Yup. You read that right. In an effort to cast aspersions on President Trump using tariffs against Mexico to curtail illegal immigration, CNN Business reported yesterday that these tariffs would force Chipotle to raise the price of burritos by five cents.
Five whole cents!
Why, we can’t be forced to pay five cents more for a burrito! That’s, well, that’s just like Hitler!!!
I mean, sure. Illegal immigration cost this country $116 Billion in 2017.
But come on! That’s nothing. Big whoop!
Don’t you realize that by forcing Mexico to stop the population of Central America from trudging across its soil to enter our country illegally might cost you five cents more for a burrito at Chipotle?!
We can’t stand for that!
President Trump must be some kind of dictator-authoritarian-just like Hitler monster for making us pay five cents more for a burrito just so we can save a measly one hundred and sixteen billion dollars a year!
Well, that just tears it! Let’s flood the country with illegals, burden our schools, hospitals, public services, and of course the taxpayers. All so Chipotle customers can save a nickel!!!— Dianny 🇺🇸(@DiannyRants) June 3, 2019
You know how many nickels are in $116 Billion? Two trillion, three hundred and twenty billion.
That’s right. Illegal immigration is costing Americans two trillion, three hundred and twenty billion nickels every year.
If the best CNN can come up with to terrorize Americans into keeping our border a sieve is paying five cents more for a friggin’ burrito, they must think we’re blithering idiots.
Look, we know why they’re fearmongering over these tariffs. It doesn’t take a genius to figure it out.
These tariffs just might get Mexico to stop illegals from traipsing across their country into ours.
And the last thing these sneering elitists want is for President Trump to succeed in stopping illegals from flooding our country.
They want him to fail. But more importantly, they want the country to fail.
That’s why they love that the Democrats in Congress won’t take the crisis at the border seriously.
It isn’t that they don’t think it’s a crisis. They know it is.
But it’s a crisis that works to their advantage.
It works to Mexico’s advantage too.
Mexico gains financially from our porous border. So by imposing a tariff, President Trump is hitting Mexico where it hurts.
You gotta admit, what Trump is doing is a genius move.
And as Jesse Kelly said last week:
”There is no way Donald Trump is going to get help securing the Southern border from a broken, horrifically corrupt government full of criminals who’d rather take bribes than do something for the good of their country.
”So I see why he turned to Mexico instead.”
But howling like wounded poodles over a Chipotle burrito costing five cents more seems like a profoundly stupid way to try and turn public opinion away from securing our border.
