As attendees in West Columbia, South Carolina awaited President Donald Trump’s arrival for the Henry McMaster rally the crowd let CNN and Jim Acosta know they were not welcome.
An elderly woman was front and center as the crowd was chanting “CNN sucks” and “Jim go home”, berating the political activist masquerading as a journalist as the crowd cheered her on. You can hear her telling people off camera to get him out of the arena!
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

Unfortunately, and like it or not as Acosta tells her in this short clip, he does have a right to be there. Of course he whined about it…
CNN: @Acosta: "While we have had people come up to us and be nice. I had an elderly woman just a short while's come up to me—she came up to me & said that we at CNN should get the f*** out of this auditorium… She turned to the crowd & whipped them up into a frenzy." pic.twitter.com/KRDP4tpnFJ

While we despise CNN and their “reporters” the First Amendment applies to them too.
The Left needs to understand we’re just playing by their rules now. It can all stop tomorrow if they would act like civilized adults instead of vindictive spoiled brats who didn’t get what they want.
Still, it’s quite entertaining to see this woman get in his face!
