Once upon a time, medieval armies laying siege to castles used catapults to hurl rocks at the walls. Now, drug smugglers laying siege to America are using the ancient devices to hurl fentanyl across the Mexican border.

<facepalm>

For all I know, drug smugglers may use catapults (rather than drones). But that's far from a siege.

A siege is when you surround an enemy city (not a country), with armed forces so they cannot receive supplies, or be reinforced, and will therefore be starved into submission. No one has ever laid siege to a country, or could be capable of doing so. There have been blockades to prevent supplies from arriving by sea, and some have been successful.

Seriously, if a few drug smugglers can lay siege to America, then you have bigger problems than drug addiction to worry about.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

He tried to get the judge to put a gag order on the case because its so embarrassing to him. Judge refused. lol

His ex wife wants to vote
