot wall going up along miles of the southern border, and it took just over a minute for the youngster to crest the structure.
“Remember that border wall replica build by Rick Weber for a competition next weekend in the Red River Gorge?” Karla Hancock posted. “We were able to help perform preliminary testing of the belay system this weekend. Lucy declared it an easy 5.7.”
President Trump immediately tweeted that he thought a Border Playground sounded a lot better. Nancy Pelosi welcomed the move and has agreed to drop the Impeachment Inquiry if she is given naming rights over the new play space.
There is no truth to the rumor that she wants to call it “Congress.”
