    Acosta making another ass out of himself again.

    Jim Acosta famed so-called "reporter" for CNN famous for having been banned from Trumpís daily Briefings for his arrogant actions while questioning Sara Huckabee Sanders, Trumpís Press Secretary and Trump himself at a press conference. Seemingly Jim decided again to make an ass of himself by going to the southern border to prove that thereís no national emergency and or humanitarian crisis there as Trump threatens to declare to get the funding he wants for a continuing of the border wall that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refuses to allow into the budget vote to reopen the rest of the government.


    Acosta, genius that he surely is, picked out an iron slat "see through" section of the border wall to have his cameras scan and show there was nobody there on the Mexico side trying to cross illegally into America, and thereby proof positive there was no national emergency or humanitarian crisis as Trump and the Border Control folks keep claiming. Apparently Jim doesnít understand that the reason that there was no crisis or emergency where he was on the border was precisely the fact that there was a WALL already at that point and thatís precisely the point that Trump and the Border Patrol keep making.


    The vast majority of folks and drugs and human trafficking crossing our border illegally Jimmy donít go to the places where thereís already walls they GO WHERE THERE ARE NO FREEKING WALLS YET!
    Government is force by definition and corruption by nature. The Bigger the government the greater the force and the greater the corruption.

    it isn't safe enough for Acosta to go where there isn't any protection. He's and idiot, but he seems to have one shred of intelligence.

    Acosta is a moron.

    Going by the facts even at the non-wall sections there's no "crisis."
    "A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all-knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity."
    - Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), American social activist and First Lady of the United States

    Acosta being an asshat has nothing to do with the non-emergency on the border.

    Democrats were calling it a crisis before the election of Trump. What's changed? Did Trump do something to end that crisis?

    thousands of people hanging at the border trying to get in anyway they can......................over, under, or through unprotected areas.... entering our country illegally.............man, you are denser than the core of the sun, but nearly as bright.
    How is this going to be paid for? How many are you putting up in your house? How much money have you donated to their cause?
    questions...........but no answers usually followed with insults

    I would be interested in seeing some evidence on that, but my guess would be they were doing it for the same reason Trump is: create an issue out of a non-issue and then do something easy that has no actual bearing on the made-up issue so you can "solve" it and look better to voters.
