A day filled with sacred music and children’s laughter. A day of hope, joy and love. And the President’s annual Egg Roll is emblematic of re-birth. The President leaves politics at the door for a few moments and focuses on family.
For CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta, none of that matters, not when Donald Trump is President. Acosta used the occasion to batter the President with comments about DACA.
Benny Johnson of the Daily Caller tweeted footage of Acosta’s outbursts. Behind a wall of reporters and photographers, Acosta hollered at President Trump, who was seated with a group of children, coloring.

President Trump nonchalantly replied.
Then he continued coloring with the group of children Acosta, dissatisfied with the answer, shouted back. You can hear Acosta yelling into a crowd of reporters as a marching band plays in the background.
The word “kill” really sticks out. It’s especially aggressive on Easter, a day of reverence and re-birth, but all the more so amid the festivities, at an event for children.
It’s the lack of respect for the President, the malicious pursuit.
It’s not only the disruptiveness of politics at a light-hearted event. It’s the lack of respect for the President, the malicious pursuit. It’s fair to assume that it never happened when Obama was President. The media was too busy idolizing him.
In fact, much of the coverage of this year’s Egg Roll focused on nostalgia for an era in American history that was not as verdant as they assumed.
