WATCH! Acosta Whines After Being Removed For Badgering Trump With Asinine Questions *VIDEO* #Trump #CNN #o4anews

CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta was shouted down by a White House aide on Monday as he rattled off inane questions to President Trump about mythical collusion between his campaign and Russia.

“Make your way out. Let’s go. Move, Jim, let’s go. Keep going, Jim, let’s go. Jim, we’re leaving. Come on, Jim. Go. We’re done,” the aide can be heard yelling.

As she shouts, Acosta continues to badger the president about why his attorney Rudy Giuliani has repeatedly asserted that collusion is not a crime, despite Trump’s own claims that there was no coordination between his campaign and Moscow.

Acosta’s question and the White House aide’s effort to hustle him out of the room came as Trump wrapped up a photo opportunity with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte ahead of a meeting.

Trump’s White House has had a particularly tense relationship with the fake news broad leader, CNN. Just last week, Kaitlan Collins, a reporter for the network, said she was barred from attending a presidential event after she asked questions deemed “inappropriate” by the White House.

Soon after the event, Acosta was on CNN complaining about getting yelled at “at the top of their lungs” by White House staff.

“I’ve noticed and my colleagues have noticed with more frequency in these sort of Oval Office opportunities, the wranglers, the aides that work with the president are nearly shouting at the top of their lungs to make sure the president’s questions — the questions from the reporters can’t be heard,” Acosta lamented, “I had an aide next to my ear nearly screaming within the last several minutes when the president was with the Italian president in the Oval Office but it’s an example of just how hard they are trying to keep reporters from asking the president questions.”

Earlier this year, Acosta got a similar type of treatment, for the same type of childish behavior, when Jim Acosta bellowed at President Trump as he delivered his first in-person remarks on Thursday’s deadly shooting at The Capital Gazette newspaper in Maryland.

Trump, speaking at an event commemorating the six-month mark of the Republican tax law, said the newsroom shooting “shocked the conscience of our nation.”

“This attack shocked the conscience of our nation and filled our hearts with grief,” Trump said. “Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job.”

Trump said his administration “will not rest until we have done everything in our power to reduce violent crime and to protect innocent life.”

Trump was met with criticism following his remarks for his frequent targeting of the press and comments he has made calling reporters the “enemy of the people.”

“Mr. President, will you stop calling the press the enemy of the people,” Acosta, a frequent target of the president, shouted at Trump.

The CNN reporter also shared a tweet about the incident shortly after the event, in which he stated the president neglected to respond to him.

“I tried to ask the president if he would stop calling us the enemy of the people,” Acosta said in the tweet. “He did not respond.”

The responses from Americans on Twitter were not kind, but they were quite entertaining.

The president and his supporters have targeted Acosta repeatedly, most recently chanting “Go home, Jim!” at the CNN reporter during a Trump rally in South Carolina on Monday. Multiple reporters said a woman verbally attacked Acosta, who was standing in the press area.
