Accosting Acosta

Accosting Acosta, Power Line,  Scott Johnson, August 2, 2017

(Please see also, Trump endorses new immigration bill to cut green-card limits, favor English speakers. I recall a statement by JFK:  “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.” Perhaps those who want to come to America legally should ask, “What can I do for my adopted country, not what she can do for me.” — DM)

CNN reporter Jim Acosta loves the limelight at the White House press briefings and doesn’t particularly mind if he makes a fool of himself in the process. Of course, it helps not to know when you’re making a fool of yourself.

At today’s White House press briefing Acosta sought to debate White House adviser Stephen Miller on the merits of the of the Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy (RAISE) Act (summary here, fact sheet here). Supported by the administration, the bill is intended to create a merit-based immigration system that protects American workers and taxpayers as well as the American economy.

Acosta is somewhat over his head in the exchange with Miller. This is really an amazing display.
