Jim Acosta, CNN’s White House correspondent best-known for being the most vocal provocateur in the press pool, took it to a new level in Singapore yesterday. Watch (below) as Acosta interrupts the historic summit between President Donald J. Trump and North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-un by shouting questions at the most inappropriate time imaginable.
As President Trump was signing the document, Acosta indignantly shouted, “Mr. President, did we agree to denuclearize?”
As it would have been an inappropriate moment to react, Trump remains silent. That is when Acosta asked another question: “Did you talk about Otto Warmbier, sir?”

That was not the only moment during the summit that Acosta made it about himself as he desperately sought attention.
Earlier in the day, Acosta yelled questions at Trump from a significant distance away, shouting, “Mr. President, how is the meeting going so far, sir? Any progress, Mr. President?”
After getting no response, Acosta continued, shouting, “Mr. Kim will you give up your nuclear weapons, sir?”

CNN “The most Distrusted Name in News, We don’t report, We Distort!”
They cannot simply report the news as it happens, they have to become part OF the news. Not journalism.
Acosta was admonished on Twitter for his childish behavior, and many are calling for his White House press credentials to be pulled.
