In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Surely she was referring to the detention camps (which could actually fit the definition of concentration camps) and not the border itself.

Personally I think any cartoon about AOC is redundant but I think you...like...missed the...like... joke.

Sorry for...like... missing the...like...joke. Last time I checked, no one was climbing fences to get into detention camps.

I honestly don't follow.

The cartoon was factually incorrect - AOC (for all her faults) never claimed America was like a concentration camp. She claimed the detention camps were. So Uncle Sam's comment about people climbing fences makes no sense - they're climbing fences to get into the USA (not a detention camp).

So what's the joke? The cartoon clearly is a criticism of AOC - but it's clearly misrepresenting her words to make its "joke".
