On Monday, CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta – or otherwise known as our favorite reporter – was shut down by a Trump aide for shouting questions at President Trump during a photo op with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, the Daily Wire reported.
“Mr. President, Mr. President,” shrieked Acosta, “if there was no collusion, why does Rudy Giuliani consider there’s no crime in collusion?”
A Trump aide quickly interjected to command Acosta to move along. “Move, Jim!” yelled the female staffer. “Let’s go! Keep going, Jim. Let’s go. We’re leaving. Come on, Jim. Go. We’re done.”
A video of the interaction was posted by Mediaite’s Evan Rosenfeld, as seen below.

Acosta was referring to one of Trump’s attorney’s, Rudy Giuliani, and his recent comments on the Russia/Trump collusion accusation, for which there is still no evidence.
“I’ve been sitting here, looking in the federal code, trying to find collusion as a crime. Collusion in not a crime. Everything that’s been released so far shows the president absolutely innocent. He didn’t do anything wrong,” said Giuliani. “The last two tapes are evidence in his favor.”
