CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta continued to troll the White House with video undermining their claim of a “crisis” along the southern border.

Earlier in the day, Acosta had tangled on Twitter with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump, Jr.

“On this stretch of the border we don’t see any fence, any wall, nothing along those lines,” he explained.

“As a matter of fact there are people living along the river here, this is an RV park that’s right on the river,” he continued. “And yes, as you can see behind me, this an area where you can play shuffleboard right on the Rio Grande — with Mexico on the other side.”

Norquist — who once famously said that he wanted to slash government to a size where he could "drown it in a bathtub" — called for hand-marked paper ballots, and urged Congress to pass something similar to the bipartisan Secure Elections Act, which would have given states incentives to switch to secure voting methods and promoted data-sharing to identify threats. The measure was first introduced in 2017 by Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), James Lankford (D-OK), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), but never came to a vote.
