We know it’s a lie, and the White House knows it’s a lie (whether or not the squatter-in-chief actually does), and even Fox News likely knows it’s a lie, but that typically doesn’t matter. Usually, the lies skate by unchallenged.

Well, not this morning.

Today on Fox News Sunday, Fox’s designated simulacrum of a reporter, Chris Wallace, pressed White House spokesvillain Sarah Huckabee Sanders on the administration’s flat-out false and silly claim that thousands of terrorists are using the southern border to gain entry to the U.S.:

WALLACE: The State Department says that there is, quote, their words, “no credible evidence of any terrorist coming across the border from Mexico.”

SANDERS: We know that roughly nearly 4,000 known or suspected terrorists come into our country illegally, and we know that our most vulnerable point of entry is at our southern border.

WALLACE: Wait, I know the statistic. I didn’t know you were going to use it, but I studied up on this. Do you know where those 4,000 people come, where they are captured? Airports.

SANDERS: Not always.

WALLACE: Airports. The State Department says there hasn’t been any terrorists that they’ve found coming across the southern border.

SANDERS: It’s by air, it’s by land, it’s by sea, it’s all of the above, but one thing that you’re forgetting is that the most vulnerable point of entry that we have into this country is our southern border, and we have to protect it, and the more and more that individuals know that …

WALLACE: But they’re not coming across the southern border, Sarah, they’re coming and they’re being stopped at airports.

SANDERS: They’re coming any number of ways, they’re certainly, I’m not disagreeing with you that they’re coming through airports.

You can catch the entire conversation here or below:

By the way, just in case you’re wondering how dumb the administration thinks Fox viewers are, she also made this claim: “That’s what sets America apart from every other country — we value life. It’s what makes us unique.”

Really? So the only developed country in the world without guaranteed health care for its citizens is the only one that values life. Good to know, Sarah. Might want to tell all those Danes and Swedes about this — if you can get anywhere near them without being blood-eagled.
