In one of his many attempts at snarkiness, Trump’s oldest son attempted to get into a Twitter feud with CNN’s Jim Acosta on Thursday over video Acosta posted to Twitter from McAllen, Texas, where the president plans to visit. Acosta’s tweet said:

‘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.’

Junior clearly didn’t watch the video to be sure he wasn’t humiliating himself. Acosta’s video included shots of him standing behind the steel barrier, which included large gaps between the slats, and said very clearly that the barrier was only up along part of the border. The rest was either chain-link fence or nothing at all.

Acosta fired back, asking Junior if he was saying border security is just fine the way it is. The residents Acosta spoke to in McAllen said that they have seen immigrants cross the border into their town, despite the steel barrier and fencing, and that no violence or crisis had happened, so far.

Junior just couldn’t resist sticking his foot the rest of the way into his mouth. Along with numerous other Trump-backing Republicans, Junior continued to mock Acosta’s video because…they hadn’t watched it.

One part that may have interested them, especially since they needed to avoid praising that part-wall, part-fence, part-nothing perfectly safe stretch of border in order to avoid embarrassing themselves, was the tweet from McAllen that Acosta posted that included a Latino man who has lived there all his life.

When asked how he felt about Trump’s terrifying descriptions of chaos and murder at the southern border in places like McAllen, which do not have a solid steel barrier to keep immigrants out, Jose had a few choice words.

‘Natural-born liar.’

Twitter echoed Jose’s sentiments. Read some of their comments below:
