Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer, in conjunction with Donald Trump’s (r) border wall speech, last night via Twitter:

Blaine Luetkemeyer @RepBlaine
President Trump’s mission to thwart illegal immigration, gang violence, crime, drugs & human trafficking is in the best interest of all Americans. I support @POTUS mission to secure our border & keep our citizens safe.

I hope my colleagues will keep our promise #SecureOurBorder
7:07 PM – 8 Jan 2019

Some of the responses:

We all know his wall (which he wants us to now pay for) is not the answer. Most drugs that come thru our southern border come thru ports of entry. Less crime is committed by immigrants. If you were that concerned about our safety you would pass common sense gun laws. Next!

Don’t you have banker meeting to ignore your constituents at?

We do not want the stupid wall which he said Mexico was paying for anyway!!! No wall. No shutdown. Open the government NOW. You are complicit. #TrumpShutdown

I support opening the government and border security. Let me know when the pesos arrive for the fence

You represent my state, it’s a waste of money! Read the statistics! Open the government and stop putting federal workers in the middle of your childish games!

Here comes Blaine with the copy and paste tweet straight from the @GOP handout.

Ouch.

Unfollow, even though you are my supposed representative.

Such an empty, copy and pasted response, Blaine. I expected something deeper, really driving home your xenophobic point. Then I realized that this isn’t about easing regulations on financial institutions, and I understood why.

I guess we can all take that to the bank.
