Abbott, DeSantis, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Jim Jordan . . they’ve all learned to pander to the masses for money, often time using completely/partially bogus causes like Dr Seuss, Cancel Culture etc.
Abbott wants to stay in power, so he cooked up “build the wall,” but can actually have taxpayers pay for it, especially taxpayers being asked to not use their ovens for fear of blackouts . . so . . Bannon-style he will go with private donations
