Rep. King Designs Electrified Fence For Southern Border: ‘We Do This With Livestock All The Time’

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) went on the House floor on Tuesday to discuss a fence that he “designed” for the southern boarder. (King constructed a model of the fence as he was speaking.) King’s design features a wire electrified “with the kind of current that would not kill somebody.” King noted that “we do this with livestock all the time.”

What’s the hope for sustainable, free-range livestock when we can’t even apply the same precepts to human beings? This guy gets an “A” for this science fair show and tell. His model, with all its detachable, form-fitting parts, is the mark of a future engineer. I think it’s to scale, even. Did he do this all by himself, or did daddy help him with his homework?

Watch it in all its glory.
