Here's a thread on the ridiculous behavior from CNN's Jim Acosta:

1. Acosta repeatedly interrupted President Donald Trump during a press conference on January 11, 2017.

Trump responded: "I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news."
2. Acosta tries to grandstand the administration during a press briefing on immigration.

Stephen Miller crushes him over his complete lack of knowledge on the subject
3. June 12, 2018, Acosta interrupts a historic signing ceremony with North Korea, shouts questions at President

4. Acosta repeatedly shouts at Trump during the North Korean summit while no other reporters even bother because he is so far away.

He shouts at North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un, "Will you give up your nukes, Sir?"
5. Immediately after he doesn't get a response, Acosta is appears to have been caught on a hot mic saying: "Hey if they're not going to let me in the f*cking meeting, that's what happens... That's the way it goes, baby."

6. July 13, 2018, Trump smacks Acosta at a press conference in the U.K., says: "CNN is fake news. I don't take questions from CNN. CNN is fake news! I don't take questions from CNN. John Roberts of Fox. Let's go to a real network."
7. July 30, 2018, Acosta shouts and yells at the end of a press conference, an aide has to tell him: "Move, Jim! Let’s go! Keep going Jim. Let’s go. We’re leaving. Come on Jim. Go. We’re done."
8. June 26, 2017, Acosta loses it during press briefing because the cameras were turned off.

The whole point of turning off the cameras was to discourage grandstanding and attention seeking behavior from "reporters" like Acosta.
9. December 11, 2017, Acosta repeatedly interrupts Sarah Sanders and prevents other reporters from having an opportunity to talk and ask questions.

10. June 29, 2018, Acosta screams at Trump from across the room: "Mr. President, will you stop calling the press the enemy of the people?!"

The man in front of him repeatedly turned around and told him to be quiet.
11. Acosta had been warned not to play his games during the signing of the National Defense Authorization Act.

Acosta did it anyways.
