Verrrry Scarrrry: 1958 TV Show Has Character Named Trump That Sells a Town on a “Wall”

This is pretty funny.  I mean funny odd, not funny “ha, ha”.   Somebody found an episode of an obscure late 50s western series in which a conman character named “Dr. Walter Trump, DU MC SSR” — or “Doctor of the Universe, Master of Cometry, Student of Stellar Reactions” talked up an apocalypse for this town that could only be prevented by his “wall.”  It’s “The Twilight Zone” meets “The Music Man.”  How nuts is this?

What do we do?” a someone asks. “How do we save ourselves?”

“You ask: How do you build that wall?” Trump responds. “You ask, and I’m here to tell you.”
