Tucker Carlson opened the Thursday edition of his FOX News show by assailing CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta for his roundly mocked Twitter video that attempted to show how "tranquil" the border is without a border wall. Acosta filmed himself alongside a border barrier.
"This debate is over," Carlson sarcastically said. "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."
