Underhanded talent

“Underhanded talent”, Monterey Herald – Sent in on Oct. 6, 2023, not published.

President Biden seems to like deceiving everyone on the political spectrum. He had promised voters never to build “another foot” of wall along the border of Mexico. Now he just turned around 180 degrees and avowed to do the exact opposite. He has authorized the construction of a new section of the border wall in Texas. But wait a minute, there is a catch. The proposed wall will only be extended for 20 miles. Is this some type of joke? Whether you favor a border wall or not, Biden has managed to offend both sides of the issue. That takes some really despicable underhanded talent.
