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.

Moderate Dem lawmaker tells CNN why Trump’s ‘appalling behavior’ changed his mind on impeachment
Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT), a moderate Democrat and a member of the centrist New Democrat Coalition, went on CNN on Tuesday to explain why he has changed his mind and now supports starting an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
In an interview with CNN's John Berman, Himes said that Trump has regularly shown that he doesn't care about obeying the law, as evidenced by his decision to completely shrug off his own Office of Special Counsel's finding that adviser Kellyanne Conway has repeatedly violated the Hatch Act.
"Kellyanne Conway had clearly broken the law and she should be removed from office," Himes said. "And the president said, 'Ah heck, that doesn't matter.'"
9/11 first responder busts Trump for lying about helping them: ‘There’s no meeting’
Appearing in CNN's New Day, two New York City first responders trashed Congress for its foot-dragging over providing funding to help those afflicted by illnesses directly related from the 9/11 attack.
Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, 9/11 first responder John Feal first took shots at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) before getting around to recent comments made by President Donald Trump where he claimed he was having a meeting with representatives of the firefighters and police this week.
In an interview with NBC's Chuck Todd, the president noted the work being done by former "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart to help get legislation pushed through, and said that he is taking a personal interest in the 9/11 victims' plight.
