The AP

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s entertaining the idea of building a wall separating the United States and Canada is being called “crazy” and “dumb.”

Democratic Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy called the idea “one of the craziest” ideas of the presidential campaign.

And Mike Murphy, the head of the Right to Rise super PAC supporting Jeb Bush, said on Twitter that Walker was distracted by focusing on building a wall between the U.S. and Canada.

Murphy’s tweet ended with the hashtag “(hash)NotReady.”

And Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul called it a “pretty dumb idea” in an interview on Boston Herald Radio.

Walker said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday that the issue of border security in the north had been raised by law enforcement officials during a recent town hall in New Hampshire.
