Barbed wire

It got a single sentence in the Associated Press coverage of the latest rallies. But it deserves greater attention. In Bozeman, Montana, November 3, an American president spoke of the beauty of barbed wire at the U.S.–Mexico border:

“And I noticed all that beautiful barbed wire going up today. Barbed wire, used properly, can be a beautiful sight.”
Sadism as entertainment. Go to The Washington Post and watch and listen for yourself. I’d say God help us, but God doesn’t vote. So vote.

OMG, Emmett Till comes to mind.
Obscene cruelty.

Death camps, interment camps. I could never have imagined an American president talking in this way.
