CNN’s Jim Acosta has a long history of embarrassing himself with rude behavior. And a historic meeting between President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un would not be enough to prevent him from doing so again.
After Trump and Kim emerged from their one-on-one meeting on a balcony Acosta blurted out “Mr. President, how is the meeting going so far, sir?”
Trump responded with “Very good, very very good. Excellent relationship. Thank you, thank you very much.”
Acosta then rudely shouted, “Mr. Kim will you give up your nuclear weapons, sir?” as they left.
Acosta was very proud if his behavior, tweeting out a video of the incident:

Yes, it’s the job of reporters to ask questions. But there is a time and place for everything. And Acosta has a history of trying to make events all about himself. And we’re not the only people to notice this. Check out these tweets:

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
