Supporters of President Trump made one thing clear during a rally in Tampa, Florida on Tuesday evening: they do not like CNN.
As the supporters gathered together, with unified voices, they shouted a litany of things at CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta, who was at the scene covering the rally.
This was no small affair or just a handful of people, this was the full force of the Trump-supporting, jam-packed venue. The crowd shouted phrases like “CNN sucks,” “Fake news,” and “Go home” so loudly that it nearly drowned out Acosta’s voice in front of his camera.
The Daily Caller reports that the chanting was so loud that Acosta was “practically being drowned out.”
Better send in some back-up…
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer checked up on Acosta during the rally and even on CNN’s programming, the anti-CNN chants could be heard.
“Wolf, just to give you a sense of what’s happening right now, you can hear there is a chorus of boos and other chants from this Trump crowd here in Tampa, Florida they’re, saying things like, ‘CNN sucks,’ ‘go home,’ and ‘fake news.’ Wolf, obviously all of those things are false,” Acosta said.
“We’re staying right here, we’re going to do our job and report on this rally for all of our viewers tonight,” Acosta added, as the crowd behind him can be heard shouting “CNN sucks.”
“As you should,” Blitzer encouraged.

Here’s more on the heckling, from BizPac Review:
Trump supporters around the United States are furious at Acosta, who repeatedly pulls clownish stunts in a bid to undermine President Trump and make himself the headline.
Millions of Americans are also fed-up with CNN, which attacks Trump around the clock and pushes false anti-Trump narratives in a bid to pander to its small liberal audience.
CNN has been criticized as the left-wing propaganda arm of the Democratic Party, and the public is starting to turn away from its nonstop biased coverage.
As BizPac Review previously reported, Acosta was heckled last month at a South Carolina Trump rally, where the crowd shouted, “Go home Jim!” and “Fake news!” hours before Trump arrived at the venue.
Besides CNN’s perpetual leftist news coverage and anti-Trump stories, Acosta himself has pulled a number of stunts under the Trump administration to make his supporters abhor him. Acosta will shout over others during White House press briefings and he was recently caught admitting to trying to disrupt the meeting between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un by shouting at the men.
