LIST: Trump's wall would cost less than these federal programs
This is where your tax dollars are being spent
On Friday's episode of "Pat Gray Unleashed," Pat Gray, Keith Malinak, and Jeffy Fisher highlighted a list of federal programs that Democrats will fund while refusing to support President Donald Trump's border wall.
A list published Wednesday by Grabien News contributor Tom Elliott highlighted federal programs that Democrats have supported and funded over the years. Meanwhile, President Trump has asked Congress for $5.7 billion to fund his border wall project — only about 1/10 of 1 percent of the 2018 annual budget of $4.173 trillion — but Dems have rejected the president's request.
Below is a small sampling of the items Democrats have decided are more important to spend your tax dollars on than border security.
The List (partial)
Rural Utility Service. A program once used to bring electricity to rural area communities is now used — in theory — to bring broadband internet to cities with a population of less than 20,000. Here's the problem, there is no data to prove that a single recipient of services from this program exists.
Sugar Subsidies. Congress would save a total of $6 billion per year by eliminating sugar subsidies.
Community Development Grants. Over five years, the elimination of this program would save $15 billion.
The United Nations. The U.S. donated $10 billion to the U.N. in 2016, according to the Government Waste Book.
Waste, Fraud, and Abuse. Congress spends $137 billion annually on "payment errors" — including fraud within programs like Medicare, Social Security, and Medicaid.
Boost Intimacy And Trust Among Transgender Women And Their Partners. Americans pay $613,634 per year to support this program.
Grants To Help Hipsters Stop Smoking And Blog About it. $5 million annual price tag.
Pat kept the mood light as he read the list, but his sarcasm flowed. Watch the video above for details.

On Monday's episode of "Here's the Deal," host Deneen Borelli discussed the assortment of strange and twisted reports that have recently surfaced about Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke, the former Texas congressman who announced his candidacy on Thursday for the 2020 presidential race.
A Reuters report published Friday revealed shocking details about the Democratic contender, including his involvement with the "Cult of the Dead Cow," a notorious group of computer hackers, and his penchant for penning morbid fiction such as a fantasy about running over happy children.
Deneen shared a passage which read:
One day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles…. This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams.
As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head.
"Beto is a strange character, and I mean strange in a very twisted way," asserted Deneen. "Maybe it's just me, but I'm thinking we don't need weirdo Beto in the White House."
