Border Closure Would Bring On the Avopocalypse

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.

The Guardian knows how to get straight to the heart of things:

The insanity needs to stop. We have our own avocado supply here in California, which will be seized and stored in government warehouses in case of emergency, but what about the rest of you? What will you do when your avocados run out?

But I guess it doesn’t matter. Trump is not going to close the border.┬╣ It’s just his usual idiotic blather, like going to the moon or banning European cars. The man really does like to blather, doesn’t he?

┬╣Probability = 90 percent because, in the end, you really never know with Trump, do you?

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
