Acosta brags on hot mic he intentionally disrupted summit: ‘Hey, if they’re not going to let me in the f**king meeting’

CNN’s Jim Acosta was caught on a hot mic bragging that he had intentionally disrupted the historic peace summit between North Korea’s Kim Jong Un and President Trump as petty revenge for him not being allowed to sit in on their denuclearization meeting.

Acosta was reportedly heard bragging: “Hey, if they’re not going to let me in the f*cking meeting, that’s what happens. That’s the way it goes, baby.”  Breitbart’s Joshua Caplan posted the audio on Twitter. Acosta has not denied that he made the comments.

While Kim Jong Un and President Trump were signing the historic denuclearization agreement, Acosta shouted out: “Mr. President, did we agree to denuclearize?”

After Trump answered, Acosta then yelled: “Did you talk about Otto Warmbier, sir?”

Shortly afterward, Acosta blurted out: “Mr. Kim will you give up your weapons, sir?”

After the outburst, President Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, tweeted that Acosta’s press credentials should be revoked. Acosta has repeatedly shown that his interest is in making himself the center of news rather than covering it.

This is not the first time that Parscale has called out Jim Acosta’s shameless showboating.

As BizPac Review has reported, Brad Parscale called for Acosta’s press credentials to be stripped after he trolled President Trump when he was interacting with children during the White House Easter egg roll.

“I think the White House should pull his credentials because he yelled questions, as he continues to do at inappropriate times, while the President was coloring books with children,” Parscale tweeted in April 2018. “Disrespectful, and would have never been allowed previously.”

Many Americans agreed with Parscale that we have never witnessed such blatant partisan media disrespect toward a sitting United States president.

Imagine what would’ve happened if a Fox News reporter had repeatedly disrupted Barack Obama at international summits. That reporter would no doubt have immediately been slammed as racist and his career would have been destroyed.

Since President Trump took office, Acosta has repeatedly hijacked high-profile meetings and White House events in his desperate bid to become the day’s viral YouTube sensation.

In June 2017, Acosta played the “You-Ignored-Me” card when he accused WH press secretary Sarah Sanders of not calling on him even though there were many other media outlets at the press briefing besides CNN.

In December 2017, Sanders shut Acosta down when he repeatedly interrupted her as she was trying to reply to his question.

Jim Acosta excitedly posted this Twitter photo with Hillary Clinton’s newly-single comrade Huma Abedin.

Like his CNN colleague April Ryan, Acosta has thirstily raised his public profile by attacking President Trump and his aides and using the WH press briefings to draw attention to himself.

Jim Acosta heckled at Trump rally to chants of ‘Tell the truth!’ and ‘CNN sucks!’

In January 2017, Acosta rudely interrupted President Trump during his first press conferences since being elected. Trump shut down the CNN clown in epic fashion when he quipped: “You are fake news!”
