On “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” Wednesday, Doc Thompson and the guys talked about an MSNBC guest expert who said a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico should be stopped lest it hurt wildlife in the area.
President Donald Trump’s plan for a “big beautiful wall” on the southern border was a major issue in his 2016 campaign. In a recent interview with MSNBC, biologist and nature television host Jeff Corwin said the proposed border wall will interrupt birds’ migratory patterns and force the Mexican gray wolf to become extinct.
“It’s almost like he has an agenda and all of this stuff is just B.S.,” Doc said sarcastically.
He jokingly envisioned a future where birds have to jump on a train or dig a tunnel under the border wall in order to follow their normal migratory patterns.
“When you see the trains [in Mexico], with all of the birds sitting on top of the trains … with all their belongings, their bird luggage,” Doc described. “They’ve got that stick with the rag holding all of their stuff at the end.”
In Doc’s imaginary future, some birds will have to dig tunnels under the border wall to fight their way to freedom.
“It’s a horrible life for those birds. I mean, their migratory patterns have changed from flying to on top of a train. Have you seen them tunneling under? The birds building the tunnels, digging under?”
Correction: The original piece erroneously indicated that Jeff Corwin was an Animal Planet host. Mr. Corwin is not currently associated with the network. We regret the error.
