Jim Acosta Breaks Down and Gets Emotional Over Lack of Unity in the Nation: ‘We Live in Separate Worlds Now’

All gave some, some gave all.

Those of us that are over 30 remember the saying in the aftermath of 9-11 and the wars that followed remember the power imbued in those words. Jim Acosta remembers and brought it up today.

We are losing an average of 1500 people to COVID per day in this county. We have a 9/11 every two days now, but those losses are not bunched together in a tight setting and thus seem more ephemeral. We rightly had a memorial for the 3,000 that lost their lives on 9/11 today, on a weekend where 3,000 will lose their lives. The only reason that the death totals are not in the 2500 people per day is that our medical staffs are getting that much better at treating it.

We are losing 1500 a day of unvaccinated patients. The ICUs are full of unvaccinated patients. These are people that had a choice and chose to make a political statement, only to become testimony as to just how absurd our politics has gotten. Absurd is not the right word, perhaps sick. It has certainly sickened our democracy.

The death totals are near the same (per weekend), it is the lack of unity that caused Jim Acosta to tear up today, lack of unity as a country, not just in politics but in the inability to even agree on the same basic facts. Watch Acosta call the nation’s MAGAs out as the ones unwilling to agree with basic facts.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?

We do live in separate worlds, even while living side by side with each other. We live in a country where a thirteen-year-old and new to a school has to ask about political beliefs during the first days of friend formation. It sounds ridiculous, but that’s where things stand and that is why Acosta teared up. It is sad and the COVID deaths are all tragic, all as preventable as 9/11.
