CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta actually shouted a good question at North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un on Monday.
Acosta is known for shouting irrelevant questions at the most inappropriate times — for example, asking about DACA at this year’s White House Easter Egg Roll while Trump colored with children. This time, however, he got it right. (RELATED: Jim Acosta Yelled At Trump While He Was Coloring With Children At White House Easter Egg Roll)
As Kim Jong Un and Trump walked into the line of sight of reporters, Acosta, the sole White House pooler on duty, shouted several questions about the progress of their meetings. Trump eventually stopped and responded, telling Acosta that he thought the meetings were “very good.”
“Mr. Kim, will you give up your nuclear weapons, sir?” Acosta added as the two leaders turned away.

Acosta’s antics are well known and well covered at the Caller, but annoying a murderous dictator about his plans to potentially get rid of his nukes seems like a just pursuit.
