CNN’s Jim Acosta is in border land near McAllen, Texas, where President Donald J. Trump is set to visit Thursday afternoon. While waiting for Trump to arrive, Acosta filmed himself walking along the border where steel slats are already erected.
What he said during his broadcast completely obliterates the ridiculous leftist talking point that “walls don’t work.”
“Here are some of the steel slats the the President’s been talking about, right here” Acosta said. “As you can see, yes you can see through these slats to the other side of the U.S./Mexico border. But as we’re walking along here, we’re not seeing any kind of imminent danger, there are no migrants trying to rush towards this fence here in the McAllen, Texas area. As a matter of fact, there are some other businesses behind me, along this highway. There’s a gas station, Burger King, and so on – but no sign of the national emergency that the President has been talking about. As a matter of fact, it’s pretty tranquil down here.”
Earth to Acosta! It is tranquil at this part of the border in McAllen, Texas precisely because there is a wall there! Migrants aren’t attempting to cross there because there is a barrier. They prefer the thousands of miles of wide open border land where such barriers don’t exist! Who would have thought?
Throughout the video, Acosta had a smirk on his face, as if he was somehow proving the President wrong, which in his role as a leftist CNN activist is part of his duty.
Unfortunately for Acosta, this time he owned himself.
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. pic.twitter.com/KRoLdszLUu
