With the partial government shutdown over President Donald Trump’s demands for border wall funding now on its 21st day, a 60-year-old episode of the 1950s Western series Trackdown has gone viral, thanks to that episode’s villain, a conman named Walter Trump who promised to build a wall to protect a town’s residents from a doomsday scenario.
