A hot mic captured two journalists making jokes alluding to the assassination of former President Donald Trump while waiting for his arrival at a federal courthouse on Tuesday.

The courthouse is the venue for Trump’s pending criminal immunity appeal, with oral arguments scheduled for today.

This troubling occurrence took place outside the E. Barrett Prettyman U.S. Courthouse, with news teams on standby, having set up their equipment along the anticipated route from the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia.

The former president is set to appear before the DC Circuit Court of Appeals following District Judge Tanya Chutkan’s refusal to dismiss two motions that invoked First Amendment protections and presidential immunity.

According to Mediate, the appeal is to be heard by a panel of three judges: Judge J. Michelle Childs, a recent appointee by Joe Biden; Judge Florence Pan, also a Biden appointee; and Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson, a veteran judge appointed by President George H.W. Bush.

During the wait, a live news feed from AP unintentionally captured a conversation between reporters positioned to capture Trump’s entrance.

Their conversation quickly devolved from complaints about the difficulty of photographing the former president to inappropriate remarks.

The exchange went as follows:

Journo 1: “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.”

Journo 2: “I mean, if he’s driving, we’ve got a good shot!”

Journo 1: “Yeah, if he’s driving with the front window open?”

Journo 2: “Yeah, or if it’s a convertible?”

Journo 1: “Yeah. I wasn’t thinking about that.”

Journo 2: “Yeah. Like if he just pulls up–”

Journo 1: “Like JFK?”

Journo 2: (laughs)

Journo 1: “Maybe someone, just like they told JFK. You know what you should do? You should take a convertible! It’s so nice out!”

The specific affiliations of these journalists remain unknown.
