CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta was torched on social media Thursday; taking major heat after a critique of President Trump’s border wall proposal back-fired big-time.
“CNN’s Jim Acosta was mocked across social media on Thursday for posting a video that was meant to downplay President Trump’s claims of a border crisis — but ended up supporting his argument that border barriers improve security,” writes Fox News.
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

“Here are some of the steel slats that the president’s been talking about,” Acosta said standing beside the barrier. “But as we’re walking along here, we’re not seeing any kind of imminent danger.”
