On the September 1st edition of Fox & Friends, Fox’s Tucker Carlson tried to justify Donald Trump’s infamous border wall with one ridiculous claim.
BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): But when it came to building the wall, did Mexico agree to pay for it?
TUCKER CARLSON (CO-HOST): No. Of course not.

I mean, you know who just built a big, beautiful wall with above and below ground sensors? President Obama, around the White House. You know why he did that? Because he cares about his family. Good for him, I get it.
CARLSON: But that is a big beautiful wall that you just paid for, and I noticed that no one on Morning Joe is scoffing at that wall. Are they?
KILMEADE: I don’t even know. Is that show still on?
CARLSON: I’m just saying every sophisticated person is like, “Oh the wall.” Except when Obama builds it, “yeah that’s cool.”
