Colbert on Trump’s Scaled Down 55 Mile Border Wall: Promises Made, Promises Three Percent Kept

‘Yes, 55 of the 2,000 miles of border wall Trump asked for’

RUSH EXCERPT: 

COLBERT: "Oh, did I mention? In addition to the wall, I want land mines. I want land mines. I want pits, moats filled with spikes, and fire, and, of course, fire-proof crocodiles. I said that many times. Yes." And just like they rehearsed, both sides are claiming victory. Take House Minority Leader and man indicating how many Latinos he wants in America, Kevin McCarthy. Kev told CNBC, "You've got to remember where Nancy Pelosi was-- she who said no money for a wall. That's not the case. Democrats have now agreed to more than 55 miles of new barrier being built." Yes, 55 of the 2,000 miles of border wall Trump asked for. Just another example of Trump's slogan, "Promises made, promises 3% kept." It's something! It's something.”
