“[W]e’re building a wall on the border of New Mexico, and we’re building a wall in Colorado. We’re building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works, that you can’t get over, you can’t get under," he said in Wednesday. "And we’re building a wall in Texas. And we’re not building a wall in Kansas, but they get the benefit of the walls that we just mentioned.”
Rather than admit he misspoke, Trump turned the gaffe into an event. He countered that he was kidding about the idea that Colorado was on the border (clearly false, we have the video) and then tried to have it both ways, saying he was implying Colorado would see benefits of the wall.
Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy saw an opportunity to dunk on Trump. He took a Sharpie to a map of the United States to make Trump's idea of the border correct, a reference to the time Trump edited a hurricane model to back up another incorrect speech.
The governor of Colorado got in on the pile-on.
Everyone seemingly had a good time admitting that our president doesn't know the basic shape of the country he leads.
