In what might be the biggest self-own of all time, CNN’s Jim Acosta inadvertently proved how effective walls are.
Acosta traveled to McAllen, Texas, on Thursday as part of the press pool covering President Donald Trump’s visit to the border.
He broadcasted himself standing next to large steel slates along the border between the United States and Mexico.
“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,” Acosta tweeted.

Without a whiff of self-awareness, Acosta didn’t even consider that the area was so “nice” and safe because there was a giant border barrier protecting the American city.
