Jim Acosta is back in the news again. Few people arise the ire of the awakened American people as much as he does nowadays.
It was a rough day for CNN’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta, who was heckled by an angry crowd at a Trump rally. People, including one infuriated lady, chanted “CNN sucks!” and told the reporter to “go home.”
The heated encounter occurred as Republican supporters gathered on Monday night at Airport High School in West Columbia, South Carolina, where US President Donald Trump held a campaign rally for Governor Henry McMaster, who is running in the state primary. CNN sent White House correspondent Jim Acosta to cover the massive GOP rally.
Acosta, who has challenged Trump on numerous occasions in the past, was waiting for the president’s arrival in the press area. All of a sudden, members of the crowd showed up holding signs that read “CNN fake news.” As their wrath grew, they began chanting “Go home, Jim!”
The video in question:

You know shit is getting real when elderly women and based deplorable magapede homos are starting to rail for pitchforks and forming mobs to kill lying journalists like Jim.
At one stage, a woman approached Acosta and told him what she really thinks of corporate media. Shouting “take him out!” she waved her hands in his direction and urged the other attendees to heckle the CNN reporter.
“I have every right to be here,” Acosta is heard telling the woman in a video posted by an AP correspondent.
Here’s some video of a woman berating @Acosta. This went on for several minutes as many in the crowd cheered her on. As someone who’s covered my share of Trump rallies, it feels like 2016 all over again. pic.twitter.com/j0SF2nFDvG

The old woman is an immigrant judging by her accent. Probably from a country where the people periodically kill annoying journalists when they’ve had enough and don’t have this holy cow association with the fourth estate.
Just a guess.
These are the White people of good character that we do want immigrating to the US, btw.
White immigrants who will harass journalists at Trump rallies are exactly what America needs right now. The more irreverent and disrespectful the better. Fuck these pontificating paragons of hypocrisy.
He’s CNN’s White House guy and the people are right to be mad at him.
I think it’s a good tactic to personify the media in one or two individuals. It’s an Alinsky tactic. It’s not just “the media” but it’s actually Jim Acosta, the big fake phony and his cabal of freaks who are specifically to blame.
