There are a lot of obnoxious reporters in the mainstream media, but by far, the worst of the worst has to be CNN’s Jim Acosta, who constantly grandstands, acts rudely, and just in general makes a fool of himself on national television on a daily basis.
Well, North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un got to feel a bit of Trump’s pain today after Acosta did what he does best and peppered the man with useless questions and shouted constantly at both he and President Trump attempting to illicit some sort of response from the pair.
“Chairman Kim, will you denuclearize?” he pressed. “Mr. President, how’s it going so far, sir?”
When Trump finally responded by saying it was going “Very, very good,” Acosta, who was the designated pool reporter assigned to represent U.S. media organizations, seemed encouraged to demand answers from Kim, who is used to a more compliant media.
“Will you give up your nuclear weapons, sir?” Acosta shouted, either unaware that Kim had just pledged to do exactly that or thinking that his probing interrogation technique might elicit a more fulsome answer than the recently concluded diplomatic session.
Protocol? Manners? A CNN journalist craves not these things.
Here’s some clever reactions to Acosta’s shenanigans:
CNN confirms it was predictably Jim Acosta that yelled “So are you going to give up your nukes?” at Kim Jong Un during the photo op.

Easily the most annoying person in the White House press corps, and that’s saying something considering how crowded the field is. https://t.co/jMwFfEPy0m

For those who live outside the United States and who are wondering if all Americans are as annoying and obnoxious as CNN's Jim @Acosta, the answer is no.
He is a national embarrassment. https://t.co/0KTNtkKbnb

To be a grown adult, Acosta has a whole lot of growing up to do. His approach to journalism is tiresome, not only for conservatives who find his leftism plus his attitude repulsive, but also for those who unfortunately get lumped into the same category with him.
Let’s hope he learns some manners and how to conduct himself like a professional.
