TX Republican Admits Trump's Border Wall Idea Is Ridiculous

GOP Scholar, Blake Farenthold admits Trump's wall is as stupid as, well...

In case you missed the "Stunning" Steve King (H/T @SMShow) yesterday, the beginning of the video clip above shows his insanely white supremacist and racist inner beliefs. Personally. I still can't believe he said that out loud. But nothing should surprise anyone after this week's proceedings.

I pretty much expected a similarly offensive and brainless response from his colleague in the House, Texas Rep. Blake Farenthold, a man the same awful racist proclivities. Blake was a guest on panel on one of the RNC pre-prime time shows. This gerrymandered wingnut has been one of the louder empty barrels who has been very Birther, pro-'Fast and Furious' and a proponent of impeachment for President Obama.

While I watched the pre-sh*t-a-drome (h/t Patton Oswalt) festivities where the discussion morphed into the fictitious notion that the GOP is a 'big tent' party, April Ryan reminded everyone of Republicans' failure in that department. She effectively drills home the point that the GOP is truly pathetic in their attempts to reach out to minority America. That could be because their nominee speaks about 'building a wall, ' and saying brainless comments like, 'that's my African American over there.'

It's pretty hilarious when the colorblind party does not see color, yet their convention has 18 Black delegates out of 2,472 total. See? That's stunning.

Even more stunning was watching Farenthold do the Dance of the Wall, before finally admitting there isn't going to be any wall.

RYAN: They see color, it's just how they want the color to come into the room, I guess.

FARENTHOLD: The wall isn't about race or national origin, it's about keeping the country safe. It's about keeping the terrorists out, the drug dealers out

RYAN: It's a 2,000 mile stretch of wall, a border. Are you gonna put a wall along the whole border with a pretty door?

RYAN: Yeah, I'm from Texas and I realize in the rural areas there's no point in wasting money on the fence

HAYES: Thank you! It's a ridiculous idea that anyTexan will tell you.

FARENTHOLD: But you can secure the border with technology.

HAYES: Please just acknowledge the fact that...Texans I've talked to think the idea of a wall is ridiculous. *crosstalk*


HAYES: Thank You!

FARENTHOLD: Cost only kills you. For two miles of wall you can get a predator drone.

No walls, but a few drones wouldn't be bad!

Even the dimmest of bulbs admits that Drumpenf├╝hrer's wall pander is idiotic, yet we have to pretend this RNC ruse is an actual political event. Ridiculous doesn't do this terrible Trumpian travesty justice.
