Perry: Trump’s Rhetoric ‘Political Theater,’ We Are Not Building a 1,933-Mile Wall

perry
Sunday on Fox News, Republican presidential candidate former Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) said his rival Donald Trump’s “rhetoric makes for good political theater,” but “the fact is, it’s 1,933 miles from Tijuana to El Paso to Brownsville, and you’re not going to build a wall on that distance.” Perry said, “Well, rhetoric makes for good political theater, but the fact is, it’s 1,933 miles from Tijuana to El Paso to Brownsville and you’re not going to build a wall on that distance. What you are going to do is put the personnel in the right place, have the strategic fencing in the metropolitan areas. And what’s really missing are the aviation assets flying 24/7 with the ability to look down and analyze what going on on both sides of the border. And then when it’s clearly illegal, fast response teams to go and interdict. That’s how you secure the border.

McCaskill on Trump: ‘Very American’ to Be ‘Distracted By the Shiny Object’

mc
Sunday on MSNBC, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said of the success of Donald Trump’s Republican candidacy will fade because “it’s very American to be distracted by the shiny object.” McCaskill said, “It’s almost like a demolition derby. Everyone goes, why would you watch it? But you can’t look away. That’s what it reminds me of. It’s very American for us to be distracted by the shiny object. That’s what this is. People need to keep this in context. His unfavorables are much higher than Hillary Clinton’s. He is only getting—depending on the poll—about 25 percent of Republican voters. That means 75 percent of them don’t want him.
