President Trump has a sizable following in the heartland of America, as the bulk of his support comes from blue collar workers, the backbone of this country, who pour their blood, sweat, and tears into providing services and products this nation needs to function at the level it does.
Unfortunately, the federal government has notoriously treated these essential citizens horribly, except for Trump, who has begun to change things and cut a path through the muck and mire of politics as usual, enabling the blue collar crowd to have a legitimate opportunity to thrive.
In light of that, it’s easy to see why so many are passionate fans of the president, and thus, why so many absolutely hate folks like CNN host Jim Acosta who tend to be rude to the commander-in-chief.Advertisement - story continues below
In fact, during a rally in Tampa, Trump supporters let Acosta know exactly what they thought of him and the CNN news network, and it wasn’t pretty.
During a rally at the Florida State Fairgrounds Expo Hall in Tampa on Tuesday night, attendees gathered behind Acosta as he did a live report for the liberal network. They chanted “liar” and “CNN sucks” and “tell the truth” — so loudly that Acosta had to break off his report.Trending:
One protester held a sign that read “CNN Sucks!”
The group “Blacks For Trump” led the chants at one point.

Acosta, as he does, whined about the episode.
“Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa. I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt. We should not treat our fellow Americans this way. The press is not the enemy,” Acosta wrote on Twitter.

“At one point Acosta told Wolf Blitzer, ‘You can hear there is a chorus of boos and other chants from this Trump crowd here … saying things like “CNN sucks,” “go home,” and “fake news.” Wolf, obviously all of things are false. We’re staying right here. We’re going to do our job and report on this rally to all of our viewers tonight,'” Mediaite reported.
There has not been a time in recent memory that the mainstream media in America has been more hated than they are right now, and the beast that is opposing them is one of their own creation.
For years now, the media has abandoned journalistic integrity, opting instead to become the propaganda arm of the modern socialist Democratic Party, a choice that they are now receiving much well deserved blowback for. If they were fair and balanced in their coverage, seeking to uphold facts rather than force ideology on their viewers, they would be much more respected.
People don’t need to be told how or what to think. Give them the facts and they will figure it out on their own.
