CNN’s Jim Acosta decided to shout at President Trump during an event Friday.

Acosta’s outburst was so bad that others in the audience shushed him.


Acosta was shouting, “Mr. President, will you stop calling the press the enemy of the people!?” when he was shushed.

He, of course, tweeted about the event afterward.

Acosta is presumably trying to tie yesterday’s horrific shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Maryland to Trump’s criticism of the press.

He wasn’t the only member of the mainstream media to try to make this connection, yet there is zero evidence that there was any political motivation to the shooting. (RELATED: Journos, Leftists Blame Trump For Maryland Newsroom Shooting)

According to police, the suspect had “some sort of vendetta” against the paper dating back to 2011.
