Rep. Steve King (R-IA) has some solid ideas on how to fund the border wall, but his solution left CNN’s “New Day” co-host Alisyn Camerota aghast.

President Donald Trump made the building of a border wall between the United States and Mexico a key tenet of his campaign, but reality has started to sink in on his ambitious plans.

The money needed to get the ball rolling will need to come from somewhere.

That topic came up when Rep. Steve King (R-IA) appeared on CNN’s “New Day” to have a chat with co-host Alisyn Camerota, who kicked things off by asking King if he felt comfortable using taxpayer dollars for the project.

King had the audacity to provide a common sense perspective, and that was bit too much for Camerota to bear.

“Absolutely yes, and more, and I’d throw another $5 billion on the pile,“ King said, as transcribed by Breitbart.

To make that happen, King said he would target things such as Planned Parenthood and food stamps.

Camerota’s brow was pretty furrowed at this point, and she was so taken aback that she pressed for confirmation.

“You want to take food from people who are the people who are on the lowest rung in terms of the nation’s safety net, and their children?” she breathlessly asked.

Undeterred, King would pepper Camerota with facts to bolster his argument. Based on Camerota’s nonstop eye rolls and generally confused expression, we can chalk this one up as a clear win for King – and for common sense.

“We built the program because to solve the problem of malnutrition in America, and now we have a problem of obesity,” he said in response to Camerota’s assertion that every single person using food stamps is in dire need of them.

    Build wall, keep illegals out, use food stamps to pay for said wall…remove incentive for freeloaders to come to USA…and that’s how you make America great again!

      Fuckin’ A.

  • trixie1223

    How does this broad take a paycheck home?

    • Someone at CNN probably puts it in her g-string.

    • John Batinovich

      Because she has a vagina.

  • trixie1223

    Do libtards actually think it’s wrong to get dirt on a competitor? THIS is politics at its very core.

    • John Batinovich

      It’s been that way for time immemorial.

  • Onetrack

    Funny.. 1.6 billion is how much our government spent flying migrants to canada, for only 25,000 people – trump needs to build the wall but he needs to build it down the middle of the atlantic.

  • John Strickland

    The liberal media was silent on Hillary’s involvement with Russia…when she was running for President, they were silent on it. Now that Donald Trump, is President…its “Collusion” and “Corrupt” Give me a break…their bias, has been completely exposed.

    • Whitaker Weber

      And yet half the U.S. population is so indoctrinated that they’re blind to it.

  • John Strickland

    The cost of illegal immigration is at around 130+ billion per year…even if the wall costed 20 billion, it would be a bargain. lol

    • RaymondBenne

      Does that 130+ even count the war on drugs and medical costs involved with drug abuse? the wall will do more then just stop illegals it will also cut drug traffic and that alone would make it worth the money

      • John Strickland

        I didn’t even consider that…you are right, it would do a lot more than keep illegals out.

  • I_heard_Buddy_Bolden_Say

    EBT card holders are very often obese because they’re the biggest consumers of soda, and eat junk

  • Jesus Christ
  • Chisai Lilly

    She is your typical left minded retard

  • Scott

    Build a wall around CNN

  • John Batinovich

    She hardly “exploded.” She’s an ignorant liberal twat who reveals her stupidity every time she opens her mouth, but the title is little more than clickbait.

  • Sylvia Adams

    Oh he was brilliant! We need more leaders like this guy

  • John Batinovich

    Yes, bitch, we’d use tax payer dollars to build the wall. That was of the reasons Trump was voted into office, to curtail illegal immigration. REMEMBER? And I think using welfare dollars is a fucking awesome idea.


    WTF, he just explained it to the woman anchor, straight after the dickless wonder presenter comes on and starts his rant about it again being evidence of collusion.
    I said it once and i will say it again, just in case the prick ever reads articles like this.

  • WhatMeWorry

    She’s a communist

  • mark white

    Loved how when he said taking away from SNAP, the dummy goes to “taking away from the poor”. Obviously, this bitch doesnt do her own shopping. If she did, she would see what the pigs on freebies buy, and would be disgusted by it.

  • Ed Chaput

    Alison should stick to trying to grill people that are less intelligent than she is. Gorka destroyed her, King destroyed her. She is shameless as can be.

  • Camarota knows nothing about the foodstamp program. Only a minor portion of the money spent is useful. Most of it is fraud, soda, potato chips candy and redbull.

  • Jen

    Alysin needs to go back to morning entertainment where she was quite likable. I don’t think she even likes herself as a political commentator.

  • SJ DC

    Just another dumb bimbo with a microphone

  • OutInTheOC

    Why do people talk to CNN? I just don’t get it. Garbage in – Garbage out!

    • Whitaker Weber

      People should start going on CNN just to fuck with them and call them out on their fake news…. then I’d have a reason to watch CNN!

    The people on food stamps can work on building the wall. Problem solved
