Gov. Scott Walker’s presidential campaign is crashing and burning. Walker’s constant lies have reached an absurd level as he now claims that he never talked about building a Canadian wall on Meet The Press.
Video of Walker on Fox News:
Walker tried to make us all forget what he said two days ago, “This is just a joke in terms of how people react to things. I’ve said for some time that we need to secure the southern border. I’ve talked about the infrastructure, the personnel and the technology needed there. I’ve talked about enforcing the laws. People should go back and watch what I said on Sunday. I never said that at all….I’ve never talked about a wall at the north, I’m certainly not now. That’s just what happens when things get run amok.”
Scott Walker did talk about building a wall on the northern border.
Here is the video of his appearance on Meet The Press:
On Sunday, Walker was asked about building a wall along the Canadian border, and he said, “Some people have asked us about that in New Hampshire. They raised some very legitimate concerns, including some law enforcement folks that brought that up to me at one of our town hall meetings about a week and a half ago. So that is a legitimate issue for us to look at.”
Scott Walker has reached the point where he is a national joke. His claim that he never talked about building a wall, when there is video of him discussing building a wall is the political equivalent of a three year old who believes that they can make themselves invisible by putting their fingers over their eyes.
Voters heard it. They all saw it with their own eyes. Gov. Walker is now the Canada wall guy. Walker has been plunging in the polls over the past month, and his Romneyesque insult to the nation’s collective intelligence only serves to deepen the embarrassment for the Wisconsin governor.
Scott Walker has become the latest of the Republican Party’s “young guns” to open his mouth and shoot himself in the foot.
