The wall is clearly and legitimately a device for defense of the United States. Clearly, using defense appropriations, not earmarked for other specified programs, is different from the idiotic non-parallels you and your fellow challenged logicians are suggesting.
Sure, your future communists can declare a climate emergency and redirect funds appropriated to the Department of Climate Hysteria or the Unicorn Preservation Fund. Zie can pull money from Health and Human Services and the CDC budget at the risk of operating within view of the voters rather than skulking behind the scenes as usual. Go ahead. Have at it.
Or you next elected despot could suck another trillion dollars into a slush fund, like Obama did, and parcel it out over years to political friends and operatives.
I find it funny that every time Trump wants to bypass the Dems, they trot out the boogyman of "We will do it, too", even after they've demonstrated that that is entirely how they govern, anyway.
Your weak little, "boo" doesn't scare anyone.
