CNN’s Jim Acosta is known for making an ass of himself during White House press conferences. But he really needs to learn when it’s inappropriate and when he is going too far. During the historic meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un, Acosta began shouting questions, then took things too far.
“Mr. President, how is the meeting going so far, sir?” shouted Acosta from the crowd. “Very good. Very very good. Excellent relationship. Thank you, thank you very much,” responded Trump. “Mr. Kim will you give up your nuclear weapons, sir?” shouted Acosta. Acosta also shouted “Did you talk about Otto Warmbier sir?”
Then it gets worse, when Trump and Kim Jong Un moved on and stopped addressing him, Acosta was caught in an embarrassing hot mic. “Hey, if they’re not going to let me in the f*cking meeting, then that’s what happens,” said Acosta with the microphone still on.
Many on social media were furious with Acosta. “Looks like Jim @Acosta was trying to sabotage the #TrumpKimSummit by screaming at Kim Jong Un like a lunatic. Why is he allowed in the press pool?” tweeted author Mark Dice.
“Easily the most annoying person in the White House press corps, and that’s saying something considering how crowded the field is,” tweeted Washington Examiner writer T. Becket Adams. Check out the video below.
