Conservatives Mock Jim Acosta for Inadvertently Showing That 'Walls Work'
"Conservative social media users roundly mocked CNN reporter Jim Acosta for inadvertently making President Donald Trump’s border wall case for him on Thursday — after Acosta tweeted a video of himself by a steel border wall.
Acosta apparently tried to dismiss the idea of a national emergency at the border by posting a video of himself at the seemingly peaceful border in Texas — while actually walking along a steel border wall.
“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, [Texas], area of the border where Trump will be today,” Acosta tweeted with the video."
The Butterfield Effect commonly ensnares progressives as they have little or no ability to understand cause and effect. It does afford the rest of us a good laugh at the expense of the ninnyhammer progressive.
The Fox Butterfield Effect and the Laffer Curve
"A former reporter for the New York Times, Fox Butterfield, became a bit of a laughingstock in the 1990s for publishing a series of articles addressing the supposed quandary of how crime rates could be falling during periods when prison populations were expanding. A number of critics sarcastically explained that crimes rates were falling because bad guys were behind bars and invented the term “Butterfield Effect” to describe the failure of someone to put 2 + 2 together. We now have a version of the Butterfield Effect in tax policy."
Acosta is the current king of the ninnyhammers in the media. Way to go, Jim, knock'em dead!
