BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): But when it came to building the wall, did Mexico agree to pay for it? 

TUCKER CARLSON (CO-HOST): No. Of course not. Here's a tweet from the president of Mexico. "At the beginning of the conversation with Donald Trump, I made clear that Mexico will not pay for the wall." Yeah. Whatever. I mean, you know who just built a big, beautiful wall with above and below ground sensors? President Obama, around the White House. You know why he did that? Because he cares about his family. Good for him, I get it. 

KILMEADE: Right. 

CARLSON: But that is a big beautiful wall that you just paid for, and I noticed that no one on Morning Joe is scoffing at that wall. Are they?

KILMEADE: I don't even know. Is that show still on? 

CARLSON: I'm just saying every sophisticated person is like, "Oh the wall." Except when Obama builds it, "yeah that's cool."
