CNN correspondent Jim Acosta had a hilarious response to President Donald Trump's increasing uninterest in answering reporters' questions while speaking from a rally he held in Tampa, Florida.

In the midst of the crowd, chanted insults could be heard against the reporter — but he took it in stride as he spoke to host Anderson Cooper.

"You're hearing some of the insults being hurled at us right now," Acosta said. "I've been talking to some of these folks this evening, even though they're being pretty negative towards us right now."

"I answered a bunch of questions from some of these Trump supporters here about all sorts of things — a lot more questions than the president has taken from us in recent days," he quipped.
