Twitter on FIRE After Acosta Accidentally Proves Border Walls Work!

CNN’s Jim Acosta became the subject of mockery on social media following his trip to the US-Mexico border on Thursday, where he unintentionally made the case for President Trump’s proposed border wall.

Acosta, an outspoken critic of the president’s border security and immigration policies, reported from the McAllen area of Texas, near the southern borderline, announcing that he had “found some steel slats,” but didn’t see a “national emergency situation.”

While Acosta’s remarks were clearly a sarcastic attempt at mocking President Trump’s stance on the crisis at the border, his message was soon turned around, and instead was seen by many as proof of the effectiveness of a structure at the border.

Quickly, conservatives reacted to Acosta’s report, including White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, who joined President Trump on Thursday for a trip to Texas to visit the US border.

In a tweet, Sanders jokingly said that she “never imagined [Jim Acosta] would be there, doing our job for us, and so clearly explaining why WALLS WORK,” adding, “Thanks Jim!”

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!

Much of social media indicated generally agreed that Acosta failed in his attempt at disproving President Trump’s assertions of a security crisis at the border, and if anything, helped to prove his point.

I would like to thank @Acosta for pointing out how peaceful, safe and secure it is at a part of the border that HAS a wall.

Smart Ass makes a point- LOL @Acosta Makes Case for Wall: No Emergency Where There’s a Wall

don’t you love when @Acosta shows his ignorance? He does it so often. Hahahaha.. today he shows how there is no crises where there’s an actual barrier on the border. You ever send out that tweet and wish you hadn’t? hahahahah

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.

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?

Jim Acosta is at the border, showing that orgainzed, aggressive challenges to the U.S. border aren’t happening at a place where there’s a giant steel wall

One day we’ll look back and remember that time Jim Acosta tried proving that the American border doesn’t need a wall by showing how safe the part of the American border that already has a wall is
