CNN journalist Jim Acosta has had his fair share of run-ins with Donald Trump and his outgoing press secretary, Sarah Sanders during his many visits to the White House but an incident at a Christmas party has to be the strangest.

The reporter, who is currently promoting his new book, The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to reveal a few of the bizarre interactions that he has had with the Trump administration over the years.

Shortly after he had his press credentials for the White House restored after being accused of assault following a heated exchange with Trump in November, Acosta said that he had been invited to the 2018 White House Christmas party after Kimmel asked him what his relationship with her was like.

Bizarrely she and Bill Shine, a former White House deputy chief of staff for communications approached Acosta and he claims that they wanted to sing the '12 Days of Christmas' together, which obviously made Acosta uncomfortable.

It was funny, after they took away my press pass, which we got back in court, there was a Christmas party for the press and some of the folks at the White House she and this guy, Bill Shine, who has worked for the president for a while and they wanted to sing the '12 Days of Christmas.'

I'm thinking to myself, ok wait a minute, we've just been through this press pass court case and we got to 'five gold rings' and I'm like, 'I'm outta here.'

Kimmel, bemused that they wanted to sing that song between just the three of them called the story 'the craziest thing he's ever heard' which Acosta agreed with.

It was. I don't know if it was 'Deck the Halls' or 'deck the correspondent'.

Kimmel added that it sounded like something from a horror movie, which Acosta also agreed with him on.

Wow. That is really very disturbing. It sounds like something from a horror movie.

Elsewhere in the interview, Acosta spoke about his interactions with other Trump staff members such as Sean Spicer, Hope Hicks and Stephanie Grisham.
