CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta outright heckled President Trump on Friday at the White House. Trump delivered remarks celebrating the six-month anniversary of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. He began his address by expressing condolences for the journalists killed in the Annapolis attack Thursday, saying, “Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job.”

After Trump spoke, the CNN reporter yelled at the president, “Will you stop calling the press the enemy of the people, sir?” while other guests stood respectfully and clapped. One shushed Acosta.

This is CNN: The network has repeatedly questioned Trump’s mental state and suggested the president has “early-onset dementia.”

Acosta boasted on Twitter, “Of course we are not going to be shushed.”

CNN’s chief media narcissist had zero interest in talking about this tax policy that has made Americans’ lives better. It was #AllAboutMe time with a heaping side of victimhood. Allow me to whip out the world’s tiniest violin.
