Journalists were caught on a hot mic making jokes about assassinating former President Donald Trump while waiting outside the D.C. Appeals Court.

The D.C. Court of Appeals on Tuesday began hearing arguments on Trump’s appeal of his presidential immunity claim.

The journalists, while waiting for the former president to arrive at the court, were caught on the hot mic joking with some of his colleagues that someone could assassinate Trump in the same way former President John F. Kennedy was killed.

“You know what the worst part is? Even if he has his window open and he’s hanging out of it, he will be on the other side of the street,” one journalist began, suggesting that they would not be able to get a good angle for a photograph or to ask the former president any question.

A second journalist then responded that based on their position, they would be able to get a good angle if Trump was actually driving himself to the courthouse.

“I mean, if he’s driving, we’ve got a good shot!” the second Journalist responded.

“Yeah, if he’s driving with the front window open?” the first replied.

“Yeah, or if it’s a convertible?” the second said.

“Yeah. I wasn’t thinking about that,” said the first journalist.

“Yeah. Like if he just pulls up —” the second began.

“Like JFK?” the first journalist suggested then, referencing the vehicle in which JFK was assassinated — prompting a laugh from the second journalist. “Maybe someone, just like they told JFK. You know what you should do? You should take a convertible! It’s so nice out!” the first journalist added.

Speculations that Trump could be assassinated heading into the 2024 election have continued to make waves with talk show host Alex Jones maintaining that the deep state will murder the former president.

“Despite that (Trump’s indictment), he’s got 60% against all other Republicans, he’s 15-20 points ahead of Biden. It’s backfired, but the deep state is not going to stop,” Jones told former Fox News host Tucker Carlson. “You know, the Deep State does kill people and that’s their only next move because this is failing.
