Trump supporters at the President’s Monday rally in South Carolina trolled CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta. According to a Buzzfeed reporter, a woman in the crowd spotted Acosta in the press section, and after an exchange the crowd began chanting “Go Home Jim!”

While the entire mainstream media has been unfair to President Trump, Jim Acosta has stood apart from the pack by being the most obnoxious critic of Trump. At nearly every press conference at the White House, Acosta has screamed questions at the President, and other members of his administration, often leading towards confrontations.

Perhaps the most famous of his confrontations occurred just after Trump was elected President, when the then-President elect chose not to allow him to speak, calling him and his news organization “fake news.”

Acosta has also made waves through his arrogant way of handling himself at the White House. Most recently he got into an argument with a Secret Service agent after forgetting his White House press pass. Acosta was upset that the Secret Service agent didn’t recognize him well enough to allow him to violate security protocol. In the end, Acosta was forced to leave and get his pass before being allowed into the White House.

The trolling of Acosta at the rally is mirroring past stunts pulled by the President and his staff. Recently, White House staff used a standard mic check as an opportunity to say “you are fake news” over the PA system, leading towards angry Tweets from press in attendance. On “Take Your Children to Work Day” President Trump offered to bring the children of press into the oval office, and upon asking if they should leave their parents outside, the kids overwhelmingly agreed with the President.

These are just a few examples proving that the American people no longer trust the mainstream media. Acosta is just one of the worst offenders of spreading fake news.

New Gallup Poll Shows Immigration Tops Most Important Problem List

Published

When Americans were asked what they feel is the most important problem facing the nation, immigration topped the list for just the second time in Gallup’s history. The top issue each month since January of 2017 has been the government, but immigration has just replaced its position according to a new Gallup poll.

When asked the same question in June, immigration ranked at 14% when Gallup asked Americans what’s the “most important problem” the nation faces. It jumped from 14% to 22% from June to July 2018.

Each month, Gallup asks the same question and the answer of immigration has always averaged 5% over the 17 years Gallup has included it in their polls. So why the sudden jump from 14% to 22%?

The past several weeks social media and news outlets alike have focused on the issue of separating families at the border with President Trump’s stance on immigration and his modified policy that would keep families detained together (if detainment must occur) continuing to be a hot button issue.

Just last month, TIME ran the cover story, “A Reckoning After Trump’s Border Separation Policy: What Kind of Country Are We,” with the cover photo that was proven to be fake news. The cover showed a 2-year-old little girl crying while President Trump towers above her looking on as she wails. The cover read simply “Welcome to America.” The claim made by Time was that the little girl had been separated from her family at the border, but Yanela, daughter to Sandra Sanchez had never been separated from her mother at all. Sanchez and her daughter were arrested by Border Patrol agents under the zero tolerance policy that criminally charges anyone attempting to cross the border illegally, but at no point were they separated.

Every week immigration has remained in the news cycle, and continues to be an issue that is important to Americans. The Washington Examiner reported on Monday that The National Guard’s deployment to the southwest border in mid-April has led to 10,805 “deportable alien arrests” of people who entered into the United States from Mexico illegally. The National Guard has also intercepted more than 3,300 others who were turned back at the border before crossing into the U.S., and have seized 11,686 pounds of marijuana.

In April of 2006, immigration reached 19% when Congress was working on passing a comprehensive immigration bill. During this time period, immigration protests popped up all across America and saturated the news cycle. The last spike, according to Gallup of immigration as the top problem was in 2014 when the news focused its attention on a large number of immigrants who were attempting to enter the U.S. from Central America.

The issue of immigration is important to Americans, but for starkly different reasons. Republicans are more concerned about potential crime, impacts on the nation’s economy, and jobs being taken away from native-born families. Democrats, in contrast, support a path to citizenship for the undocumented, but more over, they know that they need all the help they can get at the polls, with Trump’s base stronger than ever heading into the Midterms.

The Gallup poll is based on telephone interviews conducted July 1-11 with a random sample of 1,033 adults in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. It has a margin of error of 4 percentage points and a 95 percent confidence level.
