Look, reporters are under a lot of pressure when doing live reports. They’ve got to set up the equipment right, they’ve got to make sure everything’s coming in clear…and sometimes they can’t help it when something distracting happens in the background while they face the camera.
CNN’s Jim Acosta was trying to talk about what happened at Donald Trump‘s press conference earlier today, and he didn’t notice that someone wearing a penis costume walked into the frame behind him.
Acosta was in the middle of telling Brooke Baldwin about how Trump’s new attacks on the media caused a divergence from the conference on his veterans fundraiser. As he spoke, someone else came into the shot, and…they definitely looked like balls and a shaft.
Of course, this isn’t the first time something like this has happened when CNN’s gets live feed from Trump Tower.
UPDATE: 4:00 P.M. EST This picture from Yahoo New’s Hunter Walker shows what it said on the man’s sign.
