Default CNN's Acosta Has Proof...

That the border wall apparently doesn't work because there was no imminent danger or migrants trying to rush towards the fence. Go to the 17 second mark in the video (see link below) and enjoy! This is the same Acosta who likes to create scenes in the WH press pool.

Can't remember if I've posted this interview here or not, but it seems very relative to Cal's post.

https://www.npr.org/2018/12/21/67929...nment-shutdown

Here IMO is the most relevant point made by Senator Lankford of OK.

"We obviously need fencing in some areas. In the old area of fencing around San Diego, we've had Border Patrol agents that have told us the old fencing that exists now, they had 10 penetrations a day on it. The new fencing that's put up, they have one a month. So there's a pretty dramatic difference in what's happening in some of the new fencing areas, so it does work in that."

Acosta shoved his foot in his mouth and is likely too "drunk" on Trump derangement syndrome to understand why his breath smells like feet. Nothing like proving an area secure due to the wall between said area and Mexico.

Trump somewhat playing this correctly. Too bad he has so few supporters in D.C. I think he should start opening governmental agencies in small segments while continuously calling out Pelosi. Trump is obviously trying to work a deal. But, it is impossible when the old bat says "no way".

I should be shocked that they voted her for Speaker again, but it is Washington D.C.

lol so much for the theory that the "smart people" get on tv huh. There are at least 2 idiots related to this story...the person that thought it up and then Acosta for not seeing it, talk about owning yourself. I think next week they are doing a story on how water is wet and shoot on location at the beach.

Of course there isnt a border crisis at the border where you got your hand on the very fence thats keeping them out

There's some old saying about the loudest person in the room not always being the smartest, especially when they have to tell you how smart they are. Acosta seems to prove this on a daily basis.

People who feel the need to tell the world how smart they are.... in reality are really insecure or have narcissistic personality disorder which is another whole problem. Acosta going up against Trump was battle of the narcissists on steroids.

Acosta was, is and will always be in over his head. He's just not that smart of a guy and then he squanders what little he has.
