Jim Acosta is a reporter for CNN or that’s his job title, anyway. However, he often interjects his opinion, providing commentary when he should just stick to reporting the facts.
Well, in yet another attempt to try and poke fun at and mock President Trump, Acosta tried to ridicule Trump’s demand for a border wall. Unfortunately for the reporter who seemingly loves being the story instead of just reporting the story, it didn’t go so well.
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

Acosta, while walking along a part of the U.S.- Mexican border, tries to downplay the crisis at the border. But he specifically mentions that he’s at an area of the wall and mentions that there is no crisis, there is no problem. He doesn’t seem to understand that he makes the case that walls do work.
Regardless, Twitter let Acosta know of his inadvertent advocacy for a border wall. President Trump even got in on the act as well.

Today I discovered that walls work.

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
