Walker Has His Back Against The Canadian Wall

Who are you gonna believe, Scott Walker or your lying ears?

In the above video, the gentle reader will see part of Scott Walker's interview with Chuck Todd on Meet the Press this past Sunday, in which Walker said that building a wall along the Canadian-US border was a "legitimate issue."

The gentle reader will also see Walker's appearance on Fox's "American Newsroom" on Tuesday, in which he denies ever talking about a fence along the border, calling it a "joke."

Here is the dialogue from Sunday:

“Do you want to build a wall north of here too?” Todd asked, noting that Walker has talked about building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to deter terrorism in addition to illegal immigration.

“Some people have asked us about that in New Hampshire,” Walker replied. “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.”

In fact, Walker doubled down on his Canadian wall after the show had aired:

In the immediate aftermath of his comments, Walker didn’t back down, tweeting on Sunday: “Law enforcement expressed concerns to me about border security. I won’t ignore them.”

Per Walker, we shouldn't pay attention to what he said but just to what he says he said.

Or so he says.
