CNN's Jim Acosta Heckled At Trump Rally In Tampa

CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta was loudly heckled by supporters of President Donald Trump at presidential rally in Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

As Acosta — a sharp questioner of the president and a frequent target of his ire — reported live from the event, a crowd of rally attendees surrounding him chanted "CNN sucks" and shouted, "traitor," and "you're a liar."

Acosta, who frequently butts heads with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during press briefings, was similarly heckled by Trump supporters at a June rally, where he was both yelled at and asked for autographs. Earlier this month, the president denied Acosta the opportunity to ask him a question at a press conference in the UK, calling CNN "fake news."
