“By any measure,” O’Rourke said, “the border is as safe as it’s ever been.”

Now there’s a mouthful to mull over. Because really, one “measure” might suggest that the borders, for at least eight long years under the previous administration, were pretty danged unsafe. So is he saying that Trump hasn’t stemmed the unsafe flow of illegals crossing into America — which is patently false? Or is he just mumbo-jumboing his way through his remarks, hoping nobody notices his words are empty and don’t make sense?

By any measure, smart money is on the second.
