CNN’s Jim Acosta is such a smug piece of shit. I would personally like to fight him. Just look at this tweet he put out and you will want to fight him also.
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

Basically Jim found an area of the border where there’s physical infrastructure preventing illegal crossings. He basically said that because it was so peaceful there, it proved that there was no national emergency. So he accidentally made the point that walls and barriers work. A point of which many of Trump’s supporters called him out on.
Glad to see the steel slats are deterring illegal immigrants from attempting to cross the border exactly as @realDonaldTrump said they would. This is why we need to #BuildTheWall along the rest of our southern border. #WallsWork https://t.co/EWJYbq78Dn

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.

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

It’s also worth noting that going to a single section of a 2,000+ mile border near a Burger King and using that to claim that there is no problem at the border is ridiculous. Did he not see the footage of the caravan invasion that just happened a month ago? And what about all the stats and anecdotes from Border Patrol personnel? There is a definite problem and it needs to be addressed with additional walls and barriers. This is not rocket science.
But thanks Jim for helping us prove this point!
