posted by Hannity Staff - 1.10.19

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.

“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.”

FIREWORKS: Stephen Miller Shreds CNN's Jim Acosta in Face-to-Face Showdown

Sparks flew between senior White House advisor Stephen Miller and CNN’s Jim Acosta during the White House press briefing on Wednesday, as the two waged a near seven-minute battle over the President’s new merit-based immigration system.

The fireworks began after Acosta accused the administration’s new immigration guidelines of violating the “spirit” of America; contradicting the poem inscribed on the State of Liberty that welcomed the world’s “huddled masses.”

“What the President is proposing here does not sound like it’s in keeping with American tradition when it comes to immigration,” said Acosta. “Aren’t you trying to change what it means to be an immigrant coming into this country… Can’t people learn to speak English when they get here?”

“Jim let’s talk about this,” Miller fired back. “In 1970 when we let in 300,000 people a year, was that violating or not violating the Statue of Liberty ‘Law of the Land?’ In the 1990s, when it was half a million a year was it violating or not violating the Statue of Liberty [poem]?”

“Tell me what years meet Jim Acosta’s definition of the Statue of Liberty poem ‘Law of the Land?'” said Miller.

The Presidential adviser and Acosta then got into a heated exchange, with the CNN correspondent slamming the administration for the new guidelines as well as the border wall.

“Surely Jim, you don’t actually think that a wall affects green card policy? You couldn’t possibly believe that, do you?” asked a shocked Miller. “Does CNN not know the difference between green card policy and illegal immigration?”

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta took his war-of-words with the White House to the next level Thursday; posting an online video of himself at the US-Mexico border and claiming there’s no “national emergency” taking place in the region.

“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,” said Acosta.

President Trump is expected to meet with local and federal officials Thursday; hearing first-hand accounts of the ongoing crisis taking place along the United States’ southern border with Mexico.
