On Tuesday, CNN’s Jim Acosta was heckled while covering a campaign rally in Tampa where President Trump is scheduled to speak. Loud boos and chants of “CNN sucks!” erupted when Acosta stood to give a report from the rally. Apparently, people screamed “CNN sucks” and “you’re a liar” and chanted of “fake news” and “Trump, Trump.” One protester held a “CNN Sucks” sign behind Acosta.
And, this is how conservatives protest. Peacefully and calmly! Despite chants, there was no use of physical strength. We conservatives are not like the left and cannot adopt their nasty, harassing way of protesting.
Unfortunately, CNN political analyst April Ryan does not feel the same. On Wednesday evening, April told CNN host Don Lemon that she believes that CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s life was in danger at President Donald Trump’s Tuesday rally in Tampa, Florida.
April Ryan: “That’s a serious moment and a serious place. And Jim Acosta’s life, in my opinion, was in jeopardy that night. There was a safety issue.”
She also complained that reporters did not get Secret Service detail. Ryan also said reporters like herself need security like the secret service detail White House Spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders received after a left-wing Virginia restaurant owner kicked her out of his establishment.
Ryan then shrugged off Sarah Sanders getting kicked out and harassed at the Red Hen restaurant last month. “She gets run out of a hen house a couple weeks ago, and gets Secret Service detail,” Ryan said dismissively.
“We don’t have Secret Service detail. This president — President Donald Trump — has stoked the flames for reporters to feel like they are in jeopardy. Their lives are in jeopardy. Their safety is in jeopardy,” Ryan said, before attacking Sanders for getting security herself: “She gets taxpayer-funded security for something that she stokes.”
Lemon said of Sanders getting Secret Service, “They need it, and many journalists need it now because of what this president and this administration has done.”
Ryan then said, “I’m raising my hand. I’m one of those,” to which Lemon responded, “A lot of us are.”
First, all this woman does is ask idiotic questions during White House briefings and disrespect Sarah Sanders. She then later gets destroyed by Sarah Sanders and embarrasses herself. Free press? Sure but where are the pro-Trump press!? Why is it constantly a room full of the anti-Trump press? Why are these news outlets able to cover 90% negative coverage on the President? This bias BS is what’s causing the problem.
And the chant was CNN sucks. Not get Jim Acosta, shame on you Jim, get out of here, you don’t belong here with decent folks. Those are the types of things said to Sanders, Neilson, Bondi, and others. They were personally assaulted, Jim wasn’t even close to being assaulted. No one pelted him with eggs, ripped clothing items he was wearing off, didn’t spit in his face.
So, the only way his life was in danger is if he found himself drowning in his own pity.
