God bless Jim Acosta. The unwitting fool took a school field trip to the Mexico/American border to prove a wall is a silly idea. Plot twist: what he managed to do was prove the wall is a great idea. This is why you always want to ensure, when you take a school trip, you go with a parent or guardian.
I found some steel slats down on the border. But I don’t see anything resembling a national emergency situation.. at least not in the McAllen TX area of the border where Trump will be today. pic.twitter.com/KRoLdszLUu

Perhaps, and this is just spitballing conjecture here, there’s no “national emergency situation” in McAllen, Texas because — and bear with me — there’s a barrier. Maybe, just maybe, illegal immigrants are aware McAllen, Texas has border security in the form of a fence and try their border B&Es elsewhere.
A point which isn’t lost on people who have a few more brain cells than Mr. Acosta.
Presumably, Jim, the counter-argument would be that you don't see "a national emergency situation" precisely because there's a wall of the sort that those you're criticizing want to extend.

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

Yeah, but Ben, Jim Acosta is wearing Ray-Ban sunglasses. So he’s a “cool dolt” at least.
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

Jim is competing with Lizzie Warren for greatest self-own. It’s getting to be a tight race.
Er, you found a place where there is a barrier and all is quiet? Jim, do you know what point you're actually making here? https://t.co/YbZfYtyO5P

And my favorite from Ryan, because it’s short and sweet:
Jim Acosta shows that border walls work: https://t.co/SdwXhMQ3qt

That’s right, Jimmy-kins. Fences, walls, some kind of border security, bags and bags of doggy poo, act as deterrents. Which was, at least as I understood it, rather the whole freaking point of the wall.
But hey, those who cannot do fly themselves down to the border, flip on the camera phone and make idiots of themselves. God, I love the First Amendment.
