CNN reporter Jim Acosta on Wednesday tweeted a photo of himself staring at himself in a mirror.

“Getting ready to bring some #realnews to @colbertlateshow with @StephenAtHome #nottheenemy," Acosta tweeted.

As you can imagine, the internet went nuts.

Many of the responses were hysterical — and most of them were critical of Acosta for his attention-seeking behavior.

That is just a very small sample of some of the responses to Acosta’s self-love photo.

The CNN correspondent has been one of the most combative members of the press toward President Donald Trump. He has routinely interrupted events and shouted questions at the president at inappropriate moments. When Trump doesn’t answer, he usually “reports” that Trump refused to answer.

Trump has labeled Acosta and CNN “fake news,” which he claims is the “enemy of the people.”
