President Donald Trump traveled to the city of McAllen, Texas, on the southern U.S. border on Thursday, and was accompanied by a contingent of the mainstream media who covered the event.
One of those media figures to make the trip to McAllen was CNN’s Jim Acosta, who thought he was awfully clever when he posted a brief video on Twitter bragging about how safe and secure the city was.
Insinuation - Acosta - Crisis - Border - Need
The obvious insinuation by Acosta was that there was no real “crisis” at the border, and thus no need for additional funding for border security, much less for construction of a border wall or other physical barriers.
Except, Acosta filmed himself as he stood beside a section of the border which was defended by the same sort of “steel slat” wall that Trump has demanded more of, and he was roundly mocked on social media for essentially proving the president’s point about the effectiveness of border walls to provide safety and security.
Acosta - Steel - Slats - Border - Anything
Acosta tweeted, “I found some steel slats down on the border. But I don’t see anything resembling a national emergency situation.. at least not in the McAllen TX area of the border where Trump will be today.”
The president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., fired back with a tweet of his own, which read, “Of course you don’t Jim. That’s because walls work. Thanks for your help proving @realDonaldTrump’s point and simultaneously creating one of the best self-own videos ever!!!”
Does - Jim - Acosta - Deserve - Mistake
Does Jim Acosta deserve to be mocked for this mistake?
