CNN reporter Jim Acosta REALLY wants to be in front of the camera again, as evidenced by today’s pitiful pleading with White House press secretary Sean Spicer to turn the camera’s back on at daily press briefings, which have been reduced to only audio productions as of late.
As Spicer was in an exchange with another reporter, Acosta interrupted as if he were the only one in the room, leading Spicer to take a shot at Acosta’s vanity.
“There’s no camera on, Jim,” Spicer said snarkily, reminding Acosta that he will no longer be able to perform for the camera.
“Maybe we should turn the cameras on, Sean!” Acosta shouted. “Why don’t we turn the camera’s on?” he began yelling repeatedly like a three-year-old begging his daddy for a piece of candy.

Spicer and Acosta, who President Trump once publicly referred to as “really fake news,” have been feuding since Acosta referred to Spicer as “kind of useless” and Spicer called his comments “sad.”
Whether you agree or not with the camera’s being pulled, Acosta’s embarrassing pleading — watching him melt because he can’t show his face — kind of makes the point for shutting off the cameras in the first place.
