The world's oldest known wall is 11,500 years old

Archaeologists believe that wheels for transportation came into use about 5200 years ago.

The oldest known wall is probably like the grand canyon or some'it lol
Jupiter is a wall, too. Actually, Jupiter is also a wheel...technically.

Edit* Fuck it, everything is a wall and wheel if you're brave enough!

The man is incredibly stupid. I have personally never seen a man who knows so little.
He MIGHT be the dumbest person alive. He isn't interested in anything or anyone but himself and i doubt he actually finished a school that his daddy didn't pay for. He's exactly what the world needs less of. People like him won't be missed. Ever. Not even by his wife and kids. Everybody on the planet will be happy when this piece of useless shit is gone. Please let it be soon.

I'm glad it's not just me that has trouble parsing what that statement is meant to say. I've read it a couple of times and I'm not understanding.
That's because it doesn't make logical sense. He is implying that "walls" and "the wheel" are eternally perfect in use because we still use both despite them being "invented" millennia ago. It's a non-sequitur mixed with an appeal to antiquity.

He's trying to say that walls are old and they've worked in the past so they're going to work in this specific context. And he's comparing it to wheels because...they're also old and worked in the past?

I mean, it's staggeringly fucking stupid, but at least he's trying to form a thought.

A knife is older than a fork. And I looked, and every single kitchen out there, even the really expensive ones that Trump Hotel uses, and believe me they are expensive, I said, "Do they all have knives?" Yes. "Oh, I thought that was medieval."

So he researched Masonry to build City Walls before The Wheel, big deal. Aqueducts are so important in the early game and chariots suck.
Though I guess he's also the kind of player who would research Bronze Working first so he can go straight to Currency.

Remember in medieval times when they were using early guns and were all, like, "you know not might be a good time to be able to transport things over large distances."

Listen, in a high barbarian area Bronze Working is invaluable

I’m going to imagine that Trump actually asked a Secret Service agent if their cars have wheels, and then laugh at the image of the agent’s face as he struggled to determine if Trump was serious.

Gonna be honest though I think 99% of people on the street don't know this kind of stuff. Left/right/academic/working class.

It's funny he opened his mouth about it, though.

Degenerate orange blood clot a low key anti-vaxxer. As such is this really surprising? For him it is about selling a product and in the moment delivering the sales pitch, the object of sale in question supersedes everything else in the world.

I'd reckon he would have an entertaining answer for how old the earth is.
