In a hilarious late-night CNN panel, Republican commentator Rick Wilson lead the political panel into laughter as the experts mocked President Donald Trump for his recent lie about the U.S./Mexico border wall being erected.
An earlier devolved into absolute chaos when Trump ally Stephen Moore tried to blame the Democrats for not giving Trump the money to build his wall that he claimed he was already building. Wilson, however, took that to a whole new level.
“The fundamental promise is ‘I will keep the brown people away from you,'” Wilson said about Trump’s “wall” promise. “The modality is ‘I will build a wall. Mexico will pay for it.’ There is no wall. There is no funding for a wall. He’s got these four pieces of concrete, sample sections in California, which I call ‘Douchenge.’ It’s a symbol for these people, these suckers that believe the wall is real.”
He claimed that some are seeing photos of the prototypes claiming the wall is nearly finished being built.
“‘It’s there!’ This is an alternate reality bubble,” Wilson continued. “This is a key promise to his base. This is something he can’t walk away from. The desperation of that made me feel like he is trying to woo Ann Coulter back into his loving arms.’ It was an astounding weak moment from a guy. He’s so loose with the truth to begin with ,that it seems pathetic almost today.”
“Rick Wilson, speaking for the Republican establishment,” CNN political editor Mark Preston laughed.
All host Don Lemon could do is laugh and fan himself with his cue card.

‘Not surprised at all that the president sides with the white nationalists’: Native American Congresswoman
One of the first two Native America women blasted President Donald Trump for siding with white nationalists on Saturday.
Following the fatal "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville in 2017, Trump claimed there were "fine people" on both sides when he defended the alt-Right and Neo-Nazi event.
Two years later, Trump has gone even further, blaming only the anti-fascist activists confronting far-right marching in Portland, Oregon in a way that reminds many of the invasion of Charlottesville.
Rep. Deb Haaland (D-NM) was asked about Trump's tweet by CNN's Ana Cabrera.
Heather Heyer’s mom says things have gotten worse since Charlottesville — but she has a solution
CNN's Ana Cabrera on Saturday interviewed Susan Bro, the mother of Heather Heyer. Her daughter was murdered by a white nationalist terrorist during the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.
"When you watch what’s happening in Portland, thankfully everything right now is peaceful, but does it sort of give you that knee-jerk reaction where your hackles kind of go up, just given everything your family has been through?" Cabrera asked.
"My hackles don’t really go down anymore," Bro replied. "I am constantly tracking these things around the country as they happen. Yeah, I think after two years ago, mine will never completely go down again."
