Trump took a little jab at CNN’s Acosta after he posted a video of himself walking along the border wall that went viral then was mercilessly mocked by people on social media.
Of course, there isn’t a crisis where there’s already a fence. That’s the point.

President Donald Trump took a jab at CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta after he posted a video of himself scrutinizing the president’s characterization of a “crisis” at the US-Mexico border on Thursday.
“Dear Diary…,” Trump said in a tweet that replied to Acosta’s video.
Acosta, who was at McAllen, Texas, where Trump toured the border with Mexico on Thursday, said in his video that he did not “see anything resembling a national emergency situation.” The video, which had over 2 million views at the time of writing, attracted supporters and critics, including Trump’s son, Trump Organization executive Donald Trump Jr.
Trump Jr. replied to Acosta’s tweet, claiming that the correspondent was not seeing a calamity at the border because he was reporting near the border barrier. More
Here’s a sampling of how other Twitter users ridiculed Jim too:
When I went with President @realDonaldTrump to the border today I never imagined @Acosta would be there doing our job for us and so clearly explaining why WALLS WORK. Thanks Jim! https://t.co/7wC4rdEsZ2

Jim Acosta just posted one of the biggest self owns ever.
He’s walking along the border where there’s a wall in place talking about how there’s nothing that “resembles a national emergency situation” and “there’s no migrants trying to rush.”
That’s because there’s a wall, Jim. https://t.co/qkuWRhxolW

So where there are steel slats, there isn’t an emergency crisis. Got it. https://t.co/q5IJcDJZo1

I am *shocked* that a glib video, customized for re-tweets and filmed in broad daylight along one of the more secure parts of the RGV by a reporter who parachuted in for the day, did not reveal anything dramatic. https://t.co/TgPzMtU8pl

It’s almost as though having steel slats might help prevent illegal immigration where you’re filming, dolt. https://t.co/OIpdcvgv5T

Duh. That’s the point of the wall. The child trafficking and drug smuggling occurs where there’s NO wall. Have you no self awareness to know how your “colleagues” find you an embarrassment? cc: @realDonaldTrump https://t.co/93PcvvuWqb

Here’s President Trump personally thanking Jim Acosta for his reporting yesterday, thereby proving the benefit of a wall.

Jim Acosta set himself up for that hit. The really sad thing is that he is too stupid to realize it.
