Back in the Oval Office on Friday after his trip to the Southern border, President Trump was confronted by a number of reporters, one of whom just happened to be CNN’s Chief White House correspondent James Acosta.

Acosta inadvertently did Trump a favor when he also traveled to the border, posed next to the wall, and noted there “were no migrants trying to rush for this fence,” adding “matter of fact, it’s pretty tranquil down here.”

Trump trolled Acosta to his face, asserting, “Good job yesterday. I appreciate your salesmanship. I appreciate your salesmanship. … Some people are dumb.”

On Thursday, Acosta had posed at the wall from McAllen, Texas, reassuring Americans that there wasn’t “anything resembling a national emergency situation.”

Trump responded to Acosta’s tweet by trolling him on Twitter:

In another video, Acosta showed what he said was an area of the border that shows fencing with barbed wire, writing: “All quiet on this stretch of the border ahead of Trump’s visit to McAllen TX area.”

A third video from Acosta showed him interviewing a local resident about the safety of the area. The woman confirmed to Acosta that the area, which has border barriers, was safe.

Acosta has done a fine job selling the efficacy of the wall so far. He seems to be personifying a quote from Trump’s “The Art of the Deal”: “The most important thing in life is to love what you’re doing, because that’s the only way you’ll ever be really good at it.”

    Some people are ‘Too Stupid To Live’. The only reason they are alive is that their tiny mind can’t discern the difference.

    Acosta needs to head out to the desert where there are no slats or fence with wire on top. Set his dumb Azz down and wait awhile. No cameras, no border patrol and no president. Then let him tell the folks how tranquil it is. And if he has nothing else to do while he is waiting. He could go pick up some of the mountains of trash the illegals left on their way through. They have ruin parts of the desert with, I am talking mountains of trash, that folks use to be able to enjoy hiking. Now it is too dangerous and too nasty to enjoy. So, there is even an environment issue here too.

    Mcallen has an overall crime rate of 5,702 per 100,000 residents. This is one of the most dangerous regions in the United States. This means that your chances of becoming a victim of any type of crime in Mcallen is 1 in 18 if you reside there for a year.

    Would appear that that Nadine and the LAME STREAM LYING MEDIA is trying to pull somebody’s leg …as always

    Leave Acosta alone. He, like Nancy and Chuck are glaring, obvious examples of how biased and ignorant the left is. Their agenda trumps everything. Pun intended!

    I had to giggle at the “Dear Diary” tweet from POTUS. It brought back memories from my daughters drama queen days

    It is impossible that somebody as dumb as Acosta got through grade school, to say nothing of getting a “higher” education. He absolutely oozes ignorance.

    Thanks for the security conformation, Jim, but you are probably too ignorant to know what thanks means.
