WATCH: Trump supporters boo and insult CNN reporter’s appearance as he tries to film live segment
As Donald Trump has ratcheted up his hateful rhetoric against the media, his fans have grown increasingly hostile to the reporters on the ground covering the campaign.
On Saturday, CNN’s Jim Acosta posted video of Trump supporters screaming at him as he tried to file a live report.
“Tell the truth,” the crowd chanted, and “CNN sucks!”
When Acosta tried to engage some members of the crowd, they became even more abusive, Mediaite said, telling Acosta he looks “like a woman” and shouting insults.
