A kid attending the annual White House Easter Egg Roll photobombed CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta during a live on-air report Monday.

Two seconds into the video below, a child wearing a light green shirt appears over Acosta's right shoulder and seems to mouth the words "fake news," which is the phrase President Donald Trump has used to describe the cable network. In fact, at a Jan. 11 news conference just days before being sworn in, Trump specifically called out Acosta after the CNN reporter interrupted another question. "Your organization is terrible. ... You are fake news," Trump told Acosta.

On Monday, Acosta once again got the "fake news" treatment. Only this time, his critic wasn't Trump.

Referring to the president taking questions about North Korea's nuclear weapons program at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, which attracts thousands of people each year, CNN anchor Kate Bolduan pointed out the sharp differences between the two situations.

"The juggling act that every president has to do and taking questions on North Korea as tensions rise there and presiding over, as I said, the least tense — or should be — of presidential duties, the Easter Egg Roll," Bolduan said.

But as Bolduan was speaking on the split screen with Acosta, the child was seen epically photobombing the reporter on live TV. See for yourself:
