Yes, Rep. Trent Franks actually said something this crazy!

He actually said this:

While defending the need to build a costly wall along the southern U.S. border, Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) claimed on Wednesday that nuclear bombs could be hidden inside bales of marijuana smuggled into the United States through Mexico.

“I can suggest to you that there are national security implications here for a porous border,” Franks told CNN host Brianna Keilar on Wednesday. “We sometimes used to make the point that if someone wanted to smuggle in a dangerous weapon, even a nuclear weapon, into America, how would they do it? And the suggestion was made, well, we’ll simple hide it in a bale of marijuana.”

‘Cause every terrorist knows that the perfect place to hide a nuke is in a large bale of something the Border Patrol specifically targets! Genius!

    they could get the Mexican Europeans (white as any White in the US) to bring them across in a yugge parade with tanks, missiles and troops dressed up like American soldiers with flags and everything!

    Right, cuz the first rule of thumb when moving nuclear bombs is to draw as much attention as possible to yourself….
    Other helpful tips ….
    Wrap that bale of weed in heroin, and then bacon….it fools the drug dogs every time

    I know the word politician is synonomous to dishonest, egomaniacal, pure;y self serving gluttony etc. but when did being absolutely stupid and mindless become the upper standard? To think that a mouth like this could actually be attached to head that thought this idea -holy sht!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don’t find anything funny about it. What border agents? Democrats want open borders and sanctuary cities. You think this is funny? You don’t think terrorists can smuggle things across the border? Comedians have dressed up as terrorists and ran across the border to show how ridiculous it is. How quickly you forget 911.
    Democrats were so quick to blame and point fingers then. Now you sit there and laugh when you have the door wide open.
    Don’t say a word if terrorism comes back again. You democrats have done everything to make us vulnerable.
