Jim Acosta (7 November): “Your Campaign Had An Ad Showing People Climbing Over Walls”

The saying goes that ‘Karma’s a bitch’ and certainly in the case of the testy exchange between CNN’s Mr. Jim Acosta and US President Donald Trump of 7 November 2018, one day after the Midterms, the cliché is true.

We would like to remind our readers of the feisty exchange which came one day after the Midterm elections and which resulted in the US media backing Mr. Jim Acosta of CNN during the court case a week later as he was stripped of his White House press credentials for improperly touching a White House intern.

Given the images seen at the border crossing in Tijuana this weekend, they make for some interesting reading.

Here is the exact transcript of the exchange between CNN’s Mr. Jim Acosta and US President Donald Trump of that day.

Acosta: Thank you, Mr. President, I wanted to challenge you on one of the statements that you made in the tail-end of the campaign in the Midterms.
Trump: Here we go…
Acosta: Well if you don’t mind Mr. President…
Trump: Come on…

Acosta: .. that this caravan was an invasion.
Trump: I consider it to be an invasion.
Acosta: As you know, Mr. President, the caravan was not an invasion, it’s a group of migrants moving up from Central America towards the border with the US ….

Trump: Thank you for telling me that.
Acosta: Why did you characterize it as such…
Trump: Because I consider it an invasion. You and I have a difference of opinion.
Acosta: But do you think that you demonized immigrants during this election to try to keep…
Trump: No no no, I want them to come into the country, but they have to come in legally. They have to come in, Jim, through a process. I want it to be a process. I want people to come in and we need the people…

Acosta: Your campaign had…
Trump: Wait, wait, you know why we need the people. Because we have hundreds of companies moving in, we need the people.
Acosta: Your campaign had an ad showing migrants climbing over walls and so on….
Trump: Well that’s true.
Acosta: It wasn’t actors. They’re not gonna be doing that.
Trump: They are not actors, they are not from Hollywood. This happened just a few days ago…
Acosta: They are hundreds of miles away though….
Trump: You know what, I think you should let me run the country and you run CNN and if you did it well, your ratings would be better.

Three weeks later, on Sunday 25 November, a group of 500 migrants stormed the border between Tijuana and San Diego. They climbed over walls, threw rocks and were halted both by Mexican and US security forces.

Those criminals are not poor people coming in fleeing for asylum; They are terrorist invaders bankrolled by communist, globalist scum invading our country illegally! The liberals know this but they do not care because it doesn't fit into their agenda of destroying the USA. Those criminals should be stopped even if Ice and the military have to fire upon them. They are invaders and should be treated as such. The alternative is a bloody civil war that the liberal will lose!

Acosta did nothing wrong because remember, Obama legalized propaganda before leaving office. CNN and Acosta have a legal right to lie to the American public. The dems and the media dogs colluded together to undermine and overthrow a duly elected president. IMO... that makes them guilty of TREASON! LET JUSTICE PREVAIL!!

"Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act" passed in the Senate, quietly inserted inside the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Report. And now, following Friday's Obama signing of the NDAA on Friday evening, the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act is now law.

In one iteration of the NDAA policy makers overturn Smith Mundt thereby legalizing state sponsored propaganda to be used on the citizens of the United States and in the latest iteration we see the NDAA include an act to counter disinformation and propaganda.

That means the public only gets government manufactured news and all other resource news or alternative news is considered illegal. You get fed what they want to feed you. And everyone else damn well better shut up. How do you like your lies, boiled or fried? #FAKE NEWS MEDIAS #1984

CNN, when will they ever learn?

I think Acosta is the reincarnation of Joseph Goebbels, admittedly not as smart.
