CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta was reporting from President Donald Trump’s upcoming rally in Tampa, Florida when the crowd broke into anti-CNN chants.

CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer checked in on Acosta on Tuesday afternoon only to find him in a less-than-ideal situation.
Acosta was practically being drowned out by a raucous “CNN Sucks!” chant by the crowd behind him.
“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 there, saying things like, ‘CNN sucks,’ ‘go home,’ and ‘fake news,’” Acosta complained. “Wolf, obviously all of those things are false.”
“We’re staying right here, we’re going to do our job and report on this rally for all of our viewers tonight,” Acosta asserted.

This is simply hilarious. Retweet if you agree that CNN truly does suck. pic.twitter.com/XEMVgHiiuD
