Acosta actually makes me wonder if I’m stupid, because stupid people, obviously, don’t know they are stupid. So now I’m caught in this logic trap.
Because of this wet fart in Ray-Bans I have to question my own intellect.
A joke: Two idiots rent a rowboat and go fishing. They have an especially bountiful day, hauling in six fish. At the end of the afternoon, one of the men turns to the other and says, “This must be a lucky spot in the lake. Let’s mark it so we can come back tomorrow and get more fish.” With that, he takes a crayon and marks a large “X” on the back of the boat, explaining “X marks the spot.” His friend does a face palm. “You imbecile,” he says at length. “You haven’t thought this through. What if the rental place gives us a different boat?”
If you didn’t like that one, try this one: A TV news reporter goes to McAllen, Texas and visits a stretch of the U.S.-Mexican border that has a steel-slat fence running along it. Says said reporter:
And here are some of the steel slats the president has been talking about. … As you can see, yes, you can see through these slats to the other side of the U.S.-Mexico border. But as we’re walking along here, we’re not seeing any kind of imminent danger, there are no migrants trying to rush toward this fence. … Matter of fact there’s some businesses behind me along this highway.
This bit of journalistic wizardry comes to you courtesy of CNN’s Jim Acosta, fresh, obviously, from a day of fishing. Let’s see if we can help explain his conundrum. more here
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. pic.twitter.com/KRoLdszLUu
