Fox News host stunned by Trump’s non-stop lying about the border wall being built

Published

on

Fox News’ Juan Williams on Wednesday was amazed that President Donald Trump keeps blatantly lying to his supporters about progress that’s being made on building his proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Reacting to Trump’s strange White House rant in which he claimed that “we have options” to build the wall that “most people don’t understand,” Williams said he had absolutely no idea what the president was talking about.

“You try to be respectful but there’s no evidence a wall is being built!” he said. “There’s no contracts! And yet he says these things and you think, ‘Does he know something I don’t know? He’s president, he may.”

Some of Williams’ fellow panelists then tried to defend Trump by saying there was surely some kind of work being done on some kind of wall or fence somewhere along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Williams, however, shut them down by saying, “He said Mexico was going to pay for the wall and this is the American people!”

The other panelists audibly groaned.

In 2012, their network of hardcore libertarian political donors spent $400 million on negative campaign ads intended to destroy government safety nets and defeat Democrats. They want to repeal Obamacare, dismantle labor unions, repeal any environmental law protecting clean water and air, roll back voting rights, privatize Social Security, stop a minimum wage increase and more. They don’t care about destroying the checks and balances in American democracy to get their way.

Put more bluntly the Washington Post reports, "Like an annual holiday gathering where the main goal is to get through the day without a family explosion, one of France’s main objectives as host of this weekend’s Group of Seven summit is to minimize the chances that President Trump will blow it up."
