Tucker Carlson mercilessly skewers Jim Acosta’s ‘buffoonish’ border wall backfire

Tucker Carlson torched CNN’s “moral philosopher/Renaissance poet” Jim Acosta over his self-owning border wall video.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson lampooned CNN’s “moral philosopher/Renaissance poet” Jim Acosta over his comical border wall coverage with a snarky take-down spotlighting how spectacularly Acosta’s Twitter video backfired.

“This debate is over,” Tucker sarcastically lamented on his Fox News show. “We’re not getting a barrier along our southern border. We can’t. Not now, not ever.”

“That possibility was permanently destroyed today by a fact-seeking missile of truth launched by one of our country’s premier cable news outlets. In a single devastating act of journalism, CNN killed the wall.

It took their biggest guns to do it. The network dispatched its Chief White House correspondent/moral philosopher/Renaissance poet, Jim Acosta, to the US-Mexico border — specifically to the Texas city of McAllen.

Once on the ground, Acosta wasted no time in proving once and for all that: Walls. Don’t. Work. Watch the standup that changed history.

Carlson then showed Acosta’s self-owning Twitter video, where he inadvertently made the case for why a border wall is necessary: Because it works.


Tucker concluded by sarcastically saying that Trump supporters are toast. Why? Because there’s no comeback to Acosta’s searing take-down of any pro-wall arguments.

“Take that, you nativist bigot freaks! You creepy wall-obsessives! Jim Acosta just spanked you. Acosta went right to wall itself, the very wall he finds immoral and has often argued against at press conferences.

And what Jim Acosta found will shock you: Not a single illegal alien was anywhere near that wall. There was no tent city. There were no predatory gang members or coyotes. No sad, suffering caravans. Everything was just fine.

Or, as Acosta so memorably put it, the area around that steel barrier was “pretty tranquil.”

See? That’s what you get when you build walls, America: Tranquility. And that’s the last thing we need more of in this country. More peaceful scenes like that. Wait — that can’t really have been CNN’s point, could it?  Pretty confusing.”

As BizPac Review reported, President Trump and his son Don Jr. hilariously tag-teamed Acosta in an epic smackdown, where they thanked Jim for proving that walls work to stem illegal immigration and crimes in border cities.  Thanks Jimbo!

Unhinged leftists: “Walls don’t work.”
