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.

Rep. Francis Rooney (R-OK) on Friday signaled that he was taking House Democrats' impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump far more seriously than many of his Republican colleagues.

During an interview with CNN's Poppy Harlow, Rooney said he was very disturbed at the president's efforts to prove a debunked conspiracy theory about Ukraine purportedly being behind the hack of the Democratic National Committee in 2016, despite the fact that all evidence that has been uncovered points directly to Russia as the true culprit.

Harlow then asked him what he made about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) comment that "all roads" in the Ukraine scandal lead back to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Published

Appearing on CNN's "New Day," Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna (CA), who sits on the House Oversight Committee, said he and other Democrats have enough in hand to vote on the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Speaking with host John Berman, Khanna was pressed on what he had learned behind closed doors from former and current officials working in Trump's administration, saying he couldn't divulge any more than has previously been released but that there was enough there to raise serious issues about Trump's continuing as president.

Pressed by host Berman whether lawmakers have enough to proceed with impeachment, the California Democrat didn't skip a beat and said yes.
