Brian Karem, the White House correspondent for Playboy, uncorked an angry rant against President Donald Trump and his proposed border wall on Thursday.
During a CNN panel discussing the government shutdown, Karem declared that Trump’s wall was now just a symbol of his massive ego and had nothing to do with actual border security.
“This whole issue is just a crock from start to finish,” he said. “He picked it up on the campaign trail as something to appease the masses and play to his base. It’s not going to stop terrorism, it’s not going to be 2,000 miles long as originally planned, it’s not going to be see-through, it’s not going to be eco-friendly, it’s not going to be slats or heads on pikes or a beaded curtain, or anything else! You can’t wall that border!”
He then pointed out that drug cartels already had multiple ways, including large networks of underground tunnels, to bypass the wall and bring narcotics across the border.
“It’s garbage!” he thundered. “This whole issue is a monument to his self-aggrandizement, it always has been. It will never stop terrorism, it won’t stop drugs… This issue is the biggest crock on the agenda of the president, it always has been.”

‘Believe what you see’: Dem senator explains how ‘Rudy Giuliani is effectively a Russian asset’
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) on Tuesday asserted that President Donald Trump's personal attorney is "effectively a Russian asset."
Murphy made the comments about Rudy Giuliani during an interview on CNN after the president's lawyer attempted to smear Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, by planting a story about alleged corruption in the New York Post.
"I can confirm that [Russia's] campaign of misinformation and propaganda and interference is bigger, is broader and is more problematic than it was in 2016," Murphy told CNN's Jim Sciutto. "The Russians this time around have decided to cultivate U.S. citizens as assets. They are attempting to spread their propaganda in the mainstream media."
‘Bad politics’: CNN reporter stunned Trump is finishing the campaign by attacking Dr. Fauci
President Donald Trump on Monday spent much of his day attacking the nation's top infectious disease expert even as the seven-day average for new COVID-19 cases in the United States surged past 55,000 a day.
CNN reporter Abby Phillip said on Tuesday that she couldn't make any sense of why the president is publicly feuding with Fauci with just two weeks left in the 2020 presidential election.
Phillip started out by noting how hard Fauci has worked to try to remain apolitical even as the president has routinely attacked him and disparaged his advice.
