On Thursday, CNN’s Anderson Cooper mocked President Donald Trump for his flip-flop definition on the word “wall.”
Trump has not backed down from fighting for a wall at the US-Mexico border and has threatened to shut down the government again on February 15th if Congress does not approve funds for his border wall.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly said that she is not supporting Trump’s border wall idea. Cooper called out the president for playing “word games” instead of clearly defining what he wants at the border.
“Today he was back to his word games about whether to call the wall the wall. Not only did the president invent this game, but he also wrote all the rules, he broke them, he changed them, he rewrote them and then he changed them again. A wall is a wall, he says. But he didn’t always seem to think so,” Cooper said.
Trump has referred to the wall as, slats, fences, and even told Democrats they could call the wall “peaches.”
Lets just call them WALLS from now on and stop playing political games! A WALL is a WALL!

“But now a wall is a wall,” Cooper said. “Keeping them honest, the president and his supporters seem to be the only ones who are hung up on what to call this thing that doesn’t even exist.”

"Maybe folks should boycott his show," Tlaib wrote in a tweet on Saturday. "I am tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom.

WATCH: ‘Hero’ walks into middle of Proud Boys protest and says ‘f*ck you’ to each of them
A man became a hero to the internet over the weekend after he was captured on video saying "f*ck you" to members of a group of conservative protesters known as Proud Boys.
In a video that appeared to be from Saturday's protests in Portland, a man can be seen walking into a group of right-wing demonstrators.
"F*ck you," the man says, pointing at an apparent Proud Boys member.
