We've now reached peak absurdity on the border wall, thanks to Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana.

My colleague Karoli is right: Kennedy likes to get attention with his folksy ways, but he's just an ahole. And yet we must thank him for using what is obvious to everyone but him, a euphemism for penis, as an alternate name for MAGA and Trump's stupid border wall.

The actual House Homeland Security Committee responded:

Oh no, Donald, it's a wangdoodle. And Nancy Pelosi is not going to let you have it. She's cutting it off, as it were.

Can you help us out?
