"CNN Sucks!" - White House Reporter Heckled And Booed At Trump Rally

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta had a rough time at a Trump rally in South Carolina Monday night. The CNN White House correspondent was repeatedly heckled by an angry crowd, including one woman who hurled chants of "CNN sucks" at the reporter and told him to "go home." The rally took place at Airport High School in West Columbia, South Carolina, where Trump made an appearance on behalf of Governor Henry McMaster, who is facing a runoff vote on Monday. But unsurprisingly, members of the crowd showed up holding signs that read "CNN Fake News" chanting "Go home, Jim!"

At one point, an elderly woman, whom Fox News later identified as Maria Rojas, approached Acosta, heckled him, and accused him of not respecting the United States.

Acosta later said on CNN that "while we have had some people come up to us and be very nice this evening, I did have an elderly woman come up to me...and said that we at CNN should get the f**k out of this auditorium."

The crowd continued to make Acosta's day difficult by shouting "CNN sucks" while holding up signs criticizing the network as Acosta tried to deliver his report.

Members of the crowd also yelled "go home Jim" and "Fake News".

Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, has recently called for the reporter’s press credentials to be withdrawn after Acosta shouted questions at Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un during the summit in Singapore earlier this month, as RT reminds us. But Acosta has had other run-ins with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

I was at the grocery store last weekend and I see a father and son doing some shopping after obviously coming from a baseball game.  Name on the back both of their t-shirts is "Acosta".  I ended up behind them at checkout, made a little small talk, and then mentioned I noticed their last name was Acosta.  In about 3 microseconds the father blurts out "No relation.  We don't like that guy either."  I just chuckled a little.  He had obviously been through this routine before.

I saw Jim Acosta at a grocery store in Tampa yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn't want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.

He said, "Oh, like you're doing now?"

I was taken aback, and all I could say was "Huh?", but he kept cutting me off and going huh? huh? huh? and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen milky way bars in his hands without paying.

The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like "Sir, you need to pay for those first." At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.

When she took one of the candy bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually to prevent any 'electrical infetterence', and then turned around and winked at me. I don't even think that's a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

That's not crybaby behavior, that's 'entitlement' behavior, same with any of the psychos, peds or puppets in DC, London, Hollywood, or any major western city's cops... they've grown accustomed to thinking so highly of themselves because they aren't held responsible for their actions.... but then they are all OWO, libtard or contard makes no difference, some might be more erudite than others, but the end result is the same.... either you are SG or you are not, and if not, you are just OWO.... being outed and phased out as no longer necessary.

In this case of CNN, they are old media, Hollywood as well as DC et al, have the same OWO problem.... the realization that they aren't special, which will come as quite the shock as the gate gets locked behind them... no need for sheep dogs when the herd is culled and sent to market.

Not to worry.  Bambos, Warren Cuttlet, and Cates are opening a special hospital for them.  Suggest they sign up for that 'health care' asap' it will be standing room only come 2020, or may be 2018 late fall. There will be 8 by 8 photos of Obuma and Hiltery so they can feel like it was a victory after all.

Projection. It was you and the rest of Gimme Dats who sucked Pookies dick everyday for 8 years in exchange for some "free shit". "Obama gonna pay my mortage" "I dont have to pay my bills anymores now" Yes we know who the sheep are bitch. And its almost slaughter time. Maybe we'll make a movie about it: "Silence of the Lambs II, we killed all the sheepy libtarbs"

I said you were an Obama fan. And you are. So fuck off with the bullshit excuses. And nothing to offer perfectly describes you and the rest of the leftists. You are desperate at this point because you know you are losing. We "deplorables" are going to be ruling your life for the remainder of it, so you might as well get used to it. Another Trump term will have you in a psychiatric facility where you belong. Another Trump Supreme Court nomination will ensure it. You think your mangina aches now? Just wait until 2020 and another Trump term.

AM, aren’t you being a little hard on Bulgars?

He is obviously susceptible to suggestion which compounds his personal problems. This will only serve to drive him/it to retreat further into fantasy.

Word is, if Trump gets enough done in his first term he may not run in 2020. Pence would then come in and traumatize these poor devils even more. For God sake man, Bulgars will likely be driven to suicide. Have a heart! (Or not)
