Now that President Trump's first major move toward keeping brown people out of the United States (namely, the Muslim travel ban) has blown up in his puckered, orange face, people are turning their attention to his other bigly racist initiative: a Mexican border wall whose very construction remains an outrageous pipe dream.

Putting aside the wasteful cost, impossible engineering, utter inefficacy, and widespread denunciations of the idea on a purely moral level, the wall that Trump voters spent a whole year chanting about still seems ridiculous, if for no other reason than that our commander-in-chief is clearly making up everything about it as he goes along. As a result, Twitter is now having a ball coming up with #FakeWallFacts.

Good stuff—but, as usual with Trump, the reality is almost always way stranger, and way worse. Personally, I bet the biggest weakness of the wall will be the plate glass windows we put in so that we don't lose our nice view.
