Dumb News Alert: Republicans propose bill to construct Wall from “game of thrones” at border with Mexico

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he was watching the hit HBO show with Rep. Louie Gohmert when they realized that they had the perfect solution to their “immigration” problem. “If a civilization with technology from the middle ages can build it, then surely we in the 20th century can accomplish the same thing. All we need is ice and snow.”

Critics have pointed out that the climate at the Mexico-U.S. border does not provide enough snow or ice for the wall to be built or maintained. Gohmert called this “Global Warming propaganda” and that it was just a particularly long summer right now but claimed “Winter is coming”.

Critics have also questioned the need for a wall in these modern times. Can people be superior to other people simply because they were born on one side of a border? What even is a border? Should we be turning away refugees or those seeking a better life for themselves and their families? Was the United States not built on the idea that everyone is welcome and equal?

Gohmert was asked for a response, but he just drooled and called himself a “man of the night’s watch”.
