Mediate reported yesterday that CNN’s Jim Acosta gracefully responded to chants of “CNN sucks” from Trump supporting rally attendees in Sanford, Florida where the president held his first rally since contracting COVID-19 more than a week ago.
Highlights fom the rally –
“Under my leadership, we’re delivering a safe vaccine and a rapid recovery like no one can even believe,” Trump told the cheering crowd. “If you look at our upward path, no country in the world has recovered the way we have recovered. ( Our response was first rate and phenomenal. I immediately banned travel to and from China. That should have solved everything. That should have kept the virus out. I can’t for the life of me figure how more than 200,000 have died from COVID. It’s just not possible ).”
“I feel so powerful,” the president said later, beating his chest like Tarzan. “I’ll walk into that audience. I’ll walk in there. I’ll kiss everyone in that audience. I’ll kiss the guys ( – no, I’m not gay – ) and I’ll kiss the beautiful women… everybody, ( I’d even grab ’em by the you-know-what’s – but not the guys – and give ’em a big, fat, wet COVID kiss )!”
Reporting on the highlights from the rally, Acosta revealed the president’s campaign plans to Blitzer, and reminded him that Trump is down by at least ten points in most polls. In the background the familiar chant of “CNN sucks” could be heard from the crowd.
“Well, there you have it, Blitz,” Acosta finished. “As this crowd is chanting that there are members of the press here who suck ( – apparently, myself included – ) I should also point out what also sucks – getting the coronavirus. ( But nothing sucks more than a Trump c*** sucker, which is what this entire crowd seems to be ).”
The crowd booed in protest, but Acosta ignored it.
