A young boy attending the White House Easter Egg Roll took a much-needed break from the holiday festivities to photobomb CNN live on air, screaming ‘Fake News’ at the camera and throwing up the dreaded ‘x’ symbol with his arms.
The lovable scamp crowded in to the camera around 11am, as CNN’s senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta was briefing the network on Vice President Mike Pence’s trip to South Korea.
It was then that the boy made his move, mouthing 'fake news' at the camera and brandishing an 'x' symbol with his arms. It is fairly common for people to ‘photobomb’ news anchors conducting live interviews, but it’s rare for someone to call out a major network so directly, especially for a child.
The boy can be seen wearing a green shirt and appears directly to the left of Acosta.
Neither anchor seemed to notice the youthful protest. No charges have been filed against him.
