    CNNís Jim Acosta doubles down on how safe border is before Trump fires back

    CNNís Jim Acosta doubles down on how safe border is before Trump fires back
    https://www.foxnews.com/entertainmen...ump-fires-back
    CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Thursday reiterated how safe it is in McAllen, Texas, after he faced mockery on social media for inadvertently making the case for President Donald Trumpís border wall.
    Eventually, Trump himself weighed in.

    The brouhaha began when Acosta took to Twitter showing video of himself walking alongside a steel barrier and saying how the area was ďpretty tranquil.Ē


    Big thanks to the big dummy, Acosta for confirming that a wall works very well!

    So the fence we have (yes, that was a fence) is already working. Guess we don't need a wall then.

    Also, Acosta makes the point that if the area is "tranquil" (a premise you accept), then there is no "crisis."

    Republicans have based their push for a wall lies for so long they have no idea how to keep their narrative straight.

    Wow, FOX News is really desperate eh? Acosta pointed out that Trump is full of **** when it comes to his fear mongering about illegal immigrants.

    But instead of reporting on reality, that Trump, Huckabee, and Nielsen, were deceitful in their 30,000/40,000 person claim, that in fact the number is 6, they make up a bunch of lies about Acosta.

    With "reporting" like this, is it any wonder so much of Trump's base has nary a clue about actual border security?
    Jeez, did you do really do something that stupid? You were as Dumb As Donald!

    If you watch the actual video, FOX News is making up a bunch of nonsense, I suppose to deflect from Trump, Huckabee, and Nielsen's deceit about the 30,000-40,000 supposedly caught at the southern border.

    Since the 2,000 mile-long border is by no means homogenous, I would ask if the areas in which there are no barriers are similarly tranquil.

    A San Diego television station on Thursday said that CNN had asked for a "local view" and then "declined to hear from us" after past reports from the station showed that a border wall was effective.

    "We believe CNN declined a report from KUSI because we informed them that most Border Patrol Agents we have spoken to told us the barrier does in fact work," it concludes. "We have continuously been told by Border Patrol Agents that the barrier along the Southern border helps prevent illegal entries, drugs, and weapons from entering the United States, and the numbers prove it."
    Apparently things are calm where there are barriers. Shocked.

    That would be a different question. Fox News makes the claim that Acosta's particular example makes the case for a wall, when in fact it quite obviously does the opposite.

    Do you have the actual numbers to say itís deceit?

    Which areas without fencing supports that conclusion?

    Notice how completely Republicans have lost the public debate on a "wall" and are now retreating to a "barrier," and are even resorting to places where existing fences work to make their case. They've admitted that a wall isn't necessary and don't even know it.

    Realistically it could go both ways right?

    In one view it could be said the wall is working. Which in my view that portion is.

    Now move to a portion without that type of border and labeled a hot area by the BP and compare.

    Itís well and good to say itís not a crisis and then ignore every other area because one spit is doing what it should.

    Acosta got owned because his presentation was BS. He deserves it as he doesnít appear to have to many brain cells
