Scott Walker Is An Idiot

Over the weekend, while eating corn dogs at the Iowa State Fair, the bought and paid for governor of the formerly great state of Wisconsin was asked by MSNBC reporter Kasie Hunt: “Do you think that birthright citizenship should be ended?”

A simple question - if you’re not a moron. Birthright citizenship refers to the provision of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution:

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”

Walker, having switched his position on immigration more frequently than he changes clothes, in a transparent effort to be even more of a right wing nutball than he already is, responded:

“Well, like I said, Harry Reid said it’s not right for this country. I think that’s something we should — yeah, absolutely, going forward.” 

The Harry Reid reference is to a proposal offered by Reid some 25 years ago, not passed, and since repudiated by the Nevada senator.

Hunt pressed the question, asking Walker whether the U.S. should deport the U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants - which would be the whole point of getting rid of birthright citizenship.

Walker, clearly having no idea what he was talking about, responded: “I didn’t say that — I said you have to enforce the law, which to me is focusing on e-verify,” which has nothing whatsoever to do with birthright citizenship, which would require a constitutional amendment.

The good lord save us from morons like Scott Walker.
