Please Enjoy This Video Of Jim Acosta Owning Himself At The Border Wall

Jim Acosta’s latest video report from the border wall must truly be seen to be believed.

It’s starting to seem as though Jim Acosta is biased. His latest video report must truly be seen to be believed.

Of course, Acosta thought he was undermining Trump’s “national emergency” narrative by depicting a relatively peaceful scene along a section of steel slats in McAllen, Texas on Thursday. Were he not so blinded by his own bias and thirst for retweets, Acosta may have realized the “tranquil[ity]” he encountered actually kind of makes Trump’s point about the wall. But that’s asking a little too much.

Ever fueled by an aggressive self-awareness deficit, Acosta just couldn’t help but frame his 30-second video report as an indictment of Trump’s policy, making his self-own that much sweeter. The only disadvantage here is that we’re spilling another round of ink on Acosta, which is ultimately what the guy wants. What I want, on the other hand, is Burger King, so at least Acosta has that.
