CNN’s Don Lemon typically deals with difficult and intense topics at the top of his weekly show. Wednesday night, however, after a serious opener about Syria and ISIS, Lemon broke into hysterics over President Donald Trump’s flub saying he would build a border wall on Colorado’s border.
“You know why we’re going to win New Mexico? Because they want safety on our border. And they didn’t have it,” said Trump. “And we’re building a wall on the border of New Mexico. And we’re building a wall in Colorado. We’re building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works — you can’t get over, you can’t get under. And we’re building a wall in Texas. And we’re not building a wall in Kansas, but they get the benefit of the walls that we just mentioned. And Louisiana’s incredible.”
The internet unleashed mockery on Trump for the confusion about the president excommunicating New Mexico. Lemon unleashed giggles.
“Colorado? He’s building a wall in Colorado,” said Lemon. “I probably don’t have to tell you that Colorado is not on the border. Colorado is not on the border with Mexico, but I can’t wait to see that wall. Who’s going to pay for that one? Oh, boy. It’s on the border with New Mexico. Maybe New Mexico is going to pay for the wall. Who’s going to pay for the wall? New Mexico!”

CNN panel blows up Lindsey Graham’s ‘hearsay’ talking points: ‘He knows what he’s saying is nonsense’
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Thursday lashed out at the House of Representatives' impeachment inquiry and argued that it was completely illegitimate because it was relying on "hearsay" testimony from witnesses such as George Kent and Bill Taylor.
CNN's John King reacted to Graham's latest tirade by taking all his talking points apart piece by piece, starting with his accusation that evidence can't be gathered from hearsay. In particular, King pointed to the role that hearsay played in the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton.
"He's talking about hearsay -- Number One, this is not a court of law, Congress is not a court of law," he said. "Number Two, I would remind Lindsey Graham, Linda Tripp heard about [Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky] from a friend."
Lindsey Graham clings to new Trump ‘hearsay’ defense: Impeachment ‘is going to destroy the presidency over time’
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) argued that the impeachment of President Donald Trump should not go forward because it would "destroy the presidency over time."
Reporters pressed Graham on Thursday about what he might do to stop the impeachment proceedings.
"There’s no quid pro quo," Graham ranted. "Nothing happened here. We’re not going to impeach this president over this. We’re not going to legitimize a hearing where you can only call Democratic witnesses. It’s over. It’s done for me."
According to the South Carolina Republican, impeachment is not a valid remedy for the president's misdeeds because it was initiated with so-called hearsay evidence.
